The team after the District 6 Track and Field Championships.

Districts 6 Championships Recap

First off, I want to apologize that this is the first recap I have done this season. I will try to be better in the future. The efforts of the last two days warranted a little more detail than we had in the CDT. The biggest takeaway from the meet for me was the way we battled to the end and overcame adversity to have historic performances.

On Tuesday, we kicked off the meet with the boys 4x800m relay. Going in we knew it would be tight race, but were confident that we could score high given that fact we had beaten all the other teams before. Mikey lead us off and got caught in a box over the first lap. He was able to make a strong move over the last 100m to put us into 7th place. Eli took off and launched us into 3rd place. He maintained his positioning over the two laps and handed off to Michael with a 15m lead on 4th. Michael got out well, but the other teams were charging. With 250 to go, Purchase Line caught him and he wasn’t able to respond. They opened up a 15m gap on him over the last 200m. Brian went after them, but it was too much ground to make up and we finished 4th, the toughest spot to be in since the top 3 made states. After event 1, we were not off to the start we hoped but regrouped and got ready for the rest of the day.

CDT West Central Coaches Recap

From the Centre Daily Times:

Brian Hackman didn’t care about track and field.

He was lost in the shuffle at State College Area High School the previous two years, and he had no motivation to get better. But he’s rediscovered his work ethic and passion for the sport since transferring to the smaller St. Joseph’s Catholic Academy.
