Thunderbirds' Track and Field used a team effort to come away with the 2nd place national trophy from the 2014 NJCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships held in New York City.

The team earned 20 All-American Honors (Top 6) and set four school records (Gleneve Grange- Pentathlon, Mariam Kromah- 400M, Shanika Dessein- 600M, and Purity Murray- 5000M).

“This meet concludes a great indoor part of our season” commented Assistant Coach Jeff Becker. “This is the first national trophy that NMJC has brought home since the team tied for the national title back in 2010.

The T-Birds will be competing in the Outdoor meets for the next few weeks. More to come. Go Thunderbirds!
