Track Notes, 04/12/12

Tomorrow's meet is the Bloomington High School Girl's Invite. The weather may be an issue ... more due to rain than temp but be prepared for both wet and cool weather. Throw a plastic garbage bag in your bag to keep your clothes and shoes dry. There is NO BUS to this meet. Any athletes needing a ride to the meet, please let me know asap. All team members are expected to be at the meet unless excused by Coach Neisler or I. If you are leaving early, I do not need a note as there is no bus but you do need to let me know you will be leaving early. We will meet as a team at our camp after the 4 x 400.

If you are not participating in tomorrow's meet, please remember there are many ways to assist your teammates. Helping with blocks, warm-ups and encouragement are always good. I have been impressed with the way our team conducts themselves at meets. Please remember ... you are not allowed to run along side of a participant while they are in an event. You are also not to congregate around the finish line as it interferes with the auto timers and keeps coaches from being able to see starts/finishes. I was proud of the fact Bloomington's coaches recognized how our team conducted themselves Tuesday .... so the above is just a reminder!
I am looking forward to the level of competition tomorrow. Come to the meet focused, prepared and ready to compete. I know for a fact there will be many athletes wanting to test themselves against us ... let's make them earn any success they have tomorrow.
Remember this afternoon is the baseline testing to be used in case we have any concussion issues during our season. Distance will go directly to the testing at 3:10p and sprint/field event athletes will go at 4p. We will be practicing when not testing so come ready to go.
