CTK Track news for the week of 29 Mar 10...

Greetings Track Families,

Thanks to all of the families who pitched in to make our meet on Saturday run so efficiently. Results are now posted and will turn up on soon.

Missing Radio!
Did anyone accidentally take home one of our walkie-talkies attached to your belt after our meet? I have hunted everywhere but can't find one. Please let me know right away if you have it.

Speaking of lost items, the Lost & Found page on the web site is amassing quite a collection of clothing. Is anything yours?

Spring Break
This week we will begin our Easter break. There will be no practice Thursday, no meet next Saturday (April 3), and no practice the Tuesday after Easter (April 6). There will not even be a weekly newsletter next Sunday evening with which to curl up. (Parents are encouraged to send their kids out running every time they say, "I'm bored" over Spring Break.)

The weather for Tuesday may not cooperate, so remember to check the Twitter box on the home page of the web site after 4pm Tuesday in case rains forces a cancellation.

More YVHS Athletes for Hire
Our next meet, on Saturday April 10, will be at Ygnacio Valley High School in Concord. If you are scheduled to work that day, you can again hire an Ygnacio Valley HS athlete to work in your place. Please let me or Katy, our tireless volunteer coordinator, know if you would like to do so and we'll set it up..

Relay Meet
Our next meet will be the annual Mary Chatterton Memorial Relay Meet, named in honor of the late coordinator of the St. Agnes track team. The meet will consist of just three relay races but will involve athletes from seven other parishes and will take about as long as a regular meet.

Since it comes at the end of Spring Break for many schools, we understand that lots of families are away for the week which is completely fine so long as you tell your athlete's coach. (See the Staff page on the web site for contact info for one coach from each primary group.)

The races this year are the 4x100m relay, the medley relay (200/200/400/800m), and either the 4x200m relay (grades 2-4) or the 4x400m relay (grades 5-8).

Have a very happy Easter! See you on the track,

Carl Godkin
CTK/SC/SS Track & Field Coordinator
