BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) -- Gary Dickey and the Brazos Valley World Class Sprinters will send eight athletes to compete in five events this weekend at Games of Texas TAFF Track Meet in McAllen.

On the girls side Da'janae Pharms will run in the 100 and 200 meters while also competing in the 4 x 100 sprint relay along with Onterria Hunter, Lillie Burnett, and Garlanesha Gilbert.
The Brazos Valley World Class sprinters have been working hard and not avoiding to heat, so they'll be ready to compete this weekend when the heat index in McAllen will be in the triple digits.
"I feel pretty prepared. We've been working hard outside like for the past month or so. And I feel like I'm ready to just go ahead and take the win home," said Pharms.
"We're in a very good spot. We're going in ranked 8th in the 4 by 1 in the state meet against cats we've already ran against and know that we can beat. We're going in ranked 6th in the 4 by 4 so you know we've got speed on this end. Durability. So you know we're going in competitive," added Madison.
The Brazos Valley World Class Sprinters will leave for the meet on Friday. The prelims are Saturday and the group hopes to run for gold on Sunday.
