Tomorrow is our final regular season meet of the season – we will be hosting Moorpark Striders and Ojai Roadrunners – two clubs that we always enjoy competing with. We are planning to start this meet right after the Buena High Track Team finishes their Gordon Steward Frosh/Soph Invitational.
We should be good to start at 3:30 but will not be starting any sooner, so all age groups should plan on arriving around 2:30-3:00. If the Buena meet gets done any sooner, then we will have more time to warm up. We expect to wrap up this meet around 8:30-9:00.
After this meet we have JV Finals (May 2nd) and Varsity Finals (May 9th). With some exceptions, all athletes are able to compete at JV Finals. For Varsity Finals, the top 9 or 12 athletes in the league (per gender/age group/event). In some cases where more then 9 (or 12) have made a varsity qualifying mark in a particular event (http://www.vcytc.org/varsity-standards/), then another heat for that event will be created and then top 9 would become top 18 (e.g. 100m, 200m, 400m). Also, each club gets one relay team per age group/gender which is generally comprised of the “A” team, and some will get two (club with the fastest “B” team). The top marks list which is the basis for the varsity meet seeding is maintained at athletic.net – you can go to the VCYTC Performance list and filter by age group to get an idea if your athlete may qualify or is very close to qualifying (here: http://www.athletic.net/TrackAndField/Division/Top.aspx?DivID=63830). After Varsity Finals, the following weekend is the Championship Meet (May 16th) with the other conference (SCYTFC).
More information on the seeding process for the Varisty meet will be send out by Tigres and/or your coaches after our meet.
Good luck tomorrow Tigres, we hope to see everyone there and looking forward to some great performances!
