NORTHEAST GLENDALE ? Alan Ghazarians and Michelle Pomar were just thrilled to win their heats in Friday's 20th annual Middle School Relays at Glendale Community College.
And after they won their respective 70-yard hurdle final events, they couldn't even describe their emotions.
"I'm [still] shaking," said Pomar, an eighth-grader at Toll Middle School.
Added Ghazarians, a seventh-grader at Wilson Middle School: "I've been nervous the whole week."
Ghazarians and Pomar overcame the jitters to make their classmates proud at the relays, which featured competitions between Roosevelt, Toll, Rosemont and Wilson middle schools. Ghazarians easily won the championship heat of the hurdles in the seventh-grade boys' division before Pomar took to the track.
