Coach Louie Bing, long time coach of Miami Northwestern, and the namesake of one of the largest track & field competitions in Florida, passed away earlier this week. His legacy as a coach will not only live on through the annual Louie Bing Classic track & field meet, but also by way of the Louie Bing Athletic Scholarship Fund which has been serving our youth, and recognizing individuals who have dedicated their lives to helping young men and women through athletics, for more than 30 years. Among his many accomplishments, Coach Bing was inducted into the Florida Track & Field Hall of Fame c/o 1982, and also received the Jimmy Carnes Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001 for his leadership as a track & field coach.
Coach Carmen Jackson and Miami Northwestern Senior High School will be having an event in his honor on Saturday, July 7th. More information will be provided at a later date...
