News and Announcements
Weather uncertainty is coming our way, so just a few adjustments to this week:
Place your belongings in the locker commons and report directly down to the track and warm-up. We will begin promptly at 2:45pm. The workout should begin by 3:05pm.
For tomorrow, Monday, expect a shorter practice that ends at 4:15 pm, due to the rain. Those who are competing in the December indoor meets should report to the track fieldhouse at 4:00 pm to pick up a uniform. (Those students know they are competing). I will remain there until 4:30pm should anyone have an issue with rides. No weight room on Mondays.
For Wednesday 12/8- the weather “I think” will be cold, but ok. Distance will be doing a regular run to Wildlife Sanctuary, then can come to the weight room. For all other students, there will be a very short running workout, then we received permission to go to the weight room early. Expect practice to end by 4:30pm latest, even with weight room time, just in case a bit of light snow arrives.
Plan on bringing an umbrella and a poncho tomorrow for our final meet against talented Stroudsburg High School. Focus on being prepared tomorrow, warm up, cool down, and cheer on your team until the very end.
Arrival times: Sprinters and Hurdlers arrive 2:00 pm for screens
Distance and Pole vault arrive 2:10 pm for screens
Throwers, Jumpers, and Development 2:20 pm for screens
Meet begins at 3:30pm

ALL SENIORS – THIS IS IT! THIS IS THE FINAL DUAL MEET OF YOUR HIGH SCHOOL CAREER. How do you want it to go? Control the factors you can control to have the best meet of the season!

Please remember to sanitize hands/wash hands after touching equipment. Let’s be as safe as possible for our final dual meet of the year.
LET’S GO TRACK AND FIELD HORNETS!!!!!!! LAST ONE, BEST ONE!!!!
“Work hard, be prepared, and have fun!”
We love everything about Parkland – amazing team, amazing coaches, and will be great competition for our athletes. Who will be able to stand the heat? Our team has surely been put to the test with weather extremes in our meets this season, which means we will be prepared no matter what comes for Leagues and Districts. So, take the challenge and control what you can control, to do your best.
For those riding the bus, athletes arrive at the Sports Center at 1:45pm
Bus departure 2:00pm
For those self commuting, arrive at Parkland’s Track Stadium by 2:20pm
Meet starts 3:30 pm
Only 2 spectators per athlete, and this will be strictly enforced by Parkland at the gate, as they have our athlete travel list. It’s done in effort to keep everyone safe, due to the large numbers of both of our teams.
Work hard, be prepared, and have fun!
