Please note that there may be some last minute changes to our relay line-ups.  All athletes are to bring their uniform and be prepared to compete, even if you are not currently listed as participating.

This brings me to our first reminder .... please keep the uniforms put away out of sight.  If not wearing it, place in your bag (not on top of it).

The approximate time the events will be run are listed next to the event name.  This meet usually runs close to being on time but just in case, be there early if you plan to cheer on your athlete.

All athletes are expected to be there the entire meet unless previously excused by a note from your parent.

Athletes competing in any jump event, the 60M Hurdles, the 60M Dash and the Shot Put are to be at IWU by 3p. All other athletes are to be at IWU by no later than 4p.

Pack a bag ... extra clothes, shoes, socks, water and food are a few things that come to mind that you will want to have with you.

More reminders:

Team photos are scheduled for this Monday, March 18th.  All team members are to bring their uniforms and competition shorts (black only).  I did not send home the photo envelopes fearing they would never come back.

Then I remembered they are on Spring Break this week.  My bad!  There is, however,  a link on the U-High Home Page listed as Spring Sports Photos and under "extra forms", there is a link with the photo package descriptions listed.

Please have your athlete bring a check made out to Photography by Kent for the amount of the package you want to purchase.  Immediately following the photos, the athletes will be dismissed to go to our meet at IWU.

I will send out information about this meet this weekend.  If there are athletes who have not informed us they are not able to be at this meet, please let me know as soon as possible as entries for this meet are due soon.

Enough info for one note ... hope to see you at the meet tomorrow.  The girls have been working very hard ... please remind them to drink water, eat well and often, stretch, rest and ice any aches or pains.
