Head Coach Curtis Frye “We had a great day. We survived the first day. We had the girls advance in the 100m, as both Aleen (Bailey) and Erica (Whipple) are running very well. Tiffany (Ross) and Shevon (Stoddart) both advanced in the 400m hurdles and ran smart races. Tiffany and Aleen both advanced in the short hurdles.

The women’s 4x100m relay did well and got the fourth seed. We are not as good as I would like to with our passes, but there is room for improvement tomorrow.

Chalsea (Hammond) looks like she made it the finals of the long jump, but we missed Antoinette making the finals and that was the only shortfall we had today on the women’s side.

On the men’s side, I am really proud of the effort that Tony Allmond made in the long jump. Chuckie (Ryan) got through in the hurdles. Corey Taylor not making the next round of the 110m hurdles was a big blow for us, but Kenneth Ferguson held up in the 400m hurdles and made it to the next round. Fred (Townsend) is in the seventh spot of the decathlon which is really big. Otukile Lekote made it through which will really help us. We are looking for another big day again tomorrow.

Tiffany Ross “It wasn’t that good of a race. I switched bad on the fourth hurdle and the whole race wasn’t what I expected. But I advanced and have two more rounds to get it better. Shevon ran a good race.”

Shevon Stoddart “I have been training hard all year. It was cold out there but I wasn’t going to let it stop me. I am going to the next round and am ready for the next round. I am trying to make it through all the rounds.”

Kenneth Ferguson “I am really disappointed with my race. I have been injured and I am out of shape. The next round I just have to try again to finish.”

Aleen Bailey “I feel really good about reaching the finals. Last year I was unable to make the finals in the 100m dash, so this is a nice accomplishment. It’s my senior year and I want to go out with a bang.”
