- A Tribute -

The good man gone
Yet still here
We listen to him
Even though he isn't there
We follow our hearts
While following him
He says keep your head up
Even though our heads still fall
You're losing
But really in his book
You're winning
HE is Warren Lieberman 11/4/46 - 8/16/05 Rest In Peace Coach

The following is a short story written by Roman Phillips, 10 years old, during his trip to the Jr. Olympics in New Orleans. This is one of many written by our athletes which we will feature here on our website.

"I ran the 800m today. It started at 9:00 a.m. but I did not run until 10:00. I think I did O.K. in the 800m. I could have ran the first lap faster and dropped my shoulders/arms. My feet started to hurt because I was wearing the wrong shoes. I watched Frankie and Ty do their events also."

"I awake early went to the track so I could high jump. I didn't do so well in the high jump. Then we left and followed Coach Don downtown and God knows where...No offense Coach Don. Then we went back to the hotel and we didn't do much. Later my dad and I went to the practice track to throw the discus and then it was back to the hotel."

"I didn't do a lot today but I had a little spark. I woke up got dressed and went to City Park to see Frankie, Roman, Rodney and Jalen run the 4x400m relay. Then my mom Roman, Frankie and I walked down to where Nick was throwing shot-put. After that my mom and I got slushi's and walked to the car. My mom drove towards downtown parked and we caught the trolley. It took us downtown to the mall on the Mississippi River (Riverwalk). We ate at the food court. My mom had a po-boy sandwich and I had, to me, the best hamburger I ever tasted with great seasoned fries. After eating we ate some more. This time we had sweet snacks. I had a caramel green apple with pecans. After all that we caught the trolley back to the rental car. We got caught in traffic. When we got back to the hotel I changed clothes for discus practice."

On Saturday April 17th, 5 of AEIOUs top athletes made the trip down south to Bakersfield to compete in the Greyhounds invitational meet. Kendall Banks, Roman Phillips, Ronald Frasier, Cody Lieberman and Nick Myers all performed very well. These athletes competed in 10 events and they won 10 awards. Frasier and Lieberman lead the way with double golds. Frasier won the midget boys 100m dash with a time of 13.15 and the long jump with a leap of 15'9". Lieberman won both the midget boys shot-put (31'7") and discus (PR 79'). Nick Myers won the youth boys discus with a PR of 103' and finished 2nd in the shot-put with a throw of 35'4". Kendall Banks in his 1st year of competition had a 3rd place finish in the subbantam boys 100m dash with a time of 17.9 and a 4th place finish in the 200m dash. Roman Phillips also won 2 awards.
