Kevin Snyder' 19 made an impact for Christ School Track and Field immediately as a freshman, but with help from Head Coach Randy Ashley and Demeseh Cobb, he transformed himself into an All-American jumper and one of the most decorated athletes in North Carolina. He will take that experience and compete at the Division I level next year. Snyder committed to the University of Miami on Monday, accepting a full athletic scholarship that will allow him to compete in the ACC for the next four years.
Congratulations are in order for Christ School head coach Randy Ashley and Kevin Snyder '19 who were named 3-A Coach of the Year and Athlete of the Year, respectively, by the NCISAA's Track & Field Coaches Association for their work throughout the 2018 season.
On May 18th and 19th, the NCISAA 3A State Track Championship was held at Ravenscroft School in Raleigh, NC. Christ School had 16 boys on the State track roster and all came ready to compete. The 2018 spring season was loaded with strong individual results and the boys were finally prepped and charged to go after the best teams in the NCISAA 3A class.
All year long, the Greenies have pushed themselves for this weekend. After narrowly missing out on a state championship last season, the Track & Field team set their sights high in 2018, and the weekend has finally arrived.
The Greenies Track and Field team had the opportunity to host the CAA Conference Meet and didn't disappoint as they dominated the competition.
This weekend, four members of the Track and Field team traveled with Coach Cobb to the Penn Relays, the oldest and most prestigious track meet in the country, to compete in the 4x400m and the long jump.
