Thursday and Saturday were our sectional championships. Congratulations to everyone who competed, regardless of final placement. I plan to post results to Athletic.net tonight. The list of athletes who qualified to go on to the Diocese Meet is here. Ribbons should be coming soon. We'll surely have a backlog of them to hand out at the picnic, too.
Final practices Tuesday & Thursday
Our last two! Tuesday at Pleasant Hill Middle, Thursday at College Park, 5:00-6:30pm. All athletes on the team are welcome to attend, not just finalists.
Order of events and other info is here.
800m and 1600m events
Friday, May 6 at Moreau High School, Hayward, 6:00pm start (first race 6:30pm)
Parade and remaining events
Saturday, May 7 at Granada High School, Livermore, Arrive at 8:00am, parade starts 8:30
Back to Livermore if your athlete qualified at Sectionals. There's an all-diocese "parade of champions" before the meet which our team leads, as we come earliest in the alphabet in the first section. All team athletes are welcome to march in the parade.
There's the same small admission fee to Saturday's event: $4 and $2. Look for the CTK group in the same place, by the away stands near the baseball field.
Athletes should be in uniform, and will not need stickers. Those are just done by our league to keep our results organized.
Did your athlete make it to diocese? Congratulations! Expect to be contacted about volunteer assignments for Saturday. This will go online via Signup Genius as soon as we know what positions our team needs to fill.
Have you RSVP'd yet? Please do:
The team provides cold drinks and hot charcoal grills: you bring something to grill for your family and something to share with the team. Salads, fruit -- picnic fare, nothing fancy.
Picnic is from around 11:30-3:00 on Saturday May 28 at Pleasant Hill Park. We should have the fires hot by noonish, and we'll start awards around 1:00pm. Note that there are awards for Sportsmanship, Team Spirit, Effort, etc. in addition to performance-based awards. We'd like to see all athletes and families at the picnic. Some awards are more likely to go to athletes who are known to be attending, so RSVP!
Our site is the covered tables near the youth center, at Gregory and Cleaveland. Look for the team banner.
I think that's it for now.
