Indoor Track Update - 2/8

Darts - 
We are down to the final 2 weeks of the indoor season. I hope that you are fired up to finish strong - both in the workouts and the races. The outdoor practices will officially begin on February 26th. Great job so far to all who have been participating with the indoor group, and great job with the workouts so far, those of you who are in the track class. Keep working hard, find your reason to compete and get better, and make sure you are taking care of yourselves - we want to stay healthy through May. Hydrate daily, fuel yourself with good nutrition, get the rest you need each night, warm up and cool down properly, and keep your minds and bodies healthy!! We have a great outdoor season in front of us.

Boise Indoor Meet: A small group of Darts traveled to Boise this past weekend for the New Balance Boise meet. We went up 2 years ago and ran the 4 x 800 and we may look into adding this meet into our normal rotation. It is a fast track with some pretty good competition. Our Darts competed hard and made us proud. The highlight of the meet was the 4 x 800m relays. The girls started us off with a strong first place finish in 9:28.02 - it is the #2 time in Davis school history, the #3 time in Utah state history, and the #13 time in the U.S. this year. Tatum Beard, Miah Weaver, Ally Geisler, and Josey Hedquist ran on the relay team. The girls set the right tone for our boys who raced right after. The boys ran a school record 7:49.59 (the old record was 8:01 from 2013) - and it is the 2nd fastest time in Utah history (indoor or outdoor) - the only team to ever run faster was the 1998 Bingham team who ran 7:47.88 (my little brother was on the Bingham team). It is also the fastest time in the U.S. so far this year (#2 at 7:50). Stokton killed the opening split with 1:56.9, Colter ran smart and strong with 1:59.2, Josh got after it with a 1:56.9, and Logan wrapped it up with 1:56.2. 400 meters into Logan's leg, another team was making their final exchange and didn't get off the track - Logan tried to dodge him, but had a collision that nearly caused him to completely stop - but he still managed an impressive split (most likely would have been in the 1:54.5 range). I love watching the relays because somehow athletes find a way to dig deeper for their teammates. It was definitely a TEAM effort for both the boys and the girls. 2nd place on each side was an all-star team comprised of nearly 250 athletes from 30 schools from Boise and surrounding areas.
