Here we are, our season drawing to a close. It's time to pause to review what you've accomplished this year...training since last June for some of you.
We've had another remarkable season with success in our league and in the larger invitationals. Your accomplishments are punctuated by the number of ribbons and medals brought home (even when I didn't think we would). Moreso, the work of this team, individually and collectively, is recognized by other coaches. Bishop Kearney has gone from a small team to a contender in just a few years thanks to your dedication.
Our last invitational of the year was on Saturday at Batavia. Our boy's team scored in sixth place against a solid group of large schools! There are a dozen ribbons on my classroom door just waiting to be claimed. Feel free to take them after practice tonight.
This Week in Track:
Practice Monday/Tuesday/Thursday 3:15-5:00. Thursday is optional for varsity.
Varsity PPL Championship meet @ AQ Wednesday 5/16. This is a 4:30 start and will run later than normal due to the Pentathlon and Steeplechase added to the events.
Modified PPL Championship meet @ AQ on Friday 5/18, also a 4:30 start.
Practice next week (May 21-24) is for sectional qualifiers only. This includes our relay teams. If you are on a relay team, even if you did not qualify for an individual event, you need to come to practice.
Our sectional entries must be finalized by May 20 - Please let a coach know as soon as possible if you are qualified but not going to be able to go to the sectional meet.
Class C/D Sectional Meet is at Marion High School on May 25.
End of season
Uniforms: Varsity non-sectional athletes may begin to return their uniforms on May 17, modified should be returned on May 21.
Party/recognition: We will have our end-of-season festivities this year...dates are being planned. Details to follow.
See you all at practice.
