WFMD/Nymeo Athletes of the Month: May 2016


The WFMD/Nymeo High School Athletes of the Month: 2 State Track and Field Champions, Jaida Smith of Frederick High School and Erik Jones of Brunswick High School are the guests this Sunday on Frederick County Sports Weekend on WFMD Radio and WFMD.COM!!!!

It would be difficult for any athlete anywhere to have a better month than Jaida Smith and Erik Jones (see attached photo) had in May of 2016! They are both sprint champions but both are champions in other events as well! Jaida Smith is only a Sophomore but this is what she did in May in Girls Track and Field: Won First Place in the 100 meter dash (12.31), 200 meter dash (24.59) and the Long Jump (17’7″) at the CMC Championships, Won the same 3 events at the 3A West Regional Meet, and then won the 3A 100 meter dash at the state of Maryland Meet at Morgan State and also ran the anchor lap for the first place winning Frederick High 400 meter relay team, took second place, losing by a hair, in the 200 meter dash and taking second place in the Long Jump. Senior Erik Jones had such a good month of May that he says on the show that he dreaded having his high school career at Brunswick come to an end (he starred for the Railroaders in football and basketball too). Here is what Mr. Jones accomplished in Boys Track and Field in the month of May: Second place in both the 100 and 200 meter dash at the CMC Championships, got First Place in both the 100 and 200 at the 1A West Regional Meet, then ran a leg on both the First Place Brunswick 400 meter and 800 meter relay teams at Regionals for 4 gold medals, and then he took First Place in the 1A 100 meter (11.12) and 200 meter dash (22.57) at the State Meet and also took First Place as a member of the Brunswick 400 meter relay team. You can understood why he did want graduation to ever come! The coaches Rob Dixon at Frederick and Tony Lawson at Brunswick are proud of these two young stars. Erik is aiming for Salisbury University where he says the coaches will allow him to play both football and track and field next year. For Jaida , she says she just wants to keep improving in both indoor and outdoor track and field for the next two years at Frederick. The sky would seem to be the limit here! Meet both of these Track and Field stars this Sunday (6/19) at 12:05 pm on 930 WFMD Radio and the streaming audio of
