End of Season Wrap

Here are a couple of remaining notes concerning track.

  1. Congratulations to all of our state track participants!  You guys/girls did an awesome job.  Erika Furbeck medaled in the long jump and 100m dash (2nd and 4th respectively).  Stephanie Brown medaled in the discus with a 6th place finish.  Braden Woods medaled in the shot put with a 3rd place finish.
  2. Please have your athletes return their uniforms now.  Please put them in a bag with their name on the outside.  Please make sure that they hand it to either Coach Biver, Coach Richards, or myself directly.  Athletes that do not return their uniforms (or return them with significant damage) will be charged $35.
  3. We will have a track awards night next Tuesday (May 27th) starting at 6pm in the High School Cafeteria.  All athletes and their parents are invited to attend.  Hope to see you all there!
