Relay Team Headed To Chocotopia

Tim, Devonte, Xavier and LaQuincy are fast enough on the track without a sugar high.

"The lowest place we've gotten as a relay team is second place," Tim explained.

But you take a group of 12 and 13-year-olds and give them a tour and free samples at the Hershey Chocolate Plant, and that same team may out run Olympians.

"After we leave the tour, they will have candy bars and we can get one," Devonte said.

This will be Devonte's third trip to the North American Finals and his third trip to the Hershey Chocolate Plant.

"Most of the stuff, they won't let you touch," Devonte laughed.

Sweeter than the chocolate bars is the teams rank. They are first in the nation in the age group. The four will be among the 400,000 to compete... and get free candy.

The Hershey's Track & Field North American Final Meet will be held August 2-5.
