State 2016

These four girls made school history at State.  They are the first girls cross country team at Deubrook to ever place at State.  After a season of injuries, frustrations and lots of ice, they ended up taking 6th place!  How awesome is that?
Their coaches did an amazing job of encouraging and helping them through the season.  They made sure these girls had what they needed to be successful and they were there cheering them on at every race.  Even on the bad days, they were there building them up and telling them they would get it next time.

It was a beautiful day for a race.  Before every race our girls always huddle for a prayer.  They do it in basketball, volleyball and track too.  I love seeing the girls bow their heads and seek for help from a Higher Source.  At State, before our girls ran, all the girls circled up in a prayer circle.  It was so neat to see!  Class B girls were the only ones who did it.  What a way to start the race!
Our girls all ran hard.  Each course is so different and you can't compare times from course to course.  Makenna was sad because she didn't run her best time of the season, but she did what she needed to do.  Josie took 2nd.  Andrea took 9th.  Makenna was our 3rd runner.  Her placement would determine if we placed or not.  Even though she was disappointed with her time, she didn't let the team down.  They all were able to walk away with their heads high, their hips and knees iced, with a smile on their face!
Can't wait to see what they do next year!
