Lots of storm clouds in the sky, but the rain had passed and he was blessed with a dry 70 degrees.
This is a great picture by my nephew from the tower. These four guys ran just like this for most of the race.
The race really started at 500M to go. Sammy started moving and Drew responded! At the 400 they had separated from the other two and it was a 400M sprint to the finish. At the 50M mark Sammy passed Drew for the win with a 9:59.14 and Drew right behind in 9:59.88 All he needed was top 2 to make it to state and he is going. They ran a 59 second last lap!!
Wanted the win, but happy to be going to state!
Dad was in a meeting in San Francisco, eagerly awaiting news of the race! Thanks to Terry for timing so we could get splits that Dad usually does for us.
The legs that carried him through!
The hip number 16 reserved for the fastest seed in the race.
Drew and Coach Piet after a well run race and looking forward to State!
