Track Update - April 17

Darts -
There are 5 weeks left in the season. Each week is highlighted with one important meet:
April 22 - Woods Cross Invite
April 30 - Davis Invite
May 6-7 - BYU Invite
May 11-12 - Region Championships
May 20-21 - State Championships

The end of the season is going to be here before you know it. I feel that we had an excellent start to this season - the Super Meet and the District Meet showed that we are one of our strongest TEAMs ever - for both the boys and the girls. But now we have to get even stronger for the final 5 weeks. We have got to give our all every chance we have left in workouts and in races. Seniors I want you to finish up with the best 5 weeks of your career in track & field. Juniors and Sophomores - I want you to focus on becoming our future leaders. Give your heart and soul into these final five weeks. Compete and train with purpose and with desire. If you do so, you will look back at this season and what we accomplish with great memories. It doesn't matter if you are the best in your event or not - it does matter what kind of effort you give and what kind of attitude you have. Everybody can have an effect on the way we perform as a TEAM through their efforts and attitude.
Other teams in the state have showed that they are coming after us. Nobody is going to lay down and just give us a state or a region title. Don't let yourselves get content or satisfied with where you are - fight with all you have over the final weeks to become the very best you can. I want you to end the season satisfied with your efforts and your progress. Prepare yourselves for each workout and each race both mentally and physically. Take extra good care of yourselves. Eat healthy. Get extra sleep. Ice when you need to ice. Stretch after workouts. Continue to do your abs and your core work. Most of all - believe in yourselves and in your teammates. Be positive and continue to sacrifice for one another. We have an opportunity to finish this season by doing some great things. But it is going to take commitment and effort from everyone on the TEAM. Really bring that commitment, energy, excitement, and focus to everything we do this week - even in hosting a Junior High Meet. Love what you are doing - take pride in being part of DAVIS TRACK & FIELD!!!

We have a busy week coming up:
Monday - Kaysville Junior High track & field clinic at 3:00 - We are building the future of our track program.
Tuesday - TEAM pictures @ 2:45 in the bleachers (bring your uniforms). This is the picture that will go in the yearbook.
Wednesday - Tri Meet at Clearfield with Weber & Clearfield. You will be excused at 1:15 from 4th period (track class day). The girls have challenged the boys to see who can score the most points.
Thursday - Junior High Meet with Kaysville, Farmington, Centerville, and Bountiful - plan on helping out and having a lot of fun.
Friday - Woods Cross Invitational - The meet begins at 3:30. I would really like to have a strong TEAM meet. We will see some good competetion and it is a state qualifying meet.

Davis Invite Sponsors - Please make one last push to get sponsors for the Davis Invite. This is our biggest track TEAM ever, but so far, we are just average with our amount of sponsors. In order to get the sponsor names on the shirts, I will need to know by Wednesday this week at the latest. Thank you to those who have found sponsors and for those families and businesses who have been willing to help us out.

Focus, Determination, Teamwork, Belief
