Indoor Nationals Recap
We are extremely proud of ALL of our athletes. PPYRC is one of the only teams who enjoyed MEDAL WINNERS in the majority of events contested at the 2016 National Championships at Ocean Breeze Indoor Track in Staten Island, New York. We placed athletes on the medal podium for the 200m, 400m, 800m, 1500m, 3000m, Long Jump, Shotput, 4×200, and 4×400.
In all, PPYRC grabbed an outstanding 61 medals, including 4 individual gold and sets of relay gold medals. One of the many highlights was Tahje Flemming winning both the 200m and 400m finals, both setting NEW NATIONAL MEETS RECORDS. Congratulations to all who competed!
As a youth program, our goal of universal improvement, team unity, and increased self confidence was achieved throughout the season. Our athletes did an amazing job of setting personal goals while working toward a team vision. GREAT JOB!
ALSO, a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Tahje Flemming and Tam Gavenas for winning the USATF New York Athletes of the Year in their respective age divisions.
