What a great regional meet for our teams, with many PR’s and season’s best performances. In addition, the boys were able to win a very good regional, and the girls finished 6th. Because of the boys victory, and a high ranking in the MITCA power rankings (3rd), the boys have been invited to the MITCA team state final in Zeeland on Friday. Please note this event is FRIDAY this year for our division. Here are the details for this meet:
– Boys in meet dismissed from school at 11:00
– Bus to Zeeland High leaves at 11:15
– Boys pole vault begins at 1:00
– All other field events begin at 1:30
– 4×800 relay begins at 3:00
– Parade of teams at 3:30
– Running finals begin at 4:00 ( NO PRELIMS )
We are able to enter 3 boys in each event, so if your son is in the top 3 in any event, he should be prepared to compete Friday and will practice all week. Our state final line up will be out on Tuesday for the kids to see.
On Monday, May 20, we have a mandatory practice for all team members at 3:15. For all those not competing either Friday or next Saturday, they MUST return their clean uniform. We will check them in and they are free to leave if they wish. If they can’t be there, they must get their uniform to a friend to turn in. Please make sure this is done as school has a policy of not allowing kids to take final exams if they have not turned their uniform in.
Finally, we have still not nailed down a banquet date and spot. The AC gym is being refinished the week after our final and it is causing space issues for a group our size. Please look for an email soon with details.
Thanks for your prayerful support all year, Doug
