Congratulations to our girl's team for their second place finish at the Cornbelt Conference Meet! This meet came down to the last events which were run last evening. We were three points shy of a very good Mahomet Seymour team. Thanks to all who made the trip ... some of you twice ... to Fairbury, IL to support our team. I was proud of the way our team competed and most importantly, conducted themselves. We received a really nice compliment from the M/S coach who called our team a "class act" and wanted me to tell the girls how she consistently told her team "to be the best, you have to go against the best" in reference to our team. Nice praise from a coach who doesn't toss out compliments to U-High very often.
We move forward to this week's Sectional Thursday night at Dunlap, IL. Meet information is below. Assignments will be made at practice ... there will still be some last minute adjustments through the week so I will not post the assignments on line. This meet usually runs at a fast pace after the finals start. Historically, it is the fastest meet of the year so be on time if you want to be sure to see your favorite athlete compete. Finally, there is no more important meet for our team on the schedule. We would love for the entire team, competing or not, to attend the meet and stay for through the end of the meet ... it is important for all team members to support teammates.
Transportation and early dismissal information will be sent out later this week.
