Weston Ranch Track and Field is off to a fast start thanks in part to sprinter Robert Battle.

At the team’s first competitive meet, it was student-athlete Battle who earned the Cougars a win.

On Feb. 24, Battle beat fellow runners in the race to the finish line in the 100-meter dash at the annual Viking Invitational at Edison High School to his first 1st Place win of the athletic season.

“Winning the 100m at the Viking Invitational felt great,” Battle told The Prowl, ahead of the team traveling to take on Oakdale High School for a dual meet Thursday. “Knowing all the sweat, tears and dedication actually turned into something good.”

Battle said that he plans to continue to make track a part of his immediate and long-term plans after graduation.

“My personal goals are to constantly get better as the days blow by,” Battle said, “and for my team goals I wish I can help everyone improve dramaticall”

For Battle, his top three sprinters include Justin Gatlin, Usain Bolt, and Michael Johnson.

“Each of them had their own way of becoming some of the greatest runners the world has ever seen,” Battle said.

After graduation, Battle said that he plans to attend Modesto Junior College for his first two years before transitioning to the University of Florida.

Once there, Battle said, his plans include getting “my master’s in marine biology and hopefully get the chance to take my talents to the 2020 Olympics.”

To realize that dream, Battle will need to match endurance with his undeniable speed.
