Meet 4

May 8th, 2014              

    Track and field meets are a very difficult sporting event to sit through. Today Samantha ran one of the early races in the meet, and then she ran in the last race of the day. This leads to a lot of down time during an event that lasts nearly 3 1/2 hours! Needless to say, Sam's team did pretty well overall. They handily beat the team from Swartz Creek, but lost to the Grand Blanc East team. I would say some events were pretty competitive, but others were not even close. In those races there tended to be a sizable gap from Grand Blanc to Holly, and from Holly to Swartz Creek. Sa did well in her two races today (the 4x200m relay and the 4x100m relay), but her team faltered in both races, as they settled for third and second, respectively.
