Narrows League Day 2

Well most of you already know the good news.  The Capital ladies brought home our first League championship since 2011.  We have the very last championship in the  Narrows league since our league next year is called the South Sound Conference.

We scored 184.5 points – far better than the 120-130 I thought we would get.  CK and Wilson had 136.5 and 132.5 – they were the top 2 last season and everyone expected them to be the top 2 this year.  Another interesting note is that combined with the guys we had the highest total in 3A.

On to the happy updates. – First of all realize that today was not a ready that was really conducive to PR’s too much wind and colder than it has been.

The day started well over in the HJ  – Laurel pulled in a strong 2nd place while Maddie tied her PR and earned her way onto the podium in 7th.  Kelbe who was seeded 11th finished 9th

At the Javelin runway, Sophie was fighting the wind and finished in 3rd for the day. Breanna who was just barely added to the meet and seeded 16th finished a strong 11th today.

Our first event on the track was the 4×200 where Chloe got us off to a great start, Hannah and Laurel definitely didn’t do anything to hurt us but Wilson was also having a strong day.  Regie got the baton in strong position but on this day Wilson was just too strong – We finished a strong 2nd with a new PR.  And beat MT who has beat us a few times this year.

Next up was the 3200 an event that we were seeded well in but CK was seeded a little better.  It turned out that both groups ran well.  Bella raced her way to a 56 sec PR and a 2nd place finish.  That time puts her 16th all time and #8 on the junior list (fun fact:  1 spot in front of my daughter) Right behind her was Naomi with another strong tactical race.  Kallie and Marin were both right at their PR’s

About this time in the meet CK starts to make a little run on us. In the 300 Hurdles they pick up some points but we had Ellie who ran strong with a 5th place finish.  The BIG race came from Maddie who PR’d by over 2 seconds and based on the race I don’t know which is bigger – hers or Bella’s, they were both pretty amazing.

Next up was the 800, the event that CK has the biggest advantage in.  They were able to put 4 girls on the podium to our 1. And really make up some points on us.  But it sure wasn’t from lack of effort.  Aven ran her best time of the season, placing 6th and qualifying for one more week. Inanna was about to bring in a 4 sec drop with an amazing finish and Maria followed suit with her 4 sec PR.

About now I was getting worried about the overall scores.  Wilson was closing fast and CK was now just 7 points behind us with 5 events to go. Next up for us was the Shot put – Probably the best team event for us on the day.  I walk over to be greated by Addie who was in 1st place,  and excited because Elise and Janessa were joining her in finals.  Well the #1 seeded girl ended up coming back and retaking 1st place but Addie finished 2nd. Janessa had an amazing day throwing a PR of 2’2” and throwing over 30’ for the very first time. She ended up in 4th and just in front of Elise who finished 5th with a PR of just over a foot herself!!  This dropped the CK girls out of scoring and gave us a huge bump that nobody could catch!!

Back on the track was the 200 where Regie finished 2nd and Paris, as in the 100m, ran another huge PR.  She took .5 sec off of her best, while she didn’t place it was a great run, that ends up being the 5th fastest time of the year for Capital in the 200.

In the Long jump, out last field event, it was a rough day for ALL the jumpers.  They were all jumping into a head wind and it wasn’t warm enough to really make it a good day.  Chloe fought her way into 5th place and Hannah joined her on the podium in 8th.

By this time we have over a 30 point lead and the results of the 4×4 don’t matter in the team race, but there are bragging rights to be had.  Our team of Kelsey, Tia, Morgan and Lexi run our 3rd fastest time of the year and get a solid 4th place finish.

We finished with 23 lifetime or season bests in this meet.  And we did something that RARELY, if ever happens.  We are taking at least 1 girl to district in every event, not most but EVERY event.  I could not find a time in Capital history where that has happened.  I will have to look again on another day when I can make sure I am giving it an accurate look.
