The Taylorsville Invitational was full of aches, pains, rearranging and WIND! However, despite it all, the Girl’s teams performed very well. The Girls scored 88 points and took 2nd place in the meet.
The hurdles started off the meet very well. Both Shambrea Ogden (18.19) and Halle Day (19.93) ran season PR’s in the 100M hurdles. The 300M Hurdles was a solid race despite the blistering wind. Shambrea (48.43) and Gwyn (48.86) finished second and third overall.
The 4X100M relay team qualified for State this weekend after just barely missing the mark by 0.01 seconds. We rearranged the order and it seemed to be just the ticket. The relay team crossed the line a full 1.5 seconds faster than the second place team. Their finishing time was 50.45.
The 400M was a solid race for all the girls. Rylee Wood finished in 1:02.90, putting her 5th place overall. Kate Hyatt and Cassidy McDougal both PR’ed, running times of 1:07.59 and 1:08.36.
The medley team of Cassidy McDougal, Alyssa Sinks, Kate Hyatt, and Zoe Bartlome ran a great race and finished with a time of 4:41.23. They took second place overall.
The 200M came around and the girls had a serious head wind! Kenzie McCombs ran a season PR 27.41, taking second place in the meet.
Because of a few injuries and schedule conflicts, we found ourselves one girl short for the 4X400. Fortunately, Katie Christopherson stepped up and ran an awesome leg! The relay team of Shambrea Ogden, Haylee Mather, Katie Christopherson, & Rylee Wood won the race with a time of 4:09.21. They missed the State qualifying mark by 1.5 seconds. The girls gave it everything they had; it was an awesome race to watch. They plan on getting their revenge at next week’s meet at Copper Hills.
