In the discus, Tazio barely missed qualifying for state. He finished 4th with a mark of 151'5".
In the high jump, Mimi (5'1") also finished 4th, barely missing state qualification. Congratulations to her high jump teammate Hannah Lybbert, who jumped 5'3", finishing 2nd and qualifying for the State Meet.
Ben Easton and Aaron Moore finished up their terrific DHS careers in the triple jump. Ben jumped 40'7.5" and Aaron, 40'1". Congrats to both guys.
Congratulations to Alyssa Lengtat and Tessa Malone, who, once again, qualified for the State Meet in the triple jump. Alyssa won the competition with a jump of 38'11.5. Tessa finished 3rd, going 38'4.25. In the same competition, Abby Lo finished 9th with a season best 36'3.5; and Annie Cui finished 10th, jumping 35'9.5". Once again, the support these four show each other is inspirational.
In the laned races, the girls 4x1 - Julia, Tessa, Paige, and Brooke - rebroke their own record, running the fastest time of the day: 47.47.
In the 100m dash, Brooke Rubinstein finished 6th, also qualifying for finals.
In the girls long jump, Alyssa made the final and finished the competition in 9th. Time to focus on the triple jump! Tessa took her first two jumps, then decided to stop so she could feel good for the upcoming 4x1 final.
Speaking of the relay... Julia, Tessa, Paige, and Brooke re-broke their own school record (again), running 47.39. This time was good for a first place overall finish. On a personal note, it's incredible to watch these four gain confidence and experience with each race. So proud!
Congratulations to Olivia O'keeffe who ran a season best 4:54.74 to finish 2nd in the 1600m. Olivia is looking great - Can't wait to see what happens next week. Abbey Fisk finished 12th in the same race: 5:13.23.
In the 100m dash, Brooke Rubinstein finished 4th in 12.29, only thee one-hundredths out of 3rd! Time to focus on the relay!
Congratulations to Emily Meyer, who went 11'4" to finish third in the pole vault and quaify for the State Meet. Kate Miller cleared the intimidating 10'1" opening height. For Kyra, the 10'1" height was bit beyond her pr. Congrats to Kyra and Kate on a great season.
We are very proud of seniors Sofia Castiglioni and Abbey Fisk who wrapped up their incredible DHS track careers in the 3200m. Sofia finished 4th and ran a huge pr: 10:36.34. Frustratingly, her time was only a second off of the at-large. Abbey doubled back from the 1600m, running 11:37.16. Sophie Lodigiani finished 6th with an excellent time of 10:56.94, very close to her pr.
Michael Vernau had another great day, qualifying for State in both the 1600m (4:13.16) and 3200m (9:11.58). Can't wait to see what Michael does in the 3200 next week!
It was a great Day - The coaches are very proud of this group. Thanks to all who came out to support!
