2014 Season Recap

4 x 800m Relay Regional Champs (AAU & USATF)

The 2014 track and field season for Premier Athletics brought about new challenges for the team and staff, but even with those challenges, a string of success still followed. At nearly half the size of the 2013 season, the level of success against its mission and team goals still materialized for Coach Muhammad and Coach Freeman in the 2014 season.


“We faced a lot of challenges in the beginning of our season with facilities and some long range plans falling through. But in the end, we reclaimed our facility home at M.L. King High School (Lithonia, GA), and continued to build a solid program. We decided to get smaller in order to give our athletes more of the attention they needed, which also allowed us to be better managed. However, there are a few things we still need to improve upon to continue making ourselves one of the great programs in the Southeast”, said Coach Charles Muhammad.


Premier Athletics All-Academic Team


Of a roster of nearly 30 athletes, 68% of those student athletes achieved the designation of “Premier Athletics All-Academic Team”. This designation means that these athletes achieved Honor Role status throughout the academic school year at their designated institution. “Premier Athletics requires submittal of report cards after every semester, and this year we had a 73% participation rate. Of those submitted, we actually had 79% of those athletes achieving All-Academic status. This number is what I am most proud of as a Coach. Our organization works very hard on the concept of the scholar/athlete, and this number shows our commitment to that mission”, said Coach Charles.

“We didn’t make the trip to Junior Olympics this season for various reasons, and I believe that is our only low point this season. But we are very proud of our accomplishments in 2014. We really hope to focus in on developing some new athletes in 2015 and continue our trend as an organization that builds great scholar/athletes. Our goal is to make a big splash at the Association and District Championships in 2015”, said Coach Charles.
