2018 Track & Field City Champions

Last year fourteen 7th graders and three 8th graders made up the CMS Track and Field Team and did well considering many had never played this sport before. We were very excited to see what this group of guys could do in 8th grade. Almost every athlete returned this year, and what I difference a year makes. They were back bigger, stronger, faster, even more focused. They had a goal and worked hard to achieve it. Congratulations to all 22 guys on this year’s team. Well earned and well deserved, 2018 CITY CHAMPIONS!!!

“I won 1st place in the high jump, was part of the winning 4x4 team, and came in 2nd in the 400. We all knew our coach was retiring after this year, so we made it out goal to win city. We had a strong core of guys, every meet we scored points in almost every event. Looking further down the road when I am at Grissom I will continue to do indoor and outdoor track. I started track to do something new and to get faster for other sports. I will continue to do track for as long as I can,” said Jackson Bofenkamp 8th grader

“I came in 1st place in the long jump, and 2nd place in the high jump with one of the school’s best times with 5’4. Our 4x1 relay team had been coming in first place all season, and we should have got first during city. We messed up on one of the hand offs, and still got 4th place which still got our team points. This was the first time for Challenger to win city, and we did it for our coach, Coach Kelly” said Landon Currie 8th grader  

“I placed 3rd place in the triple jump last year as a 7th grader. This year as an 8th grader I came back stronger and ready to win. I came in 1st place in the triple jump in every track meet and won city with a jump of 39’1, with one of the longest jumps in middle school history in the triple jump. As I go into high school I will continue to work on getting better and I hope to further my track career” said Caleb Hunt 8th grade
