The Delta Hawks Racing Team builds incredible young runners! Our three remaining OHs (Original Hawks from the 2019 inaugural Delta Hawks team) have developed into strong, competitive runners and amazing leaders. That is our mission - to develop the next generation of confident, competitive elite runners in the Sacramento region.
Outstanding performances across the board at the Josh Ruff Memorial Invitational were a demonstration of the Hawks' team accomplishment! We had four runners earn medals (Adeleine and Natalie, Elias and Pier) and the girl's team placed third overall. More importantly, we had younger runners boldly competing against bigger middle school athletes, representing the next generation of elite runners rising from the Delta Hawks ranks!
On the girl's side, Josie was the fastest 4th grader in the race, Hadley was the fastest 3rd grader, and our new runner Mia Jackson was the fastest girl under 3rd grade! Meanwhile, our 9-10 boys really dominated for their age, with Pier finishing in 16th place, followed by David, Jack, newcomer Evan Jackson, Tyler, Cal, and Cameron. When Henry joins us, we will be a force to be reckoned with!
We won't have another chance to compete for two weeks, but the next race will be a fun one where 6th-grade and under compete in their own race and then 7th/8th graders race each other - giving our younger kids a little more opportunity!
This week, we focus on training. We will be at Lock Hills on Monday and the Boathouse on Thursday. Here's the schedule:
Monday - Intervals at Lock Hills
(Meet at STONEGATE ELEMENTARY)
Tuesday - Rest & Stretch
Wednesday - On your own
Thursday - Swamp Relay Run
(Meet at BRIDGEWAY LAKES BOATHOUSE)
Friday - Rest & Stretch
Saturday or Sunday - LONG Easy Run
REMEMBER: What you put into your training will dictate what you get out of your races. Train Hard, Win Easy!
