Sprint Dreams Summary
She can't speak patois, she can't find love, and she can't convince her college coach to give her a scholarship. Despite all of that, eighteen-year-old college sophomore, Makeda Delane, is determined to compete at Nationals.
Makeda believes her path to athletic success will be a smooth ride once she proves to her coach and teammates that she can compete with the best of collegiate track and field. Instead, tension evolves between Makeda and her teammates and pushes her into a series of decisions that could destroy her All-American dreams.
She knew becoming an elite athlete would be difficult, but she did not expect to find herself at odds with those she trusts, or herself.
