Camden Military Academy’s track and field team competed in its first meet of the 2014 season on Thursday, March 13th, at Camden High School. Teams from Kershaw, Chester, and Chesterfield Counties were present. In addition to CMA and Camden High School, teams from Lugoff-Elgin, McBee, and Great Falls competed.

With such a large and experienced field, CMA had a very challenging time of it against so many large and longstanding rivals. This year’s team is among the smallest and least experienced in the school’s history. Nevertheless, the Spartans showed a lot of heart and represented their school with pride. Participants included Ethan Freeman (discus), Derriron Giles (800m), Colby Johnson (shot put), Devin Larsen (1600m), Jake Ligon (discus), Alex Newton (100m, 400m), George Spiros (800m), and Jacobi Velarde (discus).
