The Week of 5/12
Announcements from Coach Laidlaw:
Happy Mother's Day to all of the Track Moms! I hope you had a wonderful weekend celebrating.
Last week the Varsity Team placed 3rd at True Team Sections. There were a lot of PR's that were ran on the track. I'm proud of our team for how we competed.
This week our JV girls will wrap up their season with JV Conference on Wednesday. Uniforms will be collected on Thursday. JV girls are always welcome to continue to workout with the Varsity Team until the end of the season.
We are in the process of setting a date for the end of season banquet. I will email out the information this week.

Grit and Grind Awards:
Faith Fitzhugh- Faith was an alternate in the 3200 Tuesday. Even though this race wasn't a race she trains for she stepped up and helped the team earn points.
Annabelle Stang- Annabelle ran the 4x800, 400, and 800 on Tuesday at True Team. She PR'd in the 400, had a season record in the 800, and was apart of the winning 4x800 team.
Jordan Parent- Jordan joined the Top 10 Honor Roll with her 5:19.35 mile time on Tuesday. She also ran a PR time in the 800 placing 3rd, and was apart of the winning 4x400 team.
Nice job ladies!
***You MUST use your school google account! Student-athletes only. Parents will be invited once the athlete joins.
Middle School Tryouts:
7th and 8th grade girls interested in trying out for high school track can register through fee pay. They must have an up to date sports physical. Tryouts will be the first week of practice and athletes will know Friday if they will stay with the varsity team. What we look for during the try out is if they have the capacity to help the varsity team within that season. If we believe it is not the right fit, families will receive a full refund and can sign up for Middle School Track which starts in April.
ASSISTANT COACH - Distance /Hurdles
We understand that there will be meets where a parent(s) or grandparent(s) would like to drive an athlete home versus the athlete taking the bus back to the high school. In order to ensure the safety of the athlete(s), we are requiring a Transportation Permission Slip to be filled out and returned to Coach Swanberg BEFORE the bus leaves for the meet. You may pick up this form in the Activites Office at the high school. No texts, voicemails or any other forms of communication will be accepted. We highly discourage parents from picking up their athlete(s) from meets. WE ARE A TEAM and as a team, we should be together from the time we leave the high school to our return. We understand that this might be an inconvenience for last minute plans but hope that you will understand that we are following school policy. Thank You!!
