HS Pine Richland Invite - Friday, April 28th, 2019
This Friday, April 28th, 2019 is the last HS meet of the season before the individual Championship round begins. A list of athletes invited to Pine Richland were emailed to all today. I know there is a lot going on this time of year so if an athlete cannot attend, that's okay. This meet is really for those close to qualifying to get one more shot at improving their mark. Relay members should make all efforts to attend for one last push towards Championships. If an athlete has not hit a qualifying mark on Friday, there season has ended and they can drop off their clean, marked in a ziplock bag uniform to me the following Monday. More information about the meet will be sent out soon.

HS - We are going to the playoffs!
Congratulations to HS Men's track and field team for going 6-0 this season and 3-peating as Section Champions! The final score today was Central Catholics 61 Franklin Regional 89. Everyone doubted that the team could rebound from last year's losses and here they are. A congratulations goes out to the HS Women's team as well for a hard fought meet. It took Oakland all 18 events to beat us with a score of 78-72. Final record for the Women is 5-1. Both teams will compete in the playoffs, location not officially determined yet. I'm very proud of them all.
Also a big thank you to everyone who helped out today with senior recognition. Well done.
HS - Another Victory!
Gateway put up the toughest fight so far but both the FR Men and Women were able to come out with victories and improve their record to 5-0. Both teams scored over 120 points against Woodland Hills. The Women won 89-60, the Men won 88-62 against Gateway. A very special congratulations goes out to Aly Kindleberger who broke the school record in the high jump with a leap of 5 feet 4 inches. Today’s wins qualified both teams for the playoffs. The Championship meet is next Tuesday. Great job everyone!!
