Metro Alumni come and give back

Metro Eagles have been having virtual workouts on zoom twice a week.  To help build strong bodies for our student-athletes and not to lose anything .

Last week we had some Metro Eagle Alumni come on and speak to the 13 & up team.  To share some of their experiences with transitioning from HS to college.  How it will be handling schoolwork, test, labs and still do well on the team with weight room, two a days, nutrition, communication, study halls, tutors, etc.

It was an extremely moving and interesting conversation, where the student-athletes got to see their future.  Our Alumni said they were gracious of how Metro prepared them and they would love to comeback to help out again.

Thank you for giving back, and make the world notice your potential!

Alaine Tate– Ran with Metro since the age of 11 and graduated from Bayside HS in 2010.  She went on scholarship to the University of Miami, she ran all over the nation.  I remember Alaine practicing against the boys.  She refused to let them beat her. In HS she ran against the Frances sisters, Phyllis and Claudia. And they all hated to lose.  Phyllis now is on the USA team, and also a former Eagle. Alaine now lives in California and is coaching College Track & Field while working on her masters. She ran 400/800/1500m.

D’Andre Barriffe– Dre also ran with Metro from the age of 11, and he graduated from Bishop Lauglin HS in 2018. He now attends Georgetown University and is a Business major. He was a true leader on every team that he was on.  His grades were great and this opened the doors to many schools.  Georgetown won the SMR at Penn Relays in 2019 his freshman year.  One gold watch down, many to go.  And yes it’s a little tougher than HS, but you have so many good resources that you could use. He runs 200m and 400m.

Anu Akil– Anu was with us since age of 5.  Anu was a beast from 5. She knew what she wanted and went after it. She graduated from Brooklyn Technical HS in 2018. Grades were everything to Anu, but she also hated to lose. She’s a multi-event student athlete Business major at “Maryland Eastern Shore.”  Her age group of girls were together a long time and hated to lose. 

Kayla Guerre– 2018 graduate from Elmont Memorial HS and is now at  SUNY @Oswego as a Psychology major.  Kayla is a jumper and reaching great new heights.   She was 14 when she started with Metro

Jordan Kelly- 2019 graduate from Flushing HS. He is now a Nursing major at St. Francis College. Jordan started with Metro at age of 16. He is a short sprinter/jumper. He also was a great leader while at Metro.

Thank you Alumni you represent yourself, families and Metro Eagles well.  These student-athletes all had 90+ GPA and did well on the track at National and local meets. And they led by example.  Please keep reaching for the stars.
