A Premier Dozen

Team takes home 12 medals from 2012 AAU Junior Olympics

Jevon Leonard captures 3 Medals at JO's

Aug. 4th, 2012

Humble, TX


The 2012 season culminated outside of Houston, TX with the AAU Junior Olympics, being held in Turner Stadium at Humble High School. At this first rate facility, Premier Athletics looked to perform well and come away with some personal bests, and possibly a lot of hardware. When the events were over, the team came away with one National Champion, along with eleven other medals to complete the trip with twelve overall medals. "So many things can happen in a National Championship. We always have expectations going in. But with the exception of just two of our events, we achieved almost everything we set out to do. We had a little bad luck in the Bantam Girls 1500m, and a little heartbreak in the 4 x 400m relay, as well as a mishap in the Midget Boys 4 x 100m relay, but overall, we had a great Junior Olympics. I thank all my Coaches, support staff and Parents for an outstanding year!", said Coach Charles Muhammad.


Jevon Leonard had his best Junior Olympics performance of his career in Houston. He captured a bronze medal in the 800m, with a personal best of 2:20.04. And he also took two 4th place medals in the 1500m and the 4 x 400m relay. "We've always had these type of expectations from Jevon. To see him come through the way he did in Houston is very fulfilling. He's more than capable of repeating this each year, and we hope he continues to move up the podium", said Coach Muhammad.

Matthew Harris captured a National Championship

Leading the team in accolades was Matthew Harris. Matt started the Junior Olympics on opening weekend by winning the Pentathlon, capturing the teams first Individual National Championship. Then two days later, he came back and took silver (2nd) in the 400m....losing to the National Champion that was chasing the National Record in the Sub-Midget Boys 400m.


He went into Houston as the #1 seed in the 80m Hurdles, hopefully chasing four medals. After being clipped going over a hurdle, he couldn't recover, and lost his shot at another medal. But he would come back later that day and run a great 2nd leg of the 4 x 400m relay, and put them in the final, to capture his third medal. "I'm very proud of the way Matt performed and responded to his own adversity. He's a star for our team, and the expectations are very high for him. Sometimes we tend to overlook his accomplishments because of our expectations. But his work with Coach Q. and his performance at JO's is a testament to his hard work", said Coach Muhammad.

Faith Hill and Elijah Gray were also multiple medal winners. Faith captured her two medals in the 800m and 1500m runs. After capturing a 6th place medal in the 1500m, she came back the following day in the 800m to run a personal best of 2:34.34 to take 5th place. In her first trip ever to Nationals, she came home with two medals, and nearly a third in the Bantam Girls 4 x 400m relay. 

Elijah Gray made his first attempt to drop down in the sprints in the 400m run, and successfully made the medal stand with a 7th place finish. Then, he also came back the following day to once again make the medal stand in the 800m run, with a personal best of 2:24.69, taking 4th place.


I am very proud of Faith. She's been on the verge of making Nationals the last two years...just falling short. To see her break out this year was the culmination of her hard work. Elijah's performance was just gutsy! He was struggling with some nagging injuries, but toughed it out to do what he always does; Medals! I'm happy for both of them", said Coach Muhammad.


The final 4 medals came from the Midget Boys 4 x 400m relay. Greg Hill and Bruce Mattox brought up the tail end of the relay, along with Jevon and Matt, to capture four more medals for the team. "We were proud of this relay all year long. We knew we had something special. And they executed on the big stage to bring home the hardware", said Coach Muhammad.


Our Bantam Girls 4 x 400m relay team finished 9th overall, just missing the finals and the medal stand by one place, and just under 2 seconds. In addition, our Midget Boys 4 x 100m relay missed the finals by only one second. "Overall, we had a great JO's. I wished we could have gotten those few seconds we missed in these final two relays, and maybe a few more individual events. But as a team, and family, we should be pleased with our results in our first year!", said Coach Muhammad.
