Pine Tree Puddle Jump @ Katy Ranch - September 24, 2016

VG,VB,JVG,JVB,JHG & JHB all competed in this meet. 

First of all this was a crazy day.  The meet was delayed and the course re-routed due to a huge swarm of bees on part of the course.  This made for a hilly course.  Several people fell today and even one coach ended up at  the ER with a busted up face riding his bike and crashing!  I just have a few things to say about a couple of our teams.

Our bright spots in the day were:  Our junior high girls dominated.  Our first place Runner beat our best varsity runner's time today.  It is rare, but nice when you have a kid finish in first place out of 200 plus runners.  That is pretty special.  Her name is Emma Webb.  You can look at the results and see what the others did.  We had a junior high boy medal today!  Top 20 get a medal.  His name is Aaron Abernathy!  We had a JV girl win her first medal.  Her name is Brianna Burns. 

Our varsity boys, when comparing to other District teams are not far off from where we need to be (time wise) in finishing in 2nd or 3rd for district.  It will be tough task but these guys are working harder than ever to be the best they can be. 

Our varsity girls had a bump today.  A freshman fell and did not finish.  She learned a valuable lesson today.  She will always finish from here on out. Trust me... ;)  Had we had her do what she normally does we would have finished 3rd.  Which is where we should have been against these teams.  Growing pains are just that...they help you grow but they are painful!  Also, Alex Koudelka is back after an injury.  She will help us once she gets back in shape.
