Team Bird Elite youth running club closed out it’s Indoor Track season at the University of Kentucky HS Invitational, with Paige Boatright of New Haven HS running a personal record performance for a full 2 mile run Saturday. Paige ran a 11:50.2 in the race which included eight plus different states in this high caliber meet. Paige was 10th out of 32 starters in the women’s two mile. Several universities including Clemson, U of Kentucky, Tulane, Arkansas, U Miami were a few asking questions about Paige. “It is always exciting to discuss our athlete’s to colleges and universities” said Coach Bird. “however Paige being a sophomore cannot directly talked to the schools”, Coach remarked. One purpose on these big meets is simply get their name in front of some schools.
Paige was a little scared with having, such a large group on the indoor 291 meter track. We mapped a tactical start to allow her to get in a rhythm with her race and not get box inside on the curve. Paige “coach my heal got step on twice at the start”. Her first mile was a 5:39.8 basically a personal record for her 1600 time. That was right on for our sub 11:30 goals for this meet. However, she found herself running alone between a lead and second pack of women, this was a mistake, slowing her pace. As we entered in the last critical 800 meters of the race Paige made a move to catch some competitors, passing 4 runners in the last lap with the fastest we have seen her in final meters.
TBE is a youth running club open to 8 to 18 years, we run cross country and track & field, open to any student/athletes who are looking for year around competition.
