Good news is the temperatures look to be much improved next week onward, so we just have to get through this week. Make sure to bring plenty of warm clothes, hats, gloves, etc to tryouts. The schedule will be changed and I will post that plan by this evening.

Keep training today if you can!

The time has come for SPRING TRACK to begin on Monday 3/4/19, except there’s a bunch of white stuff on the ground. And there may be more to come. I will keep this website updated with any new information and instructions on tryouts. Schedules will likely be altered, so stay tuned…..

Keep training the best you can!

“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.”

Shave for the Brave, St. Baldricks Foundation for Pediatric Cancer, event is next Friday at EHS 5:00 pm. Coach Kami and Coach Keeley will be shaving their heads bald, along with the following athletes: Edna Creelman, Alex Correa, Cameron Carter, Mark Magee!

Kudos to those who came out today in the frigid temperatures. Winter track practice cancelled tomorrow Wednesday 2/27 but the weight room is open to those attending weight training sessions! See you Thursday!

Reminder to turn in all forms by tomorrow 2/27/19 in order to try out for the spring track team!

We are still waiting for Groundhog Phil’s prediction to be true! There is a wind advisory that was placed through tomorrow 6pm, so we have to cancel winter track practice again tomorrow 2/25. Keep training if you can on your own!

Those who have been attending weight training should still report to the weight room tomorrow 2:45 – 3:45 pm!
