CTK Track News for week of 5 May 08...

Greetings Track Families,

Congratulations to all of our athletes who participated in this weekend's Sectional Meet (a/k/a League Championship Meet) at Heritage and Granada High Schools! Win or finish last, it's a big honor to make it that far. We had a large number of qualifiers for this meet and those who attended these meets know that many of our athletes did very well and will go on to next weekend's Diocese Championship Meet.

Our final two practices will be at our usual time and place:
  • Tuesday, May 6, from 5 to 6:30pm, at College Park High School
  • Thursday, May 8, from 5 to 6:30pm, at College Park High School
The Diocese Meet is also run in two parts, but this time the 1600m, the 800m and the 7th & 8th grade boys high jump will take place on Friday night at Chabot College in Hayward starting at 6:30pm. Note that the order of the various heats is, well, weird:
1. 1600 METER —
5 4 3 GIRLS 5 4 3 BOYS
8 7 6 GIRLS 8 7 6 BOYS
2. 800 METER —
5 4 3 GIRLS 5 4 3 BOYS
8 7 6 GIRLS 8 7 6 BOYS

The rest of the meet will take place back at Granada High School in Livermore. There is a complete schedule (including field event order), all of which is somewhat different from what we're used to at
I also put quite a bit of information, including preliminary Diocese Championship Meet entries, on the web site's home page.
Please have a look, especially if your athlete qualified.

As I said last week, we welcome all athletes at practice, qualifiers or not.

Two more small items of business:
  1. We will be looking for a few more brave volunteers to work at the Diocese Meet. If your child qualified, please volunteer or accept an assignment if we contact you.
  2. I've been asked to remind you that Marcia Eaton is still accepting contributions for coach appreciation. You can still mail a donation if you choose to Marcia at: 16 Sheila Court, Pleasant Hill 94523
See you on the track,


Carl Godkin
CTK/SC/SS Track & Field Coordinator
