Not even the jingle bells attached to the heels of his Bishop Lynch rival would intimidate Jan Meterka, his legs moving like pistons, the sweat dripping off his face, as he crossed the finish line of the 4x440 relay.  Victory at last. Materka’s victory that afternoon in 1972 was one among many accomplishments that secured his election to the Jesuit...
