Assistant track and field coach at ECU, Udon Cheek, remarks, “It’s impressive, but the thing is, they planned for this.” They planned for it, they journaled about it, they put it in writing, and they regularly admitted it. That’s what they told me they wanted at the start of the season. They didn’t just sling words at the wall, hoping they might strike it, but they

truly made the effort.”

The two participated in races such as the 100-meter hurdles and sprint.
“I just like seeing all the pros,” McMillan remarks. “It was honestly the most relaxed I’ve felt at any of my races, but of course it was serious because we worked so hard for it.”

Additionally speaking to WITN, Mouzzon said, “That’s been my dream since I was a kid and honestly, I did not know how I was going to get there but I just put my faith in God and put my faith in Coach Cheek.”

McMillan told WITN, “I was able to be happy regardless of the outcome because I know that I was on track to do something great but there’s greater ahead.” “I learned so much in those races and I got a message from the Lord,” McMillan said.

Additionally, Mouzzon states, “It’s taught me how to work… put your head down and work, and when you look up, the results will be there.” It has also taught Mouzzon how to be patient and to trust God with everything that she has.

Coach Cheek and McMillan intend to pursue their track and field careers at ECU prior to McMillan’s master’s degree graduation.
