CTK Track news for the week of 11 Apr 2010...

Greetings Track Families,

Welcome back to everyone who has been away for spring break!

Relay Meet
The relay meet yesterday was a lot of fun despite the unseasonably windy and cold conditions.
Results are posted on the web site and have been uploaded to

Between our meet at Ygnacio Valley and the other relay meet at DVC, ten new records were
set including one by the 6th grade boys medley team of Marco Monti, Ian Dota-Clemens, Jake
Simpson, and David Phair. (The record they broke was just set by a CTK/SC team last year.)
Our 7th grade girls St. Catherine team of Helene Hollidge, Allie Timbrell, Tara Schueller and
Janean Bell also broke the old medley relay, but alas a St. Joan of Arc team running at DVC
did too, and they were faster.

We will have ribbons for 1st through 5th place (combining heats) this week at practice.

We will try to practice twice this week as usual but it may be a challenge practicing on Tuesday.
The College Park HS lacrosse team has a 5pm game on Tuesday so we can't practice at the track.
Last season, we moved to the grass field behind the baseball diamond once or twice but the
rain today and tomorrow may prevent us doing even that. Please check the "Twitter Box" on
the web site's home page where I'll post an update by 4pm Tuesday.

On Thursday we'll practice from 5-6:30pm as usual on the track.

Next Meet
Our meet next Saturday will take place at Granada High School in Livermore at 9am which
is 40-45 minutes away. Please plan accordingly to get your athletes to the meet on time!

Granada High School features "fully automated timing" which will relieve many of the timers
and judges of working most of the events. We'll still need volunteers as relay judges and
to staff the opposite side 50m & 100m. Granada even has two high jump pits so the volunteer
schedule has been reworked to reflect all these changes. (We'll give the boys the glory of the
home side this time, and send the girls to the opposite side.)

Granada has a very nice facility and will be hosting the League Championship and
Diocesan Championship meets this season. They feature a big snack bar, which is
a major fundraiser for their track and field team so have a bite of lunch while you're
there! Directions to Granada are on the web site, or plug "400 Wall St., Livermore"
into your navigation system.

That's all for this week. See you on the track,


Carl Godkin
CTK/SC/SS Track & Field Coordinator
