Track Update From Coach Whaley:
Over the Spring Break Colonial Track and Field sent 3 seniors to the FSU Relays to compete in the 400, 800, and Long and triple jump. Roberto Brooks and Pashen Williams competed in the 400 and the 800. Over the last 2 weeks Roberto broke his personal best times in both events, first hitting 49.57 in the 400 at Winter Park, and then 1:57.68 in the 800 at the Greyhound Invitational. He finished 9th in the 400 and 24th in 800, hitting a 50.18 and 1:58.16. Pashen Williams also ran both the 400 and the 800. She finally broke her personal best time in the 400 a few weeks back at the Brian Jaeger Open and her 800 has been consistently in the 2:20 category. She finished 6th in the 400 and 9th in the 800, hitting 56.78 and 2:17.93 (her personal best in the 800). Both took on the best competition the state has to offer in those events.
Nyron Tate also competed this weekend in the triple jump and the long jump. He finished 1st in the long jump with 6.83 meters. He finished half a foot over the nearest competitor which is big with the athletes that were there. Please congratulate them on their accomplishments. Wish them luck as they go to UF this week to once again compete and showcase their talents.
