This was an incredible week on many levels! One of my long-standing goals has been to achieve an NCAA auto qualifier in the weight, and I got it--65-7.5 (along with a seasonal-best auto in the shot--55-5).  I complain a lot about going to Indiana...hey, I'm a Californian going to school in Florida, and I don't do snow...but I seem to have good meets up there every year.

In other news this week, SMU (where I attended and competed as a freshman) decided to cut the men's track and field team! They added equestrian instead?  What's with that? I'm sure my former teammates will end up in good programs, but it's really sad.  I know first-hand how hard it is to transfer. 

This was definitely a week for shocking news.  My first high school coach was arrested for having a relationship with one of his students.  When I transferred out of his program in the middle of high school, I really got roasted by T&F people who thought I had left a great throws program because I was some kind of "problem athlete" with an "interfering father," etc. etc. etc.  We heard it all.  Everybody's innocent until proven guilty, but my sympathies and support go to the girl involved. She's being very brave, and I'm proud of her.
