Now that spring 2011 is in the books, it’s time to reflect on what had transpired in the final days of the following teams’ 2011 seasons:
Three Metro track and field athletes broke school records and two of the athletes reached provisional qualifying times for nationals this past weekend at the Mt. San Antonio College relays in Walnut, Calif.
Senior Brandon Johnson broke the school record in the five-kilometer race with a time of 14 minutes and eight seconds, which was also good enough for a provisional qualifying time in that event.
The Metro track and field teams went out to Boulder for the CU Invitational April 9, turning in solid performances with a little extra help from the Metro basketball teams .
Second-year Head Coach John Supsic was very happy to see other athletes giving his squad a hand.
“One thing that I really love about Metro athletics is all the teams support each other,” Supsic said. “Athletes are coming in saying, ‘we’re willing to help. What can we do?’ It says a lot about this athletic program.”
