Summer Season

The summer season saw our team show well, while competing in Connecticut and Massachusetts.

In AAU competition, two members of our team, Cole Brown, and Ethan Rochester qualified for the 2015 AAU Junior Olympics in Hampton Roads, Virginia. Cole traveled to Virginia to compete in the 100 Meter and 200 Meter dashes.

For the final team meet of the summer, we traveled to Massachusetts for the Needham Youth Classic, one of the largest open youth track meets in the northeast.  The team showed well in a number of events, highlighted by wins from Natalee Seipio in the 400M dash, and Schyler Parris in the 400M dash and the 800M run.

We look forward to another great season in 2016!
