The 1600m Sprint Medley Relays also both ran well. They ran the school's 3rd fastest time for the boys (Ayo Tunde-Ojo, Kelvyn Sosoo, Deshon Anderson and William Christian) and the 4th fastest time for the girls (Kayla Pindell, Toni Jennings, Bethany Golatt, & Julianne Knoblett) in school history!
Khalid Dunton ran a personal best time in the hurdles of 8.45 seconds. In the mile William Christian ran 4:39 (personal record) and Kate Hyde, a first year runner, ran 5:48.67, putting her Top 15 in the county.
The girls 4 x 200m relay team ran 1:47.64 which is the 2nd fastest time in school history and only missed the school record by .35 seconds! Toni Jennings led off with a great leg of 26.96. Bethany Golatt followed with 27.32, Kayla Pindell ran 26.80, and Julianne Knoblett ran 26.57. Great Job!
In the 400 Meter Run, Joel Annan and Khalid Dunton ran personal best times!

The team defeated Centennial 6-3 on Tuesday, January 12, pushing their unbeaten streak to 4 games, the longest in the club's history. This was a gutsy, team-based win featuring six different goal-scorers! Chris Moon, Willy Watts, Alex Barila, Naveed Nekoo, Alex Shope, and Cameron Hyder each tallied a goal for the Gators. Jonathan Howe, our goalie, frustrated the opposition with multiple tough saves!
Congrats again to the players and our coaches, Mr. Matty Valvano and Mr. John Perfetto!

Next, Gillie Eisenberg was the first girl to bowl over 200, bowling an amazing 207. Finally, the team ended the day with a team average of 91.6! This is the first time in school history that the team achieved an average of 90%. Great going, GATORS!
