Off to a Good Start!

The high school girls held Time Trials this past Saturday (8/11). It was a success! In fact, almost all times were faster than last year’s meet!

Time Trials allowed everyone to get the chance to see (or remind themselves) how a high school meet works and the order of events. This practice run is important because in high school there is no clerk-of-course, no numbers on the hand, and no one making sure you make your events.

Meet Highlights
We try to post a meet recap for most meets. As part of the article, we post meet highlights showcasing some races from the meet. While we can’t recognize everyone every time, we do try to get a mix of events and JV/Varsity.
