b. Crystal (probably would not have guessed that)

c. Mrs. Pip (appears to be trying to lift up the tree behind her)

Williamston Invitational Recap

The 32nd annual Williamston Invitational took place earlier today. This is a big meet for Bishop Foley's track team - as it is a final tune-up before the Regional meet. As usual, the Champions Club athletes (and future commits) ran very well. Here's how it went down.

On the boys side of things, Craigen Oster continued his pr streak in the mile with a 4:53. Don't look now, but we might have a state qualifier on our hands.

SCLB also pr'd in the 400 - running a 56.9.

On the girls side, Mackenzie Horwath ran a solid 100m and 200m in 14.44 and 29.87 respectively. She also ran a good third leg in the 4x100m relay team that took 6th place.

Emma Wonsil ran anchor in the aforementioned 4x1 relay. She also ran a 1:03.96 in the 400m open. That was good for 4th place and also it is nearly two seconds ahead of where she was last year at the meet. Still mediocre though!

New Champions Club member Caitlyn Uebbing came in 11th place in the shot put with a 26-3 throw.

Marian Catalan pulled out a impressive 2:31 800m time -good for fourth overall.

Nicole Murley ran her best meet of the season. Doubling up with the mile and two mile, she managed to pr in both. She ran a 5:56 mile - good for a 7 second pr and 11th place. Shortly after, she finished the two mile run in 13:18 - shaving 12 seconds off her previous best and finished in 7th place.

Alyssa Brozek competed in the 100m, 200m, and 4x1 and ran pretty well in each event. Her 100m time was 14.37 and her 200m was 30.33.

Finally, the state-contending girls 4x400 relay team consisting of Emma, Marian, Mackenzie, and Sydni Golfin were disqualified after a questionable false start. While this is a temporary disappointment, imagine how good it's going to feel when they come back this Friday and tear up the track at Regionals.

Be ready!

Calling All Mommies!

Send in your retro pictures (preferably in color - no painted portraits please). We're going to have a challenge posted on the site and we need them. As with all other good ideas around here, the young lady pictured below is responsible for this one.

Beast Mode - GA Gang

First day doing box jumps with strict form standards and sumo deadlift high pulls. How are they lookin?

Don't worry! All of them are registered so it's safe for them to work out now.

Beast Mode: Christina

This has to be one of the coolest stories I have heard.

The annual Senior banquet on Sunday was all set for another year of redundancy, tardiness, and boredom. However, the crowd was greeted with an unusual suprise, and Champions Club veteran Christina Powers was in the middle of it all.

At the beginning of the banquet, one of the administrators informed everyone that there would be a new scholarship called the "Make a Difference" award funded by a local business. When the two owners of the business were called up to the front, Christina noticed them as her bosses.

According to them, Christina's love for foley, dedication, and work ethic made them want to give her the scholarship, and continue on the legacy every year. In the midst of the chaos and bliss, I managed to reach Christina for comments later in the day.

"I like freaked out," said Christina via text message. "I feel so cool."

And rightfully so. This is quite an honor, and the entire Champions Club is proud of you. Hopefully, that scholarship will be going to a local school so you can still work out with us.

Congradulations. I see you kid!
