Kelsey and Natasha

One last track post - for our last day at nationals.
Two of the Biola's girls ran in the final events.
Kelsey ran the steeple chase...
She came in 6th - qualifying for an 'All American Award'-Way to end your college running career Kelsey!!
Natasha is a multi-event competitor. She runs the 800, some hurdles, competes in the pentathlon, long jumps and high jumps. She sort of does what coach has her do...but she shines in the jumps and the pentathlon.Natasha and Erika have been room-mates since their freshman year of college. They have spent lots of time together and have gotten to know each other well. Natasha is an incredible athlete ~ yet what I like about her is that she is so humble. She never brags about her success nor talks highly of herself. She cares about others and wants to see others succeed also.I love watching her do the high jump - I think she can jump over me...!Coach and Natasha. He told me once that an athlete like this only comes along once in a blue moon. She won the high jump and the pentathlon (3rd time in a row). I told you she was awesome! You go girl!

Keep an eye out for her - she has been picked up by the Canadian Olympic coach. She is from Canada and we will be watching for her in London 2012!

It's been so much fun to see all of these athletes compete. Sure gonna miss this
