On More Coverage for Baha'i Grandpa Rocky's Pride and Joy: Tierra Crockrell is featured on

From: CrockrellR

Go Baha'i!

She is an 8 time National Champion and holds national records in Track & Field. She is the 2009 AAU Primary National Champion in the 100m. She is the 2010 AAU Great Lakes Indoor National Champion in the multi-event, 55m dash, 200m and long jump; and the 2010 AAU Northern Indoor National Champion in the multi-event, high jump and long jump.
Rocky is understandably proud of his granddaughter Tierra. -gw
Tierra’s coach, Coach Mike Cunliffe (Head Coach of the Seattle Speed Track Club) had this to say about “Tete”; “our club has multiple national medalists and national champions but only 2 athletes have won double gold at the national championships. Tierra has the opportunity to win 3 golds.” Our club has national level youth athletes from the US, Haiti, Kenya, France and the Philippine’s and I can say without a doubt there is not a better 9 yr old and under T&F athlete in this state and probably in the country.
A teaching story... When I was out going door-to-door during our last intensive campaign in the Hilltop neighborhood, my team member and I stopped at a home where a man happened to be visiting. That man was Tierra's coach, Mike (Doc), visiting from Seattle. We were talking about spiritualizing the neighborhood with Baha'i core activities aimed at children and youth. Mike immediately brought up his work as a coach and brought up the name of Tierra, not knowing that we already knew of her through Grandpa Rocky's stories. -gw
