Track & Field season starts strong

Winning doesn’t always matter. Who you are defines your success!

Coach Head would like to recognize the hard work and commitment of his entire team. They are all hardworking athletes in and out of the classroom. However, a few members have excelled in a few events:
*Addison Laisey is ranked 2nd in the state in the Women’s 2 mile - only 2.5 seconds behind 1st place.
*Rylan Russ ranked 5th and 6th in the state in Boys' Discus and Shotput with only a few feet to spare to 1st place
*Nate Thompson is 3rd in the state in Boys' 100m hurdles - only 2 seconds away from 1st.
*Emmy Dennehy is 3rd in the state in Women’s 300 meter hurdles with 2 seconds separating her and first.

Piedmont Middle is only in its second full year of having a Track and Field team and we have 13 plus athletes who are in the top 25 rank within NC Middle School Track and Field. I am extremely proud of all my athletes and their commitment and efforts as a team - not just in competing but in sportsmanship and building each other up! Way to go, Panthers.
