Then on Friday the rest of us went to Bismarck to see how we match up against the west side of the state, and I'd say that we did pretty good! Top 20 for the varsity races got shirts and top 15 for the middles school races also got shirt. We cam home with 11 shirts!! But not only did we come home with shirts, but we also came home with a bunch of PR's. Our Varsity girls also came home with another team win, which was exciting because we were competing against teams we haven't raced against since state last year. We gave the "sword" for this meet to Autumn C, for having a huge PR, even while running with an IT injury!! Overall I was very proud of how well everyone performed at both of these meet last week.
This week, the weather was much cooler and we were even able to run with long sleeves some of the days! After a week filled with school, long runs and two speed workouts, we have our pre state meet at our very own course, of Lincoln Park Drive. It was a little hectic with all the teams, buses and the potato bowl parade (in which several of us had to march in before our races) but with everything going on we still put on a good performance for our family and friends. Our middle school girls did very well placing 3 in the top 20, plus some huge PRs including Tabitha T, Silje K, Nora B and Sophia R just to name a few! Our JV girl also gave a great performance placing 3 in the top 20 (Mikayla 3rd, Aislinn 10th an Valerie 14th) as well as placing second overall as a team! Lastly our Varsity girls were able to capture another win, with placing 5 runners in the top 25 (Karly 1st, Alexis 5th, Rachel T 7th, me 15th and Maggie 24th)!! Then we ended the day as a team going out for ihop after the meet. To wrap it all up, it was a good day and I couldn't asked for a better team to be a part of!!
