This past week or so has been as stressful one, to say the least, for CHAP T&F. But, I think things are turning around, and one sign of that is the fantastic results posted today by the sub-varstiy runners at Ponderosa. Not only did many huge improvements occur, the athletes represented the program, the school and their community perfectly. I was very, very proud of them. It was a great day.
Her are some of the great improvements posted by the Wolverines today.
Kristin S. improved by about a second in the 100 Sprint Hurdles.
Fred C, Steven R, Kaleb R, Patrick D, Corey O, Spencer W, Eric W, Shannon H, Chels R, Rob T, Ross S and Alex M all obtained huge improvements in the mile, I was so proud of them!
Ian C, Austin S, Jackson L and Dalton M all improved in the 100 m Dash.
Jill H and Kristin S finally broke 69.00 in the 400 m, a great early season breakthrough, along with Caleb L and Devin R going sub 59.
Alex M, Jen C and Amanda C made huge strides int he shot and disc, providing a glimpse of the potential yet to come.
Mark I went sub-50 in the 300 hurdles and Dan G. went sub-56.
Whitney S. showed the world she is not just sprinter, running sub 2:41 in the 800m. Mackenzie H, Hanna B and Alleah B all got season best in that race as well.
Hanna B. also broke 30 feet in the triple jump, after a tiring 800 m race.
Dominic C went sub 11:10 in his first ever HS 3200 m race, and we had Jill H, Kristin S, Austin S, Ian C, Devin R, Mark I, Dalton M, and Jackson L all improve their 200 m times.
Overall it was a great successful day for the Wolverines, with lots of improvements in times/marks, and tons of positive energy and mojo. Let's hope this carries over to Saturday!
P.S. Today reminded me of a post I write a few years ago. Check it out here, at QUOTE DAY. I hope you find it as inspiring as I do.
