But, good memories!
I was on the wrestling team in HS and I dunked in a inter-squad game - good times. I could still dunk a volleyball last time I tried (about 3 years ago).

Last thing I dunked was my wallet a couple of years ago. I could just get it over the rim. I'm still hurting from the event. Oh, that may just be from getting up this morning.

Good memories, indeed.

Just returned from the end-o-season awards banquet (even though Sectionals will run this weekend). Brad earned a Varsity letter as a freshman.

Way to go, Braditude!

I had never ran a timed 400 until last meet, and apperantly i'm really good at it so now i am in the city finals in the fast heat seeded with the second fastest score, it's intense.

well i did get second!

My daughter's (Andrea's) team is going to state in the 4x400, she runs the first leg. For the rest of the team: One boy is going in the 1600 (haven't heard his 3200 result yet) and one of the girls is going in long jump, 100 intermediate hurdles, and 400.


The "top 16" go to state. Even though Andrea's time in the 300 hurdles is in the "top 16" for all times posted in the state for the regular season, she was fourth in yesterday's tri-district meet; only the top three go on to state. Last year the top four went. Unfortunately, them's the breaks. On the plus side, two of the girls that beat her are seniors, so next year could be the year to make it to state in her individual events.

Wow, Steve, Andrea's growing up. We haven't seen her in five years. Congrats on her accomplishments. State is the BigTime!

Andrea's team did good at State Track. Sara took 3rd & 6th in the 100M Hurdles and 400M. Kyle took 13th in the mile.

And Andrea's 4x400 relay team took 8th (they're on the far left on the grass, Andrea is front right of her group) and my niece's team took 7th (Melinda is on far front right).
