Track Notes, April 20, 2015

Thanks for all who came out on a beautiful Friday night to watch an exciting meet!  We are very proud of our girls and the way they competed against some very good teams  There were many highlights for the Pioneers  ...   We placed second out of 23 teams losing only to perennial track powerhouse Springfield Southeast.  Our 4 x 800 team of Amber Nanni, Madigan Landess, Shannan Supan and Ashley LaFayette won while posting the best 2A time in the state so far this year running 9:40.23.  Chante Stonewall also set a Class 2A state best time in the 300 Hurdles running 44.86. Chante also won the 100 Hurdles.  She joined Spencer Smiley, Micayla Matheison and Nia Gilbert in a season best 4 x 200, nearly 2 seconds faster than state qualifying time.  I could go through the line up and list season and personal bests for almost every single athlete but will spare you some reading ... The coaching staff is very proud of our athletes and the way they represented University High School!

Tomorrow there are two meets.  Assignments are attached:  CCHS assignments Oly assignments

Field events begin at 4p with the events listed below.  All other field events will follow.  Running begins at 430p.

Those going to Oly will leave by bus immediately after school with the exception of the following:
The following events will be released Tuesday at 2:00p
Girls HJ – Lexie Rowe, Amber Nanni
Boys/Girls LJ – Brianna Pinter, Michelle Styczynski/
Girls Discus – Madison Sapp, Jessica Baker
Boys/Girls PV – Katie Reeves, Lauren Seaver

Again, all other athletes assigned to Oly will leave on a bus as soon as possible after school, no later than 310p

Meet notes:
Athletes assigned to Central Catholic are responsible for getting to the meet on their own.  Field events start at 4:30p so those athletes need to get there early to warm up.  All athletes should be there by 4p.  Running begins at 515.

Please be sure to bring warm clothes and a blanket to the meets.  The temperature after dark will drop dramatically and the winds may be in the 20 -25 miles per hour range.    

Coach Hampton will be at the CCHS meet while the rest of the coaching staff will be at Oly.

Let me know if you have questions ... this will be our last split meet day.  Thanks so much for your patience!
