by Coach McGaughey
The Mt Sac Relays is one of the most prestigious track meets in the country. It draws the top athletes from all over the US and the World for High School, College and the professional ranks, such as Ashton Eaton , World and Olympic decathlon champ and Alyson Felix, also World and Olympic 400m/200m champ, among others.Our boy David was himself a star this weekend by easily winning the High School Invitational mile in an excellent time of 4:18. He came back the next day and even though he had a sore knee, which put his ability to perform well in question, he won the Seeded 800 meter in 1:53. Both his times are new personal bests and new school records. David is the first track athlete from JFK to qualify for the Mt Sac Relays, and now ...... the first JFK Track athlete to win it!
