To be honest, it was an up-and-down day for the Wolverines today. I thought we had some really great moments, and we had some moments that churned my stomach.
However, in the interest of not dwelling on what one cannot control, I want to focus on the highlights, for me at least, of today events. Let's start with the ladies.
Overall results can be found at co.milesplit.com, but watching Oliva Perry place in the 100D and the 200D was just awesome. Olivia ends her freshman year with marks of 12.99 in the 100 and 26.7 in the 200. Pretty freakin' good for a freshman!
Another freshman girl who I am very excited about is Jenna Lanskey. Jenna came in 4th today in the 300H, with a new best time of 48.53. She also placed in the long jump, jumping a hair of 16 feet. That is awesome Jenna, great job!
Keeping on the girls side, Whitney Schultz was 1/2 a second out of the money in the open 800, running a 2:23.61, which is a huge new personal best for her. Jill Hanrahan took two seconds off her 400 time, setting a new season best of 62.37 today as well. I am so excited these two girls are returning for one more year.
Janey Heard ran a great mile race today, shaving four seconds off her best time, running a 5:36 for 11th place overall, Great job Janey, and the Nyiro twins, Laura and Julia, each shaved four seconds off their two mile times, running great final races of the 2012 season. Excellent work ladies!
Finally, all three of our relay teams scored points for us over the past two days, with each of them running great team races.
Over on the field side, I know that Mia Davies came in second in the discus, throwing over 100 feet, and Jen Calscionne caem in fourth, also flinging that disc over 100 feet. 100 feet, wow. That really is amazing, I wish I could have seen that in person!
Awesome work ladies, today was a fine showing, and a perfect illustration of how hard all of you worked. Congratulations!
