The Warner name is common in the general sense until you hear a familiar chant every time he is either practicing or competing at the Gately Indoor Track & Field Center. Eighth-grader Max Warner's mother is none other than television personality Val Warner. On Saturday, when Max donned the kit colors of his Windy City Hammers Track Club, Ms. Warner cheered on her son's success.

Max has enjoyed successful stints in basketball and soccer before joining track and field three years ago. No longer bubbling below the surface, Warner has now risen to the top. In his most recent performance at the CYUP Misfits Invitational, Warner won the 60m (7.50 PB) and 300m (38.85). The latter is a national leader for middle-schoolers. In traditional events, Warner has run the 200m (24.93) and 400m (58.54). As he retreats back to soccer for a while, keep an eye on this young man as he matures into one of the best performances on the scene!
