This calendar will be used only to reflect changes to our normal practice schedule. Spring Track & Field practice is held every weekday after school and on Saturdays when there is no meet scheduled. Unless otherwise posted on this calendar, weekday practice is 3:10pm - 5:10pm and Saturday practice is 10:00am - 12:00pm. Normal practice times will not be shown on the calendar. No news means no change. If school is closed or dismisses early due to weather, there is no practice. A meet on the calendar always implies no practice unless otherwise announced. Most of the Spring 2014 meet schedule is on the calendar but some of the weekday dual meets are still being scheduled.
Please note the updated practice time on the calendar for Wednesday, March 12...3:00 - 5:00.
Schmelz Named AOY
Senior Zach Schmelz has been named the Indoor Track Athlete of the Year for the State of Delaware. Schmelz was honored Thursday night at the All-State banquet after being selected by the state's coaches. The award comes after a remarkable season highlighted by two Gold medals, a Silver, and a Bronze at the State Championship Meet last month. Schmelz won the 400 meter dash (49.95 seconds) and high jump (6 feet), took 2nd in the 200 meter dash (22.45 seconds) and 3rd in the long jump (21 feet, 1/4 inch). Earlier in the season, Schmelz posted a time of 48.94 seconds in the 400m, which is 2nd All-Time in Delaware and 20th in the nation this season. On March 14 - 16, Schmelz will run the 200m and 400m at the New Balance National Indoor Track Championships at the legendary Armory in New York City.
Distance runners, please note the schedule changes for our two traditional off-campus practices, Ruins of Carthage and Alpine Death March. With some warmer weather in the forecast, I think we need that time to allow the snow-covered trails to clear. Please also note that further rescheduling is not out of the question. Two factors that could cause another change are the unpredictable March weather and the fact that our dual meet schedule is incomplete. Particularly with ADM, I don't want to hammer you and have a meet pop up on the schedule two days later. Working to complete the dual meet schedule as soon as possible. More details about these two practices will be discussed soon.
