This was my first track meet ever. It was long, but fun. We were there for three hours. There was some confusion among the coaches as to what event was taking place when.
The boy was scheduled to do the 200 meter hurdles and the 800 meter race. Then he got changed to the 1600 meter race, which is a mile. He didn't look thrilled. But....he didn't quit, and he wasn't in the last group.
The coaches thought his 2 regular events were going to be back to back, but they weren't. Hopefully this can be remedied by the meet next week. Finally after hours of everything else, came the 200 meter hurdles.
I was quite stoked to see this, until a girl bit it badly and fell face first onto her right elbow. Then my nerves were shot people. Thankfully no boys were injured during their heats. Levi did a great job! I still can't believe he can do this.
I love sports like track and wrestling because it is all on the athlete. If they do badly it is their own fault, they don't have a team to help them out. Can you believe how high these kids are jumping? (there were 4 middle schools at this meet, the other ones were at another school-we can't have them all together at one time-next week, Mooresville)
