Track at American Hebrew Academy
Entering their second meet of the 2017 season, the Sabers were dressed and ready for battle. Not only did they have to face their competition head-to- head, Mother Nature decided she was not quite ready for Spring Break. Kicking off the meet on the field event side, by throwing all personal bests, were our four shot putters: Lucy Calaway, Uche Okoh, Amira Rady and Jyana Seaman. Uche’s throw was also her ticket to qualifying for the state meet in May.
In the sprints and hurdles, Alia Agee shattered her personal record (PR) by four seconds in the 400 meters. Natalia Lindo (300 hurdles) and Jadyn Loftin (200 meters) lowered their PRs by one second and Jasmine Robinson opened up her
season with a tremendous run of 58 seconds in the 300 hurdles.
Finally, on the distance side, knocking off more than 25 seconds from her 3200 meter race last week was Lillian Giles. Winna Xia, Lexi Burger and Ashley Hart embraced the cold and fought the wind for two full laps opening their 800 meter
seasons with new PRs as well.
Overall, our growing team of 30+ ladies continue to show us what Saber Pride is all about by their hard work and determination, anxiously awaiting their next competition in two weeks.
