Coach Mandy Godbee said, “It has been a long time since J.R. Trippe has won this championship. These young men performed exceptionally well in each event. This group of athletes are very special and talented, being lead by Bryce Davis who brought home 5 first place finishes. He is a true leader and rallied the team before the final event, the 4x400. They had to win this race to win the title and they fought through to the very end to pull off the win. It was by far the most exciting
middle school track meets I have ever attended. These fellows were on a mission, they
executed and accomplished their goal. It was a joy and honor to watch and be a part of it!"
