The track team started with a bang this season as up and coming runners are making great strides, reports Coach Brock Drazen about a recent meet and includes videos (with music!) below. “We had a nice weather weekend for track and a few of our Merritt students shined at UC Davis. Adeeb Nasir set an early season personal best sprinting the 100m in 10.73 posting the fastest time of the day in that event. This puts Adeeb 6th in Northern California and in the hunt for a spot at the state championship (see a profile of Adeeb in the next Merritt Connection newsletter). Tyler Dougherty posted a 4:09 in the 1500m to take the win in an exciting finish–if you don’t like long races advance the race to the last lap.
The week before, Kaori Nguyen won the 100m at American River College
