2013 Year in Review

2013 is coming to a close. It was quite possibly the most successful year in Davis Track and Field and Cross Country history. The program ended the year with 4 region championships, 3 state championships, 1 national championship, two teams qualifying for NXN, and a podium finish at the Nike Cross Nationals (NXN).

Indoor Track - Although it's not an official state championship, both our boys and girls indoor track TEAMs won the Utah State Indoor Championships at the Olympic Oval in February. The girls scored 96 points at the indoor meet (2nd place was Ogden with 26), and the boys scored 75 (2nd place was Woods Cross with 47). We carried that momentum into the Simplot Games where we brought home more medals than Davis has ever won in one year. We also set 4 new school records at the Simplot Games: Seth Fortin in the 60m dash (6.92), Shea Martinez in the 800m (2:09), the girls 4 x 400 team of Shea, Taylor, Ellie, and Christine (3:57.93 - also a Utah State Indoor Record), and the boys 4 x 400 team of Seth Fortin, Trevor Leavitt, Jackson Sagers, and Seth Thompson (3:27). It was also the largest group we have ever had at Simplot.

Indoor track didn't end with Simplot. We were fortunate enough to bring a small group out to the New Balance Indoor Nationals at The Armory in New York City. In New York, Preston Johnson finished 7th in the 5000m (15:06) and the boys 4 x 1 mile team finished 10th, averaging 4:25 per runner. We also put together our fastest girls 4 x 800m team ever with Ellie Child, Joanna Boyd, Taylor Cox, and Shea Martinez. Those 4 girls ran 8:56.57 - the fastest ever for a Utah team and the 3rd fastest in U.S. history - and their effort earned them a National Championship. They worked so hard for that moment and then ran with purpose, determination, and unity. I still get the chills when I watch the race:

Outdoor Track - was just as exciting. Both the boys and the girls had perfect seasons - both teams were Super Meet champions, District champions, BYU Invite champions, Region champions, and State champions. It was the 3rd straight state title for both the boys and the girls - something that has only been done by one other team in 5A history. Some of the highlights of the year include: Shea's double victory at Arcadia (mile and 800m); Trevor Leavitt's school record 47.96 400m school record at the BYU Invite; Seth Fortin's 10.80 100m dash school record at the Davis Invitational; and an absolutely unbelievable state championship where both the girls and the boys dominated the field in our "double threepeat". The girls won by 90 points and the boys won by 38. The state meet itself included some huge highlights for us: Bailey Carling won the 100 and the 200; Shea Martinez won the 800 and 1600 for the 3rd year in a row (including a school and state record 2:08 800m); the girls won all 3 relays; Christine Van Brocklin had a very inspiring 300m hurdle victory; Jessica Richardson won in the discus; Kendall Sargent had a huge PR throw for 2nd place in the javelin; our girl distance runners scored 58 points in 3 events; the boys won the 4 x 100m relay for the first time in over 10 years; and the boys won the entire meet with only 1 individual title (Marcus Daley in the long jump).

With the end of the track season, we were sad to have 3 amazing coaches who are moving on to new things in their lives. Jamie West was at Davis for 6 years - first as the girls head coach and then as the hurdle coach. She is a great coach and an even better person. Jamie has moved up to Morgan with her husband, Wyatt, who is working as the town doctor. Lauren helped at Davis for 4 years with our sprinters. She brought toughness and energy to our program and we are really going to miss her. Lauren got married and is moving to Texas with her husband, Mike. Alayna has also helped at Davis with our throwers for 4 years. She is now working full time, but might be back now and then to help out (we hope). It will not be the same without these three awesome coaches.

