2010-05-10 20:30:30

i promise all yall WM will win this meet and the 4x4 just sit and watch just like they did at their division

2010-05-10 20:33:51

Supporting your team is all good but putting down another athlete isn't cool

2010-05-10 20:36:52

Wm is taking this who;e couty A meet in almost all the just watch

2010-05-10 20:42:17

2010-05-10 20:52:15

^ that would be an interesting to see

2010-05-10 21:18:39

How many events do people think olivia will be running?! at most, she'll run one open event. but people have her winning three...

2010-05-10 21:31:49

If olivia is not running the 4x8, i dont think Northwest can match wootton's girls.

2010-05-10 21:42:07

what is WM's 4x100 times this season?

2010-05-10 21:58:08

^ u will find out this Wednesday

2010-05-10 22:03:07

Just an FYI...Olivia has been selected by the United States Olympic Committee to represent the United States in the Youth Olympic Games in Singapore this August. I wouldn't be surprised if she treated counties like a work out now that she is preparing for Singapore. It is wonderful that one of our own Moco runners has now emerged onto the international scene backed by the USOC. It doesn't get any better than that:)

2010-05-11 01:34:21

Good luck to all the the teams I wish for all to have a great meet. My money is on Northwest to take all of the events that have dash or relay.

2010-05-11 07:58:13

Look out for Cory Rich for the next (3) years.SPECIAL

2010-05-21 12:40:08

let me just put this out dir... no other team is close to winning states like the Damascus team. they dont indivual runners but it takes more than person to win states. damascus got relays and feild events that other teams dont have.

2010-05-22 00:50:09

sorry bob but Damascus only made it in one field event if your talking about the boys team and only 2 of 4 relays

2010-05-22 22:43:30

I go to Damascus, and I didnt do anything in the two events I should be going to states in the field events. As for our 4x2, we all thought that we got DQed off the first handoff and Joel was standing off the track as cecil was coming in for the last hand off. As for our 4x1, well.... we only had 1 guy that was on the original relay from the beginning.

2010-09-21 19:43:02

So sad. Too bad. Maybe another year
