4 Qualifying Athletes for the USATF Nationals!

The Junior Olympic Regional Championship meet in Greensboro this weekend provided 3 hot days of great performances against strong competition!  We had 16 athletes travel to Aggie Stadium who competed like champions and came home with 16 medals and qualified in 8 races for nationals! It was hot and competitive out there on the track but our athletes ran smart and confident.   It was so fun to watch them run strategic races; finishing strong, passing their competition all the way to the finish line.  That made for some fun and exciting racing to watch!

Congratulations to the whole team on a great season and some fun and fast racing on the track!
