USATF Jr Olympic Assoc Track & Field State Championships 2022

The USATF Junior Olympic Association State Championship was last weekend and it was amazing to watch our athletes do their best and see their hard work and training pay off with multiple state champions, a few state records broken, and over 100 personal records. Nothing made us happier than hearing the words, “…and in first place, Wolfpack Running Club” at the podium.

You can view the final meet results here.

Best of all, we came away TEAM STATE CHAMPIONS! That’s right, we accumulated more points than any other team and we have the trophy to prove it!

Day 1, Thursday, June 16:

We had athletes competing in the pentathlon and the 3000m run. Hunter H took home a bronze medal in the 13/14 boys pentathlon. In the 3000m run, Kenny, Ryan, Adria, Brooklyn, and Teagan all placed 1st in their age divisions. As an added accomplishment, Adam, Hunter, Grant, Lily, Tyana, and Breelyssa finished in the top 5.

Day 2, Friday, June 17:

Day two continued with preliminary heats of the 100m dash and 200m dash, multi-events, 4x800m relays, and the 2000m Steeplechase. It was very hot that afternoon and exceptionally windy, but our athletes persevered.

Later in the afternoon our sprinters competed in their preliminary heats. So many athletes run the 100m and 200m dash that they were split into multiple heats and the fastest nine times moved on the to finals, which would be run on Saturday.

Our 4x800m relay teams took multiple State Championships. First was our 11/12 boys relay team who started out with a great showing. In the second race three of our girls teams ran together: 9/10, 13/14, and 15/16, and all three teams came back State Champions AND broken state records.

Teagan broke a state record in the 800m during her pentathlon.

It’s amazing to see these athletes do even better than they thought they could.

A huge THANK YOU our amazing coaches for their dedication and hard work. Three days of meets is exhausting and they never even seemed to break a sweat. Another huge THANK YOU to our awesome and supportive parents. They are the backbone that supports our organization by keeping our kids shaded and hydrated when it’s hot and motivated to keep going.

Overall, we had 20 athletes come away with individual state championship medals, 13 state champion relay teams, 4 broken state records, and more than 100 PRs. There was a lot of sweat, some tears, and a little blood, plus lots of tattoos and water fights… and ONE PACK that we’re all proud to be part of.
