Student Spotlight: LAILAH HARRIS, 8th grade

3…2…1 and she is off! 9 seconds later, Lailah looks up to the score board to see her name in first place!

Lailah Harris, an 8th grade student athlete, has been a member of the Metropolis Cobras for the past 7 years. Lailah heard about the organization through her sister’s friend who was also the coach. Lailah immediately fell in love with running. During the past seven years, she has built many friendships and continues to grow as a person and as a runner. Her favorite event is the 55 meter dash, which has earned her many first place finishes.

The Metro Cobras is a non-profit academic and athletic enrichment program whose mission is to develop student-athletes by offering track and field and supporting academic opportunities.

Running takes your body, mind, and spirit to a better place. The simple act of young athletes moving their feet can make them healthier, happier, and more confident.

We are so proud of Lailah and her accomplishments in this amazing sport!
