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.

We had a great time at the beach. Here are some photos we took:
First summer track meet
Andrew ran in and won the 10-and-under 800m at the McGregor summer track meet. He ran a 2:57, which is a pretty good time–especially for his first race of the year AND given the fact that he played a late baseball game the night before. Here is the video:
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.
Wow! We are 8-3!
We had a really good game tonight. We won 22-1, which brings our record to 8-3 with two games left in the season. Drew had a good game. He was 2-3 and really hit the ball well. I haven’t posted a video in a while, so here are his two hits:
2009 NCAA Track & Field Championships
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:

Update (6/14/09): I’ve posted all of the photos. The link above will get you to them.
After 9 games, we are 6-3!
We lost last Tuesday, but we won our game last night (6/9/09) 10-3. That brings our record to 6-3. We played really well as a team. We pitched well and hit better than we did in the previous game. Drew didn’t get a hit–he popped one up to the pitcher and another to second base. He’s making contact and the hits will start falling.
