In life we get better by learning from our mistakes. In track & field, throwing is not all about throwing hard and running isn't always about running fast. There is technique and strategy that you have to master to be the best.
This start with practice and how we perform in practice. If you don't take practice seriously and 'master' your event, lots of mistakes will be made in competition.
Its only the second meet and the temperatures plummeted when the sun went down, but we still had a decent meet. Still lots of room for improvement, but it is early. Some of the mistakes made was because of a lack of focus. We will continue to work on this in practice so it becomes automatic in competition.
Because of weather and other technical difficulties at the meet, not everyone performed this week. Check out our pictures HERE of those that did get to perform.
