After four short practices over the course of the past couple of weeks, Forza Athletics thrower Savannah Cook opened her season at the 2016 USATF Niagara Indoor Track & Field Championships.
The calm before the storm.
Women's weight got the throwing events started. A majority of the women competing were unattached, with a few collegiate athletes, and one high school thrower. Our goal for the meet was to have fun, get some good marks, and build upon what we have been working on over the course of the past couple of weeks.
Savannah started out a little off balanced, not being patient with her right foot. As you can see through a couple of her throws, she does not allow her right foot come open up to the sector, thus causing some errant throws.
Our wins for the meet were:
I'm very proud of Savannah and what she was able to accomplish in her first meet of the 2016-17 season. I look forward to coaching and mentoring Savannah through the remainder of this indoor and outdoor seasons.
Thank you for reading!
