Man the weather sucks–rain rain and more rain. It’s Intermission time now. Class A and C are done. Next up are Classes B and D at 3:30. Had to go to the car to get out of the wet nasty. Good thing this is not a cold rain.
Everyone please say prayers for former outstanding Nebraska high school baseball and football player Greg Denniston out of Lourdes Central Catholic. I ran into his father and he told me Greg was now in the Army serving in Afghanistan–a dangerous area too. Having served in the Army myself (Persian Gulf War) I know what it must be like for him and his family.
I tell you what that the Class A 400 final is going to be a great race! Dennis Barfield ran another PR (48.76) to beat Garrett Teel. I told you all he got the eye of the tiger. That was a good heat he beat. But Foltz ran a better time in his heat (48.54) and he looked very good. He will be tough to beat but if anyone can it’s Barfield.
The girls 100 just got more interesting too with Nichols 12.16 PR. She also has the best time in the 200 going into tomorrow. What that girl been eating?
Kenzo Cotton looked good winning his heat with ease, he coasted in so he should break 22 tomorrow if the weather is alright.
Well I’m heading back in to get my first look at the Cozad Cobra. Check back. And don’t forget the prayers for Greg.
