There are but a few milestone events that define the lives of children as they get older and long days turn into memories. The death last month of Zay Xzavion Mickey, 12, was one of them for the students of Cherokee Elementary School.

The school’s track team took up his nickname, X, as a rallying cry, even printing t-shirts to commemorate his life and his influence on their sport.

And last week, The New Tech at Cherokee Elementary track and field team won first place at the Small Institute MPS Elementary Track and Field meet, where they really weren’t expected to win, but to add to the bittersweet victory, they won overall, not just among small schools.

Students and teachers alike wore the shirts honoring X

“It was fun, we won for the first time,” said classmate Jericha Hughes, 13. “I did it all for Zay. I love and miss him.”

Students made and carried “We play for Zay” signs at the meet.

“It was a group effort,” said Physical Education teacher Beth Wells. “From the scholars who worked hard to train for the event, the teachers who gave of their time, the cafeteria staff, community support - including donations of shirts for every participating scholar.”
