Greg and I traveled almost 3 hours to Ruidoso, NM to watch Brooke, who is a freshman at Volcano Vista High School, compete in her first varsity track meet. She was entered in 4 events: 4x100 relay (her team got 2nd place with a time of 53.56--not bad for a team of three freshmen and one sophomore!), the triple jump, long jump, and open 100m. She did well enough to score 4 points (and is just 1 point away from a varsity letter). Greg took some great pictures at the meet:
Brooke running the 100m. She got 9th place (out of 28 sprinters) with a time of 14.33 seconds.
She came in 5th place in the triple jump.
She was 8th out of 17 varsity long jumpers (14'10").
