Heading back to Tupelo tomorrow for the regional track meet (6A). Our distance runners all qualified at the district meet. Now, it starts getting much more difficult to advance. Joseph has had a somewhat hard time the last week because he was sick with an upper respiratory infection (which I also got, from him). He is not 100% right now, but hopefully he can get through tomorrow. He will be running in the 3200m and 1600m races. Damian Grady will also be running the 3200m for us. Kamau Bostic will run the 1600m, 800m, and the 4 X 400m relay. On the girls side, Walker Mattox will run in the 3200m, 1600m, and 800m races, all of which she won at the district meet. Abigail Arinder will run in the 3200m race, and Mary Elizabeth Stringer will run the 1600m and 800m races. Good luck guys!!!!
We did not get to run together as much as possible this last week because of the bad weather, but hopefully things will get back on track this week. Unfortunately, the weather forecast for Monday and Tuesday has rain in the forecast. AHHHHHH! However, Sunday afternoon is looking good, and we will be running at the MSU North Farm at 5 PM. The rest of the week is up in the air right now!
