Track news for the week of April 21

The Qualifying meet is the last chance for families to complete their volunteer commitments to the team. It's going to be a long meet -- why not work a double shift and watch the hours slip by?

I'll get the volunteer schedule published as soon as possible. Check the Twitter feed or main page of the web site for updates, and look for the link on the "Volunteers" page:

  • Life after April 27
If your athletes qualify on the 27th: congratulations! We hope to see them at practice.

If your athletes don't qualify on the 27th: darn! We still hope to see them at practice. Practice is always open to everyone on the team.

We're sure to be given jobs to fill at the Sectional meet at Granada High in Livermore. It's a nice facility, but a bit of a drive, so please plan accordingly if you will be making the trip.

Double check that your GPS shows you the correct route, too, since an exit from 580 was removed a little while back, forcing a strange, winding trip to the school. A scenic drive past the regional airport is in your future...

There is an 8:30am start time for the sectional and diocese meets. 

The sectional meet is May 3 and 4, and the diocese championship is May 10 and 11. Distance events are run in the evenings on Friday, just to keep life interesting.

You'll hear more about these weekends after we get past the 27th, but the program for the final meet is available now from our web site:

Yes, the order of events is different, and yes, there is such a thing as the "tetherball toss."
