D'Evelyn JV Meet - 3/27/2024

6'-0" vault

Third track meet of the year for Diya and the athletes competed on a pleasant 50 degree day under sunny skies at the D'Evelyn High School Track.

I got there early and was supposed to run the discus event which ended up being canceled.  The field was still a soggy mess.  I tried to go over to the shot put, but they had plenty of help.  Finally, I wandered over to high jump and they also had everything covered.  I then headed to the pole vault pit to enjoy the meet.

The girls and boys competed together and the opening height was 4 feet.
  • 4'-0" make
  • 4'-6" make
  • 5'-0" make
  • 5'-6" make
  • 6'-0" make
  • 6'-6" miss
I was really impressed with her form.  Among the JV girls there from four different schools, she was second place to a vaulter from Evergreen who cleared 6'-6", but missed 7'-0".  Tae's dad was there again giving pointers.

With the discus canceled, her second event was the 800 meters.  She had a clean start and came through with the middle of the pack at 1:40, before slowing down.  Her final time of 3:44 was a big improvement over her first meet when she finished in 4:08.
