Week-by-week, it is clear to the coaches that we have something special with this team. The Hawks continue to get better, run tougher, improve their times, and bury their competition. It is a wonder to witness!
Yesterday, at the second SRA Meet, our Hawks continued to soar. With steely-eyes and a hardened look, every Hawk demonstrated to the world the power they are building from running in those sandy Lock Hills. Onlookers commented on how strong the Delta Hawks looked, and opponents shared timid glances as our athletes pushed past them on the course. It was a glorious day in the foothills.
In the 6th and Under Boy’s race, Elias (1st), Lou (7th), and Owen (20th) took their revenge on the Buffalo Chips by winning our fourth team championship of the season. Our Girl’s 6th and Under team finished an impressive 2nd in the team score, with Adeleine finishing 3rd, Natalie in 8th, and Sonia just out of the medals in 12th place.
In the Boy’s 7th/8th race, Matthew led the way with a strong 2nd place finish, with Charlie (20th) and Gage (61st) rounding out our scoring runners. Delaney was our sole representative in the Girl’s 7th/8th race this week, but made a blistering improvement over the last SRA meet, shaving 1:40 off her time from two weeks ago.
There were so many impressive performances, it’s impossible to single out any one Hawk for accolades this week. Despite this course being a bit longer and hillier, every single runner improved their pace over that which they ran at the first SRA meet. These Hawks have really been putting in the work, supporting each other, pushing each other, and the results are clear. The region is taking notice – those Delta Hawks come to race!
