Track Notes, 3/27/14

Busy week for UHSTF.  This weekend will be the last of our indoor meets.  We begin our outdoor season on April 8 at Eureka.  

UHSTF warm-up orders are due tomorrow.  Please make checks out to Coach Karonji Carr.  The coaches have handed out order forms and we have extra in case they did not make it home.  These warm -ups are very similar to last year's so if you have those, you can easily use those again this year.  For our new athletes, these should last you through your U-High track career.  You may want to buy them a little big so you have room to layer clothes underneath them (track meets can be very cold).

Illinois Top Times Meet:
We have four athletes who qualified for the Illinois Top Times Meet at IWU this weekend.  Sydney Billingsley will compete in the 1600; Gabi Jacobs in the Shot Put;  Chante Stonewall in the 60M Hurdles and Katie Reeves in the Pole Vault.  Congratulations and best of luck to each of them!  Coach Neisler will be with these athletes at the TT's meet.  The TT's meet heat sheets can be found at the following link:

Cogdal Relays:
The majority of the team will compete at ISU at the Cogdal Relays which we are hosting.  We will need all athletes, competing or not, to be at this meet to assist at event venues.  Athletes should wear clothing that identifies them as being from U-High (U-High track warm-up or any U-High shirt).   If an athlete is unable to be at this meet, they need to be excused by Coach Neisler or I.
All athletes should be at the meet by 8:45a with the exception of High Jumpers ... they should be at ISU by 8a.
