Indoor Track Update - BYU Invite

Darts - 

I think the only track meet longer than the BYU Indoor Invitational is the BYU Outdoor Invitational in May. Although it was a very long 2 days, we had some outstanding performances - and I hope that most of you feel it was worth the time. I was very impressed with the patience of both our athletes and especially your parents. I felt bad that it took the entire Saturday for many of you, but I was really proud of your ability to compete after waiting a really long time. Overall we saw a lot of improvement and PRs for the indoor season. I know that many of you are still not satisfied with where you are, and I hope you are determined to keep working hard to getting to where you would like to be. 

BYU Invite - We started Friday night with some solid field performances - Davis Owen finished 2nd in the long jump for the second week in a row, Sydney Larsen made the finals in the girls long jump, Dallin Baires missed finals by one place in the shot put with his 43' throw, and Jacob Moffett set a personal best in the high jump with 5'08. On Saturday, we started strong with the girls mile. 18 out of 18 girls who ran both at USU and at BYU had improvements in their times. We also set a team record with 11 girls under 5:40 (for the 1600m). Hannah Albrechtsen led the way with a 5:22 and a 3rd place finish, and Kenzie Weir, Chelsey Johnson, and Aubrey Argyle also finished in the top 10. The boys were nearly as impressive with 19 out of 23 running faster than they did at Utah State. Skylar Williams led the way with a 3rd place finish (the top runner from Utah) in a time of 4:28.70. Josh Ward also made the podium with a 4:34. We continued to show strength in the hurdles with 3 girls making the finals (Hailee Carattini, Olivia Richards, and Phebe Krutsch). Todd Froisland made the finals in the hurdles for the boys with 4 other boys just missing the finals. Carson Hunt improved his mark in the 60m Dash from last week with a 7.22 - putting him #6 on the Davis All-Time list. One of our top performances of the day was from Trevor Leavitt in the boys 400m Dash. Trevor ran 49.92 to place 2nd and break his own school record from last year. Trevor also came back strong in the 200m Dash to finish 2nd with 23.11 - a very fast time for the BYU track. Our sprinters finished the meet strong with the 4 x 1 lap relay - the girls were 3rd and the boys were 2nd - both teams running fast enough to make our all-time list. We are seeing some good things from our young (sophomore) sprinters and hurdlers as well - Emma Thatcher, Erika Stephenson, Elly Ferguson, Sydney Larsen, Griffin Hill, Jaron Erickson, Spencer Wright, Jacob Moffett, Kallin Fisher, Jason Barker, Taylor Southwick, McGyver Clark, and others are really working hard and showing some future potential to carry on our tradition. We had quite a few podium finishes from the remaining distance races. Josey Hedquist ran an indoor PR of 2:26 to place 2nd in the girls 800, and Hannah Albrechtsen earned her 2nd t-shirt of the day with 6th place finish. Logan MacKay and Colter Blanchard finished 2nd and 4th in the boys 800m - both are only sophomores - and Logan set the Davis all-time sophomore record for the indoor 800m. Our most dominant event of the day was the girls 2 mile. We had 5 girls in the race and all five girls finished in the top 7. Aubrey Argyle led the way with 2nd place in a Davis freshman record of 11:34, Kenzie Weir was 3rd, Chelsey Johnson was 5th, Ashley Tyndall was 6th, and Miah Weaver (also a freshman) finished 7th. Our freshman girls are tearing up the Davis freshman record book - Aubrey and Miah are now in our freshman top 6 for the 800, 1600, and 3200; and Ally Geisler is in the top 6 in both the 800 and 1600. The boys 2 mile was another strong event for us with 8 boys running under 11:00. Josh Ward finished 2nd in 10:08, Colton Rimann was 6th in 10:17, Kimball Potter was 7th in 10:18, and then 3 freshman (Frasier Williamson, Camren Todd, and Matt Ward) all made our freshman all-time list and all 3 ran under 10:50 in their first 2 miles. If we can continue to work for it, the future is looking good. And finally, Coach T, Caleb Ward, and I competed in the coaches mile - I just wanted to thank all of you for taking the opportunity to yell things to me that I usually enjoy yelling to you during races. It was fun to put the spikes on and get competitive. 
You can find the Davis athlete's results at the bottom of the email, and the full results are on

Monday and Tuesday - We will not have practice on Monday or Tuesday. Distance Runners should go out for a 60 minute run on Monday, and the distance runners who are able to will be meeting at the school at 1:00pm on Tuesday to go down and workout at the Olympic Oval (we will need drivers). All Sprinters, Jumpers, and Hurdlers should go out for a 2-3 mile run each day. You should also be stretching and doing core work. If our sprinters and hurdlers are serious about getting faster, you are going to need to put in a little more work to improve your fitness. Throwers should try to get to a weight room and really work arms, legs, and core. Enjoy the break from school, but use it as an opportunity to get stronger and faster. We WILL workout on Wednesday after school (not during the track class). 

Utah Distance Challenge - Friday (24th) at 5:00pm at the Olympic Oval. The events will start at 5:00 - and go in this order: 1600, 400, 800, 3200. The cost is $5.00. You are responsible for your own transportation down to the meet. I am in charge - so I will be heading down early. We would like most of our sprinters and hurdlers to come and race the 400m. You can find more information at 

Weber State Invitational - The Weber State Invite is on Friday and Saturday (24th and 25th). The field events are on Friday night. Coach Agnello, Coach Tony, and Coach Clayton will be at Weber State Friday night with the jumpers and throwers. We do not need to pre-register. Sprinters and hurdlers (and some distance runners) will be competing in the track events on Saturday. I will hand out more information at practice on Wednesday. 

Simplot (February 13-15) - I will be sending out a separate email about the Simplot Games in the next few days. I am finalizing the invite list. For those parents who would like to go to Simplot, we do not cover hotel rooms for parents. It is very difficult to find any hotel rooms in Pocatello, but if you want to make some phone calls, you can get on waiting lists, and there are often things that open up in the few weeks before the meet - you just have to keep calling and asking. The team will be staying at the Ameritel Inn. Once again, we will be able to take about 80 athletes and the cost will be $130. 

Alumni Update - Our graduates continue to make us proud. Many of them competed in the Snake River Open this weekend in Pocatello - Seth Fortin finished 3rd in the 60m Dash with 6.93 and 5th in the 200m, Kyler Sprague was 6th in the 60m Hurdles, Christine Van Brocklin was 3rd in the 60 Hurdles and 8th in the 400m, Ellie Child was 5th in mile, Shaelee Sweatfield was 8th in the 800m, and Seth Gutzwiller and Tessa Brown also competed in the open mile. A few others were in New Mexico for their season opener - Shea Martinez finished 1st in the 800m with 2:09 and Bryce Hall finished 2nd in the Weight Throw.
