McKayla's first meet

McKayla was really nervous for her first collegiate cross-country meet. She knew where she fit in on the Riverton High team (she was ALWAYS their top female runner) but she had no idea how she stacked up against her UVU (Utah Valley University) teammates. Last Saturday she had the opportunity to find out! She had her first meet at Utah State University against USU, Westminster, and University of Wyoming. Wyoming killed all over teams taking 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 6th. McKayla's teammate, Darian Sharp, took 5th and McKayla took 7th! I was really proud of her and thought she'd done great! She was 9 seconds behind Darian but only half a second ahead of her teammate and captain, Ivie Gonsalves so it was a close race. Her coach never says much but I can't imagine that he is not excited about this freshman!
