This is another Spotlight update for our athletes involved in spring sports.
Freshman Lexi Hart(In The Spotlight – Alexis Hart) won the Girls Triple Jump at the 4A District 8 Track meet this past Saturday, with a school record (and 4A state leading) jump of 38’ 10 ½”.
Senior Roy Bay (In The Spotlight – Roy Bay) won the 100m and 200m Dash at the 4A District 8 Track meet this past Saturday, with a school record (and 4A state leading) 200m Time of 21.45. His 100m best this year is currently ranked 2nd in Missouri State 4A. Roy also anchored the District Champion 4 x 100m relay team.
Senior J.T. Hayes (In The Spotlight – J.T. Hayes) helped lead the Truman Baseball Team to a District victory Saturday with a 2 RBI double in a 14-2 win.
These athletes continue to demonstrate that hard work pays off!
While editing the Hang Snatch video for yesterday’s post (Supplemental Lifts – Hang Snatch) , I was hit by how many sports were represented in my sampling of raw footage. I threw together another video showing and labeling these athletes and the sport(s) they represent at our school.
In addition, two of the athletes that have been “In the Spotlight” had great weekends competing. Roy Bay (In the Spotlight- Roy Bay) won the 100m dash in a large invitational meet on Friday, and JT Hayes (In the Spotlight- JT Hayes) hit a 3 run home run in Friday’ victory.
I feel fortunate teaching and coaching at a school where all the coaches have “bought into” and believe in the benefits of the strength and conditioning program.
