Spring Break - ASU

With the weather as great as its been here in Minnesota, the last thing I've wanted to do is sit at the computer and write on the blog! That said, here are some delayed updates and highlights from our spring trip to ASU.

We had a great week in Tempe. The weather was perfect. We got some good training in from Wednesday-Friday... with a solid meet on Saturday. Our flight didn't leave until a little later on Sunday, so we were able to get some work in before our departure, even on our last day.

As far as the meet:

Micah Hegerle had an outstanding opening meet. Micah broke the freshman record in the hammer throw with his 192'10 throw. The previous record was 181'-something by yours truly. Hopefully Micah will continue to wipe me from the record book! He then went on to his a 171' throw in the discus. A great start.

David Pachuta opened up his outdoor season strong with a 1:50.52 win in the 800m. Travis Burkstrand also put down a solid 3:51.32. Ben Peterson knocked out another 17'+ day in the pole vault.

With all the training during the week the results weren't eye popping, but the the time was well spent.

We're off to Arizona again this weekend, this time to University of Arizona for the Jim Click Shootout.
