Friday, the TigerHawks finished fourth in the very rugged Bob Sage Relays in Waverly.

While the TigerHawks won nine medals, it was their depth that gave them an 18-point edge over runner-up Jesup.

When Braidyn Buhrow burst out of the starting blocks in the 50-meter hurdle at last year’s Regional Meet at Edgewood-Colesburg, she had her eyes set on a State Track Meet berth.

Her eyes closed on any hopes of making the state tournament; however, as she tripped over the third hurdle. 

The emotional pain she experienced from the failure and disappointment is one many athletes understand. She had been so close, just needing to win the meet, which she had a good chance of doing, in order to appear at Drake Stadium just two weeks later.
