The Week of Meets

Today was the 2nd meet of the week. It was a "dual" meet against West Genesee High School. Alex did something today he's never done in a meet before. He ran in 3 events. The first was the 4x800 meter relay. He ran the 3rd leg and handed off to Zavon Watkins. (above) Their relay team won the event.

His second event of the day was the 800 meter run.

He was in the lead pack for the first lap.

Then Alex and Zavon took 1st and 2nd. Not sure what happened to the other 2 guys!

Zavon was very pleased with Alex's performance! Alex got a personal best in the 800. (2:05)

Then, a last minute scratch had Alex running on the 4x400 relay team.

The 4x400 is a fast race. They each sprint once around the track. Alex was behind when he got the baton, but caught up to the guy and passed him. Liverpool ended up winning the event. And winning the meet overall. Apparently it all came down to that last relay event. Alex got (2) 1st place finishes and a 2nd place for all of his efforts today. It was a great day!
