Indoor Track Update - February 3

Darts -
Sorry I am a bit late on the indoor update this week. We were very pleased with the performances this past weekend, and we have been very pleased with your work and your attitudes this indoor season. Stay hungry and committed!

Utah Indoor Championships (Coaches Meet): It was an exciting and competitive weekend at the Olympic Oval. It took me forever to update the performance list with all of the new season bests and PRs. We are continuing to improve and continuing to show toughness and teamwork. This was the only scored meet of the indoor season - and we really dominated on the boys side. Our boys won the meet with 90.5. There was a 3 way tie for 2nd place with Syracuse, Desert Hills, and Bingham, all with 27 points. The girls went up against some very talented teams and scored 57.5 points to finish 2nd place behind Herriman (64). Syracuse girls were 3rd with 46. We are going to have some great battles with both teams this year. There were some outstanding individual performances, but we are mostly impressed with all of the PRs and the toughness that our TEAM is showing. You can see the full results at www.runnercard.com (UHSTCA Meet).

We are wrapping up a very strong indoor track season. I would just encourage each of you to dig deep in your remaining opportunities to compete. Learn from your experiences. If you are not satisfied with your performances, be determined to work hard and get stronger and faster as we move into the outdoor season.
Compete for your TEAM - I have always felt that if you compete with your TEAM in mind, you will find the motivation and the strength for that extra few seconds in a distance race, that extra few inches in a throw or a jump, and those extra tenths of seconds in a sprint or hurdle race. We are ONE big group working together for common goals - both as a TEAM and as individuals. Motivate and inspire one another and always give a little more for your TEAM. And trust your coaches! We have some of the most incredible people on our coaching staff this year, and they are working hard to help you get prepared for when it really counts. Trust them, thank them, help them, and work hard for them.  

Keep working with purpose and keep loving what you do!
Coach Talley
