Track Notes, 4/3/13

Nice start to our outdoor season last evening!  Thanks to all the parents who braved the cold and metal bleacher seats to support our girls.  I'm hoping all left happy after seeing them compete.

The meet gave every healthy athlete a chance to participate and I certainly appreciate Eureka High School being an accommodating host to our large team and multiple entries.

Congratulations to our girls who placed first in the four team meet.  We had event winners in the 100 Hurdles (Chante), 100M Dash (Erika), 200M Dash(Spencer), 400M Dash (Sydney B), 800M Run(Sydney B), 1600M Run (Madigan), 300M Hurdles (Kara), 4 x 100 (Erika, Spencer, Micayla, Chante), 4 x 400 (Erika, Micayla, Jasmine, Chante), 4 x 800 (Sydney B, Shannan, Ashley, Alexandra), High Jump (Dasha), Triple Jump (Jasmine), Shot Put (Gabi) and Discus (Gabi). We also had multiple athletes score points by placing in the meet, which is encouraging and a key to team success.

The second and last order for team warm ups this year are due this Friday.  The set includes the jacket, pant, hat and spike bag and orders are only for the entire set ... no partial orders.  The order form was handed out again this week and the coaches have extras.  The price is $69 and checks should be made out to Karonji Carr.

I have attached information for the Metamora Meet this Saturday below.   Event assignments will be made tomorrow.
