SEASONS COMING TO AN END

QUOTE # 1 - The will to win means nothing without the will to prepare.  Juma Ikannga 1989 NYC Marathon winner
       
Quote # 2  - It is not what you do in practice that makes CHAMPIONS it is what you do the next 24 hours. Meb Keflezighi - 2014 Boston marathon winner

         It has been a great season thus far. Both the boys and the girls have worked so hard and by doing so you have put yourself  in the drivers seat to finish very high at state. It is crunch time. The next three weeks will determine if we are going to reach the pinnacle of achievement in our sport. We have within our grasp something that will never be forgotten and never be taken away.
       We have no control of the other teams but we have 100% control over ourselves. Do the little things outside of practice to guarantee success today. Tip - 1) SLEEP SLEEP SLEEP 2) Limit Stress 3) Ice, roll-out, stretch 4)  EAT RIGHT. If you do these things we will be champions. We control our destiny this year.

Good Job this year Go Silverwolves

BYU result click HERE
Taylorsville click HERE


We sent a few athletes to Taylorsville and to the BYU Multi event meet. There were some good performances at both meets.

It is that time of the season where a lot of people are setting Personal Bests. Our fitness level is increasing and we are getting familiar to racing.This is the time of the season were you start breaking away from your limits.

Personal Best -  From April 19 Weekend:

Every Distance runner ran a Person Record. 
Kim Adair - Set a 15 Second PR in the mile to run around a  6:05
Weston Ford - 1500M [4:54.30]
Britney Whalin - Set a Pr in the 1600 by about 6 seconds
Ammon Baker, Courtand Rausch, Duncan Forrest, Braden Robbins all PR'd in the Mile
Craig Bluth had a huge PR in the 800 running a great 2:05
Andrew Dutton, Michael McLean, Derick Smith - all ran PR's in the 800
Kirsten Spencer PR High Jump 5' 0.75"
Weston Ford PR Long Jump 20' 10"
Braden Morrill PR High Jump 5' 10" [placing third in the meet]
Heptathlon - Kirsten Spencer - 3298
Decathlon - Weston Ford - 4862

Mr. Austin Gomez ran a blazing 300m Hurdles taking 7th place and PR by about 1 second.

Mitchell Wood  PR'ED by over a foot in the Long Jump Jumping 19' 7" and took 4th overall in the meet. His PR was 18' 0" prior to this accomplishment - It was his first invitational he has been to. To score points and jump the distance he did [he recorded three jumps of 19' or better] was very impressive.

Great Job Riverton way to work hard!!!