Cross Country - The summer training set us up for another strong cross country season. The boys ran a total of 26,700 miles and the girls finished the 12 week summer with 14,400 - both were TEAM records. The 2012 season was going to be very hard to top after we had qualified both teams for the Nike Nationals. There were also a lot of question marks with this year's team because we had graduated so many seniors in the spring. As the season began, it was evident that with some patience and experience we could accomplish some great things. By the time we raced at Bob Firman, the girls were showing they could be the best Davis team yet. With some very good seniors (Taylor, Kenzie, Hannah, Ashley, Sierra, Aimee, and Chelsey) and the addition of a stellar freshman group (Aubrey, Ally, Miah, and Grace) we found ourselves set up for a run at the state team time record and a return trip to NXN. In fact, after setting the Bob Firman team time course record, we were sitting at the top of the dyestat national rankings. We held our #1 U.S. Ranking for 6 weeks - through the state meet and almost up until the Nike Regionals. At state, the girls ran a team time of 92:27 - breaking Bingham's 14 year record by 83 seconds. We placed 5 girls in the top 10 and were led by freshman Aubrey Argyle (2nd place). Aubrey ran a Davis course record of 18:09.

The boys season was equally exciting. We had our ups and downs, especially some very close losses (2nd by 1 point at Murray, 6th by 2 points at Bob Firman, 3rd at Westlake by 8 points), but we kept our heads up and showed a lot of patience and determination. The boys won their 19th straight region title, and finished 3rd place at the state meet. The boys could have easily been discouraged after the state meet, but they stayed positive and kept working toward Nike Regionals. With very slim chances of finishing top 2 and qualifying, we still went into the race with a goal of making it to Portland. All the patience and hard work paid off in Arizona as the boys ran their best race of the year and qualified to go back to NXN for the 4th year in a row. We were led all season by our captain Skylar Williams. It was a season of unity and faith. Our young, inexperienced TEAM found a way to put it together when it mattered most.

For the 2nd year in a row, both the boys and the girls qualified for the Nike Nationals. One of the things I love the most about the trip is that it inspires the runners to work hard to be their best. It also gives them some valuable experience against the best runners (and teams) in the country. The girls were hoping for a podium finish - and they didn't disappoint. We finished in 3rd place behind Wayzata (MN) and Manlius (NY). Taylor Cox was our top finisher in 39th place. The boys also ran very strong to finish 17th and were led once again by Skylar Williams. With only 2 seniors on the boys side, we are hoping to be back and fighting for a top spot in 2014.

Alumni - We are proud to have nearly 40 Davis Alumni who were affiliated with track and/or cross country programs this past year (and a few in other sports as well). Congratulations to each of them. Most of them competed, some of them wrapped up their eligibility, and quite a few of them left on LDS missions over this past year.

Dart Track Update

Darts - 
This is the final track update of the season (although I will still be sending out an email about Kaysville City Youth Track). There are just a few things I wanted to make sure you were all aware of. . . 

TEAM Barbecue/Awards Banquet - will be on Thursday, May 30th at Barnes Park at 5:30 at the big pavilion by the sand volleyball on the east side of the park. We will need some help getting some grills there and getting things set up. I hope you can all make it. The barbecue is for athletes only - we will not have enough burgers for parents. We are asking that anyone who would like will please bring dessert (cookies, brownies, popsicles, etc). The rest of the food/drink will be provided.

Uniforms - Should have been handed in last Thursday. For the 60 of you who still have your uniforms, please bring them by my classroom on Tuesday or Wednesday or bring them to track class on Tuesday. Fines will be turned in on Thursday.

Other Equipment - If any of you have shoes, throwing implements, or anything else that you have borrowed from the TEAM - please bring them back this week. Also - if any seniors have used spikes they would like to donate to the program, there will always be use for them in the future - just drop them off with me at any time. 

Cross Country Meeting - will be on Friday, May 31st at 2:45 in my classroom (#2512) - please help me spread the word to people who may not be award. We will be going over our summer training program. 

Decathlon/Heptathlon - For those interested, we will begin the decathlon/heptathlon on Tuesday near the end of track class. It will continue on Wednesday after school. This is for members of Davis Track only.

Adidas Dream Mile - Congratulations to Shea Martinez for her very solid effort on a cold, windy day in New York City yesterday. She finished with a 4:55 in the full mile. Shea finishes the season ranked #7 in the U.S. in the 800m, and in the top 25 in the mile.

