On another note, Victoria came in first again at this weeks Cross Country meet. There was a school this Saturday that did not run in the last meet. They had a good runner. Victoria let her take the lead and stayed right behind her the first part of the race. Early in the 2nd mile, Victoria went in front, but the girl sprinted to get the lead. Victoria decided to let her keep the lead until the last hill, which is shortly before the finish. When Victoria was in the final sprint to the finish, she was once again, all by herself. The times were much slower this week with 2 hills & going through the sand twice & a lot more wind, but she still finished at 13:25. She doesn't get to run CYO again, until the final meet. Hopefully, she can come back to win :)
Coming in all by herself :)
Final sprint to the finish.
Maddy's team did well on Saturday with a 5-0 win. I was able to see a little of the first half and all the second half of the game. Victoria & I came straight from Cross Country in Oregon. She played really well on defense and had to cover for another player who is not too strong. The other team parents would get really excited thinking they were going to score & then Maddy would come across and clear out the ball. Here are a couple of photos :)
Fumble recovery. Yes, he did fall on it, but I didn't get the picture :(

Here is my take on the sketch.

On another note, Victoria had her first soccer tournament of the season. It's a new team that was formed by taking the most dedicated players from 2 teams and combining the players to make a select team. She is playing mainly tournaments & in the State B league, so the competition is harder than what they have faced in the past. The good news....Champions!!! They won 2 games & tied 2 games, but that was enough. They played the same team twice on Sunday. The first time we played them, it was a 2-2 tie. Their coach told them if they play their game they should beat this team 4-0, well the final game we won 3-0, so he was right on target. They were actually playing in a U14/U15 age bracket with half U13 & half U14 players, so I would say they did great. I can't wait to see how they grow as a team the next couple of months. Some of the girls saw the spray paint in the tent at the beginning of the tournament & their coach agreed if they won they could spray paint his hair, so yes they all have purple hair!!
