Our 2018 track season did not disappoint. Outside of athletic goals and accomplishments, the coaching staff was able to improve each member’s sense of self-worth because of the time spent in one-on-one and downtime group conversations and activities
We competed in six total meets; with 19 athletes qualifying for 39 events in the National Jr. Olympics in Des Moines, IA. Ten finished in the Top 25, seven finished in the Top 10, and three were All-Americans (from left to right):
Jayden Harberts - 3000m run, finished 5th with a time of 11:05.0 and 1500m run, finished 3rd with a time of 5:04.25
Justin Saje – High Jump, finished 7th with a jump of 6-00.75.
Shamar Heard - 100m dash, finished 7th with a time of 12.11 and 200m dash, finished 3rd with a time of 23.90
The athletes are on a well-deserved break until December 2, 2018 when indoor track season begins, and we already have our eyes set on the 2019 Jr. Olympics in Greensboro, NC.
