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.  A meet on the calendar always implies no practice unless otherwise announced.

4x100 relay team running at Penn Relays.  Catalano/Schmelz/Deturk/TJ Brown.  Alternates:  Normand, Otchere-Addo.  These athletes, and coaches, will meet at the Newark Train Station to catch the 7:40 AM train into Philadelphia.  You are excused from the entire day of school but are responsible for all missed work.  We should arrive at University City at 8:38 AM.  This is right across the street from Franklin Field, the site of the meet.    

Everyone is responsible for their own transportation to and from the train station.  BE ON TIME.  Our train leaves at 7:40 AM, so we will be boarding around 7:30 AM.  Your train tickets are paid for.  Our 4x100 heats are scheduled to start at 10:40 AM.  Races are run alphabetically and our heats begin at 10:40 - our actual race time will be later.  We will catch the 3:24 PM train back to Newark.  Your ride must be at the Newark Train Station no later than 4:30 PM.  

Important notes:
  • All bags will be checked upon entering the stadium.  Any food must be wrapped in clear plastic wrap and water bottles must be commercially sealed and un-opened.  More security info for athletes and spectators.  Travel light!
  • Parents can buy and print meet tickets by clicking here.  This is a much better option than buying them at the gate.  The best way to get to the meet is by train.
  • We will have a few hours after our race to enjoy the meet.  Bring some money and comfortable clothes.  Sunscreen is always a good idea and keeps me young and beautiful.  Your results may vary.
  • The Penn Relays is the greatest track & field meet in the world.  They don't call it a carnival for nothing.  Bask!  
  • Non-competing seniors who want to attend are welcome to come with us but I cannot excuse you from school, pay for your train and meet tickets, or be responsible for you during the day.  Your parents would have to send a note to school.  That said, any serious track athlete should experience Penn Relays at least once.  Nuff said.  

Distance runners will not practice as a team Friday.  They should do an easy run on their own at home.  The rest of the team will practice from 3:30 - 5:30 at St. Mark's.
