The varsity girls division was particularly close. We won by only 7 points! Like we discussed at practice: Every point counts.
Here's what went down at finals:
On the frosh/soph girls side, check out the day that Sierra Babtiste had: 13.08 in the 100m (2nd), 26.62 in the 200m (1st), 16'4.75" in the long jump (1st), and a leg on the 3rd place 4x100m relay. Wow! Izzy Cherry won the 100h and took second in the 300h. Brynn Vikstrom was the high jump champ! The girls put up 173 points over second place Franklin with 105.
In the f/s boys competition, Jefferson Wright and Tomas Ferns went 1-2 in the 1600m. Tim McMahon, Beckett Dolan, and Ryan Yetman went first through third in the 800m - awesome team victory there! The boys 4x4 of Ben Tuttle, Elijah Alexander, Tim McMahon (16/8/4x4 triple), and LJ Dixon ran to emphatic victory. LJ had a great day overall. The boys won192-150 over Jesuit.
Bella Bitners is the varsity girls discus champ! The girls won the meet without any other first place finishes. We had tons of great marks though. Norah Dulaney battled St. Francis' stable of distance girls in the 1600m and 800m. The sprint relays ran great as well, a 48.91 for the 4x1. When a meet comes down to just seven points, every effort is critical. Way to go! The girls won 150 to 143 over rival Saint Francis.
Ray Ray Oldham scored 35 points, including first place finishes in the long jump, high jump, and 200m. Awesome. Jake Schaal, Clay Ballard, Bryce Barker, and Lucas Tam finished off the last race of the day with a victory in te 4x400m relay. Lucas Tam deserves a shot out for the very challenging 16/8/4x4 triple. The boys won 215 to 135 over second place Jesuit.