Graduate Update - Congrats to Jared Ward (BYU) for qualifying for the NCAA National Championship in the 10,000m. He will race at the Nationals in 2 weeks in Eugene, OR. Also congrats to Candace Eddy (BYU) for finishing 18th at the Western Regionals - just narrowly missing qualifying for the NCAA Finals, and Bryce Hall for qualifying for the NCAA West Regional in both the hammer throw and the discus. And congrats to all of the Davis alumni for their outstanding college seasons. They continue to represent Davis well. 

It has been a great season. I look forward to working with many of you again next year. Best of luck to our seniors - our hearts will be with you. Show the world what you are made of.

Dart Track Update - State Champions!!!

Darts - 
I could not have been more proud of our TEAM at the end of two hard fought days of the state meet. Not because we brought home both of the trophies (for the 3rd year in a row) - but because we gave our very best in everything we did. We competed with a lot of heart and focus, and we showed so much unity and teamwork. Even through the challenges that we had and the disappointments we faced, we showed toughness and resilience. At the end of the meet, and as I have thought about it since, all that we have accomplished is beginning to set in - and it has made me a bit emotional. I apologize for the long email - but there is a lot to be said.  
In a way it is a very bitter-sweet end. This group of seniors have carried us for 3 years. They may not have scored a ton of points as sophomores - but they set the tone for our TEAM for all 3 years and they are truly champions. They have accomplished what only 1 other team (Mountain View) has done in the history of Utah track & field in any division - a THREEPEAT for both the boys and the girls. We are really going to miss all of our seniors and their leadership. But we are also going to do our best to carry on the tradition of excellence. 
One of my favorite statistics to see after the state meet is the combined boys and girls total scores. We scored the most points of any division (279) - and the 2nd most in 5A was Riverton with 133. It shows our strength on both sides. I feel that our boys have been made better by the girls and vice-versa. A few other statistics I was very happy with: We scored in 31 of the 33 events including all 17 of the boys events; we scored 58 total points in the relays - winning 5 out of 6 and placing 2nd in the boys 4 x 400; the boys had only 1 individual winner (Marcus) yet we were able to score 117 points showing our TEAM strength; A total of 59 Davis athletes competed at the state meet this year - a TEAM record (and possibly a state record).
There were so many solid performances - I will start with the finals from Day One. We started off strong in the 1600m. Shea, Ellie, and Taylor finished 1-2-4 to get us 23 opening points. It was Shea's 3rd straight state title in the 1600, and Ellie's 3rd time earning all-state (3rd - 2nd - 2nd). Shea and Ellie are two of the toughest competitors I have ever seen - they push themselves, they push each other, and they have taken our girls TEAM to a new level. Hannah also had a great PR of 5:07 for 9th. Preston, Alex, and Brayden finished 4-5-6 in a very deep 1600 field for the boys. The 12 points set the tone for things to come. The senior boy distance runners have truly had remarkable careers. From the time they were freshman in cross country to their final races on the track, they have represented Davis with guts and heart. We may never see another group who can do what Preston, Alex, Brayden, Andrew, Jackson, Seth, Hayden, Sam, and Ryan have done in xc and track. As the 1600 was wrapping up, Ben Bracken was killing it in the discus. He finished 2nd and was barely short of his PR. I love how hard Ben has worked to become his best. The pole vaulters picked up 4 points from Jordan (6th) and Trace (8th), and the high jumpers grabbed 2.5 more from Marcus and Andrew. It was Marcus's 4th year in a row scoring for us in the high jump. The other girls finals of the day were also strong for us - Kendall came through big time in the Javelin with a throw of 123'04 - she knew as she released it that it was a monster throw - it was good enough for 2nd (barely shy of 1st) and was a 7 foot PR. We are glad Kendall is a junior. Jessica and Kaylee have made me smile pretty much every time I have seen them for the past 3 years. They are true friends and teammates. I love watching them - they lift each other up on bad days, and they celebrate together on good days. They made me smile with their shot put results on Friday - Jessica finished 3rd and Kaylee PR'd to finish 7th - earning us 8 more points - plus sophomore Meghan David just missed finals finishing 10th. 
