Hey everyone Kendall Ellis here with my blog. It’s not often that I get an off week and when I do I usually don’t know what to do with myself. But this weekend was different since the STA seniors had prom. I have to say, I think I had one of the best track tans ever seen at a dance. Track problems. The seniors made the best of the night and had fun but now it’s back to the grind. This week really begins the road to state. Spring break starts Wednesday and districts are just the way to pop it off. Of course the Raiders are prepped and ready to perform.

Hey Flrunners! I cannot believe the bulk of season has already passed and it is down to the home stretch. This part of the season is personally my favorite because everyone is done experimenting with different events and we start to see main focuses. However, a lot has happened in the past few weeks, some big meets and very fast times!

This past Thursday the MSAA Championships were held at South Plantation. Going into this meet the apparent powerhouses were Lauderdale Lakes girls and boys, William Dandy girls and boys, and Pompano Beach girls. Pompano Beach girls have been fighting for that MSAA championship title, since I was there in the 7th grade. Every time we fell short to either William Dandy or Lauderdale Lakes, this year I know it’s the girl’s mission to win, not only for their coach, but their leaving 8th graders. In this MSAA Championships there were many upsets and people missing from their respective events. But, this MSAA Championships was definitely one for the books.

Patterson bested a very competitive field in the 800 meters, holding off the field, to finish first in a then US#2 and current US#5 time of 1:52.04.
While the small classifications are competing for district championships over two dozen 3A/4A teams will head to Winter Park High School for the Brian Jaeger Elite Classic.

One of the most incredible races I've ever witnessed. Who will be this year's standouts?
For the past two months my family had been praying for my uncle, Rudy Cambridge, Jr., to recover from a severe stroke. However, on March 28, my uncle passed away. His passing really affected me because we spent a lot of time together when he visited Miami. I chose to attend Columbus because he had always told me about the great times he and my uncle Alonzo Highsmith had while they were there.
