2015 USATF Region 10
Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships

UTEP: July 10-13

Southern Arizona athletes brought home 15 gold medals at the USATF Region 10 Champions this past weekend in El Paso. In addition, eight silver standard times and marks were set. Tavian Ross actually set two standards in the 400 if his prelim time is included.

Flowing Wells/Tucson Elite standout Morgan Risch won two gold medals as did Walden Grove/AZ Titans sprinter Jordan Albertie. Also collecting two gold medals were Paelata Helu and Flowing Wells standout Sierra Rodriguez.

Vail Adrenaline Track Club thrower Alyssa Perrini qualified for nationals in three events. Perrini won the javelin throw, took second in the discuss and third in the shot put.

“I felt good going into Regionals because Arizona competition is so strong,” Perrini said.

“I’m at the bottom of my age group and I just wanted to compete well and qualify for nationals in all three events just like in 2014. I exceeded my expectations in the discus and think that I can do even better in shot and javelin in Jacksonville.”

The National Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships will be held in Jacksonville, Florida from July 27-August 2.
