Jr. Olympics UPDATE!

     First, our two ladies who competed in the Heptathlon did a fantastic job!! Olivia Leavitt (17-18 Girls) finished in 15th place with a total of 3889 Points!  It was 79 points higher than her previous Heptathlon a month ago.  Today was her 3rd Heptathlon ever.  Great job Olivia!!!  Kaylee Carter (15-16 Girls) finished in 12th place and had a HUGE second day to move up in the standings.  This was Kaylee's second ever Heptathlon and she scored 3898 points!!  Her previous best total was one month ago at the Region Meet with a total of 3323!  Kaylee PR'ed in several events!  Her biggest improvement came in the Javelin where she went from a best of 77'-10" to one month later throwing 111'-10"!!! Ya that is a 34 foot improvement!!  She finished 2nd in that event.
     I am so very proud of these fine young ladies on how well they competed under these HOT and HUMID conditions!! It was only 96 degrees with a guess of about 80% Humidity!  Ya it was miserable but they were AMAZING these last two days!!!
