MOC day one notes

MOC is always one of the most exciting meets you can ever witness as kids are giving it their all for one of the precious three spots to state.
Here are a few of yesterdays big moments.

In the girls shot put Rancho Cotate’s Siolo Lua’s PR going into the meet was 37-0.5.
After her first 3 attempts she was only at 7th place at 36-3.25, barely making the final three attempts. She fouled her 4th attempt.
Then had a huge PR in the 5th round at 38-7.25 to move into 4th place before hitting her 38-9.25 state qualifier on her very last attempt.

Siolo Lua at Viking Classic by Jim Crowhurst

This is the first year of the 4X800 relay being a state qualifying event.
Montgomery girls got the baton to Hanne Thomsen in 5th place after the first 3 legs, 5.51 seconds behind the 2nd place team. Thomsen anchored with a 2:12.58 to move the team all the way to second place with the top five team all breaking the old meet record. I don’t know the order but the other Viking splits were 2:26.22, 2:28.10, 2:23.85.
