Wow! Wow! Wow! ... and Wow!
What a weekend our Boca Warriors had 3/27 - 3/28 !
We had so many of our Athletes run great, many running strong and getting new personal bests and some medaling.
4 special shout-outs though, and in no particular order, since all 4 of these athletes performed incredible.
Be prepared to get some goosebumps !

McKenzie Ferdine showed the heart of a champion and showed what consistent and diligent practices results in ... passing the leader on the final turn and running a 1500 meter 5:17:81 (13-14 year old girls).
Watch with one lap to go, as McKenzie behind by about 60 meters, puts on the jets and takes it home:
Tristan Stephenson powered through the finish line, coming from far back on the final turn to cross the finish line first by a mere .09 seconds in the 800 meters finals (11-12 year old boys).
Watch Tristan give it his all !
