Spring is in the Air
Wheeler HS - Spring is here and the Cheetahs are excited about the new season. With several new faces in the sprints and throws, and a year older, The Track Lab meet at Wheeler was a sample of what's to come.
Newcomer Aidan B.(8 & under), threw the turbo javelin 32'4 placing 4th. This was his first meet ever. Twin brother, Amir B. was 5th right behind him. The girls 4 x 400 relay ran an amazing race, winning in a time of 4:41.88, over Striders' TC in 5:02.88.
2017 Indoor Records Fall
Birminhgam, AL - This indoor track season was truly remarkable. The East Cobb Cheetah Track Club showed up and showed out all season long. The TFCUSA National Championship on Sunday January 12th was an exciting finish to the indoor season. Tyanna Carter won the 800M run and set a new record of 2:44.85 shattering the old record of 2:57.60 by more than 12 seconds. James Wainaina was relentless in his events. As a double gold medalist, he won the 800M in a record time of 2:26.82, breaking the old record of 2:38.50 and the 1500M run in 5:06.84. Allyria Mcbride won the high jump and placed 2nd in the 400M with a PR of 103:42.
Earlier in the season, our Boys 13 - 14 division scored in the top 5 every time they hit the track, from the 60M - 1500M run. On January 15th, the won their division at the Alabama Striders Indoor Classic with 38 point over Smyrna Elite Track Club, who finished with 30 points. Winning the 4 x 200M relay indoors was the icing on the cake. Jahlil, Tyler, James, and Tyson ran an amazing 1:50.34, breaking the old record of 2:04.95, considering James is a distance runner. Newcomers: Tyler, Tyson, Jahlil, and Jaheem, along with returnees like James, Gianni, and Zyler are now ready to hit the outdoor stage. Go CheetahNation!
