On April 4th, the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Middle School Track & Field Championship Meet was held at First Baptist Academy in Naples.
The Marco Island Charter Middle School boys team came in first overall in a field of seven teams. Individually, the team had a first place finisher in nine of the 12 events. They were: Johnny Watt in the 1600 M (Meter), 100 M hurdles and 4X400 M relay; Kevin Barry in the 800 M and 4X400 M relay;
MICMS’s undefeated 4×100 relay team. From left: Johnny Watt, Kevin Barry, Coach Travis Barry, Kyler Howard, and Steven Snover. All four boys placed first in multiple events and will be freshman at MIA next fall.
Kyler Howard in the long jump & 4X400 M relay; Steven Snover in the 100 M, 200M and 4X400 M relay; Brian O’Brien in the high jump; and Ray Ramirez in the shot put. The 4X400 M boys’ team is undefeated so far this season. Good news for Marco Island Academy – they will all be going there next year.
