Kyle's 4 by 800 Relay team took 3rd place at the D1 State Meet on Saturday, February 20th with a time of 8:09.29. Each member shaved at least 2 seconds off their previous time and was 12 seconds faster than they were at Dual County League race. The team moves on to the All State Meet (D1-4), Friday February 26th and qualified for Nationals which will take place on Saturday, March 13th here in Boston. Katie Knott even showed up to cheer him on.

Kyle ran the 4 by 800 meters relay at the Dual County League Championships on Saturday, February 13th. He was the 2nd leg and his team was in third place when he took the baton. He was able to take the lead and his team won with a time of 8.21.74 which broke the Dual County League record time. He now will get to run at the State Division 1 race this coming Saturday.
Katie Knott is out here in Boston (actually Fort Devins) for 7 weeks. She stopped by for dinner on Tuesday, February 9th. She drove ahead of the upcoming snow storm which ended up only dumping about 2 inches. (Over a foot was predicted.) We hope to see her when she has free time and show her some of New England, although this is not the best time of the year.
