10 26 21 Juan

October 26--Seventh grade Toombs County Middle School runner Juan Luna ran in 5 races this season. Not one time did a runner finish in front of him. Juan was 5-for-5 in his races. He won every single one of them. Undefeated. Juan's 1st race was on August 28th at the Bleckley County Clash of Classes. This race was just against other 7th graders and Juan finished with a time of 13:11, in 1st place out of 35 runners. At his home meet, the Bulldog Invitational on September 16th, Juan ran an 11:49.01, finishing 1st out of 130 male runners. 

 A week later at the Southern Championships hosted by Jeff Davis, Juan ran a 12:00 flat, finishing 1st out of 167 runners. On September 28th, at a smaller Dodge County meet, Juan ran a 12:31 and finished 1st out of 65 runners. Finally, at the Georgia Middle School State Championships, hosted by Bleckley County on October 16th, Juan ran an impressive 11:49.97 on a difficult course, finishing 1st out of 215 runners, claiming the individual state championship. 

 Coach Katie Goodwin had this to say about Juan, "Juan Luna had an unforgettable season. I could tell he was talented from the beginning, coming out and winning his 1st race. Each day he showed up to practice with a great attitude and strong work ethic. He pushed himself in workouts and in every race.  Going into the state meet, I thought he had the potential to win, but I knew he would have lots of competition. It was such a thrilling moment when he crossed that state finish line in 1st, just 3 seconds ahead of 2nd place. It was the perfect ending to his undefeated season, and he is so deserving I'm very happy for Juan, and so proud of him I'm looking forward to seeing what he can accomplish next season and throughout his high school career as well."
