We would like to congratulate Saxon Brown for qualifying to compete at the Jr. Olympics that will be held on August 4 and 5 in Norfolk, Virginia. Saxon competed at the state level last month and qualified for the 11 year old boys 400 M and 800 M races.
Saxon is a part of a local track club, the Greenville Jets. Although this is his first year on the track team, Saxon has already won 3 Bronze, 2 Silver and 3 Gold medals. His hard work and dedication as he continues to set goals and meet them has allowed him to rank 20th in the nation in the 800 M and 15th in the nation in the 400 M. The Jets participate in both the USA Track and Field (USATF) and the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) Track and Field competitions.
Way to go Saxon! You can watch the races live at www.aautv.org on Monday, August 4 and Tuesday, August 5. The Five Oaks community is behind you all of the way!
