Summer Track Season Opener
This weekend East Cobb Cheetahs will open the summer track season with the Boys & Girls Club Invitational at New Manchester High School. There are several veterans and a few new-comers that are looking forward to a great season opener.
Returning athletes like Allyria McBride (left) is coming off a 2nd place finish in the high jump Georgia Middle School State Championships with a PR jump of 4'10" and looks to make some noise in the open 400m dash as well. Patrick Harris (ctr) will make a strong move for the 400m hurdles and triple jump this summer. Damilola Shodeinde (right) will push the envelope in the long jump and 100 hurdles this summer. Superstar JaVaughn Moore (not pictured) will take a much needed week off since he ended his high school career as a State Champion in the 100m dash, breaking the state record with a 10.40, and placed 2nd in the 200m dash with a time of 21.31.
New-comer Alayah Brown (W11) has found a new love in the aero-javelin. At the spring finale, this mid-distance runner threw 58'03" to grab a second place victory. With that being her first time ever, we have found a field event that suits her just fine.
On the boys side, new-comer Xavier Willis (M13), has already jumped 17'06" in the long jump and we are just getting started. He has also dropped 5 seconds in the 400m which places him in the 10 top for his age group here in Georgia. Look for him to make a grand showing this summer.
Summer Track Registration is Now Open!
Summer track season is here and the only thing on East Cobb Cheetahs athletes' minds are the AAU Junior Olympics. Each Championship race from AAU District to AAU Club Nationals, puts them one step closer to their goal of the AAU Junior Olympics.
Each athlete sets a goal of making the finals, improving inch by inch or throw by throw, in hopes to hit the podium and ultimately win the gold. Athletes like sprinter JaVaughn Moore, triple jumper Patrick Harris, 400M runner Allyria McBride, and hurdler Damilola Shodeinde are looking forward to upsetting a few people. We can't leave out new-comer sprinter Xavier Willis, who has been to the rodeo before through USATF.
Join us for the action through the summer. It will proved to be an exciting ride.
Countdown to Indoor Track Season
December 16, 2017, we begin our Indoor Track season at the Birmingham Crossplex. As we enter year 8, we are excited about what's to come for East Cobb Cheetahs. With many returning athletes and some new faces, we look forward to producing some great times individually and with our newly formed relays. Fall training has been going well and our middle school clan is very focused and ready to continue where they left off in the spring.
2017 Indoor Records Fell
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!
