Bill Iezzi: Jim Mohan and the Woodbury Relays

Jim Mohan has been the Woodbury Relays' meet director for the last 31 years and if the previous 30 ran as smoothly as Saturday's meet, they were like clockwork.

Which brings to mind the Helbros wrist watches that go to winners. Mohan and his able workers had about 200 gold watches, whose dials were inscribed with the name of the relays, to give to the boys and girls.

He's been buying those watches for the meet since he started directing them, but no longer. The company is going out of business.

There will be a lot of disappointed athletes if Mohan doesn't come up with another manufacturer.
