Twilight Meet and April 28- May 3

We didn't have the best weather for meets this last week, but everyone still competed and we saw some good marks despite the conditions.  Great job!  Results are always posted on the Schedule and Result Page.

No JV meet this week, but Friday is our annual Twilight Meet.  We need some help running it, so any parents that would like to help us out it would be appreciated!  Please contact Coach Haag if you can help out.  ALL ATHLETES are expected to be there and help out!  Meet will start at 5:00pm.

HERE are Flo Track's National rankings for last week.  Kaysha is ranked 9th in the 200 Meter and Lucy 8th in the Mile.

This is the time of year to focus on our team goals and what we want to do to help the team be the best it can be and win some Championships!  Make sure you are keeping your grades up, getting enough sleep, eating healthy, drinking enough water before and after practice, stretching good after practice, icing, rolling out, hitting your workouts hard, training your brain to be tough when it get's tough in these next big workouts and meets, having a good attitude, and doing what the Coaches ask you to do.

Congrats to the following athletes for breaking school records:  Kyle Strauss-110 Hurdles (14.44, Amarissa Hawker - Shot (44-00.5), Grace "Mesi" Havea- Discus (135-7).

Congrats to the following athletes who hit State Qualifying Marks this week:  Rory Linkletter 3200 Meter

Coach Beirle is teaching some weights classes next year.  We would strongly encourage you to get into one of his classes if you can arrange it.  This way you can lift and get stronger, and we as coaches can make sure you are doing the workouts that we need you to be doing.
