The TMA Track and Field team wasted no time making use of their spring break. After Friday's shortened class day, Coach Addison and Coach Scogin took the team to Episcopal High School in Alexandria to compete against several private league teams.
Captains Ke'Von Miles and Delonte Nash led the boys team to a 3rd place team finish while captains Nakiah Ferrell and Nadean Talley drove the Lady Warriors to 4th in the women's standings.
The day was filled with many highlights, but TMA's first ever individual wins were particularly noteworthy. In the first race of the afternoon, Nakiah Ferrell took the early lead in the 400 and never gave it up, running 65.64 and crushing the rest of the field by more than three seconds.
On the boys' side, Rashad Hartridge captured the 200 meter dash in a much tighter finish. He and Christopher Ridout duked it out in the home stretch, coming across the line in 24.24 and 24.84, respectively.
To cap the day off, Coach Scogin awarded the Meet MVP Warrior Pride T-shirts to Courtney Jones and Christopher Ridout.
