NMJC INDOOR TRACK
HARRIER REPORT #2
MEET: Texas Tech Red Raider Classic & Masters Invitational
TEAMS PARTICIPATING: NMJC, TTU, NMSU, UNM, SWT, WAYLAND, SPC, TX SOUTHERN, McMURRY, DALLAS BAPTIST, ACU, TX A&M KINGSVILLE, UT SAN ANTONIO, AND SEVERAL TRACK CLUBS.
The Lady T-Birds competed in their second indoor meet of the season. We improved our times in almost all of our events. As this season began I knew we were looking at the indoor season as a chance to race ourselves into shape and get ready for the outdoor season. After our next meet we will have a nice break from racing and be able to spend about a month training and working on the areas in which we are weak.
This year’s meet was loaded with quality Division I and Division II athletes and a lot of schools. It was really difficult for the girls NOT to be intimidated. After the first race of the day the ladies settled down a bit and performed better than last week. I think we are finally realizing that for us to be more competitive it takes a serious year round commitment and patience. Top-notch track athletes don’t develop overnight; it may take years of dedication to the sport and finding the event in which they are most suited.
Our next meet is 2/7/04. We will be back in Lubbock for the Texas Tech Red Raider Invitational. We will get a chance to compete in some different events like the 600-yard dash and the 1,000-meter run.
