If you were at the AAU VA Regional Qualifier this past weekend, this is probably a phrase that sounds familiar. It is part of the Mustangs team motto. "Work Hard! Run Fast! We are Mustangs!"
The Mustangs Track Club recently had 41 athletes qualify for the 2015 AAU Nationals (Junior Olympics) being held in Norfolk, Virginia.
The Mustangs not only dominated in their individual performances, the athletes dominated in the relay events where they won several gold medals in record time.
In 2012, the Mustangs Track Club was founded by Head Coach Raymond Gee and consisted of 16 kids in Manassas VA. Since then, the Mustangs have grown to over 100 athletes in three locations.
Head Coach Damian King has also been instrumental in helping to grow and advance the Mustangs Track Club over the years at the Culpeper, VA location.
The Mustangs are a premiere youth track program with locations in Manassas, VA, Culpeper, VA, and Fairfax, VA. Their program goal is centered on citizenship, sportsmanship and giving back to our community. The coaches train participants to become respectful, competitive hard working student athletes.
If you are headed to the AAU Junior Olympics this year, watch out for the Mustangs Track Club. They are ready and more motivated as ever.
Congratulations to all 41 athletes for their amazing accomplishments!
