The Blessed-to-Run track team of coach Tyree Shine will be competing this weekend in the AAU track regionals in Canton at Glen Oak High School.  Coach Shine a veteran track and field coach of over 30 years will have 40 athletes taking part ranging in age from elementary to high school. 

Two of his middle distance runners Danielle Musgrove 18, and Sarah Baker 16, both say the summer work they are putting in has started to pay off giving both better times in the 800 and 1,500 meters.  They also credit the sprint work they do as making them better in the races final lap. 

11-year-old Angelo Grose a veteran of the squad for the past several years competes as a sprinter and long jumper.  He states that he along with his sister and brothers know the practice routines and get right to work.  Grose was a national champion in the long jump a season ago in his age group. 

The team's 4x400 relay team of Armon Hugely, Alamar Grose, Devin Powell and Khirn Willis have put in the time and are ready to compete this weekend saying they've worked too hard to go and make mistakes that could cost them a spot on the podium.  The Blessed-to-Run track team competes on a state and national level from June through mid-August.
