It was the Region Track Meet last week. McKayla ran the 1600m, 800m, and 3200m races. She took 2nd in all 3 (losing each time to Lucy Biles (who holds the 5A state record in the 1600m and 3200m and was last year's state champ in both). In addition, the Riverton girls' team took 2nd place at the meet and the combined scores for the Riverton boys' and girls' put them at 2nd place overall.
McKayla missed the school record in the 800m by 0.4 seconds which was a bummer especially since she won't run it again.
McKayla is qualified for the state competition in the 3200m, 1600m, 800m, the medley relay, and the 4x400m relay. She will run the 3200m, 1600m, and the medley relay. That will give her plenty of races!
