First To The Finish - Detweiler Park, Peoria  9/11/21

Detweiler...Ready or Not!
I have to admit that I'm a little greedy.  Even though we had all kinds of PR's, I wanted more.  We have high hopes for this team, and significant drops in our times isn't coming fast enough for me.  It's my belief that we can be so much better!  That's my belief, and I'm sticking to it.  To be honest, this is a crazy race. It's filled with some of the best teams in the State!  As a Varsity, we finished 34/49. However, that doesn't tell the whole story.  Our 1-5 split was once again over 4 minutes.  In a race this large, that's a killer to any team score.  Simply put, we have to get better.  I believe we will.
If this newletter feels like a downer, that isn't my intent. Rather, it's a call for our girl's to rally behind one another.  Quite simply, expect more of your teammates, and yourself!  As I mentioned earlier, we had a huge PR day and none bigger than our Raider of The Meet, Sarah Ledford.  Sarah took over 2 minutes off her season PR and also ran a Meet PR!  Lauren price, Naomi Friedman, and Simone Witort all ran career best times, with Kylie DeNardo, Maggie Riley, Alyssa Kain, Emily Frieling , and Ava Benes, all running a seasons best or meet PR!   

 This coming week is a short week as we race on Friday night at Cantigny.  This would be a great meet to tighten up our splits and continue to get better!  Take a close look at the picture below.  Let's Go Raiders!
