Gabriel Ceballos, who is a member of the Saints Track team, stated “The event is only for qualifying competitors” meaning all competitors had to meet the qualifications in their respective events. The event will showcase the best individuals from schools around the country. Hopefully our Saints will be in good health and do their best. We look forward to hearing the results of the races and events next week.
