After the long drive on Thursday morning to get to Denton I felt we had one of our best overall performances of the year! Most of the young ladies ran a personal best time in at least one of their events. You always want to end a season running a P.R. and that's what most of these ladies did.
Being a twilight meet we got to run under the lights of the stadium, which always gets an athlete a little more excited to perform. The meet was great for us because we competed in heats that were set up based on entry times. This allowed us to be very competitive within our specific heat.

We also ended the season running both a 4 x 100 relay and a 4 x 400 relay, which was exciting. In the 4 x 100 we were .75 seconds from qualifying for the National meet. Our hand offs were good and we competed well, yet we came up just a little short. This (the sprints) is an area in which we look to improve next year.

This was a great year! These young ladies were fantastic to work with because they never complained and always did what was asked and more.
