Next Level Track Club a.k.a Purple Smoke, is a local track club that has served Forsyth County kids for the past 15 years.  They recently sent several athletes to the Junior Olympics track meet at North Carolina A&T State University, with promising results.

Terrell Robinson Jr. continued to lead the charge as the athletes from Next Level competed in their final competition of the season.  Robinson won medals in both the 100 and 200 meter dash races.  Robinson, the 2018 AAU indoor national champion in the 60 meter dash, had his hands full in both races.

Eight-year-old Silas Ross Jr. just missed out on winning a medal in the 200 meter dash for age 8 and under boys.  Ross finished 10th overall.  He then teamed with Tryson Melton, Mike Carter Jr. and Tashaun Timmons to finish nineth in the 4×100 meter relay.

Nine-year old Victor Davidson Jr. was out of practice all wee with a stomach virus, but still ran an impressive 1500 meter run.

Many other fine performances were delivered by the remaining members of the team.  Over 10,000 athletes from all across the United States were on hand for some of the best performances in years.  Many records were broken and several were equaled.  Next Level will take a few months off and then begin their indoor running program in November.
