Las Vegas Elite Runners

Las Vegas Elite Runners Begin Season in Arizona!

The Las Vegas Elite Runners began their season with two out-of-town meets at Hamilton High School (3/27/2021) and the USATF 56th Phoenix Invitational at Chandler High School (4/24-25/2021) both in Chandler, AZ.  For athletes, parents, and coaches it was a welcome opportunity to travel and finally compete after weeks of practice.

 

This year the team has grown significantly to over 25 athletes.  From my observations, I find this group of kids to be talented, hardworking, and playful (sometimes too much but that is okay, they are kids).  Below is a brief overview of what is shaping up to be a wonderful team.

 

Several runners like Jasiah DavisRoland Johns-Clemmons, Kailere Joseph, Christoph Clemmons, Kaiyah Davis-Mitchell, Jordan Gowdy, Demetruis, Tate III, Lilianah Davis and Jeramiah Davis were hold overs from past track and cross country seasons. Each has shown good work ethics in early practices and we expect great seasons from each. 

 

Newcomers to the team are talented athletes in Maijestice Lopez, Naeveh Leffridge, Kaleah Springfield, Jada Washington, Elyjah Cobwell, Jacobi Williams, Tahj Martin, Lamont Harris, III, Trenton Harris, Billy Banks, Jr. and Danyah Moreland. Each brings a unique talent and personality that makes this group a joy to coach and be around.

 

Back to our opening meets.  Due to COVID and other restrictions, our first two meets in Arizona only included a third of our team. The athletes that did attend gave us a glimpse of what could be a very promising year.

 

Below is a snapshot of the performance at each meet!
