Today was a record breaking day for Sophomore standout, Jenna Young. Jenna Broke the Brooklyn 100 Hurdles record with a run of 16.66. Jenna broke the record previously held by her own coach, Jackie Field, class of 2005. Jenna also took 1st in High Jump and 200 M Dash, as well as a 2nd place finish in 300 Hurdles. Junior, Ashley Chong placed 4th in 100 M Dash and also place in long jump. Laura Nguyen placed 4th in the 100 Hurdles. Throwers Alice Pham took 3rd in discus and Addison Kiser placed 4th in Shot Put.
The boys were lead by dominating performances by Stephen Chhan and Chavon Holton. Stephen won both Shot Put and Discus. Stephen threw a longest disc throw in all of my years coaching, with an unbelievable throw of 117’10”. Chavon edged out Brooklyn;s own Alex Chiclana in both the 110 Hurdles and 300 Hurdles, giving Chanvon 2 1st place finishes and Alex two 2nd place finishes. Donovan Walker placed 1st in long jump and 3rd in High Jump. Sanatana Sammons finished 4th in both 100 and 200 M Dash. Justin Pokorny took 3rd in 200 M Dash. Massiah Baker also took 3rd in the 400 M Dash. Rounding out the scoring was the boys 4 X 100 (Baker, Sammons, Holton, Pokorny) and the 4 X 200 (Baker, Walker, Chiclana, Pokorny). Both relay team took home 1st place and ran their best times of the season.
A phenomenal week for the Brooklyn Track team. Next meet is the Cuyahoga Hts Relays on Saturday, then it’s on to the CVC Championship. I look forward to what this team has in store. The best is yet to come.
