Girls are XC!
Ready to Run!
Elizabeth and her coaches
Prayer before the race
Let's go win a race and boy do we look XC with our breathe right nose strips on! Complements of Coach Rosendo
Good luck hugs....the little dark headed girl on the right bottom corner of the pic is Malia Cali and she has won the Heisman trophy for Louisiana and is now in the top six finalist for the nation. They are flying her to New York and will announce the winner in several weeks. There were 56,000 applicants and she is in the top six! Awesome girl not only in sports but in every catagory of life!
They are off......only three miles to go.....Elizabeth looks determined
This is my favorite photo out of all the pics I took! The other two girls are Carmen and Jordyn; both Juniors with Elizabeth.....both great runners. Carmen placed second in state, behind Malia (who was first and cinched her four year streak of being first in state four years in a row); Jordyn came in 7th and Elizabeth was 19th.....ironic that they are in that order in the pic! You can see the concentration on their faces!
Elizabeth was at the end of the race here and the end of her rope! At this point her lungs are killing her but she found a bit of strength to kick it in. It is so painful to watch her and when I look at these pictures, I am sooo glad this season is over!
