Covered in rain, yes, that describes the meet fairly good. You guys and gals are tough as nails! All I can say is that when Mrs Nelson and I showed up at the meet, I said to myself, I just want to go home. The rain was like ice, and burned right through to the bone. As we came upon the varsity girls, we heard Ally call out "Mom, Dad!", and we saw the varsity girls standing in the rain, with Coach Sarvis all huddled together. Tough as Nails, and covered in rain they were.

I tell you gang, I don't know how any of you did it, but you did an awesome job! It was rainy, cold, bitter, but you gave it your all and kept on fighting it on just like a Perry Pirate Harrier would.

I know in my heart and soul, you all made your parents proud, your teammates proud, your coaches proud, and all of Perry Proud.

"Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're a lion or gazelle - when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."
