Yesterday and today we had states for track and it went so well! We ended up getting 2nd in the state, out of 17 teams! That was really good for us, especially with a team of 1 senior, 1 jr., 2 seventh graders, 1 eighth grader, and 7 freshmen. We were so proud, as we definitely were not expecting to bring home a trophy (or a new banner for our gym, for that matter)! Our boys ended up with 5th, but that was still very good for them, especially being a mostly freshmen team. Nonetheless, we were all really happy and had a great time celebrating at Qdoba and Marble Slab afterwards! Other than the fact that everyone got really sunburned, it was a really fun meet and we all did amazing! It was also nice that it was close by (although a little disappointing that we didn't get to stay in a hotel... oh well, we had our own sleepover anyways.) The track was amazing... right in the city with a view of our skyline. Anyway, it was a successful weekend and we're all excited for the competition next year... we're moving up divisions...
