“The Pines meet is always a great meet for us whether it is indoors or outdoors and this week was no different,” coach Kurt Cordova stated. “Our boys and girls team scored in almost every event we put them in, with many of them being top-three finishes. It was great to see four of our senior boys place first in their events as well and was a great showing for our upperclassmen.”
Cordova noted that the Lady Hatchets performed well in the relays.
“Not only in the distance, but the sprints relays as well,” he said. “They are becoming much more fluent in their handoffs, and their overall times are improving along with it.”
Athletes of the Week
Morgan Hansmann – 1st, 4x800m relay; 2nd, 4x400m relay.
“As a sophomore, this is the first year that we have been able to see Morgan compete. She has had a great season so far and has helped out our distance relays every week. Her times in all the relays have improved in every event we have her run, and this week was no different.”
Adam Hall – 1st, triple jump; 7th, high jump.
“Adam worked his way into a PR in the triple jump this week by over four feet and landed himself in 1st place. He also placed 7th in high jump scoring more points for the team. As a senior in his last year, he is proving himself as an important asset of the team. It is great to see him take a first in triple jump as he has been working at it his whole career.”
