Our first few meets always end up being a little cold with rain or there are meet difficulties usually associated with season openers. This leads to performances that are not what we are expecting, but understand due to the conditions. With our 5th meet of the season, we were fully expecting some personal records coming out of this meet; and we got them!!
The 800 meter runners again are leading the pack with times that keep going down. This is highlighted by the fact that some runners are new to this event. 400 meter runners also had fantastic times and beating their PRs by several seconds.
Still training through our meets, we had several athletes their their PRs by a large margin in events that are not their primary events. This speaks loud and clear that we are training like we should and well on a track to peak by nationals.
