Capital vs Shelton – first meet of the year.

Capital at Shelton Meet #1

Well the weather held up better than expected but clearly wasn’t the best we could have had!

It was a great start for us J we had a bunch of PR’s (Personal records for those of you who are new to the term) I won’t talk about SR (Season Records) because it is our first meet of the year and everyone got one.

On the girl’s side:

We set 34 PR’s today – many of them were because this was the first time that they competed at the high school level J  but there were a few that really stood out to me as I watched the meet.  Right away you could see that Marin was ready to roll in the 3200 running an 11 sec PR over last year.   Jumping right over to the Pole vault – Izzy tied her lifetime PR and Kelsey set a new lifetime PR of 8’ which moves her to 5th all-time and the 3rd person on the junior list.

Maddie T. actually had the fastest time of the day in the 100 hurdles out of the 2nd heat.  A really great run for her first HS race.  Back to the field events we had had some pretty outstanding performances.  Addie set a lifetime PR in the shot put by 9” it moves her up the all-time list to #14 and puts her in #11 on the senior lists.  Then over at the HJ Kyra S. got her first HS win going 4-6 and almost getting 4-8.

On the day, we ended up winning 14 of 18 events and sweeping the points in 4 events on the day! Running away with the totals, winning 96-32.

On the boy’s side:

The boys set 41 PR’s (Personal records for those of you who are new to the term) I won’t talk about SR (Season Records) because it is our first meet of the year and everyone got one.  Many of the PR’s are because it was the first HS competition for many of our guys today!

They ended winning the day 83-53 in a very nice showing today.  The boys won 11 of 17 events and swept all the points in 2 events.  Some highlight marks for the day.  Tim F had a great 100 in a new PR, starting the season better than he ended last year which was pretty darn good.  Clayton won his heat of the 100 in convincing fashion, he would have been 5th in the varsity race.

Tanner set a new PR during his victory in the 1600, and then the distances continued to roll in the 3200.  Dan raced to victory with a PR but Jacob and Joe helped sweep the event all with PR times.

In the discus Elliot had to overcome a late field trip bus and still made it to the meet getting a nice PR to place 2nd in the discus. It was actually just under a 15’ PR which is pretty impressive.

Noah Hamilton also PR’d in the PV – (Great day in that event for the Cougs) going 11-0 that is a full foot PR for him.  Ryder won his first ever Triple jump event even after having to run back and forth with the running events and the HJ.  In the long jump the boys were also able to get a sweep!  Ethan set a new outdoor LJ PR while competing for Capital (I think he told me he had jumped better but I could be wrong)

All in all, it was a good day for Capital!!

Next up we have Kent-Meridian invite on Saturday – be at the school by 6:45am and we should be back around 5:30.   Please be prepared with food!  Next week we host Peninsula
