Mira Costa Track and Field February highlights!
One Week, Two Meets!
The Costa MCHS Track Team participated in two meets this past week. Thursday, Feb 26 was a Home Meet vs SAMO. On Saturday, Feb 29, the athletes traveled to Mission Viejo to compete in an all-day meet hosted by Trabuco Hills High School. Both meet results can be viewed via the links. Congratulations to many of the Costa athletes who set Personal Records in these events.
FOCUS ON: Long Jumps
The long jump is an athlete’s combined speed, strength and agility in an attempt to leap as far as possible from a take off point. The jumper begins their approach run and accelerates to reach maximum speed at takeoff while gauging their stride to arrive with one foot on and as near as possible to the edge of the board. The legs are brought together for landing, and, since the length of the jump is measured from the edge of the takeoff board to the nearest mark in the landing area surface made by any part of the body, the jumper attempts to fall forward.
Congratulations to the recent Long Jump winners and PR holders at the SAMO and Trabuco Hills High School Track Meets!
