March 11-12 - Meet Information

Our first varsity meet of the season is already upon us, the annual Continental League Relays!

Some important logistical details are:

The meet is at the new Parker Stadium, which is at the corner of S. Chambers Road and Newlin Gulch Blvd. The easiest way to get there from the high school is to take S. Chambers Road, across Lincoln, across E. Main St, and the stadium is right there in front of you.

The meet starts at 8:30 with a coaches meeting, (UPDATE: Coaches meeting is now at 8:15) and gets done at 2:30 with awards. However, I would be surprised if it actually was done at 2:30, most varsity meets run long, and I know that the host school, Mtn. Vista, wants the meet to run well, not just on time. So, if we are there a little while longer, no biggie.

Here is the official schedule of the meet.
(Ignore the date discrepancy, the schedule is still the same)

Since this meet is literally right in our own backyards, we expect anyone competing in a field event to be there by 7:30 am at the latest, and anyone participating in a track event by 8:15 am at the latest. Even if you are not participating in the meet until the afternoon, we want you there early; to make sure you are settled, to make sure you have everything you need to compete well, and we want you there to cheer on your teammates of course.

Everyone will find out today at practice if they have been selected to the varsity squad for this weekend. If they have not been chosen for varsity, you will be participating in the JV meet on Friday afternoon at Chaparral. Remember, if you run a great time at a JV meet and beat a varsity kid, more than likely, you will find yourself moving up to the varsity meet the following weekend. So, give it your all at the JV meet on Friday!
