We are successfully through the first stage of our season. The girls and boys both had big wins at the Super Meet and the District Championships. The next phase of our season includes a lot of hard work and preparation. Don't settle for what you have done so far. Be determined to get stronger and faster. We have some great opportunities in front of us to prove how good we can be. Work hard, take care of yourselves, set some goals - and then get after it. Have fun and enjoy being part of a great TEAM in the meantime. Our next dual meet (for everyone) is on Wednesday, April 8 at home against Fremont. Our next state qualifying invitational is the Woods Cross Invite on Friday, April 17.
District Championships - We put together a dominating performance for both the boys and the girls at the District Meet at Syracuse on Tuesday and Wednesday. There are way too many highlights to go over, but I will point out the meet records. Aubrey Argyle set a meet record with her win in the 3200m in a time of 11:11 (she also won the 1600m in 5:02). Paige Erickson set a new meet and Utah State record in the pole vault with 10'08. The boys 4 x 100m relay team of Riley Stringham, Jacob Moffett, Jordan Goldsberry, and Ty Hinds set the meet record with 43.22. And Logan MacKay set a new meet record in the 1600m with 4:19. Other event winners included Nate Allred (6'07 in the high jump), Matt Calvin (12'05 in the pole vault and 20'08 in the long jump), Dallin Baires (163 in the discus and 46' in the shot put), Ty Hinds (11.03 in the 100m); Jaron Erickson (15.19 in the 110m hurdles); Palmer Flood (39.33 in the 300m hurdles); Stokton Smith (1:58 in the 800m), Logan MacKay (9:34 in the 3200m); Alicia Stucki (104' in the javelin); Jordan Barnett (45.89 in the 300m hurdles); and Ally Geisler (2:17 in the 800m).

UVU Invite - We had a very small group go down to the UVU Invite on Saturday. Our pole vaulters did very well - Matt Calvin and Harrison Haslam finished 3rd and 4th; Paige Erickson finished 2nd; Ashlee Lawson finished 6th; Ashley Taylor qualified for state; and Jaxon Potter had a big PR with 11'06. We had a few brave athletes try the steeplechase for the first time - Rachel Johnson finished 2nd, Tiahna Cipriano was 3rd, and Sydnee Rayl was 5th. For the boys, Daniel Tumblin finished 3rd, Josh Christiansen was 4th, Jason Lang was 5th, and Jackson Rayl was 6th. Full results can be seen on www.runnercard.com
Spring Break Workouts - We are meeting at the track on Monday-Wednesday-Thursday. The distance runners are meeting at 8:00am, the rest of the events will workout at 9:00am. None of the workouts will take really long. Our goal over spring break is to 1) maintain what we have built (fitness, speed, skill, etc). 2) get some much needed rest that will carry us through the rest of the season. If you are in town, you are expected to be at the workouts.
If you are out of town, and have the ability or facilities to workout - here are some ideas:
Monday - 1 mile warm up, 2.5 mile tempo run (roughly 16 minute) 6 x :30 fast, 1 mile cool down
Tuesday - 4-8 mile run + abs
Wednesday - 4-8 mile run + abs
Thursday - Intervals 2 x 3:00, 3 x 2:00, 4 x 1:00; Or 12-15 x 1:00 on a hill
Friday - 4-8 mile run + abs
Saturday - 6-10 mile run + abs
Monday - Warm up and Drills; 12 x 100m on grass (about 15 seconds) or track; Core Work (abs)
Tuesday - 2 mile run (or bike ride or hike) + core work and stretching
Wednesday - Warm up and Drills; 4 x 300m on grass (50-60 seconds) or track
Thursday - Warm up; 12 x :20 on a hill. Walk down for recovery; Core Work
Friday - Off
Saturday - 2 mile run (or bike ride or hike) + core work and stretching
Practice Footwork as much as you can
Weight Room if available
Do core work; lunges; wall sits; squats; calf raises; push ups - if you can't find a weight room.
Apparel - All of the clothing order has arrived. You may pick it up this week at the spring break practices or on Monday when we come back from the break - IF YOU HAVE PAID. Thanks.
Davis Invite Sponsors - We are still looking for sponsors for the Davis Invite. The information is attached to this email. There are two options ($50 or $100). Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
Have a great break from school. Still take care of yourselves. Don't stay up all night. Put good food into your system. Hydrate. Stretch. Workout. And come back ready to dominate on the track & field.
