Hey, You’ve Got K-Mail!
Throwin' in the Rain at the Gator Invitational!
Welcome to our Email Newsletter! Your ideas are important to us. If you have any comments or suggestions for future newsletters, please email me.
This edition of K-Mail covers the results of the Gator Invitational, held here at home in Gainesville on Sunday, Feb 9.
I don't have any pictures of the weight throw--sorry! But my camera doesn't like rain, and it was REALLY raining. Some of the girls, including me, decided not to throw. Coach Judge thought I was too much of a beginner to compete in the rain, and that I might fall. On top of my elbow (I tweaked it a bit in the weight at UNC last week), the rain made my throwing seem like not such a great idea.
In spite of the rain, though, our Lady Gators did great! The five girls who decided to compete swept the top five spots! Dore', Rachel, and Jyn (redshirting--competing unattached) even got their best throws so far this year. We were hoping to have a good competition with the LSU girls...they came, but didn't throw. The SEC is going to be an awesome meet!
|9||Groves, Mamee||South Carolina||16.32m||53-06.50|
|10||Odum, India||South Carolina||16.07m||52-08.75|
Seventeen girls threw the shot, and Florida took
the following places:
1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 12. It was fun to see fellow Californian Katie McKeever,
who transferred from Oregon to LSU. We competed with each other all the time
in high school.
Here are the shot results:
|2||Kendrick, Nicole||South Carolina||16.23m||53-03.00|
|4||Young, Cerenity||Florida State||15.48m||50-09.50|
|11||Odum, India||South Carolina||14.23m||46-08.25|
|13||Groover, Keri||South Carolina||14.16m||46-05.50|
|15||Kinney, Amanda||Florida State||13.71m||44-11.75|
|16||Batten, Makiba||Florida Stat||13.47m||44-02.50|
So far this year, I've thrown three 53's and one 54,
with 2 firsts and 2 seconds.
I guess consistency is not a bad thing, but my goal is to be "inconsistent" now
in an upwards direction!
Candice and I took out a little frustration about the
weather (Candice) and the marks (me) in the Gator
Weightroom. For more pics of our Lady Gator Thrower weight workouts, click here.
