Spring Break Wrapup

So much for that.  Due to thunderstorms, our spring break meet was cancelled shortly after it started.  The few people who did get to compete fared quite well, though.  Joanna Johnson won the 10k in 35:55.40  It's an extremely strong provisional qualifying mark for Nationals.  

Madeleine Schultz was second in the 400 hurdles in 1:05.0 - also a huge P.R. for her.  

Josh Gallagher and A.J. Greene placed in the Hammer with throws of 38.77 meters and 37.64 meters respectively.  

Freshmen Christine Moore, Santino Merino and Stephen Williams all competed in their first ever steeplechase.  It's exciting to have several freshmen who want to be good at the steeple.  All of them have come so far since we first started hurdling back in February.    

Fran Holoman jumped 1.40 meters and Tyler Lewis jumped 1.81 meters in the High Jump.

For the people who got to compete, the results were very promising.  Everybody else won't have to wait long for their outdoor debut.  Our next meet is this weekend at the Marv Fry Invitational.  Despite the untimely end to our meet, Spring Break was a solid trip.  It offered us a chance to get in lots of good training, and also allowed our athletes a chance to decompress after mid-terms.  In addition to lots of practice, we were able to make trips to the Aquarium, and the World of Coke, as well as spend a day in Centennial Park.
