This is the final track update of the season (although I will still be sending out an email about Kaysville City Youth Track). There are just a few things I wanted to make sure you were all aware of. . .
TEAM Barbecue/Awards Banquet - will be on Thursday, May 30th at Barnes Park at 5:30 at the big pavilion by the sand volleyball on the east side of the park. We will need some help getting some grills there and getting things set up. I hope you can all make it. The barbecue is for athletes only - we will not have enough burgers for parents. We are asking that anyone who would like will please bring dessert (cookies, brownies, popsicles, etc). The rest of the food/drink will be provided.
Uniforms - Should have been handed in last Thursday. For the 60 of you who still have your uniforms, please bring them by my classroom on Tuesday or Wednesday or bring them to track class on Tuesday. Fines will be turned in on Thursday.
Other Equipment - If any of you have shoes, throwing implements, or anything else that you have borrowed from the TEAM - please bring them back this week. Also - if any seniors have used spikes they would like to donate to the program, there will always be use for them in the future - just drop them off with me at any time.
Cross Country Meeting - will be on Friday, May 31st at 2:45 in my classroom (#2512) - please help me spread the word to people who may not be award. We will be going over our summer training program.
Decathlon/Heptathlon - For those interested, we will begin the decathlon/heptathlon on Tuesday near the end of track class. It will continue on Wednesday after school. This is for members of Davis Track only.
Adidas Dream Mile - Congratulations to Shea Martinez for her very solid effort on a cold, windy day in New York City yesterday. She finished with a 4:55 in the full mile. Shea finishes the season ranked #7 in the U.S. in the 800m, and in the top 25 in the mile.
Graduate Update - Congrats to Jared Ward (BYU) for qualifying for the NCAA National Championship in the 10,000m. He will race at the Nationals in 2 weeks in Eugene, OR. Also congrats to Candace Eddy (BYU) for finishing 18th at the Western Regionals - just narrowly missing qualifying for the NCAA Finals, and Bryce Hall for qualifying for the NCAA West Regional in both the hammer throw and the discus. And congrats to all of the Davis alumni for their outstanding college seasons. They continue to represent Davis well.
It has been a great season. I look forward to working with many of you again next year. Best of luck to our seniors - our hearts will be with you. Show the world what you are made of.
- Coach Talley
