Hello Parents and Athletes,
This email is for those planning to run in the 2019 Track and Field season.
- This Thursday we will be having our Annual Miler's Night held in the LN Field House at 8pm. Parents please come and watch your athlete compete. It is a fun night with 1 full hour of racing. The girls and boys will be divided into heats and will be competing against each other. Bragging rights are on the line and it gives many of the athletes to compete for the first time since October. This is for both the boys and girls.
- Also, there will be a call-out meeting for the girls track and field team this tuesday right after school. This meeting is for the athletes looking to compete this Spring. We will have regular scheduled conditioning afterwards.
Finally- Indoor Track
- Indoor Track is a little bit bizarre in Indiana. The month of February is club racing. This means athletes that choose to compete at indoor races in February will be doing so unattached. The school does not pay for entries, does not provide transportation and does not provide competition uniforms. There are a number of meets that colleges host as fundraisers. Typically IU, UINDY and Wabash are the popular club meets. These are simply opportunities to compete, but are not required. Nor are they expected. If the athlete chooses to compete then they will need to pay for their own entry and provide their own transportation.
- March is entirely different. This is when the school team will be competing in the HSR Qualifying events. Hoping to qualify for Indoor State. We will have a number of meets we will attend as a team. The entries will be taken care of by the coach, we will be using team uniforms and be riding the team bus. Indoor track is a team sport starting in March.
