Meet Report #3 Hobart December 28, 2015

Two First Place Finishes, 4 Qualifiers , 18 PR's

Lets do the math...

Who would like to help me with a little math problem?
2 + 4 + 18 = ?
24, right?


Those numbers represent our individual accomplishments at Hobart on December 28. Together they add up to a fantastic BK Track Team!

We are in a good position with the varsity team is approaching the midpoint of the season and the modified championships are just a few weeks away. Back in November, at the start of our practices, it  became obvious that we were going to have a good team this year. You're coaches could clearly see the dedication and effort that each person was putting into practice. There was a lot of learning taking place, too. Those early weeks of practice were not easy. In fact, the first two weeks were designed to challenge you; to get you ready to do exactly what you are doing now...

Achieving your goals!

Our team performance continues to improve at each meet with more people running personal records and/or qualifying for sectionals. These are all good things, but there is more to do! As we've said at the beginning of each meet "You have nothing to prove and everything to improve"  - thats what is expected of each of you. And you continue to live up to that expectation. Remember that improving is not always about a personal best time of winning an event. Improving is measured in any positive change, however small, that leads you to becoming the student athlete you want to be.

A week of Champions

We finished this meet with two champions; two first place finishers in their individual events.
Senior (and defending Class D Shot Put Champion) Chris Jackson won the shot put.
