Meet Recap

It was a very, very hot day at the Gainey Complex for the first Jamboree for the OK Gold Conference. The usual suspects dominated that day, with the blue wave of East Grand Rapids and Grand Rapids Christian.
We found ourselves last today, but again, by losing very close battles that were decided by seconds. I believe we can overcome our current challenges to improve.
Junior, Sarah Possett (21:57) led the way with our most recent front runner, senior, Alli Joy Matison side-lined with injury. Junior Shylin Robirds (22:07) was close behind finishing second for us, while sophomore sisters Audrey and Elizabeth Meyering held the center of our team together in third and fourth for us in 22:28 and 22:45 respectively. Finishing fifth for us was junior, Stephanie Pitsch (23:59), followed closely by junior Bree Bonnema (24:08) and freshman, Caitlyn Pranger (24:45).
The girls ran hard, but it was a tough day. Strategically, I thought they ran smart races, but it was a struggle. I do believe we will rebound, particularly as we get healthier, as a few of our top runners are dealing with injuries.
We knew going in that today would be a challenge for us, but we are staying positive and looking further down the road in our season.
Our next meet is this Saturday in Muskegon.
