Brooks PR Invitational 2016

Brandon Cachon Can't Wait For Brooks PR Experience, Race Nation's Best Todd Grasley Jun 12, 2016

Before Brandon Cachon heads off to UNC he will compete in one last meet, the Brooks PR Invitational in Seattle, Washington. The Barron Collier senior won the 3A state championship in the 400, anchored the 4x800m relay team, and was the 200m runner-up, helping his team to a runner-up trophy. Cachon wanted nothing more than to earn his ticket to Brooks PR by winning the 400m dash at Flo Golden South, but friend and competitor Tyrese Cooper stood in his way. However, he helped him to a SB 46.99 and the folks at Brooks took notice. We talked to Cachon about getting invited to this prestigious meet, his plans, and much more!

Auburndale's Chauncy Smart At His Best As Brooks PR Beckons Todd Grasley Jun 10, 2016

Auburndale junior Chauncy Smart is hungry. Hungry to prove he is one of the fastest sprinters not just in Florida, but in the rest of the country. Smart a two-sport standout in both football and track, clocked a then US#1 time of 10.30w to win the Pepsi Florida Relays. In fourteen races, he tallied two losses, with the last coming at the 3A state championship meet, a heartbreaking photo finish that saw him come up one one-hundredth of a second from the win. Following the meet, Smart thought his year was done, no postseason plans on the horizon, and spring football practice looming. He says he switched from his track spikes and laced up his cleats gearing up for the gridiron.
