@Karen, the kids were amazing. It was a privilege to catch them in action. By the way, the boys and girls also both won the 4x800m relay yesterday (delayed by weather). The did this even though the meet results were no longer in doubt. In fact the girls 4x800 barely missed state qualifying time by about one second.

Thanks again. Yes, I will circle back and get more results. Confusing how they already wrapped up the title but there are still more events to go. Weather delays!
