Coach Kevin's Comments

The Heat runners had a great showing at the Central Valley meet yesterday in Modesto. The conditions were very windy and a bit cold. Rain was threatening most of the afternoon.

1500 m results
MG Juila Bounds (81- 2:47-4:09-5:05.6) 2nd place - great tactical race with perfect positioning. New personal best!
MG Maddie Murphy (91- 3:14- 5:01 - 6:07.8) The second half is faster than the first half! Well done.

MB Michael Dunne (77- 2:36 - 3:56- 4:52.87) 1st place. New Meet Record!
MB Kent Slaney (78 - 2:41- 4:10 - 5:12.87) 2nd place. Fast time in windy conditions.
MB KJ Moody (79 - 2:52- 4:21 - 5:18.9) 3rd place. Tough run for being sick most of the week. Really strong last lap to move up to 3rd.
MB Lukas Von Goetz (84 - 3:05 - 4:48 - 5:59.4). New Personal Best and now sub 6:00! Great race.

YB Jonas Harmer (81 - 2:50 - 4:19 - 5:21.2) New Personal Best!
IB Cody Mayer (72 - 2:32 - 3:46 - 4:35.6) 2nd. Fast time for the windy conditions. Converts to a 4:53 for 1600.

MB Lukas Von Goetz 37.5 - 1:17.9 Great race. He lowered his best time by 12 seconds!
YB Ryan May 27.8 - 1:01.8 400s are really hard to run in high winds.
IB Cody Mayer 26.7 - 55.5 1st place!

YB Ryan May 25.8 2nd place with a photo finish. Closing in on team record of 25.06

MB Julia Bounds (35 - 1:15- 1:56 - 2:36) 3rd. Perfect start that led right into perfect position. The wind made fast times in the 800 impossible.
MB Kent Slaney (35 - 1:15 - 2:01 - 2:42) 2nd Solid push in the middle of the race moved him into 2nd place for good.
MB KJ Moody (35 - 1:18 - 2:08 - 2:47) 3rd Great last 200 to get into medal position
YB Jonas Harmer (35 - 1:15- 1:55 - 2:33) 1st place. Perfect race. Good use of other runners. Kicked at the perfect time.
YB Ryan May (38 - 1:20 - 2:03 - 2:37.5) Not much rest after the 200! Ran 2nd half faster than the first half!
IB Cody Mayer (26 - 1:14 - 1:42 - 2:14) 1st place with a 60 second last 400! Note the 28 second 200 between 400 and 600, that is how you break a race wide open and make it yours.
