ARCHDIOCESAN MEET

Fri May 29 2009 @ 10:32 AM

PLEASE BE SURE TO HAVE YOUR CHILD AT FRANKLIN FIELD 1 HOUR BEFORE THE RACE SCHEDULED TIME. YOU CAN VIEW THE RACE SCHEDULE UNDER THE WEBSITE http://philacyotrack.blogspot.com/

ALSO FOR THE 4X200M RELAY TEAMS THEY HAVE CHANGED THE FORMAT FROM WHAT WE HAVE BEEN USING TO BE THE SAME AS THE 4X100M RELAY IN STAGGERED LANES AND THEY NEED TO STAY IN THEIR LANE. BELOW IS THE INFORMATION ON THE WEBSITE IN REGARDS TO THIS. WE WILL TALK TO THE RUNNERS BEFORE THIS EVENT TO EXPLAIN IT TO THEM.

The 4x200 is a new event this year for the Archdiocesan track & field program and will hopefully be an exciting conclusion to the meet!

At Franklin Field, the 4x200 is run entirely in lanes (a four turn stagger). It begins and ends from the Northwest start finish/line (similar to the 4x100).

There are a number of markings on the track which might confuse your runners. Officials will be at each zone to inform the runners where they must receive the baton and which exchange zone they are receiving in. Each runner is permitted to use the 10 meter fly zone but must receive the baton within the 20 meter exchange zone, same as in the 4x100.

The stadium is open to competitors beginning at 8:15am and the track will be cleared at 9am. Jumpers are not permitted to practice on the long jump runway or the high jump area before the competition has commenced.

ALL 4X800M RELAY TEAMS SHOULD BE AT FRANKLIN FIELD BY 8:45 SO THAT THEY WILL HAVE TIME TO WARM UP ON THE TRACK.

STILL NOT SURE EXACTLY WHERE THE SHOT PUT WILL BE BUT WILL ASK THAT AT THE COACHES MEETING.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL SSJ ATHLETES.

Mon May 04 2009 @ 04:57 PM

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR BOYS TRACK TEAM THAT TOOK SECOND PLACE IN THE REGION 17 MEET YESTERDAY. IT WAS AN EXHAUSTING DAY FOR EVERYONE AND WE APPRECIATE ALL OF YOU WHO WERE ABLE TO HANG IN THERE AND CHEER OUR SSJ ATHLETES. OUR GIRLS TEAM TOOK 4TH PLACE MISSING 3RD BY 3 POINTS.

WE HAVE A GOOD NUMBER OF ATHLETES MOVING ON TO THE AREA E MEET THAT WILL BE HELD ON SUNDAY MAY 17, 2009 AT PLYMOUTH WHITEMARSH HIGH SCHOOL. ANYONE WHO FINISHED IN THE TOP 6 INDIVIDUAL EVENTS AND TOP 4 RELAY TEAMS WILL CONTINUE TO PRACTICE FOR THE NEXT TWO WEEKS. WE'RE WAITING ON CONFIRMATION ABOUT THE WESTTOWN TRACK SO WE'LL SEND ANOTHER EMAIL OUT IN REGARDS TO TRACK PRACTICE FOR THE NEXT TWO WEEKS.

WE WILL NOT BE PRACTICING TOMORROW, TUESDAY 5/5!!! I BELIEVE THE RAIN WILL STILL BE AROUND.

IT'S ASHAME THAT YESTERDAY WAS AS BAD AS IT WAS BUT WE STILL HAVE A LOT OF CHILDREN BEAT THEIR OWN PERSONAL RECORDS. THAT WAS VERY IMPRESSIVE UNDER THE CONDITIONS. WE HAD A LOT OF CHILDREN JUST MISS BY MOVING ON IN FINISHING 7TH PLACE. GOOD JOB TO ALL! THE MINOR AGE GROUPS HAS TO BE THE TOUGHEST AGE GROUP BECAUSE YOU HAVE SOME 5TH GRADERS, ALL 6TH GRADERS AND SOME 7TH GRADERS. WE HOPE THAT OUR FIRST YEAR MINORS REALIZE THAT NEXT YEAR WILL BE THERE TURN TO BE THE OLDER ONE.

ALSO A REMINDER THAT WE'LL BE SENDING AN EMAIL OUT ABOUT OUR COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECT SCHEDULED FOR WEDNESDAY 5/13 UP AT SSJ. FURTHER DETAILS WILL FOLLOW!

THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND HELP. THERE WERE A LOT OF SCHOOLS WHO HAD SOME NO SHOWS AND REALLY MESSED UP THEIR RELAY TEAMS.

THANKS TO MR. MCCARRON FOR TRANSPORTING OUR TENT. WE DEFINITELY NEEDED THAT BIGGER TENT THIS YEAR. WE WOULD HAVE NEVER FIT UNDER THE SMALL TENT.

WE'LL BE BACK IN TOUCH SOON.

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL SSJ TRACK TEAM!!

PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE TIMES AS TO WHEN YOUR CHILD IS RUNNING/JUMPING. ON THE SSJ HOME PAGE OF WAGDOGS YOU CAN OPEN UP THE ROSTER FOR THIS WEEKEND.

ONE OF THE TRACK COACHES FROM ST. AGNES PARISH LOST HIS SON THIS PAST WEEK. THE REGION DECIDED TO COLLECT A $1.00 ADMISSION ON SUNDAY TO SEND IN MEMORY OF CHRISTOPHER RICHARD (SON OF DAVID RICHARD, ST. AGNES TRACK COACH) TO ARC FIRST STEP PROGRAM. PLEASE KEEP THE RICHARD FAMILY IN YOUR PRAYERS.
