Meet The Junior Mavericks Running Club

Nearly 150 athletes were able to get some fresh air and try to beat their fastest mile, hurdle time or distance medley time at the Junior Mavericks Running Club’s recent inaugural invitation track meet at La Costa Canyon High School (LCC). The title of the meet, Inaugural Cinco De Mayo Invitational Middle School Meet, hosted eight schools from various areas of North County, including Valley Middle school in Carlsbad, as well as forty community volunteers. The LCC track team, as well as LCC track team parents, and the school’s head track coach volunteered to lend a helping hand. “They helped tremendously with their community service,” stated Robin Missailidis, Junior Mavericks Running Club Founder.

Medals were presented to the top three athletes in each event, and ribbons were presented to those who placed in fourth or fifth place. In the spirit of Cinco de Mayo, overall team winners received golden, silver, or bronze sombreros. Additionally, piñatas, maracas, and salsa bowls were auctioned off as well. Congratulations to all who placed at the meet and everyone who came together for a fun community event!
