On Saturday, January 21, about 40 athletes of Jamaica, Brooklyn and Rockaway combined NY Novas Track and Field Club, competed in YMCA Winter Series-1 at Park Slope YMCA Armory Track in Brooklyn.

Novas showed off their teamwork by running a 4X200m and 4X400m relay, and their Midget Division 4X400m relay team won silver medals.

The team also competed in 200m-dash and 3000m-run.

Rockaway Novas rookie, fifth-grader Iyana Lee (10), took part in 200m-dash in 33.56 seconds, 10th place over all in Midget Division. Also, Daikichi Washington (13) raced the 3000m-run, finished in 12 minutes and 8.8 seconds, came in 5th place in Youth Division and brought a medal back to Rockaway.
