Just thought I would try this whole blog thing since Barney is awesome (HIMYM), I want to be awesome! I figured I could provide some good insight of my days as cross country/track coach at SHS. Plus this is a great way to put my thoughts down...good and bad. Hope I can help someone to get faster or something....go Sailors!
Just an update on how the XC finished up. The girl's team finished 7th place at regionals...only 17 points from qualifiying for states. This is the third year in a row the girl's went to regionals. Previous years, before my time as coach, they never went out of districts. We did have a girl finish in the top 15 at regionals, therefore she moved on to states. Megan finished 5th at regionals with 19:44 over the 5k course. She ran awesome! She finished 37th at states with 19:57 which was over 30 seconds faster on the same course in October. Very proud of her and how she finished her high school XC career.
The boys took 2nd place at districts and regionals; therefore they moved on to states. Going into states the boys were ranked 13th in the state. They took 10th place at states in class 3A, which is phenomenal!! They kept on getting faster each race. Can't ask for more than that! Congratulations on a great season boys and girls!
