Track at American Hebrew Academy
The Sabers had a great meet at American Hebrew Academy on Thursday evening. The team had some outstanding first year performances and the upper classmen did an excellent job putting in some of their season’s best efforts and even some all-time personal records. Notably, Favor Idika ran a third place in the 100 and won the overall first place for the 200 meters. Praise Idika and Alia Agee ran great 800 meter races and are learning how to plan their race to be most competitive. Salem’s perennial star, Mariah Slade made an appearance to win the 100 meter dash while Uche Okoh placed a very close second in the shot put and discus. All of the girls ran excellent races and showed excellent teamwork. It is becoming clear that their hard work in practice is starting to pay off!
