Abigail Melican competed at Albany University where the USATF Regional 1 Junior Olympics were held. Despite having injuries during XC season and having an amazing indoor season. Abby came out and performed, what she would call it, “OK”.
Considering, this is her first year competing in track…this is BEYOND amazing. I continue to tell her, she’s going to surprise herself on how great she’ll be. Needless to say, Abby placed 1st in the 2k Steeplechase in her division, which automatically qualifies her to Nationals. She also performed in the 800m as well, placing 7th overall. Extremely PROUD of her hard work!
Another of our runners performed great, considering he had 2 already FOULs, which one of them looked iffy. Only if they just measured it just for the sake of measuring it. Could of been he best jump ever? Though, Emmanuel Marshall didn’t jump he best jump (3.88″) which would’ve placed him within the top to make it to Nationals. It was the experience, that he’s gotten from this. Again, his first year competing and doing Long Jump. We’re excited for what lies ahead for indoor/outdoor track next year. Can we predict 4.35? Who knows…to be cont.
