Our fourth meet is now history. We were technically the hosts of the meet, but that only involved us bringing stopwatches. It was a pretty good race. The kids finished pretty much how we expected them to. We raced at the same park a couple weeks ago on the same course. The boys did a pretty good job, and they had a good time, but they are not really improving much. My assistant coach and I were talking about this on the bus ride back to school. These guys have a lot of potential, and if they would put in the effort they could be really good. But they are young and want to have fun, and are not motivated enough to do more than what is necessary to get through practice. It is hard with such a small team. Hopefully, as they grow and mature, the motivation will be there and they will still be able to have fun.
