Cambridge Jets Win Youth Relay in
New Balance Grand Prix Meet
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:
