Important Track Changes and information, Please read thoroughly

Next Practice is Sunday April 8, Williams high School 3:30-5:00 Please make a big effort to have your children attend! We are starting to assign races for our meet and running on the track is essential! Thank you to all of those who have been regularly attending!

Sunday April 8, Practice at Williams
Sunday April 17, Blue V/S Gold Track Meet at Williams High School, 3:00 p.m.
(instead of minimeet at Bishop)
Sunday April 22, Last Sunday Practice before the Bishop Meet
Sunday April 29, PECSAA Meet, Bishop McGuinness High School, 1:00 p.m.
Sunday, May 6, PECSAA Meet RAIN DATE, Bishop McGuinness High School

Blue v/s Gold Meet will include all children and will be run like a regular track meet. We need to know ASAP if your child cannot attend as we will be creating the teams and we want them to be as equal as possible. 


The PECCSA Meet is around the corner! We are hoping that you have saved this date as we will need most of our runners to be available. Please let me know ASAP if your child CANNOT attend. Please also be aware that we can only enter one boy and one girl for each event (except relays).

Our goal is to maximize points by using the fastest runners first so there may be a few children in lower grades, that will be assigned as a back up runner. There are also several grades with too few children so we will ask those who don't have a race in their grade to run up a grade level to help us gain points.

All of the competing teams will be doing the same. Any event that we do not have a runner in, costs us points! We will give out race assignments for this meet the week after our Blue v/s Gold meet. We are in the process of assigning relay teams, so AGAIN, please notify me ASAP if your child cannot attend, so we can assign events accordingly.

These track meets are full of excitement and fun! We hope everyone can make them both!

Jen Klein, Keith Rugh, Tara Hackman
