The Flyers arrived at Chandler high school missing a few athletes due to illness, injury and outside commitments, but the 7 who competed had some strong showings.
With only a month before the Arizona Junior Olympic meet our Flyers are definitely beginning to find their rhythm in many of their events.
Braden Lolli (7) in the 8 & Under boys’ 800 meter smoked the competition with an impressive 3:15.61 debut. This is the Phoenix Flyers Track Club first 1st place finish in a meet this season. Braden also managed a 5th place showing in the boys’ long jump with a mark of 2.46 meters.
Although Charlie Allison (9) didn’t win his events he took home two 2nd place ribbons with PRs in the javelin (25.97 m) and also in the long jump (3.74 m). Charlie ended his day with a strong effort in the 100 meters with a new personal best of 16.12 seconds.
Ava Clegg (6) kept her PR streak alive with a nice improvement in the long jump with a 2.19 meter mark.
Halle Yellowhair (9), even though in the unfavorable outside lane 8, was able to drop her 400 meter time by over a second with a 1:28.13 finish.
Bekkah Weier (11) can’t seem to break that 2.94 meter mark in the long jump with her 3rd meet in a row attaining this distance; but she has found improvement in the javelin each and every meet. This week she managed to take 5th place and improve her throw to 12.38 meters.
Sister, Hannah Weier (8), while not setting any bests around the oval on Saturday was able to manage a PR in the javelin with a 8.64 meter throw.
Christina Diggs, who didn’t compete last weekend, was able to have some solid performances as well in the 400 meters (1:28.87) and in the long jump (2.85 meters) at Chandler.
The Flyers have no meet this upcoming weekend, but will compete next at Central High School for the last Regulation meet of the season on Saturday, May 18th.
