Community Involvement:

Southwest Sprinters TC lead by Lyndell Pittmen met with inner-city kids from the Metropolis Brookline Track Club prior to the USATF Masters Indoor National Championships in Boston, MA. Discussions about the importance of completing high school and going to college and on developing a "road map" to career success were some of the topics.
