Meet Report #2: Brockport December 18, 2015

Seven BK athletes continue to improve at Brockport 

Now you know what you are capable of


You were challenged to improve and you did. The results of this meet prove that what we are doing is working and your discipline and sweat in practice is paying off. Your coaches aren't looking for a team full of first place finishers. Winning is simply a "pleasant by-product" of what we're working toward. Remember, you have nothing to prove but everything to improve.

And you're doing it!

And we'll keep doing it. We're heading into the Holiday break period and will have some time off from structured practice. The holidays are a time to recover from all the training you've been doing but it is vital that you continue to do your own individual workouts. Remember we have two meets during the break - we need to recover yet be ready to compete. More on that later. The point is that we are well on the way to establishing a championship season, one worthy of recognition. We still have a lot of work ahead of us.

How did we do overall?
We had nine families join us at the meet! We can't say "thank you" enough for the parental support. We had one automatic varsity sectional qualifier (Chris, shot put) and five more provisional sectional qualifiers. 22 of our athletes had Personal Records set at this meet with 19 of those finishing in the top 10 in their event.

Our modified team recorded three first place finishes! Jenna  (mod 1000m), Jahlique (mod 55m) and Evan (mod 600m) in his first competition.

These numbers are certainly promising and something to be excited about. But whats more exciting is all the little details improving along the way to reach these outcomes. You're all maturing (almost daily) in the art of track and field. You're all growing (quite quickly) as athletes, too.

Now you know what you're capable of. Now we all know what this team is capable of.

"Winning on the professional level is required. Winning on the collegiate level has become expected. Winning on the high school level should be a pleasant by-product to what you're really supposed to be doing, which is developing young people into productive citizens."
