alexis jumping

A total of 10 Jets went to the Junior Olympics to wrap up the year. Each gave his of her all on the biggest stage of the season and everyone had something to be proud of.

Kylee completed her wildly successful year by earning medals in three events in Norfolk, VA at the AAU JO’s. She ran a great race to finish second in the 10 year old 400 in a new Jets record 1:01.78. That came about three hours after she lowered her team record in the preliminary round of the 200 to 27.94. Four days later she ran a 28.25 for fourth place overall. Kylee also grabbed a fourth place medal in the 100, 13.85 being her best time of the three rounds.

Alexis was the other Jet to place in the top eight, bounding 36-02 in her specialty, the triple jump, for a bronze medal on the first day of competition. Two days later she missed the finals of the long jump by ¾ of an inch, soaring 16-08.5 for ninth place. Alexis also ran the 100.

kyle_peytonAnother team record in the (11-12 year old) 400 went to Peyton who ran a blistering 1:02.52, good enough for 11th place amongst 11 year olds. Peyton had earlier run a 27.61 to qualify for the semi finals of the 200 where she finished 19th. She also competed in the 100.

Also competing for the Jets in Norfolk were Lucas in the 14 year old 1500 (13th) and 800 (17th), Kaori, in 13 year old triple jump (14th) and 100, Davonte in the 15-16 year old 100 (20th) and 200, Jacob in the 9 year old 1500 and long jump, Sergei in the 14 year old 3000 and Jahphiah in the 15-16 year old 400.

Cambridge Jets Win Youth Relay in
New Balance Grand Prix Meet
Feb 2013
gran prix relay

Cambridge Jets continue to dominate the Youth Relay race at the New Balance Grand Prix meet winning the last 6 of 7 years. Every February, the New Balance meet is held at the Reggie Lewis track, where world class and Olympic runners come to compete. The meet holds a youth relay where local track teams send their best young sprinters (must be younger than High School age). The race has 2 boys and 2 girls running in a 4x200m. This year Olivia, Sam, Mianci and Davonte ran for the Jets, beating 5 other local teams.

The race was especially exciting because Mianci (10 years old) was asked to participate in the race only an hour before race time. Even though Mianci is fast for her age, all the other participants were 3-4 years older, quite a disadvantage, but she held her own. The Jets ran hard, had good hand offs and persevered. Watch the exciting race here:
