Rock Hill, SC


The Cross Country season ended on a great note In South Carolina as the team competed in the AAU XC National Championship. Premier Athletics took 5 individuals to the meet with expectations on finishing the year strong. Faith Hill led all finishers with a Top 25 finish for the second year in a row. Her time of 12:10.40 over the 3K course for the Bantam Girls (10 yrs. old)  was her career personal best. Not far behind was Mya Solomon, who finished 31st in a time of 12:33.84. It was her second best performance of her career. In what was probably the most impressive race of the day, 26 girls finished under 12 minutes for the race. "Faith and Mya had strong performances this year in this meet, as expected. With the field that was tallied for this championship, they held their own", said Coach Muhammad.

Gia makes first appearance in XC Nationals

Gia Wright continued to impress with a season of constant improvement. Completing her first season ever running cross country, Gia finished in the Top 50, with a 46th place finish and a new personal best time of 12:35.03. "In many ways, Gia has been the story of the season. We felt Gia could use the Cross Country season as a way to mature as a middle distance athlete, and gain some experience and additional training to catapult her into next track season. She has exceeded expectations and we look for her to really excel in the coming 2013 track season", said Coach Muhammad. Rounding out the Girls team was Matoaka Wilson. In the 4K Youth Girls race, Matoaka finished 52nd in 17:14.09. Not her best performance, but respectable considering the long year she has had. "Toaka has juggled a long track season, plus high school cross country in addition to youth XC. We look for her to get some well deserved rest and come back strong to measure up to her standards", said Coach Charles. 

Sam competes in the high school boys race

Sam Wells led the day off in the high school boys race. Sam finished 72nd in 20:47.79. "Sam had been coming off being sick recently, so we weren't expecting his best performance. However, we feel Sam needs to begin to show up in the big meets like these to solidify himself as a regional class athlete. We believe that's really all he is missing as a serious athlete", said Coach Muhammad.

Alexia Wilson and Lauryn Griggs did not make the trip to AAU Nationals, although they qualified. But they both had strong seasons. "I'm very happy with the results from this season. Although we didn't accomplish all our goals, some we exceeded....so we'll take the successes and build upon them in the coming track season", said Coach Charles.
