To qualify for the league meet you must be in the top 12 in the league and hit a league qualifying standard  - Since the format has changed a little since we were last in this league I am not sure if they are going to fill to 12 if the athletes didn’t hit the B standard:

Meet @ Shelton

Today was an interesting day – The weather was great as we left Capital – by the time we got to Shelton the wind was getting a little gusty, then as the meet went along the wind became pretty heavy and constant.  With that said we ended up with 21 Season or lifetime bests – now granted 7 of those were from girls who ran an event for the first time. That still leaves 14 girls who had bests today J

It was a really good day in the throws today – It started right off with Janessa throwing an 8’6” PR in the discus – That is a 14% improvement.  Right after that throw I walked over to the Shot put to see Grace have an exactly 1’ PR in the event.

Bailey continued her undefeated streak in the Narrows League winning today matching her lifetime PR of 33’ 4” in the shot put.

Then over at the Javelin Makenzie throws the Javelin 81’7”, which is just about a 9’ PR for her.  This makes Makenzie the 4th girl who has made the all time list this year in the Javelin – She checks in at 24 all time. Faith, Elise and Annie (more on her later) also got PR’s in a tough event today

Aven – running her first 1600 ran a gusty race and set a nice season record along with Marin – Hannan and Skylar.  All doing a nice job of dealing with the wind to get to good marks.

Other performances that got in the record book today would be Payton in the 400 she added her name to the Senior list today at #6.

There were a number of other PR’s today but there are a few that stick out to me – Kaily – who had fought off just about every sickness this season gets a PR in the 100 in a big headwind – one of just 2 girls from any of the schools who got a PR today in the 100 (of those who had run it before today)

In the 300 Hurdles, as in the Javelin, we see someone new stepping up each week – a few weeks ago it was Kim, last week Hannah and today it was Torie.  She had a great, GREAT race today.  Her last 2 hurdles were absolutely amazing and she literally won the race in the last 3 steps with a new Season best taking 5 seconds off of her time!

Probably my favorite PR’s of the day came from Annie.  She had a little PR in the long jump AFTER waiting in long lines and then having to jump directly into the wind – but then also in the Javelin throwing a 5’ PR in an event that had the wind blowing some Javelins literally sideways – getting 2 PR’s today in events that were highly affected by the winds is a big deal.

Central Kitsap – Black Hills @ Capital

Starting off I want to say how AMAZING all the efforts were today – I saw sooo many ladies really competing well today and it really showed in the results.  We had 37 individual season records and 2 of our relays put Season Bests out as well – those are truly spectacular results, particularly based on the weather we had today – not awful but not great either.

We lost a very close match – 71-65 but we competed very well.

Here are some of the things that stuck out to me today:

  1. Hannah W competed in 4 events today (a first for her) and set a personal best in EVERY one of those 4 events – Long jump, Triple Jump, 300 hurdles and the 4×400. That is a Tough day and she totally knocked it out of the park
  2. Hannah F. stepped in for a sick teammate in the 4×400 and set a personal best for the 400 J  it is so nice to have tough team minded kids ready to step up when you need it.  I know she was more than a little scared and did GREAT
  3. Our Javelin throwers continue to totally crush the event.  Gwen, Sophia, , McKenzie, Tanna, Elise and Faith ALL had personal bests today (more later)
  4. It is also really great for me to see how well we are supporting and cheering for each other during the meet and how much pride we have for our team.
  5. All 4 girls in the 800 had season bests, Payton, Naomi, Aven and Anna
  6. 7 girls had bests in the 1600 today – led by Audrey’s 23 sec improvement and Inanna’s 18. We also saw Lauren lower he league leading time by another 5 seconds
  7. Kelsey and Ellie continue to have strong seasons by filling in all across the track and the field and putting forth great efforts along the way!

Record book entries:

Running events –

800m –   Payton checks in as the #9 senior

1600m – Lauren Moves up to the #4 senior marks

3200m – Naomi runs her first 3200 and checks in at #12 ALL TIME – and the #5 freshman time –

Javelin – Gwen moved up to the #17 overall spot with a 9 foot PR today – Sophia also had a 9 foot PR and put herself into the #9 freshman spot moving Ellie down to #10 and they are just 6” away from making the all-time top 25 list.

Next up:  This weekend we have a varsity only invitational in Renton (Renton SD stadium) The Arnie Young invite is a great event and really top quality competition – for those going the bus will LEAVE Capital at 8:00am and return about 6pm.

Spring Break:  We will be having practices for those who are still in town.  I will send out all the schedules as soon as I confirm with all the coaches so that I don’t send out wrong information.
