JV Conference Invite

The track and field team sent many of our junior varsity competitors to Lussier Stadium to compete in the annual Big 8 JV Invite. This meet is an amazing learning experience and a great opportunity for these athletes to get back on the track and compete. I hope every athlete was able to learn from this experience. Whether it is race strategy, warm up techniques, hand off skills, or so much more. The better "students of the game" we become as athletes the better our team will be able to compete. Every athlete should want to learn about track and field. How every event operates, what order the events are competed, how far each event is....there is a lot about or sport which makes it complex and fun :)

No team scores are kept at this meet but performances were recorded. All athletes can see their results at practice today. Some highlights were PR's by Margot W in the 100 hurdles, Caroline S in the 100 dash, Lauren A. in the 1600 run, Julia F in the 400 dash, Emily H in the 800 run, Favour A in the 200 dash, and Tatum M in discus for the girls. Alec W. in the 100 dash, Ryan M. in the 400 dash, Ty S. in the 300 hurdles, Stefan K. in the 800 run, Connor G-T in the 3200 run, Isaac K in the shot put, Courtney M in the triple jump, and James A and Bryce H in the pole vault. In addition to these PRs there were many athletes who tried new events that established a new mark to improve upon. We learned Thursday night that we have a lot of work yet left to do to meet our season goals. Lets put in the effort over the next couple weeks so we can end the season on a high note.

Many athletes will have an opportunity to practice this Saturday morning 8:00 - 10:00am or High Jumpers/Throwers 9:00 - 11:00am.
