Fast little bugger!

Well,  since there was NO basketball season or soccer season I will update you all on the lovely track season.  As you can see I am a little bitter about the sport Hudson has chosen to compete in......We go to watch him run for 11 or 22 seconds 3 or 4 times each track meet. Even though I'd much rather be watching him make a goal he has proven worthy to be on the track team. 
We had our first meet in Grantsville, I wont be able to remember all the times but, he has done well.  I know at this meet he ran a 11.99 and set his goal to get to around 11.5 (state qualifying time).  The next meet was a qualifying meet at Box Elder, the 4x100 team he is on qualified for state and he ran a 11.64 in the 100.  He was clocked in at 11.25 at the Bear River meet but we are pretty dang sure their timer was off :)  and it wasn't a qualifying meet.  He had a meet in Carbon County which is about 3 hrs away, Bob was out of town, I wasn't driving that far to watch 11 seconds of anything. That morning at 5:00 a.m. he couldn't find his track shoes so he went without them (yes there was tension in the car all the way to the bus). At this track meet with borrowed shoes he ran a 11.42, took 2nd place, and qualified for state.
Fast forward to today.....he is qualified to run at state in 4 events (100 M - 4x100 relay - Medley Relay- 200 M) he runs the first leg in the relays. 
This Thursday the Stallion Track Team was crowned the Region 11 Champions. Hudson could not have done better, he was the only freshman make it to the finals and he just about beat this FAST senior from Ogden.  Hudson took 2nd in the 100M, 3rd in the 200M (his 4th time running it) his 4x100 team took 2nd and his medley relay team took 1st. 
This weekend is State.....hopefully I will be able to get it recorded like the BYU invitational meet.  In the video he was racing against all the kids in Utah 3A-5A.  He placed 21st in the 100 M and was the only freshman in the top 150.  I don't know what place he was in the 200 but it was at this meet he qualified for state with a 22.92 (third time running it). 
We are very proud of Hudson.....but I would still rather watch an hour of him on the soccer field than a total of a little over a minuet on the track......maybe next year! ;)


Good Luck Stallions!
