President Burns Joins Margaret Dixon and Kids at PAL Track Meet; See Video and Others of Merritt Team

27 April 2018

Coach Brock Drazen reports that on March 23, Merritt hosted a youth community track meet sponsored by Oakland PAL (Police Athletic League).  Margaret Dixon has worked tirelessly as director of the program for decades and our partnership dates back to 2006-2007 when PAL returned its program to Merritt.  It was a great day and the video below highlights a typical weekend day on Merritt’s athletic facilities including youth basketball and soccer.  Shout out to President Burns for spending time at the track with the kids!

For our team, we have been out and about, competing hard and successfully.  I’ll just leave it at that for now.  Our conference championship is today at Fresno.  Have a great weekend!
