The St. Croix Track Club (STXTC) Mustangs took five golds and one silver with four athletes at the Imperial event of the Association of Youth/Junior Athletics (AAJI) in Gurabo, Puerto Rico. The competition hosted over 694 athletes from age 14 and up.
Malique Smith won golds in the 300m in 34.31 seconds and the 600m in 1 minunte 19.09 seconds. Michelle Smith also won golds in the 400m hurdles in 66.04 seconds and the 1200m in 3 minutes 52 seconds. Ariana Edgar won gold in the discus with 30.72 meters and silver in the shot put with 11.95 meters. Jah Whyte was 9th of 24 athletes in the 2000m and 15th of 31 athletes in the 1200m.
All of the V.I. athletes achieved personal records in almost all of their events, which was remarkable due to the many rain delays and soaked bodies.
