Exciting Relay Finishes

When I ran track in high school, I wished I was fast enough to run in the most exciting race of the night – the 1600-meter relay (4×400). Instead, I usually ran events like the 3200-meter relay (4×800), the 1600-meter run, and the 800-meter run. Levi, like Marsha and me, is probably more suited to be a mid-distance or distance runner, but he has been fortunate to run the third leg in the 1600-meter relay in most of the track meets this year, and his relay team has done pretty well.

He has passed at least three runners in each of his opportunities and has yet to get passed by someone else.

Below are a few of the exciting finishes to his legs in the relays.

Track and Field

This is the first track and field season for Noah (ninth grade) and Levi (eighth grade). Below are a couple of short videos capturing their events (or the finish of races). Noah has been primarily focusing on high jump, and Levi has been running the 1600-meter run, the 800-meter run, and the 4×400-meter relay.
