Saturday’s meet against Newbury Park marks the end of the regular season, and it was a great one!  Once again, we had some chilly, damp weather, which doesn’t usually equate to fast times.  There were quite a few athletes competing for championship spots and PR’s and it was great to see how hard they all competed and supported each other.

We are now moving on to the championships!  As a reminder, ALL athletes are eligible to compete in the Conference Finals on May 4th.  We will be practicing as normal this week, with regular team practices on Monday and Wednesday and a full schedule of specialty practices on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.  Wednesday’s practice will be a quick workout, followed by a team BBQ/picnic in the grass area behind the bathrooms until probably around 6:30.  We hope EVERYONE can attend!

This will be the last week of practice for those athletes who did not qualify (unless you are chosen for a relay team) for the Conference Championships.  Let’s make the most of it and have a great last meet on Saturday!

We’d like to congratulate the list of athletes below who have qualified for the Conference Championships on May 11th.  This is a huge accomplishment!  This season has been by far the most challenging year we’ve seen to qualify in just about every event.  The athletes below have qualified for individual events – we will also be working this week to finalize relay spots and should have that solidified by the end of Wednesday practice.  Our goal is to send as many athletes as possible to the Co-Conference Championship on May 18th and we will be asking for many of our athletes to run relays at the Conference Finals on May 4th and the Conference Championships on May 11th.  Please stay tuned for the announcement of those teams.
