Texas 5A Region 3 Track and Field Championships

Once again Makenzie earned a spot in Regionals for shot put. There are 4 Regions in Texas and we are Region 3. There are 64 plus or minus high schools in this region. Makenzie headed into Regionals in the #12 spot and ended up taking 8th place with a new personal record of 38' 1/2". She had 3 throws and hit her previous PR which landed her in the finals. She was 8th going into the finals and left there, but with a new PR so we are extremely happy for her as were her coaches!

She's got her number pinned on and she is ready to go.
She was a little bummed that her number wasn't divisible by 3. She likes those numbers.

An excited group knowing she made it into the finals

A very happy Coach Mathias.
She was Makenzie's Freshman basketball coach and I think she is happier for Makenzie
 than she was when they went undefeated in basketball their freshman year!

All the girls in the finals getting instructions

Her final throw in the finals that landed her a new PR!
