CTK Track News for the week of 6 Mar 2011

Greetings Track Families,

Thank you VERY much to everyone who helped out at the Mini Meet on Saturday.  I think the meet went very well.  Unfortunately we had a number late cancellations and no-shows among the meet volunteers, but many of you stuck around for a second shift and helped double (or, the case of one enterprising family, quintuple).  I want to also thank our experienced volunteers who passed on their knowledge to the newer volunteers.

Meet Results
I have typed in a lot of the CTK/SC/SS Mini Meet results on which we'll use all season.  (We have results since 2007, for the history buffs!)   Our part of the site is here:

If you spot any obvious errors, please report them and I'll try to fix them.  We did have a few races where we didn't get all the times, and the places for each race are listed by heat, and not consolidated.  I will get the rest of the field events typed in and maybe the relay results too when I get a chance.  We don't have ribbons for this meet, but we will for the rest of the season.

First of all, we have apparently had our last practice on the date of a home lacrosse game.  We were caught off guard on Tuesday but it is not scheduled to happen again this season.

This week we'll have a sort of unusual practice schedule.  
  • Practice - Tuesday 3/8 -  5-6:15pm - College Park HS track
  • Practice - Thursday 3/10 - 5-6pm - College Park HS track
Starting the following week, the rest of our practices will be 5-6:30pm since we'll go on Daylight Savings Time next weekend.

Please note the 6pm finish on Thursday.  All of the Coaches have to attend a league "Coach Certification" workshop on Thursday evening after practice so please be extra sure to pick up your kids on time that evening.  We always keep one male and one female coach at College Park until all of the kids are collected and it would be nice if we didn't have to wait around for once.

Next Meet
Our first league meet will be at Diablo Valley College track (right across the street from where we practice) at 9am on Saturday, March 12.  Meet assignments are all posted and you should receive reminder phone calls later in the week.  We will have help at the meet from the other parishes running in the meet, but everyone assigned to work needs to do their part.

The meet will be just like Saturday's effort except for two things:
1. We'll run the boys' 50m and 100m races on the opposite side of the track at the same time as the girls will be running on the "home' side.  This really speeds up the meet.
2. We'll finish up with some relay races that we didn't have time for at the Mini Meet.

Our guests this week at DVC will be St. Ignatius (again), St. Francis of Assisi, St. Agnes, and Queen of All Saints.

See you on the track,


Carl Godkin
CTK/St.C/St.S Track & Field Coordinator
