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.
The Chargers’ track athletes have been working hard and seeing improvement through the early part of the season. Now, we are ready to embark upon a four-week stretch where we are scheduled to have two meets a week. Hopefully, we will be blessed with great weather for all of these meets. If we have cold and/or wet weather, make sure that everyone has enough layers to stay warm!
There are some of these meets that have restricted participation, so that we will not be able to have everyone participate. I will try to have the line-up up for the athletes the day before the meet. If someone is not participating, they do not have to come along. This will primarily affect some of our younger gentlemen.
This week, we will be traveling to Maple River (Mapleton) on Tuesday for a 9-team meet. Then, on Friday, we head to Sibley East (Arlington) for the Vrklan Relays. This non-scoring meet provides a nice change of pace for the athletes as there are more relays, and some that are quite unusual. The coaches even get involved with a “special” event at the end of the meet.
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.)
