First of all a HUGE Congrats goes out to Myley Alexander and Lily Poulton who represented the Quickfeet Track Club at the USATF Junior Olympic National Finals in Kansas. Both athletes ran PR's in each of their races under extremely Hot and Humid conditions (Record Heat)!!
This past weekend Laveni Vaka, Colton Barber, Sydney Larson, Tiera Orr, Jenny Stewart, Kaylee Carter and Starlee Woodbury all competed at the Hershey National Finals.
