HARRIER REPORT #3
MEET: RED RAIDER INVITATIONAL
TEAMS PARTICIPATING: NMJC, TX TECH, RANGER, SOUTHWESTERN CC, DALLAS BAPTIST, McMURRY, PIMA CC. SPC, TX A&M KINGSVILLE, UNIV. LOUISANA MONROE, ANGELO STATE, ACU, WAYLAND, UAB, JUAREZ, AND HOWARD PAYNE.
This week’s meet had some events in which we hadn’t run yet this season. The new events for this meet were the 5,000 meters, 600-yard dash, and the 1,000-meter dash/run. NMJC had athletes in the 5,000 and the 600, as well as the 55 m., mile, 200, 400, 800, and 3,000 meter run.
The ladies have showed steady improvement over the past three weeks, as this week was no exception. We definitely competed better this week. I saw some young ladies who were challenged during their race to actually fight back and not just let people pass them. Once the ladies figure out that racing requires you to get out of your comfort zone we will see a lot of improvement.
This group of young ladies are a real joy to work with! They don’t complain about the workouts and they are always on time looking to improve themselves. We have a lot of work to do over the next three weeks to improve our overall conditioning before our next meet on 3/6 at South Plains College. This break from meets comes at the right time. We will have an opportunity to improve our weaknesses and, thus, race faster.
