About Irv Black:

 Irv Black photoThe Irv Black High School Invitational was renamed in honor of Irv Black, the former Meet Director and Head Coach of New Britain High School and founder of Northeast Sports Timing. The original Big B Invite was created by Coach Black in the 1970's as a multi-day invitational that offered more than the standard events. The meet was later renamed the Ernest Brainard Interscholastic Track and Field Meet and held at Trinity College for many years. After the passing of Coach Black in the summer of 2010, the meet was moved to the Willowbrook facility in New Britain where the stadium bears his name. The meet is under the guidance of a committee of several New Britain residents with ties to the former coach and friend. (See the additional news article about Irv Black at MySportsResults.com).
