Jon Lee-“DJ has been a big part of our sprints program over the past 4 years and had big hopes to cap off his Braves career with some titles and a state finals birth. A supporting staff as far as sprints goes is huge in the success of sprinters, it’s very hard to do it as one person. We had built a solid squad to work with and push each day; DJ was a big part of that. He pushes his teammates and lifts them up any chance he gets. He has been working hard in the weight room and growing mentally as far as his training goes. Luckily he will get a chance to get back on the track at SMWC and should continue to be a workhorse there just as he was here.”

Good luck DJ, we’ll be excited to see you run still in college.