This year's Saturday was quite possibly my favorite state meet Saturday ever. After competing in the final event of Friday, Jessica and Kaylee came back on Saturday morning to start us off in the discus (the first event of the morning). They had to stay mentally tough in the early morning rain. Jessica finished her great throwing career with a first place toss of 130'04. It was her first time over 130 - and was only 1 foot shy of Coach Alayna's high school PR. Kaylee showed a lot of poise, making finals on her 3rd throw - and then improved to 109' - good enough for a 5th place finish - and 12 more points between the 2 of them. In the girls 3200, Ellie nearly pulled off the upset, and ran her 2nd fastest ever - 10:56 for 2nd place. We also had a strong group of underclassmen who are going to make some noise in cross country this fall (Kenzie, Ashley, Chelsey, Sierra, and Aimee). The boys ran strong races as well - and we were led by Cromar's 6th place finish with a season best 9:29. Stokton also finished his season with a strong PR of 9:51. During the 3200, Jeff Whittaker was putting on a show for us in the javelin. After a solid 5th throw of 176'10 (a season best), Jeff pulled into the lead. He nearly pulled it off, but was narrowly passed by two of the final throwers. Still, Jeff's 3rd place finish was the 2nd time he earned All-State in the javelin. Still in the field events, Tanisha picked up some points for us in the high jump. It was the 3rd straight year that she finished as our top jumper and earned points for our TEAM. The morning seemed to be starting off well - and only got better. Libby and Hailee finished 3-5 in the hurdles (going into finals ranked 5-8). They stepped up for their teammate Christine who had hit a hurdle in the trials and was a favorite to win the 100 hurdles but missed the finals. For the boys, Ammon came through in both of the hurdles on Saturday. He was not ranked in the top 8 in either event - and had something to prove. He finished 4th in the 110 and 6th in the 300 hurdles - scoring an unexpected, but huge, 8 points for us. Bailey Carling's first race of the day was very inspiring and kept our momentum going. She has been strong all year in the 100m - she really wanted this state title. When she was challenged in the middle of the race, you could see her determination as she found another gear and pulled ahead for the win and for her PR of 12.31 (Davis #2 all-time behind Sylvia). Seth Fortin also looked strong in the boys 100m - with a 3rd place finish - but even more impressive is Seth's toughness and faith. He has stayed as positive and strong as possible these past 4-5 weeks while dealing with back and hamstring trouble. He has been here for our TEAM when we have needed him - and he is always so willing to dig deep and do everything he can. Even when he is in pain - he finds a way to fight for his TEAM. He has been a rock for us for 3 years through his example and leadership. Both Bailey and Seth came back to anchor the next event - the 4 x 100m relay. As far as I know, we have never won the girls and the boys 4 x 100 relay in the same year, and it has been a long, long time since the boys have had a victory in the event. This was our year! Coach Parrish and Lauren had prepared them well, our handoffs had gotten better and better, and all 8 of them wanted it. Rachel, Elise, and Sarah ran a smooth race, but Bailey got the baton in 4th. She quickly passed the 2 runners closest to her, but kept it dramatic as she ran down the team from Lone Peak with only about 15 meters to go. Their time of 49.05 was our fastest of the year. The boys had to deal with the rain, but definitely kept their focus. In what I think was our strongest 4 x 100 of the year, Trevor, Chance, Marcus, and Seth ran away with it - leading from the start and finishing with 42.10 in less than ideal weather conditions. Trevor did not have much time to recover as he immediately had to get ready for a very challenging 400m. He didn't quite match his season best (47.95), but did come through strong with 48.19 - good enough for 3rd. Trevor also showed our TEAM's resilience as he has been unable to really push himself after tweaking his leg in the region 100m dash, and he showed great sportsmanship (as recognized in the Deseret News) in sincerely congratulating the 400m winner, Clay Lambourne from Riverton, whose sister had passed away from cancer earlier this week. Marcus also had a quick turn around and got himself ready for the long jump - an event where he has struggled through most of this year - even though he was state champion a year ago. With a HUGE group of Davis fans their to cheer him on, Marcus did it again - pulled off the victory when people may have counted him out. He told me after the long jump that he could not have done it without the love from his teammates - they helped him stay positive despite a knee injury that