Narrows league championships day 1

I thought last week was a good week – this week sure got off to a great start.  As a matter of fact so great, that we are sitting in 1st place after 1 day. (the boys are sitting in 2nd)

Current league scores:  Capital 84.5 MT 64.5 and CK 61 – gonna be a good day on Saturday.

100mH – this was a weird race as Hannah’s time kept jumping around – she was first displayed as 12th, then 11th but turned out to be actually 4th, with a new season best time and moving her way onto Districts – In the same race Ellie dropped another .25 seconds to grab 2nd place and moving on as well.  Both girls placed 2 places higher than what they were seeded.  Ellie’s time moves her up 12th all time and 7th on the sophomore list.

In the 100  – Regie got out of the blocks, probably the best she has all season long.  And took the lead from the get go and became the 1st Capital champion on the day.  In the 2nd heat Paris had the PR of the day, she dropped .46 on her way to 3rd place overall – the biggest jump in seed from anyone all day.  (seeded 11th got 3rd) . Her time puts her 21st all time and 6th on the sophomore list.

This lead directly to our 4×100 where Kailey got us off to a great start and clearly was making up ground on the teams around us.  Paris took the baton and continued the strong day – It was pretty obvious we were going to go well for us as Laurel kept the great work going and moved past the teams on the outside of us.  CK closed up the gap and even got a slight lead on us but Chloe was having none of it and closed out our 2nd place finish and getting more girls moving on.

In the field events we also got off to a great start.  In the Triple jump, Chloe and Hannah were both off to a great start and got into finals.  Both ended up with good PR’s and with 2nd (Chloe) and 4th (Hannah) place finishes punched their tickets to districts.  Hannah’s mark moved her all the way up to #10 all time and #6 sophomore mark.

Just a few feet away in the pole vault we were having a great day.  All 3 girls came away with bests.  Izzy, PR’d by a foot and tied the Capital freshman record. Kelsey JUST missed qualifying for districts (Is the league alternate).  Rosa vaulted her way to a league championship and raising her season best by 6”. Rosa is now 3rd on the senior list as well.

In the 1600 Bella raced her was to a 3 second PR and grabbing a spot to the district meet and also netting herself the #10 spot on the junior list just a few seconds from the all time list.  Maybe that will come next week. Naomi also raced to a new Season best and a spot on the podium.

Last event on the track was the 400 – we had 3 young ladies in the race and it really could not have gone much better for us.  Regie, who wasn’t feeling well, ran a PR and got a 4th place finish which is good enough to move through to districts.  Lexi was seeded 8th in her heat, had a great finish with a PR and a 6th place finish (bumped to 7th by a girl in 2nd heat) Kelsey, who hurt her rib cage in the PV – ran a great race today and also came away with a PR.  Lexi’s time breaks her into the all time list at #21 and is the 4th fastest freshman time.

The last event to finish, for the girls, today was the discus.  Both Tia and Jeanette competed very well and finish 3rd and 4th, both securing a spot at the district meet.  Tia’s PR today moved her to the 20th spot all time, and the 6th spot on the sophomore list.

Saturday our bus leaves at 9:00 – we should have some room to you want to tag along.  Let us know if you are interested.  Also, I think there is a VERY real chance that we will be league champions!!!  I would love it to see a bunch of girls around to grab the trophy at the end of the meet.  Please, Please, PLEASE hang around and be apart of the celebration, should it happen.
