2015 Panther Invitational
The 2nd weekend of the season and finally a chance to see our whole team in action.
Unfortunately they were met with a cold and rainy day. Yet, even with this added challenge, some of our Senators still found a way to persevere as we had 4 athletes on the medal podium (2 of whom WON their events!) 6 new PR’s and TWO NEW SPARKMAN RECORDS!
For our Pole Vaulters, the miserable weather quickly turned any hopes of new records into a simple desire to survive the meet. Cold, wet hands made holding the pole very difficult. Some teams pulled out of the event, many could not clear a height and a few were even injured. Impressively, we took 2nd in the boys vault, WON the girls vault and had our 7th and 8th grader make new PR’s! (RESULTS HERE)
