Track Notes, May 4, 2015

Congratulations to our girls for their impressive 2nd place finish at the Urbana Invite last Friday against an impressive field.   We are proud of this group!

Tomorrow is the Cornbelt Fresh/Soph Conference meet to be held at Eureka High School.

 Lexie Rowe, Lauren Seaver, McKenna Sapp, Jessica Baker, Ana Tulley, Bri Pinter and Danielle Kinsella will be dismissed from school at 2p.  They will leave on a mini bus Coach Carr will be driving at 2:30p to have time to prepare for their 4p events. All remaining athletes will be dismissed at their usual time and the bus will leave as soon as possible after ... no later than 3:10p.  Please be ready on time! Coach Shaver will be supervising the bus we will share with the boys FS team.

This meet will be the last for some of our athletes.  We have an outstanding group of young athletes on this team and unfortunately, we cannot place every one of them in our championship meets these next two weeks.  Success in track is measured by much more than times or distances.  Friendship, sportsmanship, camaraderie, improvement in skill/speed, fun ... show the season was a success.  So proud of these young athletes and hope they feel their time and effort was well placed.   These young ladies epitomize the term "student athletes" and have represented our team very well!  Hope to see many of you at the meet tomorrow!  (Bring rain gear!)
