This weekend was the Cal/Nevada championship. This meet is a big meet for most of the schools in California because it is a two day meet with best competition from all of California or Nevada. Now this is the last Cal/Nevada championship I will EVER compete in so it calls for some reflection.
My freshman year I didn’t qualify. In fact, I remember sitting in my teammates room while she was in Fresno and ended up winning the high jump. I said to myself then that I will always make Cal/Nevada no matter what and I have. The following year I just made it in the 400m relay. Since then I have made it in the 400m relay as well as the 400 hurdles. As I look back, I have come a long ways! From not qualifying to qualifying in all my events. I actually am amazed. There has been tremendous growth by myself.
We took 11 guys and 7 girls. We did pretty good. Definitely room to improve. It was the first time we had a two day meet this year so it was a huge learning experience. The highlight was Alyssa Page and Taevionna Wilson qualifying as freshmen in two individual events. Alyssa Page even qualified for finals in the 200. Jordan Taylor continued his sensational sophomore campaign and won the 100 meter dash and came in second in the 200 meter dash with a seasonal best of 21.30. Video will follow for these two individuals races.
