Track Notes, 4/24/13

Thanks to the families and friends who came out to see the Intercity Meet on Monday.  We would have loved to send our Seniors out with a city championship but circumstance dictated differently.  The good news is, despite injury and Illness, our girls were completely competitive in the meet.  Many athletes finished with personal bests and we even had another school record set in the Shot Put ... Gabi Jacobs throwing 44" 6".  I am glad to be taking this team into the conference meets and Sectionals the next two weeks.

This Friday we are in Urbana.  Meet information and assignments are attached.

I hope all the athletes let you know practice will start today at 4:15p and we should be finished by 6:15p, no later than 6:30p.  This late start was necessary to be able to get on the ISU track.  This late start may happen a few times these final 3 weeks.

After the conference meets next week, only the athletes on the Sectional roster will be required to come to practice.  Sectional assignments will be determined after the end of next week.

As always, let me know if you have questions or concerns.  Thanks!

Restricted Areas:  Once the meet begins (4:30) no one will be allowed in the press box except officials.  All coaches and contestants who are not competing must remain in the bleachers, in the field event area (where they are not disrupting the event), or with the team camps on the north side of the track.  Athletes will be allowed on the track to warm-up for their events as long as they do not interfere with the event that is currently on the track.  No one will be allowed on the football field except for individuals who are helping run the meet.  Teams will not be allowed to use the turf fields for warm up purposes.

Staging Area:  All running events except for the 300 meters hurdles and the 200 meter dash will be staged at the southeast end of the track behind the 100 meter dash start line.  The 300 meter hurdles and the 200 meter dash will be staged at the start line for those events.  All athletes must pick up a hip number at the table in the mechanical room before reporting to the staging area.

2013 Work Assignments:  To insure that we have enough workers and the meet runs efficiently, each school is needed to provide one worker to serve as a timer and/or head field event judge.  The assigned schools should provide one adult (assistant coach, knowledgeable parent, or student teacher) to cover their area.  A list of work assignments will be sent to you with your meet program on Wednesday.  Thank you for your understanding and support.
