Salisbury Speedsters competing in New Orleans this week

When you are reading this, seven Salisbury Speedsters are ready to compete in New Orleans at the 2011 AAU Junior Olympics.
Andrew Burgess and Alex Crook running the 3,000 meter, 1,500 meter and 800 meter.
Jabari Dalton, Payton Russell, and Jaleesa Smoot running the 100 meter, 200 meter and 400 meter.
And Cameron Isenhour throwing the javelin and Talvanisha Lawing 100 meter hurdles.
What a road this has been. It takes hard work and dedication, as I mentioned before, and a lot of support of the parents, coaches and community. And even with hard work, it does not guarantee you a spot to the Nationals. If your child likes to run and wants to be part of Salisbury Speedsters, our 2012 season will start mid-March.
New for Salisbury Speedsters and the JF Hurley family YMCA is AAU/USATF Cross Country. It is a competitive AAU and USATF Cross Country traveling team.
The Salisbury Speedsters YMCA Cross Country team; if your child likes to run and is, or will turn 8 this year up to 14 years of age, and you as a parent are willing to be on a traveling cross country team, there is an interest meeting scheduled Tuesday, Aug. 9 at 6 p.m. in the board room at the JF Hurley Family YMCA.
Practices will start Aug. 15 at 6 p.m. at the Hurley Soccer Complex on Majolica Road. We will practice Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6 p.m.
The first Cross Country meet will be in Gastonia on Oct. 1.
If you are interested, please join head coach Kevin Marsh and me on Tuesday, Aug. 9 at 6 p.m.
Limited spots are available. This is a first for this community and a very exciting new way to get children active and competitive.
And this week, please support our seven local athletes competing on a national level in hot and humid New Orleans.
Ester H Marsh ACSM Cpt, AAU track coach and assistant Cross Country coach
