And just like that, the 2020-21 Randolph Indoor Track & Field season is over. The Raiders had very lofty goals going into the state championships, had a plan on how to execute, they just came up a little short in the end. The girls finished 3rd, behind Brewbaker Tech High School (the winner) and our friendly in town rival, Whitesburg Christian Academy (runner-up). The girls were just 9 points behind Whitesburg CA. The boys finished a strong 7th place, with UMS Wright winning the state championship. The boys finished just behind (8 points) our other friendly in town rival, St. John Paul II Catholic High.
It was an amazing state championship meet and even more amazing season. Regardless of trophies at the end of the season or not, we coaches just feel so blessed that we had the ability to work with our kids this season. We also feel very blessed to have had a season at all. There are so many states that due to COVID restrictions, were not allowed to compete this year. We preach to our kids to not take opportunities for granted and to compete very chance they get. This season wasn’t normal, and hopefully we will have something that somewhat resembles normal next year. Regardless, we know our Raiders will rise to the occasion when that time comes!
Thank you to our seniors, Sophia White, Emma Hudson, Anahita Maleknia, Drew Stanley, and Kelly Hay! You all have no idea how much of a legacy you left for those that are coming behind you. We are all very proud of you and the coaches feel very blessed to have had the chance to work with you. We love you all!
Best of luck to those moving onto their spring sports! Outdoor track & field begins this Monday, February 8th.
