FEAST Track and Field: Off Season Workouts

Many of our track athletes participate in fall sports which helps maintain conditioning for the spring track season, as well as developing other skills. In Spring, participating in track builds speed, strength and endurance for the fall sports; what a good, healthy balance! In fact, most professional athletes participated in multiple sports during their high school years!

FEAST Varsity Girls are State Champs for 13th Consecutive Season!

The FEAST Track and Field team was very successful at the State Homeschool Track Meet on April 29-30 at Tomball HS. With a huge turnout, the competition was fierce in all age groups. FEAST Varsity girls were once again State Meet champions for the 13th consecutive season and won by a healthy margin of 28 points over the 2nd place team.  

The Varsity Girls 4×100 team of Emily Foster, Natalie Nelson, Tori Neeley, and Mikayla Kidney broke the school record for the third time this season with a 50.71 time. Mikayla was the high point athlete in the Varsity Girls division scoring 34 points with 1st place in the 100m, discus, 4×100, 4×200 plus a 4th place finish in the javelin. Micah DiGangi was another Varsity girl scoring machine as she racked up 32 points with wins in the long jump, and 4×200, 2nd in the 300 hurdles and triple jump, and 3rd in the 4×400.

FEAST JV Boys, 14U Boys, 12U Girls, 10U Boys, and 10U Girls were also Meet Champions in their divisions at State! The 14U Boys were especially dominant in their division, winning by 99 points! JV Girls finished in 2nd and just two points out of first place. The 12U Boys also finished 2nd, Varsity boys finished a close 3rd (six points behind first) and the 14U girls also finished in 3rd place. FEAST had top 3 finishes in all age divisions. Micah Diaz was the high-point athlete for 14U Boys and Spencer Cox was the high-point athlete for 10U Boys.

Our end-of-season fellowship was held on May 9 and was a bittersweet time as everyone said their farewells to our 11 senior athletes. Congratulations to these graduating seniors! Approximately 300 athletes and family members attended this final wrap-up to celebrate the FEAST Track’s 2022 season.

We give thanks to everyone who supported FEAST and our athletes. Each athlete worked hard, improved throughout the season and most everyone set a new PR! FEAST Track is grateful for this season and our volunteers, but we are most grateful for the Lord and Savior Jesus. Our God above gave us the strength to finish each race and practice with everything we had, even when we are hurting. We lean on God to give us strength and give all the glory to Him. As written in Psalms 50:23, “The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me; to one who orders his way rightly I will show the salvation of God!” We will continue to give God the glory and praise Him for His saving grace.

FEAST Track Teams: Meet Champs at Multiple Meets!

The FEAST Track and Field teams have been absolutely crushing it this season and have just a few meets left before the season ends. Both High School and Middle School had amazing meets in April with some incredible wins! We are proud of all the athletes in our program who give it all they have to hit new PR’s (personal records) and we anticipate will complete amazing at state! Watch the interview of Loghan Gonzalez, winner of the 3200!

FEAST High School Teams and Middle School Teams have had some fantastic meets with the High School Varsity Girls 4×100 team breaking the FEAST school record with a time of 51.26 seconds at Cornerstone Meet #2. This beat the old record by 0.19 seconds! The Varsity Girls were also the Meet Champions. Just a week later, at the FEAST High School Patriot Invitational Meet, the Varsity Girls 4×100 team broke their school record again with a time of 50.91! This talented foursome is composed of sophomore Emily Foster, senior Natalie Nelson, sophomore Tori Neeley, and is anchored by freshman, Mikayla Kidney (shown left to right). See this talented foursome’s interview!

At the Wimberley High School Meet, the FEAST Varsity teams beat several large (4A-5A) public school teams! FEAST Boys and Girls Varsity each placed 9th out of 16 teams.  At the FEAST Patriot Invitational, both the JV Girls and Varsity Girls were the Meet Champions! Our JV and Varsity Boys finished strong in 4th and 5th, respectively, out of 17 schools.

The FEAST Middle School teams were also incredible in their performance at their second Cornerstone meet:  5/6 grade girls, 5/6 grade boys, and 7/8 grade Boys were Meet Team Champions. At the FEAST MS Patriot Invitational, our 5/6 grade girls and 7/8 grade boys were again, Meet Team Champions!

Other meet results this past month include the La Vernia Middle School Meet where the MS team recorded 37 PRs (personal records). At the St. Mary’s Hall MS Meet, FEAST MS teams were the Meet Champions in all four divisions!

Our season is finishing soon with just a couple more meets left for both High School and Middle School. The last regular season High School meet is on April 14 and the last Middle School meet is the ISAL district championship on April 20.  Then the Homeschool State Meet will be held on April 29 and 30 at Tomball High School.

