Trinity Track Club blazed a trail recent meet, that left spectators for rivaling countries cheering.
During the girls 4x100m relay race, Trinity’s team of Tori Ann Gonez, Ashantae Graham, Monique Gordon and Jaden Francis started off and finished strong. Running out of lane 4, Gonez’s start was smooth and swift, she was able to keep pace with the rest of the field, perhaps the only thing that was smoother than her start was the baton exchange between her and Graham. With baton in hand Graham turned it up a notch and sprinted pass the runners in lanes 5 and 6 who seemed to have had baton exchange issues. Another seamless baton transition between Graham and Gordon, helped to keep the ladies in second place coming out of the 300m bend, where Francis was waiting.
The third and final pass was again, perfectly timed and smooth, so much so that it helped to put the girls in the lead even if it was only for a few seconds. After edging out the runner in lane 7 for 75 meters Francis was caught and passed with only 25 meters to go. In the end she finished strong and the girls claimed 2 place over all for their race.
Other notable performances include the Aijah Lewis, who finished 5 out of 12 athletes in the High Jump and 5th out of 37 athletes in the Long Jump. Louis Gordon also placed 5th out of 24 athletes in the Long Jump, and 7th out of 12 athletes in the High Jump.