has really challenged him all year. In the girls 300m hurdles, Christine definitely wanted to show what she was made of. She ran a determined and gutsy race and left it all on the track and finished her hurdling career with a very well-deserved 1st place finish. It was so much sweeter after having missed the finals in the 100 hurdles. Christine has shown her perseverance and her ability to bounce back time and time again. Tyra also ran a very impressive PR of 46.55 (Davis #11 all-time) to finish a strong 7th place. The 800m was next. It has been one of our strongest events of the past few years - this state championship was no different. With all 4 of our national champion 4 x 800m relay team (and 2 other teammates) in the race  - we were sure to finish strong. Shea pulled off her second individual threepeat of the day with a 2:09 1st place finish, she was followed by Taylor in 2:15 for 2nd, and Ellie in 2:19 for 4th. Kami ran a gutsy race to finish 6th and give us 26 points in the race - giving us an overall distance total of 58 points - almost enough to win the meet in just 3 events. Shea came back 30 minutes later to anchor our winning medley relay team. Libby, Hailee, and Rachel all ran tough to get her the baton right behind the leaders - and then Shea took over. Shea has this unbelievable ability to dig deep and find a way to run strong - even in her 3rd or 4th races. She graduates with nine first place track titles, 2 first place xc finishes, and 6 state rings. She has done a great job dealing with pressure, competing for her TEAM, and leading us to state titles. We picked up some very valuable points in the boys 800m as well. Boys distance running in Utah is so strong this year - that any points become valuable. Jackson ran strong for 4th, and Brayden showed us one last time his ability to run stronger and faster than I thought possible with a 1:56 PR in his 3rd race of the meet and final race of his Davis career. Brayden is another senior who has set the tone for us and has continually surprised me with his determination to finish races and dig deeper than anyone else in the race. Our boys medley relay kept the relay streak going with a great 1st place performance - it was not a relay we were expected to win, but momentum was definitely in our favor. Colton, Ty, and Robert did an outstanding job getting Alex the baton in position for the win. It was also Alex's 3rd race of the meet and final race for Davis on the track - and he did not disappoint. He stayed patient with the leaders and then unleashed a killer kick with 150 to go to pull away for the win. It was also a sweet victory for Alex in his final race of a great Davis career. I was so proud of him. We pretty much had it wrapped up at this point - but there was still some icing on the cake. Bailey's 200m was one of my favorite races of the meet - mostly because she emerged so late in the season as a great 200m runner. It was only 2 weeks ago at the BYU Invite that she finally broke 26.5 seconds and we decided to give it a shot at state. Her 25.16 in the finals was good enough for the victory - and would be 2nd on the Davis all-time list if it hadn't had a tailwind. It was awesome for Bailey to get 3 first place finishes after so much hard work. Seth Fortin found a way to finish his 6th race of the meet. He finished his Davis career with a strong 3rd place in the 200m. We had all been pretty worried about his hamstring, but Seth just took it one race at a time, and led us to victory. In our final field event of the meet, Ben and Sam both scored for us in the shot put. They have been another duo that has been so fun to watch. I don't know if I have ever seen two people want it so bad. They have been working incredibly hard for 3 years and have seen some BIG improvement. It is a true testament that hard work and determination pays off - and that two teammates and friends can accomplish so much more if they work together. Ben (who didn't even qualify a year ago) finished 3rd with a throw of 53'06, and Sam was 7th with 49'08. And in our final events of the meet - the 4 x 400s - we continued to roll. It would have probably been a lot more comfortable to cruise through the 4 x 400 with 8 tired athletes considering that we were well ahead of any team - but instead we ran our fastest 4 x 400s of the year. Taylor, Ellie, Christine, and Shea got a sweet victory (after barely getting 2nd in 2012) in 3:57, to finish off the Davis girls relay sweep; and Ryan, Jackson, Seth Thompson, and Trevor finished in 3:22 to place 2nd behind the state record holding Riverton team. 

Also - Congratulations to our Academic All-State athletes - Hayden Hansen, Jackson Sagers, Alex Hedquist, Seth Thompson, and Libby Fowler. And Congratulations to Andrew Spilker - the winner of the Willy Cowdin Inspirational Athlete Award.
