Track and Field
I always enjoy spending the day outside shooting track and field events. This weekend was one of those times with the state track and field meet happening down in Austin. And to add more excitement to the trip, New Deal won both the boy’s and girl’s team trophies. Anyways, here’s a fraction of the pictures I took from the three-day event.
Thursday, we woke up at the crack of dawn to take Carlos to Franklin Barbecue. The field events didn’t start until late in the afternoon. Which allowed him time to sit in line all day for the brisket, ribs and turkey. We also went downtown for some Voodoo Donuts. Even though the trip was work focused, I was able to get about 15 rolls of film developed at Holland Photo Imaging. So, you can expect to see more about those photos when I finish scanning the pictures.
Right as the field events were about to begin, lightning struck in the area. Eventually causing an hour or so delay to the day.
Student-athletes from four area schools competed against each other in the District 4-5A Track and Field Meet with hopes to move on to next weekend’s area meet. There were several weather delays throughout the day caused by lightning in the area. And the final relay events took place in the rain after the thunderstorms dissipated.
