Student Spotlight:

KING IS HEADED TO THE NATIONAL JUNIOR OLYMPICS CHAMPIONSHIPS! 

King McNack is a 9yr old third grader (21-22) from Peralta Elementary School. He enjoys playing football, basketball, and running track. 

After 2021-2022 youth football season ended King's mom (Briana Gentry) decided to enroll him in track and field with One Nation Track Club (Rancho Cucamonga) to keep him in shape for the next football season.  With his first year in Track and Field, King competed in the 100m, 200m, 400m, 4 x 100m relays, and long jump events.  King excelled at the long jump event. His personal best record in long jump was 13'11" ft at the Pasadena Running Roses Invitational.  In the USATF Region 15 Junior Olympic Championship event, King placed third with a 13'10.5" ft jump that helped him qualify for the national Junior Olympics Championships in Sacramento later this month. 

When King isn't playing football or at a track and field event, you can find him playing video games with his friends and hanging out with his family like any normal 9 year old.  

Peralta is proud of his hard work!  ​
