Great Southwest Track & Field Classic

EMHS Summary

On 6/5 and 6/6, two East Mountain High School Athletes competed at the Great Southwest Classic Track and Field Invite. Amira Cunningham, a recently graduated senior, competed in the 2k Steeplechase and Alex Heffelfinger, a rising EMHS senior, competed in the 2k steeple and 3200m. At this year's GSW over 30 states were represented as well as some sprinters from Jamaica.

In the five races Amira and Alex competed in, they made the podium (top 6 overall) in all five! On Friday, 6/5, both Alex and Amira took 3rd in the steeplechase. Amira with a time of 7:43.07 and Alex in 6:28.55. Both ran strong races, Amira from the front of the pack before settling in a maintaining 3rd place and Alex from the middle of the pack, moving up eventually to 3rd.

Then on Saturday, Amira placed 6th in the mile race with a time of 5:26.47 and 2nd in the 3200m in 11:41.27. In the 3200m, Amira ran with 2 girls from Colorado, fighting for 2nd place the entire race and finally out-sprinting one of them by less than 1/2 of a second.

Alex, in the 3200m battled in the 2nd pack as the first 5 runners took off. He battled hard for the race before finally unleashing his finish kick in the last 200m, passing 3 runners for 6th place overall in a time of 10:08.27. (side note - Alex was diagnosed with bronchitis the day after state track meet, about 3 weeks ago and missed a week of good training, so his competitiveness and placing were gutsy considering the circumstances).

I am very proud of both of these athletes for continuing to train past the regular high school season and represent EMHS and New Mexico with pride. I will miss Amira greatly as she is a tough competitor and has been a leader for our teams. She will do well at her next stop at Lubbock Christian University. I look forward to seeing what Alex can do over his senior year, as he has the talent, the drive to train, and the competitiveness to be one of the best, if not the best distance runner in New Mexico.
