Another 28 year old Sub-district meet Record broken by the MaseMan

Mason sets a 152.46 time in the 800m at Sub-districts this past week. Another smooth and graceful race with Nathan Seely riding Mason's heels for almost the whole race.

Way to go Dude! I know he has been having a rough time with his injury to his leg so imagine my surprise and pride at how he was able to push this out for a win! I know once he is at his peak training point he will be one to be reckoned with. Watch out folks!

Sorry for the delays in posts, I have been having some hard times with a bug myself! I have a couple more video's for Districts that Mason ran yesterday, but, we have to have them uploaded to disc so I can post. He won the 1600m on Wednesday and the 800m on Friday. Unfortunatly there was a "Bizarre" ending in the 4x400 that DQ'd Sehome from running it at State. Here is the partial Article that was in the paper: Clink on the link below and you can see the whole article and comments from the puplic:

PREP TRACK: Bizarre events cost Sehome

On one hand: Sehome, Bellingham, Lynden, Blaine and Mount Baker each had athletes who performed as well as expected, and in some cases much better than expected.
On the other hand, the meet ended on a note that was part surreal, part disappointing and mostly confusing.
t was an ending that eventually cost Sehome the boys’ district team title.
During the second leg of the boys’ 4x400 relay — the meet’s final event — after the 100- meter mark of the leg, the top six runners cut from their respective lanes to the inside.
About 10 yards later, Lynden’s Nathan Seely took a nasty fall and was unable to find his baton for several seconds while each of the other teams stormed by.
By the time Seely got back to full speed, the Lions were a good 30 meters behind, far too much to make up on the last two legs.
Sehome, behind blistering legs by Colin Flynn and anchor Mason McHenry, won easily. But
officials huddled right away, and talk on the field was that Sehome was disqualified and the race would be run again without the Mariners.
McHenry won the 800-meter run in 1:52.66 to go with his victory in the 1,600 on Wednesday.

So sad, but, stuff happens and you got to roll with the punches.

Keep an eye out for another update of more video's from this Friday. The State meet is next Friday and Saturday at Tacoma. I am looking forward to this! It is always a thrill and we will be sure to share it with you all with video and pictures! Can't wait!
