State Meet Logistics (UPDATED)

We qualified 26 kids to the State Meet this weekend, in a multitude of events.  I am not sure if that is a record, but is a number we are pretty proud of!

We start on Thursday morning at 8:15, and hopefully end on Saturday afternoon at 4:15.  That makes for a long three days, so make sure you are rested and ready to go.

State Meet Schedule for Chaparral is:

8:15 SMR (P), 8:30 Discus (F), 8:35 100m (P), 
8:55 3200 (F), 9:25 4 x 200 (P), 
11:20 4 x 800 (F), 12:25 200 (P), 1:30 4 x 400 (P)

10:05 4 x 100 (P), 12:00 SMR (F), 12:50 800 (F), 
1:40 4 x 200 (F), 4:10 200 (F)

10:30 100 (F), 10:30 ShotPut (F), 2:50 4 x 100 (F), 
3:10 1600 (F), 4:15 4 x 400 (F)

Women compete right before the men do, (P) stands for preliminary round, (F) stands for final round.

Like I said, a busy three days, and that doesn't even consider the banquet on Saturday night at 6:00 pm at Chaparral!

If you are not competing on Thursday, Friday or Saturday, please make sure to get your uniform turned in to Coach Hawk as soon as possible.  You don't want a exorbitant fee on your CHS record.

On Thursday, there will be a bus to the State Meet, and we expect all the competing athletes and the alternates to be on that bus.  The bus leaves CHS at 6:15 sharp.  I will not be on the bus, I will already be at the stadium setting up our camp in an ideal spot.  To say it is going to be crowded is an understatement!

So, make sure you are getting some sleep, eating well, and staying hydrated.  This is going to be a big weekend for us, I think we are primed for some awesome performances at State!


UPDATE:  My mistake, I thought the discus events were one right after another, with the ladies going first.  It is actually men throwing the disc at 8:30 on Thursday, then the women throw the disc at 11:30 on Thursday.  Can't wait to watch Brendon and Mia compete Thursday morning!
