Sorry that this post is so late guys, today was crazy busy! Anyways, what did you all think of round 4 last night?!! A lightning fast and tough round right? I’m still amazed!! I don’t know about you, but this seriously is the most exciting NFR I have witnessed. Those times last night were crazy fast! I will keep this short since round 5 starts here in a half hour. Crazy that the NFR is almost halfway over! Will there be a new arena record? I have a feeling there might be! Guess we will have to sit on pins and needles and find out!

Congratulations Michele and Slick!

It was an exciting redemption round for Michele McLeod and Slick who had a rocky start to the NFR. They crossed the timer line with a 13.49 second run which won the go round! The fastest time we have seen so far this NFR and only .12 seconds off of Taylor Jacobs arena record set in 2013! Sarah Rose McDonald clocked in at 13.56 seconds placing 2nd  and Lisa Lockhart ran a close 13.58 placing 3rd. Sherry Cervi was in 1st for the average but unfortunately hit a barrel, which moved Lisa Lockhart up to first in the average. Will she hold it tonight? We shall find out!
