The MVL/NUC track team is open to and welcomes students in grades 9(7)-12. As we work with the athletes, we encourage them to use their gifts to the best of their abilities and to the glory of the Lord. We expect them to display good sportsmanship and to encourage one another both in practice and in meets. We are encouraged as we see the athletes working together to develop athletic skills, and as we see them grow in friendship.
Once the regular season is completed, we participate in the MSHSL individual events post-season competition where the Lord continues to bless us with many athletes qualifying for the section meet. In fact, for the last 10 years, we also have had numerous individuals who have qualified for the state meet. We are thankful that all of the athletes are using their talents to the best of their ability and to the glory of God.
After a good hard-working week of practice, the Chargers track teams headed to MSU on Saturday morning for our first meet of the season. While we aren’t used to having morning meets, the students competed very well once they got going. In fact, the girls’ team finished in first place out of the six teams competing! Congratulations, ladies! The guys finished in fourth place which was a very good showing for our young team.
This week, we will be heading back to MSU on Tuesday to take on a different group of teams. The bus will leave MVL at 5:45, and the meet begins at 7:00. If you are bringing your athlete(s) to the meet, please let Mr. Timm know. Thank you. Then, on Thursday, we will be switching up our practice by having a workout and fun at the Vogel pool in New Ulm. Please return the permission form by Wednesday if you have not done so yet.
Check back here for the latest information and updates. Click the link under “Schedules” to be taken to the Tomahawk Conference site where you can find the scrimmage and meet schedule (You can create an account on the conference site so you can be notified if we have a weather-related change to the meet schedule). I will try to update this area with the practice schedule and other important announcements. Check here often!
In case of cancellation of practice due to weather or lack of available practice space, I will notify the AD’s as soon as a decision is made. They will see to it that an announcement is made. In case of snow days, if MVL does not have school, there is no track practice or meet.
Here is the schedule for the week. If we are practicing at a different location (HS or JH track, Vogel, etc.), I will post that here so that everyone knows where to go. (When the weather is cooperative, the pole vaulters may be practicing at MLC.)
