Cuero Track Club Sending Athletes to TAAF Summer Games

The Cuero Select Track Club is sending seven athletes to the Texas Amateur Athletic Federation Summer Games this year. Among the qualifiers are Elena Gomez in 8-and-under long jump, 400 meter, and 200 meter dash, Alexander Gomez in 6-and-under 50 and 100 meter dashes, Jessiah Rodriguez in 10-and-under long jump and 400 meter, and Miracle Glover, 18-and-under competitor in shot put and discus.

“I’d say I’ve gotten better,” Glover told our Don Brubaker. “I started going to a personal trainer in Yoakum, he helps me with shot put and discus.”

Added Dawn Green, the track club’s President: “It’s an excitement to me because I know how hard these kids work and perform Monday through Wednesdays to prepare for our weekly Friday track meets, as well as getting prepared for the regional meets.

The Cuero Select Track Club will begin their events at the TAAF Summer Games next Thursday, with competition taking place at College Station High School.
