MIDGETS – We Need Help! Cheer On The Runners This Sunday!

Mountains to Beach Marathon is this Sunday and Tigre’s is running a cheer station.  All our Tigres know how much it helps to have someone cheering for you when competing.  The Marathoners would really appreciate the Tigres support.  If we have the best cheer station, we can raise money towards helping families join Tigres who might need a hand.  Can we count on the Midget team to spend a few hours on Sunday morning to help the runners and make the best cheer station out there?!?!?!

Here are the details: https://www.venturatigres.org/2017-mountains2beach-marathon-cheer-station/

Let’s show that Midget team spirit!

MIDGETS – CCC Meet Qualifying and Practice This Week

We will be practicing on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 4:30-6:00.  Every athlete that participated in the Conference Championship meet on Saturday should come to practice this week until we have a firm answer on who has qualified.  The top four (plus the better 5th place mark between the VCYTC and SCYTFC) in laned events and field events, along with the top 8 in distance events (800, 1600 and 3200) move on to the CCC meet on Saturday at Ventura High School.  However, there is a chance that athletes who finish outside of those places may move on to compete.  Athletes are only allowed to compete in four events (with a max of 3 individual events and 1 relay) so some athletes will have to drop events and others may just choose not to compete in some events.  If an athlete(s) in the top 4 or 8 choose to drop an event, the next place will move up into that spot.  Some events may have multiple drops.  We should find out in the next couple of days who has officially moved on.

Also, all athletes that participated in the Conference Championship – please email midgets@venturatigres.org and let us know what events you plan to participate in on Saturday at the CCC if eligible.  As a reminder, it is 4 total events, of which 3 can be individual.  You can run 2 individual plus 2 relays or 3 individual plus 1 relay.  Individual events can be running or field events.

One other piece of great news.  Two of our 4×400 teams that competed at League Finals qualified for the CCC meet by having a time to beat enough teams in the Conference Championship meet.  Congratulations!!!  The following athletes who were on those teams should also come to practice this week.

Girls – Chelsea Ochoa, Jocelyn Thomas, Ryan Maquanalez and Sofia Stepan

Boys – Vincent Mueller, Justin DeLeon, Braden Herrera and Merric Bayless

If you have any questions, please shoot me an email at midgets@venturatigres.org or call me at 650-678-3681

MIDGETS – End of Season Picnic and Movies

Thanks to all who came to the picnic today.  It was a great season and all of us coaches are going to miss spending time with the Midgets.

For those of you who were unable to attend, you can pick up your gift and packet (ribbons/medals, PR sheet, team photo and goal sheet if you turned one in) at the practices held this week for the athletes who have qualified for the CCC meet this Saturday.  You can stop by anytime during practice which will be from 4:30-6:00 on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.

I will be sending out a separate post about all of the athletes who have qualified to move on.

Here are the links to the movies we showed today at the picnic:

MIDGETS – End of Season Picnic – Movie Trailer

The end of the season picnic is only a week away (next Sunday).  During the picnic, we watch a season highlight movie, so here is a bit of a teaser for what is to come.

We will also be giving some gifts to the athletes, so you don’t want to miss this.  Please remember, Midget families are to bring a dessert to share (enough for 12).  Here is the post to more info:

Tigres End-of-Season Team Picnic — May 7th

MIDGETS – Conference Championship and Co-Conference Championship Relay Teams

We wil be sending 4×100 and 4×400 teams for both boys and girls to the Conference Championships this weekend.  We also have a boys 4×400 and girls 4×400 that competed this past weekend at the League Finals that have a strong chance of moving on to the Co-Conference Championship on May 13th at Ventura High School.

To determine what relay teams move on to the Co-Conference Championships on May 13th, all of the times (in the Midget age group) from the League Finals East and West (where we competed) from this past Saturday and the times from this coming weekend’s Conference Championship are combined. The top 4 team times in both the 4×100 and 4×400 relay between the League Finals and the Conference Championship automatically qualify to move on to the Co-Conference Championship.  The faster of the 5th place relay team’s time between the VCYTC’s Conference Championship and the SCYTFC’s Conference Championship will then move on to compete in the Co-Conference Championship.

If there are any athletes listed on Conference Championship relay teams that can not make it to both the meets on May 6th and May 13th, please let me know.  If there are any athletes listed on the “Potential Co-Conference Relay teams that can not make it on May 13th, please let me know.  We will be having practice as usual for all of these athletes for the next week as described in this post:

 

Here are the relay teams!

Conference Championship Relay Teams

Girls 4×100 – Love Jones, Ryan Mendez, Lily Shadden, Jaylin Batis

Boys 4×100 – Maliki Crawford, Ben Marcus, Merric Bayless, Ethan Scalfaro
