Louisville Urban League Invite
Sorry this is a little late but I didn't realize the expanse of teams that raced last weekend at the Louisville Urban League Invite. While the Memphis area boys were busy in Arkansas, the Middle Tennessee clubs were likewise notching wins a couple hours north. Here's a quick recap of some of those who claimed victory.
Avia Lane Gets Three Wins
The defending outdoor 100m and 200m state champion for Division I Class AA notched three victories in three different distances on Saturday. Avia Lane won the 60m Dash with a 7.79, won the 200m dash for the second indoor meet in a row with a 25.01, and then tried her had at the 300m dash and won that as well with a 41.21! Rewatch that race here:
Kymora Williams Gets Two Of Her Own
Trial by Fire teammate Kymora Williams raced in the age group below Lane and won two of the same events. She too won the 60m dash and the 200m dash finishing in 7.95 and 25.97. Here is her 200m dash victory.
Williams also placed runner up in the 400m dash with a 60.84. With Lane now in Class AAA, the two will go from teammates to friendly competitors in a couple of months.
RCTC Girls Strong Again
The athlete who beat Williams for the 400m dash victory in the youth division was none other than Camryn Merryman who we profiled last week in our recap of the KYA Indoor Invitational. Merryman essentially matched her time with a 60.15 which was just .03 off the previous week's performance. Rutherford County Track Club teammate, Taylin Segree, came away with the best time of Tennesseans at the distance with a 59.37 even though she didn't come away with the victory.
Team 4mula Brings The Youth
The meet wasn't restricted to just high school and middle school events. The entries went all the way down to 8 and under and Team 4mula dominated the boys 9-10 age group. Brycen Hathaway won the 60m dash with an 8.82 and the 200m dash with a 28.33, PJ Foxx won the 9-10 800m and one mile run with a 2:37 and 5:46, and Ayden Walton won the 400m dash with a 70.06. They'll be coming to a high school track near you in about five years.
