Peninsula at Capital

Peninsula at Capital

Cougs win –Cougs win – COUGS WIN!!!  When we left the meet we thought the boys had won , they did 76-69, after sweeping the PV to come from behind on the last event to win.  The Girls left the meet thinking we had lost 71-70, turns out we won because the shot put had not been entered.  We went 1-2 in that event and WON 78-72!!!!!!

Since field events were the last to get added lets start with those today!!!

The team set 32 new PR’s today (boys and girls combined) just in the field events – some of that was from the fact that some people were doing events for the first time but the VAST majority were not those.

The boys won 4 of the 6 field events today. Tim – LJ, Ethan – PV, John – HJ, Elliot – Disc, and Angus – shot.

The BIG one of the day came from Elliot who in 3 meets has PR’d at 108’ then 110’ and today throws 126’9.5” he is now 33’ better than he was at the end of last season!!!  Also with PR’s in the disc today were Colby, Tyghler, Jake, Kees, and Corbin.

The Javelin throwers had PR’s from Mika, Ryan, Carter and then Ronan hit triple digits for the first time today throwing EXACTLY 100’ J

Tyghler continued his strong early freshman year by throwing a 1’ PR today and Korbin Ryan and Milo also had or set new PR’s in this event.

Our jumps were pretty strong today – As mentioned earlier Ethan, Noah and Carter swept the Vault and Hunter was just out of the points with an new PR.  Tim and Carson controlled the LJ going 1-2 with a season best and PR respectively Colby and Hunter also both set PR’s  Ryder had a season best in the Triple and a strong 3rd place season best in the High Jump. And John hit 6-0 for the first time this year to win the HJ.  And he only had 2 misses leading up to that .

For the girls in the field events we either scored 2 of the 3 places, won, or did both in ALL of the field events.

Starting with the throws – Addie and Janessa went 1-2  and Tia established a new PR.  Addie’s throw of 34-05 is a PR by 10” and now moves her up the all time list to 11th and is 9th on the senior list.  Not to be outdone Tia and Jeanette went 1-2 in the discus, both with season bests.  Sada, Tayler, Hailey W, and Lizzy all checked in with new PR’s today!! Haileys was just under a 6’ improvement and Lizzy was right around 4’.  The javelin saw Sophia and Kelsey bringing in points, we were expecting the Sophia win but Kelsey picked up the Javelin this week for the first time and beat Peninsulas #2 girl by just 2” grabbing that all important point for us.

In the HJ – Kyra and Tae’lor both had great PR’s today to go 2nd and third, and Aven also set a new PR with a 4” improvement.  The long jump had Chloe in 2nd and Emily getting almost a foot and a half PR and her first ever points in a varsity event pulling in the 3rd place.  Not to be outdone but Katerina had just under a 2’ PR which is just HUGE for a Long jump!!!  Maddie M also checked in the LJ with a PR.

The running events we continued to have great things going on.

100m: PR’s out of Kelsey, Emily, Yulisa, Jeanette, Katerina, Ann, and Uluani for the girls and the boys had Ethan, Carson, Gabe and Colby (that’s 3 for him if you weren’t counting!)  Tim and Ethan were just .01 apart at the finish line getting 2nd and 3rd and Paris pulled in a very strong 2nd

200m:  PR’s by Carson, Clayton, Nic, Michael and Jesiah and the girls had a ton of season records but Maddie M checked in with a nice PR Chloe brought home a 3rd for the girls. While Tim pulled away to win the boys with Carson in a very solid 3rd place.

400:  Jason pulled in a win for the guys and Colby set his HS pr in the 400 (pretty sure that is 4 events 4 PR’s) all the guys had at least a season best. Lexi pulled in a very solid win and Maddie M finished 3rd scoring her first HS points in a meet (also a PR)

800:  Emily J and Aven were able to bring in 2nd and 3rd for the team and Emma joined Emily as they set new PR’s today The boys swept with Tanner winning and setting a new PR and Zach and Parker (2nd – 3rd) also super solid races.  Jeremy, Damian, Jared and Micah all had PR’s today.

1600:  Every boy that ran set a PR today, Cameron, Tommy and David all had their best races.  Shasta picked up her PR and her 2nd win in 2 weeks in league competition today. She was joined by Melissa, Tayler, Sarah, Nancy and Hope all with PR’s. For Sarah it was her first 1600 of the season and a 6 sec PR!

3200:  There were some GREAT races here today on both sides.  For the Boys Dan (2nd) Jacob, Morgan, Joe and Ezra all had PR’s and Dan’s race against the Peninsula was just outstanding. On the Girls side there was an AMAZING 3 way race for the points that finished 1st-3rd all withing 2 seconds of each other.  Naomi and the 2 peninsula girls were all fighting and competing for the whole race. Grace finished just out of the points but broke 13 min in her first ever 3200. Maria not only PR’d but broke her season goal time today!!!  Time to set a new one.

110H – the times are currently wrong for the boys hurdles so I can’t comment on Ebens time but he got out there and competed in an event that is very tough for freshman guys – those hurdles are HIGH.  In the 300’s both Steven and Eben set new PR’s

100mH this was a good event for the girls – every girl set a new PR or at least a season best – Ellie ended up with a solid Win by just .02 sec and Maddie T had just under a full 2nd PR.

For the 300’s the Peninsula girl was able to get her Pay back on Ellie beating her to the tape by .03 seconds for snag 2nd place from us.  Kyra, Maddie T, and Riley all had PR’s today.

The relays were REALLY great for us today.

We won both the boys relays (4×400 was a season best set by Nic, Parker, Zach and Tanner ) and the girls 4×1 ( Season best by Kaily, Kyra, Paris and Regie) and 4×2 ( Season best by Maggie, Hannah, Paris, and Regie)  before Peninsula grabbed victory in the 4×400. If you didn’t see the girls relays you missed out.  Both races were really tight until Regie took control in the Anchor leg of both relays. Also, the 2nd 4×200 team today also beat our previous season best in the 4×200.

Currently we have 14 boys ranked in the top 5 in their event for the league and our relays are both in the top 2.

For the girls we have 13 in the top 5 and Ellie leads the league in the 100m Hurdles and Kelsey leads the league in the PV.  All of our relays are top 5 and tonights 4×200 time took over the league lead.

Thanks for Reading -  It’s fun writing these up when sooo many great things are happening.  I hope to have many more great things to chat about for the rest of the season.
