March 27 - April 1

Big THANKS to the powers at be for going to bat for us to get our spirit packs and uniforms pushed through!   They are on their way now!  We will still have a week or two turn around.
 
We will be at Lehi on Wednesday, meet starts at 3:30pm, buses are set to leave at 1:50pm.

We are looking to possibly take two groups to invites on Saturday, one to UVU (which is a limited entry) and one to Copper Hills. 


Congrats to Brielle Carr for getting the State record in the girls Pole Vault on Tuesday (11' 3")!

Congrats to those who hit State Q marks at Davis Super Meet: Brielle Carr - Girls Pole Vault, Girls 4x100 Relay - (Abby Tycksen, Emma Newbold, Kayla Butterfield, Lauren Hyer), Karter Shaw, Jaren Kump - Shot Put, Blake Freeland - Shot Put and Javelin,  Boys 4x100 Relay - (Liam Post, AJ Keil, Jaden Cutler, Ashton Atkinson).


For those who would like to buy a decal with the Track logo, they are $5 and can be purchased by paying $5 in the Main Office into the Track account and getting the receipt to Coach Barnes.

March 20-25

We are over 3 weeks into the season and the roster in finalized.  If you didn't get your stuff all taken care of you will have to come out again next year.
We could have 3 invitationals this week for the varsity type athletes.  Girls at Davis Tuesday and Boys at Davis on Wednesday. The JV and younger athletes will have practice as normal and will be getting ready for our meet next week.
Spirit Packs were ordered a week ago Friday and it will take a good 2 weeks after the District approves the order, so just a heads up.  District Purchasing is processing this order now and it is out of our hands. 
We are no longer going to the meet this Saturday if the weather is looking bad, so talk to your coaches about practice for the weekend.

March 13-18

We are over 2 weeks into the season and still people are missing eligibility!  Our first meet is Wednesday at American Fork so we have to have everything by Monday March 13 for you to be part of the team.  Maybe we have been too lenient because this should have all been done and over the first week not going into the third week.  We will know better for future years.

For the meet on Wednesday the buses will leave the High School at 1:50pm, North side of the building.  Everyone that is eligible will be excused early to get ready for the meet, this includes 9th graders at the Middle Schools.  Make sure you talk to your teachers and get the work you will be absent for.   All athletes should ride the bus to and from the meets.
Since most athletes have taken so long to turn everything in, we won't have uniforms yet (they take at least 2 weeks).  Those who competed last year can wear your old uniform for this meet, those that are new will have to do your best to find something Herrimnish to wear. 

Spirit Packs and Uniforms are due as well, and some athletes still need to get sizes in Monday with receipts or you are out of luck!

One last plug for Fundraising.  We have encouraged everyone to help fundraise $20-$40 each to help the team.  We have a huge team and are always in need of equipment and that is very expensive.  We had to buy a new High Jump Pit this year and are in need of Hurdles, Pole Vault Poles, a Pole Vault Pit, and other items.  These things cost several thousand dollars!  We have set up snap-raise as our fundraiser and asked people to send out 20 quality emails.  This of course is an optional thing and we understand that some of you absolutely hate fundraising and won't do it.  That is fine.  However, anyone that would like to help the team in this way it would be much appreciated.  If everyone did a little bit, we could have a huge amount of success in raising money for our needs.   Thanks!

 The default bottoms for girls are the spanks and for boys the running shorts.  The alternate bottoms will be a girls running short and a boys 9" spandex.  Shot Put and Discus throwers will wear a boys basketball style short and the girls will wear a full tight.  These bottoms can also be purchased in the spirit pack if you would like additional bottoms; i.e. you buy a running short with your uniform and then buy a spank, 9" spandex, basketball short, or tight with your spirit pack.
