POLAND – For the 26th Annual Polish Race on Saturday afternoon, the weather was a one-off event to force the athletes to fill the Dave Pavlanski Stadium.
On Saturday afternoon, the last day of April, more than 20 schools gathered for intense competition, and the districts were getting closer and closer.
Finding a new personal best performer is hard enough, but throw in a few PR? All of this was a long day at work for MacDonald Jr. Megan Hebel, who started at 11:10.02 a.m. at 3200 and was first at 1600 with 5:15.97.
“I really tried and did PR today (saw Maggie Hubble from Salem) and used it to finish. If it weren’t for this competition, there would be a war “ “The competition is definitely rewarding, especially since all the girls here are very positive and they all encourage each other and really push you into PR,” Hebel said.
“For me, I have to go with that girl, I have to go with her, and if I can get past her, I have to go, so that’s my strategy.”
Hebel missed about a week of the season struggling with plantar fasciitis, and the little Blue Devils were able to work overtime, riding a bike and using cross-training to stay active.
It was a long afternoon of 3,200 m running very early in the meeting on Saturday, then we had to wait a few hours for 1600 m and then wait for 4 × 400 again.
To say that he is oppressed is to underestimate him.
“I love listening to music and just being with my band, all kinds of music, just everything that motivates you, just everything that keeps you there, my teammates and coaches are very good at keeping us on the right track.” Hebel said.
As he crossed the finish line on Saturday afternoon, Blake Baker of Canfield, looking at the 1,600-foot-tall boy, shone brightly between him and the rest of the group. Many of his colleagues came to Cardinal, Wind and Gas’s second year to congratulate him on his new personal level of excellence with many punches and smiles around the world for the best.
The owner of 4: 28.57 was about seven seconds faster than the second and was the bull’s eye for the Canfield mid-range group, which hit all the cylinders after a big improvement in the start.
“It helps my mentality during the race and gives me more confidence because I feel like I’m controlling the race the way I want to and I don’t let anyone else drive.” Baker said. “It’s very difficult to drive, but I did a good job today.
“Last year I took third place (in the game), but this year I feel more competitive. I am very happy to see the victory. My father always told me that I was the strongest man on the track and I do not agree with that at all, but I think I am a good mental rider, and it definitely helps the race.
Normally, Baker would like to train with the team, but last week’s strike meant he had to find time to run alone before the big game.
It was a change, but it was a success.
“I didn’t have a fast tempo, so I didn’t have anyone to tell me when I should train, so I tried to do it myself based on my efforts.” Baker said. “I love our team, we won regional teams last year, it’s a garden that no one else has because I’m part of a family in Canfield.”

Kylie Carlisle, a second-year student from Salem, did not have the privilege of attending the welcoming meeting, which previously impressed people like Lizzie Schuntz and Kela Jamison.
Defeating the former best discus thrower by more than 10 feet and winning the race 121-02, Quaker expressed his biggest scene so far.
“I feel great, it’s time to shine, because both girls are gone and I have to fill their shoes and follow in their footsteps.” Carlisle said.
After scoring the winning goal in one of his last shots, Carlisle threw the disc into the sector and finally felt he could throw in the more comfortable air after a tiring spring.
“I felt like I was taken out, it felt really good and I was waiting for the label, but I knew I was PRed” Carlisle said. “It helps me focus, I can’t just go in there, I can’t seem to throw everything, I have to try to focus, and it helps me keep the adrenaline flowing.
I missed a lot of sports last summer, it helped me, but I spent a long season in basketball, so after the other girls in the reps, my coach told me that the reason I haven’t missed yet is the lack of repetitions, but it’s starting to show that I just have to. I continue to grind it. “
