CTK Track News for the week of 19 Apr 10...

Greetings Track Families,

We had beautiful weather in Granada yesterday for our final "practice meet." I especially want to recognize and thank the volunteers we pulled from the stands to fill in for some (ahem) no-shows. Thank you very much! Results are not posted yet unfortunately but I'm sure they will appear soon.

We'll practice twice this week as usual.
  • Tuesday, April 20, 5-6:30pm at College Park HS track
  • Thursday, April 22, 5-6:30pm at College Park HS track
The forecast for this Tuesday is rainy so please remember to check the "Twitter box" on the web site home page after 4pm to see if practice has been cancelled due to rain.

Qualifying Meet
Next Saturday is our Qualifying Meet. The location was finally announced on Friday night:
  • Saturday, April 24, 9am at Ygnacio Valley HS track
Briefly, the qualifying meet will determine who qualifies for the Sectional Championship meet the following week. This meet will be just like our regular meets except for two differences:
  • Second graders run as third graders from now on
  • Relay teams must be gender-pure, parish-pure, and grade-pure.
To save many of you reading about this for the millionth time, I have started a new page on the web site called "FAQ" where the first two entries attempt to address all of the most frequently asked questions about the Qualifying Meet and the Sectional Championship Meet.
Please check there first, and then call or write with any remaining questions. (Old-timers are encouraged to proofread that page since I just wrote it!)

Lost & Found
The collection continues to grow. Please check the "Lost & Found" page on the web site if you left something at Granada yesterday. If the item is not there, it may be in the snack shack at Granada High School. After the meet yesterday, a coach from St. Michael and I wandered around the track picking up clothing. I took some with me if I recognized them or if there was a name or (say) a local swim team insignia, and she took some with her. We just guessed on the rest.

Picnic Coming
As kids finish their season with us, I want to remind everyone to mark their calendars for Sunday, May 30 when we'll have our annual Team Picnic where we hand out lots of awards. More details are coming on that, but I hope you'll save the date.

See you on the track,


Carl Godkin
CTK/SC/SS Track & Field Coordinator
