The sprinters had a solid performance this weekend. McKay Christensen got things started on Friday night with an outstanding performance in the 400M with a 9th place finish overall. On Saturday, Andrew Glenn ran well in the 60M and the 200M.
On the Women's side Kate Saunders and Rylee Wood had a strong performances in both the 60M and the 200M.
The distance team ran really well this week. They have worked really hard for the last 8 week and it showed. There where a whole slew of PB and we are still in indoor. Most of the distance runners where required to run conservitivly and work on race tactics. The goal was to practice team synergy and negitive splitting. Even though times where good most of them had more to give.
Boys 3200 -
Duncan Forrest : was first through on the boys side splitting a 5:21 first mile and closing in a 5:12. Ducans previous PR was 11:15 which he did at the end of outdoor last year. That is a 45 second PR already.
Justin Roylance: Justin is only a sophmore but he is showing that he can run with anyone. Justin 1600 PR last year was 5:15. Justin set his new PR in the 1600 in the last mile of his 3200 running a 5:14.
Kaige Korth: Kaige in his first ever 3200 showed just how good he is finishing very close to Duncan
