Newsletter for the week of April 21, 2008

Volunteers needed – For this weekend's meet. I’ll have a signup sheet at practice. We will need 7:00 set up workers, hurdle crew workers, and end of meet clean up on Saturday and Sunday. We also need high jump workers on Sunday only. PARENTS MUST VOLUNTEER FOR THEIR ATHLETES TO ATTEND THIS WEEKENDS MEET!


What is an invitational meet! Many people have asked what is the invitational, this meet is held at Birmingham HS and is open to all athletes except Gremlins. It is a two day meet. Most events are on Saturday and some are on Sunday .All field events except Youth and Intermediate High Jump will be on Saturday. There is a different schedule for all events and a open pit by time, for Shot Put and Long Jump. Please pick up a flyer at practice if you are going.


Who should compete? Any Bantam, Midget, Youth, or Intermediate. This is a much bigger and longer meet than our regular meet and athletes may only compete in 2 events and a relay (3 events for Intermediates) this meet will have all teams in the conference and will be very competitive. I recommend any athlete that is close to a qualifying time to attend, and those who would like a big P.R. on their events

You can run on Saturday or Sunday, but not all events are on both days PLEASE check the schedule to see which day the event you would like to run is on. On Saturday any athlete may run in the semi finals in the 100, Hurdles, and 4X100, but only the top 8 from the semi finals can run on Sunday in those events. Medals will be awarded for the overall 1st-5th. Places (not per heat) and ribbons for all other places. For more information Click here for a Flyer
