USATF Georgia Association Mourns Today...
We are sad to inform you of the loss of someone who was a valued, vital member of our organization. Murray Sanford, former Georgia Association President, Officials Chair, USATF Officials Hall of Fame Inductee, former Atlanta Track Club President, school teacher, coach, and beloved friend, succumbed earlier today at Kennestone Hospital, Marietta, GA, from an extended illness.
Murray was a gentle man who cared about our sport, our young athletes and our association. He was the first person to arrive at a meet and the last person to leave. He taught many of us how to officiate and how to be good stewards of this sport. He will be missed by all.
