Summer track update

Drew lowered his time in the 800m by about 8 seconds down to 2:49.47 and he did it in 100+ degree heat!  He placed 3rd, but was very close to 1st and 2nd.  I think he can beat them at regionals.

YES! We beat the other McGregor team to move to 9-3!

We won a hard fought, come-from-behind victory over the other McGregor team tonight 12-11.  The team played great.  Unfortunately, about half the opposing kids refused to shake our kids’ hands.  Coach and parents: if you are reading this you need to foster better sportsmanship in your kids.  That’s one of the lessons they need to learn at this age.

How cool is this?  We ran into Jeremy Wariner by the pool at our hotel.  We interrupted his dinner of Chick-fil-A to get a picture.  He was super nice.  I’ll post more pics of the meet later, but I just had to get this out on the website.

Here is the photo album.  I’ll be adding more after today’s races:
