And She Keeps Improving!

Makenzie participated in the Rice University Victor Lopez Classic this past week on the Rice University campus.   It was a 3 day meet, but she just participated on Thursday night and Friday afternoon. This was a huge meet with many participants and some nationally ranked athletes. Makenzie did really well. Thursday night she threw the discus 108' 11" which tied her personal best which earned her 7th place out of 46 girls and she earned 2 points for the Cinco Ranch girls team. Saturday afternoon she threw the shot put 37' 3/4" for a personal record which also earned her 7th place.Every week she has improved on either shot put or discus and we couldn't be more proud of her!! 

What a contrast in the weather on those 2 days. Thursday night was windy, misty and kind of cold when the sun went down. Friday it was in the mid 80's and very humid. We got a little pink sitting outside.

Friday Meet-Shot Put

We ran into Megan Palmer. Megan plays basketball for Rice,
 but she was Makenzie's"basketball big sister" Makenzie's freshman year.
Megan was working the discus ring next to the shot. It was fun seeing her!

A very happy Makenzie after getting a personal best and placing 7th!

I saw this lonely bluebonnet at the end of the shot put sector
