What’s most surprising, this is our first year as a track club and we are already performing great. This speaks volume to where this track program is heading.
Our three runners, minus one who couldn’t make it Bryana Marshall for the (200m) performed amazing. Abigail Melican (15-16) in the 2k Steeplechase and 800m, Jordyn Karp (15-16) in the Long Jump and Emmanuel Marshall (9-10) in the Long Jump.
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!
