Final track update....

The State track meet is over and here are where things stand....
Hayden competed in the 4x800 on Friday and his relay team took 7th in the state in this event.
On Saturday he competed in the 1 mile and took 11th place with a time of 4:42 which is 12 seconds faster then he has ever run it.
After that he ran the 800 ...there were two heats. in his heat he took 4th but the 2nd heat blew out the first heat and all 9 guys were faster then the fastest 2nd heat guy(still following along? LOL)..so Hayden ended up with 13th place in the 800. His time was 2:07. We were hoping that he could have taken a few seconds off his best time of 2:06 but it still would not have mattered because everyone in the 2nd heat did it in 2:00 or less.
Still not too shabby for a kid who just started running in February of this year.
and even though it was 11th and 13th....it was 11th and 13th overall at STATE!
The big news came at the end of the meet when they announced the overall 3A Boys and 3A Girls State Championship teams.....
Blue Ridge Swept it with both our boys and girls taking state!
WAY TO GO BR!


Running the mile....
Team Champ trophies!

Finally....after 4 years and several sports, he proudly holds a State Championship trophy!
He has worked hard to have this in his hands....
Nothing like a last minute win to finally clinch a State Championship!


ohhh, and winning comes with benefits! lol

That is so awesome! Those are excellent times, a mile in less than 5 minutes?? That is just amazing. Good job Hayden. I hope you guys didn't die of the heat. I was in Pinetop for Lee's wedding. I dropped a gift off for Brittnee on your doorstep. Did you see it?
