This was our first time going to the Rocket Invitational. It was a great introduction to the competitive season for many of our girls.
Individual event champions were:
Abby Olson (11) in the mile
Natalie Blake (9) in the 800.
The 4×100 Relay team of Ana Beach (9), Emily Laird (10), Rickia Greenwood (10) and Lauren Coppersmith (10) placed 2nd overall, narrowly missing out on first place to Hudsonville’s relay.
Other medalists were:
Ana Beach (9)- 2nd in the 100m dash, 2nd in Long Jump and 2nd in the 200m dash.
Lauren Coppersmith (10)- 5th in the 100m dash.
Abby Olson (11)- 2nd in the 3200m run.
Rickia Greenwood (10)- 3rd in the long jump.
Jasmine Correa (10)- 3rd in the shot put and discus.
Many other girls were trying out their events for the first time this season or for the first time ever, and I appreciate their courage and willingness to step up and compete.
Come out and support the team as we travel to face Grandville on Monday!
