Senior Recognition, Thursday, 2:15: As is our tradition in Mustang Track, we will take a moment before the meet begins to recognize our Seniors as they compete at Waller Stadium for the last time. All Seniors should come up to the Record Wall area at 2:10. There’ll be flowers and a photo op. Then they’ll head down to the track and kick some bootay! We’ll be making announcements about them throughout the meet, so if you’re a senior (or a parent of one), be sure to reply to the request for info below!
Stuff we need from Seniors: Thanks to those who have begun sending in their info. We will need to know: (Email to email@example.com)
*How many years you’ve competed in Track
*What your plans are for next year
A copy (digital or printed) of your high school photo
Please reply to this email with the answers to the questions asap.
*need this info by tomorrow; need photo by May 9
Volunteers Needed: I am happy to report that we have filled all requests for snack stand donations. Now we just need to fill 15 more volunteer spots for Thursday and we’ll be good. Especially if you are the parent of an underclassman, it would be VERY kind of you to volunteer so that our parents of seniors can sit and savor as they watch their athlete compete at Mira Costa for the last time <insert quivering lip, watering eyes here>. Here’s the link to the Volunteer Spot signup — Let’s finish strong Mustang Parents! You’ve been fantastic!
Results from the Weekend:
Mt. Sac: Our girls had a tough 4×100 relay experience with some congestion on the track resulting in a dropped baton. Always a tough break. However, the bright spot of the day was freshman Shante Robinson finishing first in the seeded 300 hurdles with a 43.70 — another new record for Costa.
South Bay Championships: More than half our team spent the bulk of the weekend at West High School, scoring well enough for the Boys Varsity to win the Team Title and the Girls Varsity to finish third. Complete results are HERE
A few photo galleries from SB Championships:
Thank you Johnny Rockets! Many thanks to Chris Khaleghian and his team at Johnny Rockets Manhattan Beach for hosting our post-meet Coaches Dinner last Tuesday night after the Pen matchup. We really appreciate the support from our community!
Coming up this weekend: Frosh/Soph only — Tartar Relays Saturday at Zamperini Field. More info to come.
Looking Ahead to Next year: Have you enjoyed your track experience? Would you like to get more involved now that you know how fantastic this program is? We are currently filling out our board and committee chairs for next year. If you’d like to be considered for a small, medium or large role on the Board for the 2014-15 season, please reply to Cindy McMahon and let us know your level of interest and area of expertise. I’ll buy you coffee and talk you into it! firstname.lastname@example.org
