Dear Storm Family,


Up coming news and events: 


April 25 Storm Home Meet 

This is the final regular season meet of our competition,  We then will have 2 Championship meets,  This is the last chance for athletes  to "Qualify" for the league championship meet on May 9th.  All other athletes will go to the May 2nd Championship race. So this is a very important meet for the kids, they will need to put their best effort in to get their best marks. The coaches are working hard to help them find the events that they are best qualified for or  are on the bubble and will be focusing on them qualifying this week. 

There are 2 ways to qualify they must hit the mark or may be invited if they are in the top 8 positions of the Western League.


Open Final Meet (May 2nd)

The open final meet is for all athletes who did not get a qualifying mark in any of the individual events, OR ranked top 8 in the league. It will be held on May 2nd. This is the final meet of the season for those athletes. (No Intermediates at this event)


If an athlete has a qualifying mark in any event or is an intermediate or older, they may not attend this meet.


League Championship Meet (May 9th)
All Intermediate Athletes plus all qualified athletes and a select few athletes in the top of the league will be invited to the Western League Championship meet to be held on May 9th.

The coaches will attend a seeding meeting of the League to finalize the seeding of the championship meet. Non-qualified athletes will fill any open positions in any events by the  top 20 list of the league. If you are interested in being advanced to this meet, please let your coach know. 

Individual Event Championship Meet (May 16th)
This is the final event of the year at the conference level. The top four (4) finishers in each event from both leagues (East & West) and the next  fastest times marks will be invited to compete in this Conference wide Championship meet to be held this year at Valley College on May 16.

This is a 10 lane track, so in the sprint events we will advance up to 10 athletes.

The distance events advance 12 athletes, and the field events 8.

All advancements to this meet come from the meet on the 10th there are no pass-through athletes, you must attend the meet on May 10th.


This is the best of the Conference championship meet.


If you need more information please be sure to ask your coach.

This Weeks Track Meet

This is the final meet of what I refer to as our regular competition season, that does not mean we are done yet, but this is the last chance athletes have to "Qualify" for the league championship meet on May 9th. So this is a very important meet for the kids, they have to put everything they got into their competition this week. The coaches are working hard to find the events that the kids are on the bubble and will be focusing on them qualifying this week. 


Any events that are not full (there must be at least 8 qualified athletes in an event to be considered full) the next athletes will be invited up to fill those empty places. 


I'll send out a link for volunteering later.
