Congrats to Baby Sasquatch at the Lakeview District Meet last week.
He ran in 4 events and advanced to the Regional Meet in all 4 races.

His first event was the 4×800 on Thursday, and his team took 3rd overall.
Baby Sasquatch was the anchor for the relay team and was in 5th place when he got the baton.
He was able to move up into 3rd place to secure a spot for the regional meet for him and his teammates.
(top 4 spots in each race advance)
Then he also ran the 800 and 4×400 pre-lims on Thursday and qualified for finals on Saturday.

Saturday his first event was the 1600.
The race ended up being a battle between Drake Sulzer from Woodridge and Baby Sasquatch.
With 150 to go Baby Sasquatch moved up on the outside on the far turn and then took the lead coming off the turn heading down the front stretch for the finish line.
With 40 meters to go Sulzer surged back, but Baby Sasquatch was able to get the lead back in the final meters of the race to win by 0.03 of a second in 4:28.41 to Sulzer’s 4:28.44.

On to the 800 where Ryan Adams from CVCA took the early lead and everybody else was left chasing.
Baby Sasquatch was able to take 2nd place over Noah Lebay in 2:00.59 to Adams 1:58.80 and Lebay was 0.30 back with a 2:00.89 effort.

Last was the 4×400 where Baby Sasquatch was in the 3rd position on the team.
The Bulldogs were able to get 2nd place just ahead of a hard charging team from CVCA.
Liberty won the 4×400 with a stadium record time of 3:23.06, Lakeview ran 3:28.66, and CVCA finished in 3:29.11.

This weeks regional will take place in Bedford on the same schedule as last weeks meet, with Pre-lims on Thursday and then Finals on Saturday.

    Great job! I saw the 1600 times in the paper and thought wow, that was a close race. Good to hear the blow by blow.
