The boys score was Pirates 23 to Lindbergh 103. For the girls it was Pirates 34 to Lindbergh 109. Kennedy was competing against Foster at the same event. There are a lot of injured Pirates right now, so the team has gotten pretty small. It was cold and wet during this meet, so it was a good one to miss. I got pretty wet taking these pictures (click images to see larger versions/slideshow): chase 4 pole-3 pre-race-talk relay-2 relay-4 relay-5 This week there was a Lady Pirate pole vaulter. It is special because there is not a place to practice pole vaulting at Highline right now. The Booster Club is working on earning money to get a pole vault place at Highline. A neat story I learned about one of the Pirate coaches is he still comes to every meet to help the Pirates even though he is really sick right now. I always see him talking to the sprinters and the hurdlers before and after races. He is always trying to get them to stretch more. Kelvin (Herbruger), who got a personal record in the mile, was always one step behind Kennedy runner, Lincoln (Marino), in the long distance races. The 4×100 relays happened during and right after a downpour. The Lady Pirates beat Lindbergh and the boys lost to them. The next meet is against Foster at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 30 at Renton Memorial Stadium.
