Track Notes, April 16, 2015

Tomorrow is the Bloomington High School Lady Raider Invitational.  This is a meet which will have some very good local talent on display.  Should be a very fun and exciting evening of track and field.  The weather looks to be warm with very little wind.  Please consider coming out to watch the best this area has to offer ... our very own distance runners, sprinters, throwers and jumpers included!  Just check out the area honor role in today's paper.  UHSTF is well represented across events!   Nice job ladies ... we are proud of you!!

Field events begin at 4p and pre-lims at 430p.  There will be pre-lims in the 100, 100H and 200.  I have attached meet information and event assignments.

A couple of notes:
This is a limited entry meet so please check the event assignments.  All team members are expected at the meet unless you have been previously excused.
Any athlete assigned an event who is taking the ACT the next day can be excused after their events are over.  Support, encouragement, holding blocks and timing splits are just some of the things needed during a meet ... like any team, being there for teammates is an important role ... please help facilitate your athlete being at the entire meet.  I have always excused athletes who need to do something related to school and/or have family obligations but leaving to get ice cream doesn't quite meet those standards .... unless of course, you bring the coaches ice cream ... then that's good.

Three meets next week: Two on Tuesday; Olympia Relays and the Central Catholic Invite.  All healthy athletes should be competing at one of these two meets.   Next Friday is the Dunlap Relays and will be a limited entries meet.  There will be buses going to Oly and Dunlap but there will be no bus going to CCHS.  Athletes assigned to CCHS will need to arrange a ride.

Thanks to our parents for the snacks and water at the meets ... very much appreciated!  Thank you Mrs. Styczynski for organizing this.  Also, thanks to Mrs. Baker for keeping up out team blog site.  If you haven't checked it out yet, please go to U-High athletics web site and click on the Girl's Track connection.  It has schedule , notes, results, team records, team photo etc ... also the standard order of events for meets.

Please bring warm clothes to the meet ... a blanket for the cold metal seats in the stands may be in order also.  Hope to see you all out to support a hard working group of young ladies who deserve it!
