Youth track team Compton Electric Speed has been representing our community and setting records at track and field meets across the country. Compton Chamber of Commerce congratulates the team, and wishes all the success for the team in the years to come. Compton business community is proud of you all.
The young team is coached by the pair of Compton-born coaches Keith Burroughs and Joe Hunter. The four up and coming 14-year-old track stars Kaedyn Burroughs, Jaelen Hunter, Jayden Thomas and Kamil Pelovello are not only team mates but also very close friends.
Though the Compton Electric Speed team is fairly new, its imprint on the youth track and field scene has already been made. The four athletes are all ranked in the top 20 in the USATF national rankings and have been breaking records all summer. The successful team will compete at a pair of Junior Olympic events later this month in Oregon and Iowa.
