Meet Recap

Going into the meet we were 7-0 and Ithaca 6-1. League rules state that we needed to win the meet in order to win the championship outright. Even though we beat Ithaca head to head earlier in the season, we knew they were a better team in an invitaional as two of them that we were in with them this year they outscored us by 11 and 15. Scoring the League meet according to the seedings beforehand we were behind by 24, so a lot of things had to happen for us to make up that ground and we lacked 1 point in doing that to be able to be Conference Champs.

I cannot fault my team at all. I am an incredibly proud coach for what they tried to pull off in the situation we were in and the weather conditions (windy and rain at times). I am just so disappointed for them, especially my seniors. I never thought at season start that we even had a chance to be in this situation until we beat the Ithaca in mid April in a dual competition. They had won the League the 4 previous years. I had a lot of kids step up in their events each time to improve and stay competitive. The team grew together and the older kids helped the younger kids stay focused to try and acheive their goals as an individual and as a team.
