Peyton McNamara: Junior Track Captain, Peyton McNamara, showcased her skills at the Western Division Championships. McNamara won the 50-meter dash, and participated on the winning 4x200 relay team.
Forde has been voted by the students of Brien McMahon High School as, The Athlete of the Week. Senior Track captain, who is committed to the University of Miami, is a top threat for many other track stars around the country. Forde is number one in the nation for Men’s Triple Jump. He says, “I’m very comfortable,” after being asked how it feels to be number one in the nation. Forde’s freshman year opened up with him being a three sport athlete but for his senior year he had decided to focus on just track and it seems to have been paying off. Not only is he number one but he is also number six for the Men’s Long Jump. The Brien McMahon Track program has been noticed more because of Forde, however, when asked about the chances of BMHS winning a state championship he states, “It isn’t an individual that can win States because of the lack of seniors, so it's going to be hard but not impossible.” Forde is a very important athlete figure to the Brien McMahon community.
