All Conference and Senior night!!!

Today was our Mid-State All Conference at our home course along with Senior night. The conditions were perfect today and our team was excited to be celebrating our seniors after the meet and everyone was quite relaxed pre-race.

I had a great race and a new PR of 20:20 dropping almost 13 seconds from last weeks PR on our home course (20:31) which has always been slow for me.  My previous best course time was 21:34 from last years All Conference race and so I was very excited to have dropped 1:34. I came in 4th overall and was happy to be the 2nd DSA girl back, our fast freshman came in 1st and 2 Carrboro girls followed behind her . I was really happy with the outcome, and I really enjoyed my race!  Our girls team came 2nd overall for All Conference and our boys won which was great. As a team we won the Sportsmanship award for both girls and boys, so that was nice and pretty much sums us up as a team. It’s been a great season for our team and hopefully will continue next Saturday at regionals and moving forward to States.

I was so pleased to be an All Conference winner for the 3rd consecutive year.

Senior night was a lot fun; we had dinner prepared for us my some great parents- gluten free options galore with the tacos and chicken fillings. We listened to speeches, retold stories of our four years running together, watched the slide show of hundreds of photos which parents had taken over the years, and gave out various gifts. It was a great end to our regular season and my senior year running at DSA.

We are looking forward to regionals next Saturday and as a girls team are up to the challenge of chasing the few points that we are behind on the virtual meets set by NC Milesplit.
