Makenzie went in ranked 6th but came out in 8th, that;s really where she was ranked if they went off PR's, but the went off everyone's area throws. She threw 39' 1.5".

Discus was a little disappointing for Makenzie, she went in ranked 9th and came out 9th, but she didn't make the finals since they only take the top 8.She was throwing really well in her warm ups, in fact, we thought she might get a PR or even break the school record, but that didn't happen. We thought she had made it into the finals, but a girl in the 2nd flight threw one farther than her so it knocked her out of the finals. Makenzie broke down in tears as did Coach Fincher, he just hugged her and tried to console her. This would be the end of her high school throwing days. We were all sad for her, but she had nothing to be ashamed of, she had a fantastic season in track! She did get an email from the throwing coach at BYU and has extended an invitation to tryout for the team when school starts and he gave her the marks she would need to get a scholarship, so that is pretty exciting!
