Meet 4

April 30th, 2014              

    For the first time Tyler was allowed to compete in the high jump in today's track meet. Although he hadn't practiced it in quite some time (the high jump coach hasn't been at practice), he did decent in the event. He managed to clear 5' before his fellow freshman, but neither of them could clear 5'-2", the next height. Tyler came away from the high jump with a bit of a limp, and he wasn't sure he would be able to continue on, but he managed to make it back in time for one of the last events of the night, the 4x400m relay. By this time, darkness had set in, along with a torrential downpour that made running difficult. He and his team pushed through, however, and represented themselves quite well.

Another attempt at clearing the bar at this height.

Tyler appears to have pretty decent form, but hasn't been able to practice much due to the absence of the coach for this event.

Once again he knocked down the bar at this height.

Later in the meet, Tyler had to run his 4x400 relay race in a torrential downpour.

Tyler was doing good going into the turns.

By the final straightaway, Tyler was feeling the effects of the rain.

He kept going strong, however.