With more records to break, the FEAST Patriots are training hard to set more amazing PR’s and to compete extremely well in the following meets to come! We thank everyone who has helped the track and field team this season – we really appreciate you! We are very grateful for our Lord and Savior Jesus and God for allowing us to have such an amazing season! As it says in Hebrews 12:28-29,”Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire.” We are thankful for our God and all He has done for us!

FEAST Track’s Patriot Invitational Hosts Middle School and High Schools

Over 800 athletes competed in the FEAST High School Patriot Invitational Meet on April 8. This was followed the next morning with the FEAST Middle School Meet where over 700 athletes competed. A lot of hard work by a lot of volunteers along with the timing contractor made these two meets very well run. Money raised at these meets will cover team expenses this year and allow FEAST to keep track season registration fees at only $75/athlete for 2022-23. There are many ways to measure success, but this meet wasn’t about the money or even all the hard work, it was the joy of watching young athletes compete and families sharing a beautiful day and experience.

Texas MileSplit attended the FEAST HS Invitational and they posted videos of all the running races and interviews with most of the event winners including FEAST sophomore Loghan Gonzalez, the 3200m winner and the Varsity Girls 4×100 team. Watch the excitement here!

April 2022
Track and Field – A Season of Success with Perseverance and Faith!

The FEAST Team is looking fantastic with the High School and Middle School teams doing extremely well at their meets! We returned to practice at Wheatley Heights Sports Complex so the hurdle and field events could resume training in their respective events again.

At our first HS meet, FEAST JV Girls were the meet champions in their division while Varsity Girls and Boys were runners-up out of eight teams participating! 

The High School teams then swept the Cornerstone meet on March 3rd by a huge margin with JV Boys, JV Girls, Varsity Boys, and Varsity Girls all winning first in their divisions. At the  Cornerstone middle school track meet, our 7th/8th grade boys won their meet with almost all of the runners getting some great PRs! Other HS meets in March were at Antonian, Wimberley, and Cornerstone again. March MS meets were at La Vernia for a practice meet and Cornerstone again as well.

FEAST will host our annual HS Patriot Invitational meet on April 8 and our MS meet on April 9, both at Wheatley Heights Sports Complex. Come support our athletes!With the FEAST athletes halfway through the season and looking stronger than ever we ask that you continue to pray for the athletes to avoid injury and to persevere onward and set more PRs! The only reason any of this is happening is because of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and God! We are blessed by God to be back at Wheatley Heights Sports Complex. We are so thankful for all that He has done for the team! “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.”  Proverbs 3:5-6 We will continue to trust our God even through the rainiest storms!

FEAST Track athletes practice every Monday and Wednesday at Wheatley Heights Sports Complex.  Practices start with a devotion followed by the recognition of athletes who beat their personal record (PR) at the previous meet.  Next, athletes warmup and breakout to their event specific training group.  The second half of practice has athletes working on handoffs or perhaps working on a second event.  Practice finishes with muscle fitness to enhance core body strength.   With 152 athletes, 8 coaches, 3 graduate helpers and numerous parent helpers, practices are very busy with multiple things happening at the same time.

As our athlete’s hearts start pumping harder as they get closer and closer to race day, and as they stay warm in their FEAST hoodies and FEAST warm-up jackets, we always make sure to thank God for allowing us to practice and for allowing us to run, jump and throw this season. We pray for each runner to do their best and get an amazing PR this season and to always give thanks to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

Psalm 46:1-3 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

February 2022
Track and Field Season is about to Start for FEAST Runners!

After an amazing season last year, our athletes are ready to destroy their PR’s and set some new records with meets starting on February 19. The athletes for FEAST Homeschool are looking forward to breaking some more records in 2022! In 2021, FEAST Middle School girls broke a 14-year-old 4×400 record with a time of 4:25.46 set by Claire Bettencourt, Enola Mangelson, Suraiya Anderson, and Liberty Gould (shown).

Our High School girls broke multiple records, including the 400m by Lauren Bettencourt with a time of 60.54, the 3200m by KayCee Keller with a time of 10:51, and a pole vault record by Grace Bettencourt with a jump of 10.0feet! Each of the FEAST athletes work as hard as they can, putting their heart, sweat, and tears into every race and event they do to break their personal records.

With adrenaline and excitement for the first meet rushing through the FEAST Patriots, we put all our trust in God and lean on Him as the time of competition comes for the athletes to perform our best toward an amazing season. We are thankful for our Savior, Jesus Christ and God for this 2022 season and for the gift of such an exciting season last year!

