The 2018 season was all plus a little more than anticipated at its inception. Though stuffed with trials, adversities and various set backs, triumph was the ultimate rendering. Our steadfast philosophy and belief that, “the process is the ultimate determinant of success”, was a beacon that guided us from general preparation to the championships, where the title on National Champion was cemented in AAU history. What a journey!
We rode the train bounded for excellence, slowing only at hurdles, detouring at the injuries, speeding past the PRs and refueling at rest intervals. Keeping our eyes on the prize and never stopping, because victory is for those who persevere to the end.
Six athletes tallying 8 medals: 3 gold, 2 silver, 3 top eight finishes. A truly accomplished season personified by personal growth and academic development.
We are forever grateful for the privilege and opportunity of impacting these youngsters.
Well done Alphites!!!!
