Athletes & Parents,

We’ve had to change the entries a great deal due to the annual “Team Plague”, which has many athletes out. Typically we don’t have the plague twice in a season, so I suppose it’s always great to get it out of the way! We did however have a record 17 out from practice today.

The entry List is attached for tomorrow’s meet. Remember all athletes are responsible for practice from 6:30-8:30am, but only those competing tomorrow have to attend the meet at North Central.

  • Bus will depart at 8:40am.
  • Meet begins at 11:30am.
  • Meet expected to end at 2:00pm.
  • Bus will return around 3:00pm.

Rest up and don’t forget to hydrate!
