It’s a tough pill to swallow knowing that our girls were the 3A State Runners Up last year and again this year. Last year we fell short by 4 pts and this year we fell short by 3 pts. Thank you @ihsa_il for running a wonderful meet and thank you @eiu for being a wonderfully organized host! This summer is about getting faster, stronger and better. I’m grateful for this @hfvikinggirlstf staff, these hard working girls and especially our Athletic Director Dan Vosnos. Next year we’ll be back with a vengeance. 🔥💪🏾#redsmoke #govikings #trackandfield #state #illinois #Class3A #tracknation #fieldnation #tracklife
Inspiration. I wish i knew Savannah’s (Sr. from Metamora) IG. 🔥💪🏾#ihsa #state #shotput #thrownation
This brought a #smile to my #heart. ☺️ I truly miss her! @gamecockthrows #GoGamecocks #KDYoung #8TimeStateChamp #coach #athlete #shotput #discus #champion
💿⚫️🚨STATE CHAMPION ALERT🚨⚫️💿 Congratulations to Cassidy Clark @clark_the_shark10 of Mt. Pulaski Middle School on winning 🥇the #ShotPut for IESA 8th Grade Girls with a PR of 33’7.5” and 🥈placing 2nd in #discus with a throw of 100’3”. Everyone knows the throw events are about inches. Going into the finals for shot put she sat in 2nd place. No one in the finals had improved their distance. 😔Her PR coming into the state meet was 32’11” 👍🏾of which she threw the previous weekend at the sectional meet. In order for her to take 1st place, she needed to throw beyond 33’5”... 6” more from her PR. 🤔 Seeing her launch the shot out there was beautiful. The eruption of her entire family and friends speaks for itself. We knew she had punched a powerful one out there, we just didn’t know how far... 🗣Turn the volume up to hear it all play out!🗣 Thank you to the Clark Family and Friends for such an awesome support base for Cassidy. It’s absolutely amazing and humbling to be her coach. Thank you Coach Johnson of @aretethrowsnation and Coach Angel @coachangeldls for your ongoing support and efforts. #ATNMidwest truly appreciates everything you do for the greater good of this sport and the #throw events! #atn #aretethrowsnation #tcr #throwingchainreaction #trackandfield #tracklife #tracknation #fieldnation #thrownation
The Track Season in Review: 2 weeks left with my @hfvikingsthrows boys. This season has been one to remember! Being a part of both the 2018 HF Boys and HF Girls Track & Field programs has been an honor and learning experience. Both Head Coaches have put in a lot of work preparing their teams for a successful season. State is this week for the girls and next week for the boys. I’m excited to get back to the drawing board for the off season once the season has come to an official end. If they thought weights during the season was tough, it’s about to get a WHOLE LOT MORE FUN! 😏 #GoVikings #HFTrackandField #RedSmoke #HFFamily #HFVikingsThrows #HFThrows #TrackAndField #FieldNation #TrackNation #TrackLife #Blessed
To my beloved athletes: The greatest part about being a #coach is getting to know my athletes and their families. I consider each and every athlete I work with my child. My compassion for each athlete working to better themselves comes from a motherly perspective. Thank you to every athlete I’ve worked with over the near decade I’ve been coaching and personal training! I truly appreciate your time, effort, work ethic and especially your love in return. I’m humbled by the trust and confidence each of you give me. Lord knows I’m grateful for the gift with which He’s blessed me and in return I’m able to share with all you talented throwers. Mālo aupito! Ofa lahi atu, Coach #coach #mother #athletes #thankful #happymothersday #icantfiteveryoneinthispost 🤦🏽‍♀️lol
To the Love of my Life: God truly blessed me when He chose me to be your mother. Life as I knew it changed for the better! You keep me grounded. You’re the constant reminder of why I give and love unconditionally. Your growth and maturation at the ripe age of 11 continues to keep me inspired and motivated to better myself each day. Thank you for being the greatest gift God could have ever given me! Ofa lahi atu, Mom 💋 #mother #hmd #happymothersday #blessed #life #love #laugh
