State Track Meet pt. 2 - State Champions!

At Monday night's practice we found out the team won the State Championship and the coaches passed out the ribbons. These are a few shots from the meet "aftermath". Yeshi put on his superman jammies over his track shorts - the ladies thought this was cool.

This is our setup at the meet. It's a long day (in this case weekend - the meet started Friday and ended Sunday) so everyone just camps out. Those are my feet on the cooler and that's Yeshi's practice discus. It was in the mid-90's and humid. You have to shift your chair around as the day wears on to stay in the shade. Danny was out in the sun all day. He volunteered to help with discus so he just got a break for lunch and that was it.

And this is hauling all the stuff back to the car...then a 3 hour drive home. Quite a difference from football season when we spent a mere 2 or 3 hours at the field!

South Carolina State Track Meet pt. 1

Here's Yeshi and his buddy Liam running the 1500. Yeshi did great, knocked 20 seconds off his time and got a 5:42. 
He placed 7th in discus....only the top 5 advance to regionals however, one of the kids has dropped out and if one more drops he will get to go. His technique is looking really good and he's really added some distance in the past two weeks. We got him a discus to practice with at home (track practice is 3 times a week) and he's been out there every day working on it. 

Here he is with some of his buddies in the  Mount Pleasant Track Club.
