Kent Meridian Invite

Kent- Meridian – the meet that went for a LONG time!!!!

It was a long day for those of us who were there the whole time!  That is for sure but the results were pretty good for us.  With the exception of a few events we really were able to show well in most event areas.

Today we will go by event:

100m:

They boys got us off to a great start with Tim and Jason dominating their heat and finishing 5th and 6th overall and Tim setting a new PR dropping his time by almost .2 seconds

Clayton pulling in a 2nd place finish in the Freshman category

Kaily lowered her time from Thursday and Kyra set a new HS PR on her way to crushing her heat and placing 5th over.

200:

Tim set ANOTHER PR this time by .4 sec and pulled in a 4th

Regie dominated her heat and pulling in a strong 3rd place finish

400:

Morgan and Emily both had strong races and Emily set a new PR by over a full second!

1600: brought a number of PR’s Grace was 4th in the freshman race with a great run – lowering her time from Thursday by 5 seconds and a new HS PR.

Maria and Naomi really competed well and had season times.

Tanner also set a new PR as did Ayden for the boys

3200 was huge for us on this day J  Danny and Jacob both set PR’s for Jacob it was 10 secs faster than Thursday and for Danny it was a full 2 second PR

For the ladies – Bella finished 6th just off of last year’s PR but the race of the day was from Marin.  She fell and still was able to pick up a PR of right around 30 seconds – yes you read that right 30 seconds….and her first time breaking 12 minutes!!!!  GREAT RACE.

100/110 hurdle we saw season improvement from Ethan – Caleb and Riley in the short hurdles

in the 300 Hurdles Kyra dropped her time by .8 from Thursday

For the Field events, it was kind of a crazy day..

The wait times were crazy and didn’t lead to great competing and hard to compete really well.

These athletes set at least season bests for their events.

Sophia in the javelin – on her way to a 7th place finish

Kelsey and Izzy tied their PV marks but placed 4th and 7th respectively

Hannah in the Long jump

Elliot bucked the trend and had a nice PR improving another 2’ over Thursday.

Angus also had a season best in the discus.

Tim continued his full day with a season best and 8th place finish in the LJ and Caleb wasn’t far behind him with also a Season best!!

Both teams finished in the middle of the pack for team scores which is pretty good for first time at this meet and we didn’t have a full complement of athletes.  With that said, most of our athletes REALLY competed well today. Even the athletes who did not place or get bests it was nice to see them get out and just compete with the people around them.
