Track season

Our last month of school passed with a flurry of activity and now I have a lot of blogging to catch up on! 

Abby started track this year, and because it overlapped with basketball she only had a few meets. That was long enough for her to LOVE it, and she really had a successful short season.

Her events were 100 M and 200/300 M hurdles, 4 x 100 M Relay, 4 x 400 M Relay, and Long Jump, which she swapped for the 200 M dash when she realized it was a great event for her. 

After she fell in her first ever hurdles race on our cinder track and sported some pretty good road rash, I was a nervous wreck every time I watched her run hurdles. She has great form though and didn't have any more falls. 

A highlight for me at the District Track Meet was her 200 M second place finish right behind 8th grade powerhouse Leah.

The girls team finished 2nd in their district. (In Junior High they don't advance beyond District.) Abby placed in all of her events and was the 2nd highest point earner, as a sixth grader competing against 7th and 8th graders. She should have a good career ahead of her!

I had fun watching these boys also. They put in so much effort and finished strong in 3rd place.

Abby finished her season beating 2 school records—one in the 4 x 400 M relay and one in the 200 M hurdles. We are so proud of you, Abby!
