Last CTK Track News for the 2010 season...

Greetings track families,

The 2010 CYO Season is now behind us aside from the picnic. If you and your athlete have not had enough track and field, I have a few ideas for you below.

Diocesan Championship Meet
Our athletes had a very successful weekend at the Diocesan Championship Meet Friday evening and Saturday. As soon as the Diocese posts the results, I'll post a link on our web site. I added the Sectional results to today and will add the Diocese results when they are available.

CTK Parish Festival
The Christ the King annual Parish Festival is next weekend. It starts Friday evening and continues Saturday and Sunday. If your kids miss seeing their track teammates, there's an excellent chance that they will see many of them (or even most of them in the case of the middle school kids) at the festival. There are games, food, live music, and lots and lots of people!

Want More Running?
If your child is especially interested in continuing with track, Diablo Valley Track & Field Club might be for you. Please check their web site at

If you are interested in a track & field summer camp, De La Salle High School is offering two sessions. See the announcement at if you are interested.

You will find a great number of your teammates, coaches, and parents at Pleasant Hill's 4th of July Firecracker 5k race. See the city's site at as we get closer to the date.

CYO Cross Country starts in late August. It's a lot of fun and pretty low-key compared to track. I'll send an announcement out before the season starts.

This Mailing List
I will send out only about three more emails to this mailing list before retiring. First, I'll send you a reminder shortly before the picnic. Second, I'll send you a CYO Cross Country announcement as I mentioned above. Third, I'll send an announcement in early January 2011 (!!) announcing CYO track again.

I hope to see you all at the awards picnic on Sunday, May 30, at Pleasant Hill Park. It's three short weeks away! It's been a pleasure working with your kids all season and of course a lot of fun running the track meets with all of you parents. Thank you for another terrific season!

See you in the park,


Carl Godkin
CTK/SC/SS Track & Field Coordinator
