Wednesday, June 8, 2016 - Heptathlon Day 2 Results

Day 2 events (Javelin, Long Jump and 800) promised some excitement for our athletes, Ally, Dorothy and Samantha, and they delivered.  Over the years the events which I have had the least involvement are the jumps.  I was therefore tremendously relieved when each of the girls had jumps measured after some anxiety (on my part) in finding good marks.  Nine total jumps, two questionable fouls - good results.  In the Javelin, Samantha had her best throw of the year and the Freshmen came up big as well in an event in which neither had meet experience.  Dorothy and Ally (not just sprinters) exceeded their own expectations in the 800.  And, as you'd expect in a multis meet, Samantha beat the competition in the 800 by 20 seconds in her final WHRHS race!
