YMCA Youth Series #3

by William Marshall

Benswic was represented by eleven individuals at Park Slope Armory YMCA Youth Series #3. We had several PR's and so far we are at a great start.

Though most of us that has had limited practices, new to the team or first time running the event. Benswic Track Club has continue to show why they want to be here. Each sees this as an opportunity to get better, faster and as fun. Whatever it is, our runners gets better at his/her level.

We may just see a 39sec by the end of indoor season.  Christopher Marshall performed in two events 200m (33.33) and 400m (1:17.52 PR), showing he could handle the demand while hitting great times. Emmanuel Marshall 200m (32.88). Joseph Melican 400m (1:18.64 PR), ran especially well considering this was his first 400m.
