March 17-22, Meets Start

The Meet vs. AF has been canceled due to a soccer game being scheduled on the field at the same time.  We will try to reschedule it at a later time.  Practice as usual.

Parents,  we could use some help for these upcoming meets, including Thursday.  If you can help us out please let Coach Haag know ASAP.  We will need help with running the events on the track and in the field, possibly with timing and results, and also in the concession stand.

Make sure you are at practice everyday!  Unexcused misses or being frequently gone can result in getting pulled from competitions or cut from the team.
