So, as I've spent the last two days watching football, I can't help but to think about how these games have parraleled the start of the 2011 season for the coaches.   Some performances have not gone as expected, we've had a few surprises, and lots of moments have brought the coaches to their feet to cheer.

The JV meet started our season, where we got to see who trained over break and who ate too many snickerdoodles (Coach Jaime's favorite cookie).  The Varsity meet Friday night was awesome, as Devin Repp, Eric Martel, Jason Hill, and Tessa Wiles came through in big ways.

Devin broke his own school record by running 37.55 in the 300.  Then, later in the night, he moved into third place in school history in the 500.  Just for fun, to cap off the night, Devin placed for the team in the 800.   A mile of racing over the course of the night that added up to three scoring performances for the team.

Jason Hill was the MVAL runner up in both the 800 and 1600.

Eric Martel moved into second in school history with his performance in the shot put, and placed 3rd in the meet.

On the girls side, Tessa Wiles placed 4th in the shot put with a  personal best throw.

We're hitting our stride at the right time with less than a month until the Regional meet.   How low will our times fall?  How far with the shots fly?  How high will our jumpers soar?   Stay tuned Blazer fans....
