Crazy way to win it but a win is a win.
Usually that kind of break goes against us (popfly in Omaha). I’ll take this one!
Lexi has to be the happiest girl on the team. I believe this is the only meet in her unbelievable career that she didn’t score. Tori was fantastic and all the other teammates held her up. Very happy for the team especially for Lexi. Werner and the four girls in the last relay were amazing when the championship was on the line.
Werner ran out of her mind. If she doesn’t score, we lose even though SC dropped the stick (they picked it up and finished eighth for 1 point).
Werner was very impressive. I’m convinced that she was running for the team as much as she was running for herself.
USC runner Anna Cockrell had just won the 400M Hurdles in one of the best times in the world this year and had put maximum effort into it. I didn’t expect her to falter like that, but I figured she was going to tighten up in the last 100M. She tightened up even earlier.
You are right in that we would have beaten USC even if Anna hadn’t faltered.
