USATF National Qualifiers!
At the USATF Region 4 championships this weekend, brothers Brandon and Davis Tardif both qualified (top 5 finish) for the national championships in their respective age divisions in the 2000m steeplechase (yes, the one with the water jump and [almost] insurmountable barriers).  Congratulations!
  • 17-18, 2nd place, Brandon Tardif, 7:02.23
  • 15-16, 3rd place, Davis Tardif, 7:21.40
Both Brandon and Davis will be competing in the national championships in Greensboro, North Carolina, on Thursday, July 25, at 2:30 pm.  Good luck!

USATF Region 4 Championships
In addition to Brandon and Davis, we had two other Alpha Crush athletes who competed this weekend.

Heidi Heppner, in the 8 & under girls, had a strong showing in both the 800m on Friday and 1500m on Sunday.
  • 800m, 8 & under girls, 13th place, 3:26.63
  • 1500m, 6th place, 6:31.65 (just missed qualifying for nationals by 12.4 seconds!)
Timmy Cole, in the 8 & under boys, set a new personal best in the 1500m.  As Timmy would say, a new "high score!"
  • 1500m, 9th place, 6:09.12 (personal best by 3.73 seconds)
