Cross Country Team Prepares for Nationals
Mya, Faith, & Rayevan ... Region III Medalists

November 28th, 2011


The next two weeks culminate the completion of the inaugural Cross Country season for Premier Athletics. Coming off a trip to Myrtle Beach for the USATF Region III XC Championship, the team produced some great performances, along with season and personal bests to march towards Nationals. Faith Hill was the top award winner for the girls with her 5th place finish (12:36.58). Rayevan Freeman was close behind in 7th place (12:49.08), while Mya Solomon also finished in the medals with an 18th place finish and a personal and season best (13:19.04). All young ladies qualified for the USATF National XC Championship back in Myrtle Beach on December 10th. In the meantime, they head to Orlando this weekend as definite Top Ten threats in the AAU XC National Championship for the Sub-Bantam division.

Region III Silver Medalist Jevon Leonard
For the boys, Jevon Leonard got within 9 seconds of the Region III Championship. His silver medal performance sets up a big challenge for the USATF National Championship in a couple of weeks. But going into the AAU XC Nationals, Jevon also presents himself as a Top 5 favorite in the Bantam Boys race. His 2nd place performance in Myrtle Beach was a season and personal best of 11:17.72, which will definitely make him a contender for both AAU and USATF National Championships. Jevon finished 3rd two years ago at AAU Nationals and looks to get back in the Top Three again this year. Also a contender for a National Championship is Elijah Gray. He finished 6th overall in Myrtle Beach and is also a Top 5 favorite going into Orlando. Eli's performance of 11:45.58 is a season and personal best.
6th Place Region III Finisher Elijah Gray

Rounding out the team traveling to Myrtle Beach was Nasir Muhammad and Alexia Wilson. Both produced season and personal bests in their races. Nasir finished 35th (11:39.84) in the Midget Boys 3K race. His performance sets him up to meet the goal set for him of finishing in the Top 50 at AAU XC Nationals. "Though not qualifying for USATF XC Nationals, his season has been a steady progression of improvement. And we hope he can carry that into AAU XC Nationals this weekend", said Coach Charles.

Alexia had a gutsy race in the Youth Girls 4K. She finished 25th (16:49.17), just short of her goal of winning a medal and qualifying for USATF Nationals. But again, her finish was her best ever, and puts her in a great position to achieve a Top 40 finish this year at AAU XC Nationals. Last year, Alexia just missed a Top 50 finish, and looks to improve on that this year.

2011 XC Team
Also making the trip to Orlando is Samuel Wells. Sam sustained an injury in the GA USATF Championship and is trying to work his way back to compete in Orlando. Sam finished 69th last year and is also trying to crack the Top 50 mark. "Hopefully Sam is healthy enough to compete at a high level this coming weekend. He had some bad luck last year as well, getting sick down the stretch. So I'm hoping he'll be ready to go", comments Coach Charles. The anticipation is high for AAU XC Nationals. "I expect to see four of our athletes finish in the Top 5, and any of those athletes are capable of winning the National Championship. Jevon, Elijah, Faith and Rayevan are very capable of winning it all. Anything can happen in a National Championship. And Mya is very capable of a Top Ten finish. So, the expectations are high, but I wouldn't be surprised if either of them pulls it off", says Coach Muhammad.
