Arnie Young information:

Overall it was a good day.  We had 22 season or personal best, which is really great based on the obstacles we had – end of spring break – cold weather – wind – etc.

For the first time this year we got to run the Distance Medley Relays (DMR) and faired pretty well.  The girls ended up on the podium with a 7th place finish, our first awards of the day!!!! Well done Melissa, Aven, Sarah and Maria J

In the 100 Paris set a new season best and is closing in on her overall PR from last year, I have a feeling that will fall soon.  Jason brought the speed to the 200 and set a new season best and took over the area lead in that event (you can read more about that here:  http://www.theolympian.com/sports/high-school/article143672884.html )

Then he turned around and also did it in the 400 (actually the 400 came first but we won’t tell)

Also in the 400 Parker, Regie and Lexi all set at least season bests, pretty good day for us in that event!!

In the 1600 both Morgan A. and Shasta raced to new PR’s and solid races.  The 3200 belonged to Bella as she also had an area best time and just over 1 second off of her PR from the district meet last season.

The girls 4×100 did really well considering we had to make a change literally 25 min before the event started as Kaily tweaked her back in the 100 and could not get loose so we didn’t want risk injury. Thank you Kelsey for being ready to roll on short notice.

Field events provided some nice outcomes for us as well.  First up was Addie in the shot, continues to move up the all-time list and placed 4th on the day.   Izzy had a nice day in the Pole vault with a new PR getting over that 8’ barrier – I expect that she and Kelsey will both soon be over 9’.  Tia really had a fine day as she started with a 1” PR in the shot put but came up HUGE in the discus!  She squeaked into finals with a decent throw but not what she wanted and then came up in her first throw of finals and had a BIG 3” PR throwing over 100’ for the first time and come home with a throw of 102’5” and a ribbon for her efforts

For the guy’s field events: Ethan came in with a nice PR in the Long jump at 19-10.5 and will hit 20 and n the Very near future.  Paden got in a good start in the Javelin with a throw of 124’  Tyghler also had a 4’+ pr in the discus

Next up is a HOME meet with Gig Harbor (we could use some help) this Thursday and then a trip to UO for the Oregon Relays for those that get in (more information to come)
