Week 14

What a great treat to have our invitational on a night with the best weather yet this outdoor season!

Full results can be found at https://www.athletic.net/TrackAndField/meet/339401/results

We had so many compliments about the meet from the visiting teams. We couldn't have done it without all of the girls and parents' help! You all made such a difference in so many people's lives on Friday from  hurdle help  (special shout out to my hurdle helpers- you set such a high bar for years to come with your efficiency and toughness!), to block moving (sister power!), to running results to the press box and posting results, to being in charge of Coach Hartmann (thanks, Maddie!).


Congratulations to those who scored points for the team!
