Katie's track season comes to an end

Katie competed in the Frosh/Soph League Finals on Monday. Her relay team, shown below, came in 4th overall at the meet. She got 5th place in high jump. She got 3rd in 300m hurdles. In 100m hurdles, her best event (and she says by far her favorite), she came in first place--League Champion--and set a meet record of 17.42 seconds. Rich missed this race because of a work meeting. It was such a great race to watch! She had hit her head on the standard in her first jump in high jump, so she was shaky and had a big bump. It was a hot day, and I was worried that she wouldn't have her best race. However, she came out ahead and stayed there the whole time. What a great finish to a fun season! Here are some pictures from the year. (Katie wants me to point out that the hurdles pictures are from early in the season and that her form is much better now!)

Congrats to your daughter!!! And you, you probably had to do some driving!:) It's fun to see your children develop skills and talents!

Congratulations Katie. I don't run and jump over things unless I'm being chased. Not many things scare me enough to run anyway.

P.S. I will admit to never, ever wanting to run hurdles in my life. I do that enough in motherhood :) I admire anyone who take son that challenge and conquers the fear.
