The weather is always a significant factor at this meet. While the temps weren’t as hot as in years past the humidity did not help the running conditions. The team had a strong performance against a quality field. We defiantly saw improvements from last week, so that’s a good take away.
Emma and Jadin had some trouble with the famous hill 2 miles into the race. Going up, they lost some ground, but they were able to turn things around to earn a medal. Both thought the 1st mile was a big key to their success as it put them on a good pace for the rest of the race.
Very pleased with our boys finishing 5th out of 14 as a team probably our best finish since I’ve been coaching. Ben ran a great race he has made so much progress from last season he gave it everything he had and held on to get the final medal. Max didn’t have the best of races but was a competitor and hung in there to earn a medal. Our depth for the boys’ team lets us have some kids gain some confidence by running JV, both Spencer and Tyten were determined to take home a medal, and both did which was good to see.
Next week is a big week homecoming week and our home invite Thursday at Calvin Crest. I’m excited to see our kids improve again next week.
