Friday practice will be very light for all, and team decisions will be announced for all events, except for the throws team. Paperwork will be issued to those accepted onto the team that will need to be turned in by next Tuesday 3/12/19.

We hope to assess the throwers by Saturday, or Monday at the latest, depending on the weather and snow melting.

Reminder of practice on Saturday for those who are accepted onto the team. Those who are not accepted onto the team are encouraged to continue to train and join winter track next year in December.

100m trials will be run on Saturday to get a baseline on sprinters who are accepted on the sprints team, as there may still be some question on primary vs secondary event for a few athletes.

10am-12pm practice on Saturday.

Shave for the Brave tomorrow night 5pm at EHS auditorium! Coach Kami, Coach Keeley, Edna Creelman, Cameron Carter, Alex Correa, and Mark Magee who will be going bald, raising $$ for pediatric cancer through St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
