Why? That's when 5ks begin! I was there and I understand about over 300 more were too! There were tabb athletes (try the entire girls soccer team), coaches, faculty, parents, and even just regular joes with no connection with the school. It was a great turn out and a great 5k.
I don't look that bad! I had my hand band, Marines shirt (I'm Marines strong!), and new shoes. All that helped finish at 56:24. I walked the whole thing and at the end was actually categorized in the men 20-29 runners not walkers. I was 8th in that, but if I was put in the walkers I would be 5th. It doesn't matter. It doesn't change my time. I know Coach Brown is reading this, so I have to talk good....but seriously the Tabb May 5k is a fun time. It's not competative. Everyone just does it for fun (I think.) and it was fun, so that's good! I know many well-known Tabb athletes such Blake Fikenhauer and Bri Jasenak finished on top of their age group....I think Jasenak finished like first or second for women overall. It would be good f I had the names of all who finished in the top of their age groups...but that's a lot names! A good job to everyone! Everyone gets a medal of accomplishment on the inside. I have a new goal of 50 minutes for next year. My training paid off, but now I need to continue. I hope you join me. No ONE was in the women 70-over category...next year, c'mon mom, free medal....I'm in trouble! Anyway, despite being up at 7 am on a Saturday it was a fun time and great way to welcome May!
THE BALL GAMES
Baseball and softball played at Smithfield yesterday. I have more info on softball than baseball, so let's start with softball for once! Things are taking place again for Tabb softball! The streak is starting up again for them! They won 13 to 4! Kayla St John for MVP of the BRD. I'm starting the campaign now! Every time this team wins she pitches. She's de facto of the team. They form like Voltron and she's the head....it's just like the Wu! St John also went 4-4, Burnette the beamer went 4-5, Rockin' Rue went 3-5 with a RBI, Joye went 2-4, Mur the Blur with 1-4 with a HR and 4 RBI and all that equals a tabb win! You all thought tabb softball was hot for like a week and done, but you were wrong! A lesson has been learned, Tabb softball is never of teir game...speaking of which...I neeed to attend one...I'll promise you'll see next week...or the next...or...I'll make it...just keep winning!
I don't have as much info on baseball. They won 17 to 2, so this really made up for the 1-0 win last...they got revenge for a win! I don't know who all scored, but with the score being 17...like the whole team did! Corbett added to his MVP resume' with 7 strikeouts and 2 hits. So another Tabb baseball win...what else is new? The York game is coming up this week, so...revenge for that is coming soon...20 to 2. The team is just going put up double digits for the rest of the season. They;re taking the district back! Stay tuned to see this brigade! Good job to baseball and softball for making the games only last 5 innings! Let's keep it that way!
ONE FOR TWO
I only have the girls results. They are the lucky ones. Boys were only in Poquoson...it wasn't too far...but I only got the gals...sorry! They won! 5 to 4! It was pretty close as you can see. For singls Haase defeated her opponent 6-0. Hogge won 6-0. Hendron won 6-0. Yes 3 Hs winning 6-0, just a coincidence! To break the trend another Hartman won 6-0. For doubles Haase-Hogge (the double H) won together 8-0...and all that was about it. I'll be nice and say the boys won too! It was a 5-4 win, a close match likes that just makes you want make a tennis match!....I'll make one of those matches too! Good job to both...even though I only actually know one score...still good job beating Poquoson...like it was hard!
Today there is a girls lacrosse game this evening 5:30-7:00. What else is there to do on a Saturday evening? They take on Maury...no there will be no paternity tests at the game! We can take on this team easily...they don't got bourgeois! Stefen Wisniewski was drafted to the Raiders...guess which team is the Wiz Kids's favorite team now? His cousin plays for them and his uncle is a coach as well...so I hate the team even more now...hey this blog could have connection to famous football players...wait no one famous plays for the Raiders! There is still no turn-up of Popcorn! See what marriage does to you...am I right?...Okay I'm gone...I'm tired! Bye!
Peace be with you.
