First Track Meet

Makenzie had her first Track Meet of the season coming off of basketball season. She participated in the Will Taylor Relays held at Memorial High School in Houston. She had to be at the school at 6am for an 8:30 am track meet and the school was maybe 25 minutes away.  They didn't leave until 6:45 and they were still the first school there. Makenzie did well for her first meet with only a few days of practice. She placed 6th in the discus with a throw of 91'8". She placed 3rd in the shot put with a throw of 34'2". These aren't her best throws, but not too bad for what little practice she had. She now has her starting points and can improve from there. Way to start off your season, Makenzie!

First school there and they are all bundled up because it was only 40 degrees outside

Checking in at discus and getting instructions

Her legs and ankles are banged up from basketball.
She still gets swelling in her shin from an old soccer injury and
her ankle is still not 100% from when she sprained it in basketball.

Getting ready for Shot Put

It was a sunny, but cool day

Getting instruction for Shot Put
