Tsunami Athletes Make Waves at New Balance Nationals

by admin on June 25, 2017


Each year at the end of the high school season, the nation’s best athletes convene at New Balance Nationals (NBN) in Greensboro North Carolina.

Several Tsunami athletes made the trek this year with their High School teams and some impressive performances were recorded:



Ashliegh Patterson in her first National outdoor competition as a freshman at Union Catholic, while her 4×800, and emerging elite distance medley teams did not medal, ran well.



Her older brother Brandon, a rising senior at Union Catholic, won the emerging elite division shot put with an impressive throw of 57’-6 ¼”, Way to go Big B!



Victoria Vanriele, fresh off of her 800 meters Meet of Champions win for Governor Livingston High School, was entered in the freshman mile, where she took 3rd place. She then was in the championship 800 meter run against the best in the country, where she placed 4th with a time of 2:08.23.



Rising Junior, Khamil Evans, while she spent only a season with us, once Tsunami, always tsunami because it’s all in the family; ran the 300 leg of Union Catholic’s national record setting Swedish medley.


Amaya Chadwick, another rising senior from Union Catholic, fresh off of her 2nd place meet of champions 100 meter hurdles (watch out for next year), ran the 200 leg of the record setting Swedish relay. She then led off the 2nd place Shuttle Hurdle relay and ran the open 100 meter hurdles. Busy weekend Amaya?



My wife tells me that I would be remiss if I didn’t mention our honorary member, One Sydney McLaughlin, (but wouldn’t everyone love to have her as part of the family). Is there anything that this girl can’t do? I’m just saying..

Congratulations to all, we are proud of your accomplishments and look forward to watching bigger and better things to come.


Love Ya,

Your coaches and teammates
