Well, after 4 hot days, with some intense competition, the 2016 AAU National Qualifier, held at Mike Long Track on FSU's campus, is finally in the books ! #ZoomNation was able to advance 38 athletes to the Junior Olympics! Even more impressive, of those athletes, all but two are competing in multiple events!
Please enjoy the photos from this weekend's meet (facebook and website of course) and congrats to all of those who have punched their tickets to this year's AAU Jr Olympic Games!
There will be no practice on Monday. We will resume on Tuesday, 6/28. We will be notifying everyone of a team photo shoot this week as well. Thank you everyone for the HARD WORK and FOCUS this week athletes!
