44 Farms Relays -- Cameron
 
This meet was not completed due to time constraints.
The JV only finished events through the 4x200 M Relay and the Varsity only completed events through the 300 M Hurdles.
 
Varsity Boys:
Through the 300 M Hurdles we had 60 Points and were third place. First and second were very close, it is hard to say if we would have won the meet, but our odds were high considering we most likely would have won the 1600 M Run, gotten points in the 200 M Run and Pointed in the 4x400 M Relay.
 
100 M Dash:
Ronak Naik 11.4 3rd Place
Delane Hornsby 11.44 5th Place
 
400 M Dash:
Derrian Duncan 53.47 6th Place
 
800 M Run:
Eli Ortiz 2:06.59 2nd Place -- There were too many runners placed on the track for one heat. Eli was stacked behind two other competitors in lane one so he never could get out and run until about 160 meters into the race. His time was very good considering his lane placement which never should have happened in the first place.

Eli Ortiz 10:29.52 1st Place

Eli Ortiz 2nd Place 4:40.12 - Personal Best for Eli, this was a great race. He and another athlete finished on the line virtually simultaneously and the decision went to the other runner. This is a pretty fast time considering the 20 to 30 MPH winds during the competition.

4x100 M Relay:
1st Place 44.80 -- This time is a bit deceptive. On the 4th leg an athlete from another school took the hand off and cut into our lane. Our anchor leg, Paul Key, didn't know what to do. Paul thought about passing the other athlete but ultimately chose to run behind him down our lane. By doing this Paul never could run full speed and ran his leg at around 85-90%. The other team got disqualified and we have no idea what we were about to run for time.
