Section Champion~Brooke Holt!

Brooke's goal this season was to be the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Champion. She has worked tirelessly for the past year, working out 6 days a week, sometimes double days, which included biking up Sierra College 8 times in a row and many days that occasionally end with lifting weights with dad at the gym. She has been focused, determined and disciplined, sacrificing so much in order to reach her goal. So it all came down to the race today. There were 4 girls that were near the top. Anyone of them were within reach of winning the race. But I've never seen Brooke so determined and confident! It was incredibly hot today for this time of the year. Many of the runners from the previous races had suffered heat exhaustion. The race was delayed 30 minutes, so her race was during the hottest time of the day. Brooke took an early lead and kept it until the very end. She won with a time of 19:08 and qualified for the state meet held in Fresno in 2 weeks. Yay Brooke! We are so proud of you!
