RECAP FROM COACH GATES:
14 Eagle Tracksters traveled to Torrance, California to participate in the prestigious Mt. SAC Relays this past weekend. This was a greater number than the 11 we took last year - a sign of an improving program. Another sign? We came back with 3 SCHOOL RECORDS!!!
If there was one name to remember from our journey there, it would most certainly be that of Sophomore powerhouse Nick Myers... Nick was EVERYWHERE!!!
This tremendous young man competed in 3 events, and in doing so, scored a PR, going 1:58.64 in his Top 10 finish in the 800m. The other two events were the 4x800m Relay (with Sami Araya, Joe Blakely, and Andrew Jackson) and 4x1600m (with Sami Araya, Blake Miller, and Aidan Singh). Both of these performances were good for School Records. The 4x800m Relay also finished in the Top 10.
Other Top 10 Performances were turned in by Junior Eby Ifyefobi (Discus), Senior Josh Smith (Discus), and, while academic, our Men's 1600 SMR (Oliver Gates, Andrew Jackson, Brock Miller, and Joe Blakely) - which also set a school record.
I am TREMENDOUSLY proud of these kids. They gave their all out there and selflessly thought enough of their teammates to spend Easter morning traveling back.
