UHSTCA Indoor Meet

This is a crazy meet for me, so I don't get to watch all of you as much as I would have liked.  I did see Sara's 1600 where she ran a good race and gave herself a chance to win her heat by running a good race and being aggressive in the right spots.

I saw Luis after his 400 when he was very happy he won his heat.  He should have, I put him in with a much too slow seed time.  His 54.99 is an indoor school record, so I'm pretty excited about that going into the outdoor season.

I was able to watch the 4 X 800 relays since things had slowed down for me at that point.  The times were a little slower than I was thinking, but I like how everyone went out aggressively on all their legs.  That slowed some of the split times because it was a little too aggressive for some of you, but that is fine because the 800 is an aggressive race and when we get a little more base and some speed work in, you will be able to maintain off that aggressive pace and drop huge PRs once we hit outdoor. I think if we can run our best group at Davis or the UHSTCA outdoor meet, we have a shot at the school record on the boys side.

I didn't see any of the boys in the 1600, but I did like the times.  Connor nearly broke 5 in his first attempt at the 16, Jonathan must have started to figure out race breathing a little, because he dropped huge time off his first two meets, and Justin ran a decent time.  Bridger amazes me with how far he has come with a decent new PR that he will crush during outdoor.

I was proud of Cali and Megan for getting their first taste of high school track in a huge meet in events where I really couldn't help them out much because of how busy I was running the meet.

Kudos to Grace for showing up and trying to compete on a day she didn't feel well and getting another volunteer to the meet. And thanks to Alan for showing up and helping out even though he missed his event.

A huge thanks to the Cobabes and to John Guldner for their assistance in running the registration areas.  That is a huge job that I didn't have to worry about on Friday while I was getting the meet set up and off and running.
