The NC Association Meet (aka The NC State Meet) was contested at NC A&T University in Greensboro June 24-26. Many of our athletes competed for the very first time, and several of our returning athletes competed in new events for the first time.
Several folks achieved a PR, or a Personal Record, in their events. We emphasize the importance of this accomplishment, as it is a mark of improvement in skill and technique. Congratulations to all who improved on times or distances.
In addition, we had several athletes who qualified for the Region 3 Meet. This will be held at the Prince George Sports and Leisure Complex in Lanover, Maryland. To qualify for this meet, athletes had to place in the top 8 of their event for their age range. Almost 70% of the athletes we took to the NC Association meet qualified in at least one event. Some in their first year of competing, and others in their first year of competing in their qualifying event(s).
Special note for the following athletes who placed first in their events:
Michelle Cobbs – 17-18 girls Triple Jump
Lee Kania – 13-14 girls Javelin
Chyance King – 8U boys Long Jump
We also saw 10 team records fall, and now have new team marks in the 8U boys 200, 400, and Long Jump; the 11-12 girls Triathalon; the 13-14 girls Pentathalon, 100 and 200; and the 17-18 girls 100m dash, Long Jump and Triple Jump. Congratulations to all!
