The Faith Track & Field teams were in action twice last week, in a dual meet at Harrison on Thursday, followed by the seven team Argyll Relays at Madison-Grant on Friday night.
The boys and girls teams both fell to Harrison. However, both teams had great performances. All four boys’ team members set PRs at Harrison: Keontae Henderson in the High Jump, Isaac Neyhard and Landon Gustin in the throwing events, and Josh Kolle in the 400. Josh won his event.
The girls’ team lost 83 to 39, a great result considering the girls team was outnumbered approximately 5 to 1. Highlights from the girls competition included:
– Kelly Valle running a SB in the 800, anchoring a 3,200 meter relay win, and closing out the 1,600 meter relay team with our second best time of the season.
– Amara Brenton ran her first 300h race of the season and scored points for us in second place, while running a time THAT WOULD HAVE WON EVERY OTHER 300h race we have had this year. Amara also had a heavy workload tonight, and ran a great leadoff 4*800 leg that set us up for the win.
– Alli Holder PR’d in the 400 while winning the race (1:08:04)
– Adalyn Nelson PRd in the 400.
– Faith Dixon and Kirsten South went 1-2 in the 1,600, with Kirsten running a nice PR. Krista Valle also ran a PR in the 1,600.
On Friday night, the Eagles traveled to Madison-Grant to compete in the Argyll Relays.
Running on tired legs (from the competition at Harrison the night before), both teams had impressive performances.
– The boys team finished 6th out of 7 teams, scoring a season high 28 points. ALL FOUR boys scored, highlighted by PRs by Keontae Henderson in the HJ and Landon Gustin in the shot put.
– Keontae scored a boys team high of 11.5 points, followed by Josh with 5.5 points.
– The girls team finished 4th of 7 teams, scoring 46 points. This was a great team effort!
– Alli Holder led the girls team in scoring with 12.5 points, followed by Amara Brenton and Kelly Valle with 5.5 point each.
– The girls team posted some great times in the relays last night (likely setting a few school records)…I’d also like to highlight a school record (and PR) run by Amara in the 100 hurdles.
– The girls team dominated in a win in the DMR (distance medley relay).
– Faith boys and girls took second in both of the Co-ed races of the evening, including the 2,400 and 800 meter relays
