OKC State Meet

We woke up this morning at 5:00 a.m. to travel to OKC for the state meet. The first thing Sophie asked me when she woke up is "Why is it still dark outside?" :) Both girls decided to just focus on the 100m today and they each did great! Sadie placed 1st in her heat and 3rd overall. She ran the best she has all season and gave it her all. She was determined to leave w/ a medal and that's just what she did. Lizzy placed 1st in the Preliminaries and got a close 2nd in the Finals. You'll see in the video that it was a hair that separated Lizzy from first. The winning time was 15.53 and Lizzy's was 15.54. It was the closest race she has run all season. We ended the meet w/ a trip to Norman to eat at our favorite Gyro place, The Greek House, and got home at about 6:30 or so. Also, we found out today that there will not be a Regional Meet in St. Louis after all, because they were unable to get it organized. So, today was the end of track season and I'd say the girls went out w/ a bang!

The girls after the meet w/ their new state meet shirts on. They both say iSprint on them.
