The ROAD to GREENSBORO Continues…

          The setting was New Haven, CT, home to Yale University, with more than 1,500 Athletes from CT to ME to NY to PA, and every state under that umbrella.  It was three (3) LOOOOOOOONG Days of 90 degree HEAT, a Schedule of Events that, FOREVER, ran hours late, with NO […]


          Each year, the Track & Field Season is made up of four (4) Developmental Meets, two (2) Qualifying Meets, and two (2) Championship Meets.  To date, the Country Mills Eagles have competed in the first three (3) Developmental Meets (Patriot’s Invitational, Constitution Classic, President’s Open), all of which are meant to allow […]

Eagles on the Hunt!

           Since Eagles are “diurnal”, they hunt during the day, because they sleep at night.  And, keep in mind, Eagles are “Apex Predators”, which means that they are at the Top of the Food Chain! 😊  When it comes to Track & Field, though, Eagles are “Hunting” for PR’s, Medals/Ribbons, and […]


An Eagle learns to soar by using Thermal Currents of air.  These warm air patterns are created by the surrounding terrain.  Eagles will spread their Wings, and their Tail Feathers, allowing the wind to carry them to new heights.  Soaring saves an Eagle energy, because it does not have to flap its Wings as often. […]


There is no question that “Adversity Develops Character”!  An individual can either seize the moment and take a stance that “Nothing will keep me from where I want to go” or they can be CRUSHED by it.  There is an old saying that, “In Every Life a Little Rain Must Fall”!  It is TRUE!  Rain […]


     We are a FREE Nation, represented by the Eagle (American Symbol of that Freedom)!  The Liberty Tour has CELEBRATED FREEDOM since 2005, which was the inaugural season for the Liberty Tour Track & Field Series.  Never taking for granted the Freedom we had, the Pandemic stretched our “Inalienable Rights” to “Life, Liberty, and […]


So often it is easy to focus on the Victory, but without understanding the Struggles along the way. For Arianna Mills, the “Journey” began at the age of 3 when she first picked up a Turbo Javelin, thinking it was just another pretty toy to play with. Always being too young to advance to the […]


Some folks spend an entire lifetime hoping to get their “Shot” in Life. All too often they are waiting for someone else to do something for them, rather to seek out opportunity, and take advantage of it! Just one (1) month ago, while at the Region 1 Track & Field Championships @ St. John’s University […]

GOLD RUSH @ St. John’s University

            There was a time when folks from the Northeast headed West due to rumors of Gold being discovered.  For the Country Mills Eagles Track & Field Team, they just headed South to NYC where Gold was abundant all weekend at the AAU Region I Track & Field Championships.  With temperatures in the 90’s, and […]

Lucky (7) Seven

            As an Athlete I ABSOLUTELY DETEST hearing someone say to me, prior to any competition, “Good Luck”!  The intention of the one who delivers that sentiment certainly DOES NOT mean any harm, but to suggest, in any way, that an Athlete needs “luck”, to successfully compete, diminishes all of the Strength Training, Drills, […]
