ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - The old saying goes hard work beats talent when talent refuses to work hard.
But when you have talent that works hard much, like the ASU track and field team you find yourself in Texas, for the division two track and field national championship.
The ASU Men's track and field team is sending five Rams to Texas this year.
ASU did well at the SIAC tournament, bringing several titles home to Albany.
Including Cervantes Jackson, who brought home 6 this year.
As the Rams finish up practice, they are all looking for their chance... to be a national champion.
“Oh yeah I’m excited," said 800 meter runner Joshua Ajiero. "I’d like to thank my coaches for getting me here. I’ve come a long way from my freshman year. And it’s really exciting to get nationals. Now that I’m here, it’s time to have fun.”
“Well for me, it’s my last year so, to go on the last year and really just be in the record books," said Senior 4x1 runner Jarvis Mingo. "Just having a chance, just means a lot to me. Leaving an imprint.”
As the Rams head out Tuesday for the national tournament, those conference champions will hopefully turn into national champions, by the end of this week.
