Jingle Bell Relays were a success! Kudos to all who were brave enough to test out their racing skills. Friday 12/21/18 practice is ON, and looks like the rain should stop with 60 degree temperatures!

1. Armory athletes must attend at least at the beginning of practice to pick up uniforms and information.

Students will participate in a 4×200 m, 4×400m or 4×800 m relay, based on their choice, as follows:
*3:25 pm – 4×800 m relay

3:40 pm – 4×200 m relay
3:55 pm – 4×400 m relay
*Throwers will be doing test shot put throws after they return from lifting. *

Students will sign up for the relay(s) he/she would like to participate in at the beginning of practice.
