Dear Storm Family,


Welcome back if you were gone last week due to Spring Break. 


Whew! that was a big meet! 1333 athletes competed this past weekend at the Valley United Invitational meet. The meet was fantastic, exciting, and LOOOONNNNGGGG! in the grand scheme of things, it was well worth the effort put out by everybody. I want to thank especially Tom, Zach, Elaine for all they did out there, I'm sure Elaine put on about 15 miles on Saturday, Anyone ever watch her going back and forth! She really does keep the meets moving forward, and her knowledge and expertise save us hours! 



The results to the meet have been updated today, there were some DQs applied to athletes who competed in too many events. Its very important that athletes not over event, I am glad that none of them were our athletes. I feel bad when a kids marks get taken away at the end of the day because they competed in too many events. 


I will be trying to catch up with the DATA reports on our website tonight when I get home from work.

Scholastic Award
In an effort to emphasize the importance of maintaining scholastic ability in conjunction with athletic ability, the Santa Clarita Track Club, Inc. in cooperation with local school districts, awards a Scholastic Achievement Medal to all active athletes that maintain a 'B+' (3.5) grade point average or better during the season. The medal is engraved with the student's name, year and symbol of the sport in which he/she is participating. A special President's Award Medal is presented to players that maintain straight A's.

This Weeks Track Meet

Our track meet this week is an away meet,  But it's at home, Valencia High School, We will still have to set up the track, and we will be handling the timing and results. For the most part it's a home meet but the other club will get the credit for hosting it.  


This is good for us, as their home field in at Quartz Hill. 


I'll send out a link for volunteering later. 

Relays this week need to be submitted to the conference Thursday so please be sure to have your kids let their coaches know if they are going to be in the relay this weekend. All relay athletes need to check in with their coach before noon on Saturday. 

Coaches Emails: 

Lost and Found 
We have a huge amount of lost and found, we have no place to store it. Please check along the fence for any items that might be yours. 

All items will be donated to Good Will at the end of the week every week.

The communication boxes will be at the track on Wednesdays. Your athletes meet ribbons will be in them and any items that we have to distribute to you.
