Both men’s track and field, most valuable athletes qualified to represent LBCC at the Southern Regional meet. Freshman Jarrod Amyx as a shot put and sophomore Phillip Powell as an 800 meter runner.

Powell said, “It was a great experience for me this season. I had a few injuries, but I still ran a personal best in the 800 meters. I wasn’t really happy with the season because I wanted to reach my goal, but my injuries wouldn’t let me push my body to my full potential.”

“I am ready to move on and chase after my goals on the next level of track and field.

I am still grateful that I am the MVP for LBCC track and field team. Thanks to my coaches who look out for me and help me to be the best that I can be.”

Amyx said, “This season of track and field was very different, being my first year in any college and a change from high school track and field, but I quickly began to enjoy myself. The coaches were very friendly and helpful to me the entire season.”

“The same could be said about my teammates, every single one of them helped me was very welcoming to me even though I’m not the most outgoing person ever.”

“All I have to say about being a MVP is that I’m glad that I did this well this year, but I hope I can do better next year.”
