Every year coaches from the Southwest States (CA, AZ, NM, CO, TX, UT, etc) select the top athletes to represent their state at eh Great Southwest Classic in Albuquerque.
This year McKayla was chosen. She ran the 4x800m relay and her team took 4th. She also ran the 3200m and took 3rd! Here's a link to the video of her race http://great-southwest-classic.runnerspace.com/eprofile.php?event_id=2133&do=videos&video_id=91763
Utah is so dominant in the distance events. Utah took 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 7th in the 4x800 relay. Utah took 1st in the 1600m. Utah took 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 7th in the 3200m. I wonder why that is?
Still, very cool to have her place 3rd!
