Next up was Julia Schiantarelli running in the 4 x 800 meter relay. Julia was pretty nervous because her coach at put her in as the anchor leg. Julia's team ran well and handed off to Julia in a little group. Julia Got passed early by one girl, but hung tough with a the group (Andrea Keklak from LS was waltzing home easily in first) and when I yelled at her to hang tough on the back stretch I wasn't convinced she was going to be able to, being in in 8th place at that point, but coming around the far turn Julia started to make a move and in the last 100 m hauled in two girls in front of her to bring her team home in the points in 6th place. Nice running!
Sorry if I missed anyone else at the meet.
Both Ellen and Julia are now headed to the state meet next weekend. Good luck!!
