Davis Track Update - District Champions

Darts -
It was a great week for Davis track & field. We started the week with some incredible performances and an outstanding TEAM win for both the boys and the girls at the Davis District Championships. The girls scored a record setting 260 points, and the boys weren't far behind with 255. It was by far the most combined points we have ever scored at a District Meet. The results are posted on the blog ( One of the highlights of the meet was Shea Martinez winning the 800m in a meet record, school record, and nation leading 2:12.90. Our depth and our toughness is showing in many ways as we scored in every single event (all 33 of them). It was a fun meet, and we were happy with your intensity and your competitiveness, even if it did make us a little tired for the weekend invitational at UVU.
At the UVU Invitational yesterday, the girls had some great individual prs and looked strong as a TEAM. In the final TEAM scores, we finished with 77.5 - 16 points ahead of 2nd place, Riverton. It took quite a bit of toughness after having worked so hard at the District Meet.
The boys had some great prs, but we also had quite a few things go wrong. In the hurdles, Dalton got stepped on by one of his competitors who was going down, taking Dalton out with him. Two of our relays had exchange violations and didn't finish, we pulled our 4 x 400m relay at the end of the meet. And we were missing a few of our regular scorers with injuries and vacations. Even with all of that, we were still able to finish up in 2nd place (only 4.5 points out of first place). We will have many more opportunities to prove ourselves this year and we will be more prepared and more focused.
In the boys and girls combined team scoring, we came out on top with 135 points, ahead of 2nd place Riverton (123) and 3rd place Mountain View (82.5). We definitely had our ups and downs at the meet, but as coaches, we were proud of the efforts at the end of a long week. Thanks for making the sacrifices to be there for your TEAM and for spending the long Saturday at the track meet. I am sorry that we were home so late. Full results can be found at and the Davis results can be found at the bottom of this email.

Coming Up -
April 8-9: Arcadia Invite, CA - a small number from the TEAM are traveling to California during spring break to compete in the Arcadia Invitational with many of the top athletes from the country. I will send out a full report next week.
April 13: Tri-meet at Weber High with Weber and Layton. Everyone who is eligible will be able to compete in whatever events you would like to try.

Spring Break Workouts - it is important at this point in the season that we don't lose the fitness and strength that we have gained by all of our hard work.

It's great to see the Darts doing so well. Names have changed, but the TEAM tradition and success continue. From a 10 year alum, good luck Davis!