Our first meets are February 19 for High School at Saint Mary’s Hall and February 23 for Middle School at the Medina Valley Relay Meet.

MEET COMMISSIONER and HEAD COACH, DAVID DUNN!

David has been married to his wife Belinda for 36 years. They have six children and six grandchildren. They homeschooled their children from kindergarten through 12th grade and all went on to become college graduates. David and Belinda are emptynesters now, and they enjoy spending time with their grandkids and traveling when they get the chance.

David grew up in Texas and met Belinda at Lamar University where David studied chemical engineering and ran track and cross country.  Belinda earned her degree in Speech and taught in both private and public school until their children were born.  The Dunns lived in Houston for five years, then moved to Sandy, Utah for 9 years before moving to San Antonio in 1999.  Currently, Belinda works as the Equip Lead at Hillside Fellowship while David works for Valero Energy as the Gasoline Optimization Director.

After resuming competitive running in his forties, David was twice ranked in the top 20 of US Men over 40 in the Marathon. One of his highlights was running in the Boston Marathon at age 41 and finishing 117th overall!

David resurrected the FEAST track and field program in 2001 and has been Track Commissioner and High School Head Coach each year since. The FEAST track team began small, but every year the team grew and became more competitive. Along the way, a middle school head coach, assistant commissioner, and event coaches were added bringing valuable expertise to the team.   

In competition, the FEAST track teams are very successful! The first Texas Home School State Track meet was held in 2009 and since that time the FEAST Boys have won the state title 9 times and the FEAST Girls have been the state champs every year.  Additionally, numerous FEAST track athletes have graduated and gone on to compete at the collegiate level.

Thank you, Coach Dunn, for serving our Track and Field program!

FEAST Track Varsity Girls: Overall meet champs in our first two meets!

The team has been very successful at the meets they have attended thus far. The Varsity girls have started the season undefeated, coming in first place two meets in a row. The rest of the team has also shown strong performances, with the Varsity boys finishing 2nd and 3rd in their first two meets. The JV girls were 2nd, and the JV boys finished in 5th place at their first meets.

NEW SCHOOL RECORDS SET

 

With the first High School track meets of 2021 came several new school records set by the talented athletes of FEAST! KayCee Keller (shown left) broke the former 3200m record with a time of 10:51. Grace Bettencourt broke the school record in the pole vault with a vault of 9 feet! The following week Grace cleared 9 feet 3 inches for another school record vault. A big congratulation to the athletes that have surpassed those before them and set new school records.

Although some of the larger meets the team had hoped to attend have been canceled, morale remains high, and the athletes have continued to train hard and show devotion to their sport. Psalm 128:2 says, “You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.” If the team continues to work hard to the glory of God, they will continue to find success in their athletic pursuits!

A SHAKY START – First Track Meet of the Season Cancelled

The FEAST Patriots high school track team had been training and preparing for their first meet for weeks when an unfortunate weather forecast resulted in its cancellation. This was disappointing, but the athletes were ready to move forward and set their eyes on the next meet on the schedule. The first-ever FEAST High School Invitational track meet. While the Patriots have hosted a middle school track meet annually for 18 years, the team has never held a high school meet. The upcoming meet will bring both excitement and a team of dedicated coaches and parent-volunteers who will keep the races running smoothly!

When obstacles appear in our path, it is important to learn to push past them and continue on with hope and determination. The cancellation of meets has been dealt with before in years prior, so our athletes have learned to shift their mindset and view the situation in a positive light. The team will continue to train through the uncertainty and the cold, rainy weather and look forward to the opportunities and warm weather that lies ahead.

CARRYING ON

January 1st, marked the first day of a new season with the annual team meeting. The FEAST Track and Field team is excited to have some meets this year despite the corona-virus still impacting many athletic events. Throughout the year, the FEAST Patriots will continue running, while taking every necessary precaution to ensure the health of its athletes.

The past year of track and field and sports, in general, has been greatly impacted by the corona-virus pandemic. With the national shutdown that began on March 22nd of last year, the previous track season was unfortunately cut short. Many of the Patriots showed dedication to the team by continuing their training in neighborhoods or public tracks and prepared for future seasons by running time trials.

Now, a year later, the corona-virus continues to affect our daily lives. Despite this, we are all grateful that we will be able to run track and field this year. In a time full of so much uncertainty, we can rejoice in the fact that some aspects of our lives will return to normality.


January 2021

The first official FEAST Track practice will be on Wednesday, January 20th, at Wheatley Heights Sports Complex from 4:45pm to 6:45pm.
