The Warriors did their very first race today in the form of a 1600 meter time trial and that was just amazing to witness! If I didn't know better you would have thought these kids had been running for a long time but all just started a few weeks ago and some just a few days ago. Solid efforts all around from every single Warrior! Some highlights to point out on the girls side was Miriam Velasco only 11 years old ran a 6:48 for the 1600! and Sophia Pantoja 13 ran 7:27 adn not to be undone Lilly Sanchez 12 ran 8:04! On the boys side Renner Willard only 11 as well ran 7:17 for the 1600 with Jayden Luengas 12 right on his heels at 7:20! And closing out the top 3 Angel Reyes 12 ran 8:18! I mentioned to the kids that many of these times would be in line with incoming freshman at the high school level who are 13 and 14 years old. By the time these kids get to high school they will be very fast and well ahead of their class! The future of distance running in this area is looking very bright indeed! If you have a kid that's interested in join have them come out and try it out! More info on the Warriors Youth home page
