Pat Geitner moved to Mt. Morris from Seneca Falls as a freshman in 1984 where he had already competed at the varsity level in track as an 8th grader. During his high school years at Mt. Morris, he participated at the varsity level for 3 seasons in soccer, 3 seasons in basketball, and 4 seasons in track and field. A natural athlete, he became a starter on the varsity soccer team in his sophomore year in spite of never playing that sport in his life prior to that year; which makes it even more impressive that he became a Livingston County All-Star in soccer for two consecutive seasons in 1986 and 1987. In that 1987 season, he was a starting midfielder who helped lead the Blue Devils to the rank of #1 seed in Class D Sectionals. This is the only team in our school’s history to be the #1 seed in soccer. In basketball, he was the leading scorer in a tough sectional game against Arkport during his sophomore year in 1986. He continued to be the team’s leading scorer for the entire next season in 1986-87 with an average of 13 points per game. During his senior year, he was one of the leading scorers and was instrumental in the teams’ achievement of a 17-7 record and a trip to the Sectional Finals. Similar to his soccer career, this man was named to the Livingston County All-Star team in basketball for two consecutive seasons in 1987 and 1988. He was also named to the exceptional senior basketball game and as an alternate in the Ronald McDonald game of 1988. In track and field, his performance was simply amazing. In 1986, he set a school record for total points with 210. He then broke his own record in 1987 and again in 1988. During his junior year, he actually set three school records in one meet against Keshequa in the high jump, the 400 meter hurdles, and the 110 meter hurdles. He topped off his athletic career in style during his senior year by winning sectionals in 3 events – the High Jump, Triple Jump, and 110 meter hurdles. He also set three school records that season in two events in the High Jump at 6’5 ¾” and Triple Jump at 42’3”. His high jump level is still second best in school history and his triple jump distance is still a school record today. He capped off this amazing season by winning the Section V Meet of Champions in the High Jump. This led him to become the second person in school history at that time to go to a State Championship and was seeded 3rd in the state in that event. After high school he continued his involvement in athletics by playing 2 seasons of both basketball and golf at Nazareth College.
