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.
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 de 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.
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.) Here is the schedule for the upcoming week(s).
With limited entries and limited room on the bus, we will not be able to take all of the athletes to all of the meets that are not in New Ulm or Sleepy Eye. I will try to have the line-ups posted the day prior to the meet so that the athletes will know whether or not they are going. If they are not participating in a meet, they will have that day off. I will try to rotate this as much as possible throughout the year, but there are some meets that are geared to the more advanced athlete so this will be difficult at times. In order to make sure that we have the best and most efficient rotation of athletes, please look at your schedules and let me know if there are times when an athlete will be missing or would prefer to be left off the line-up. Thank you.
New News: What an experience we were able to have last Friday! While I have been in many meets that were colder and more miserable than Friday – it really wasn’t too cold – I have never enjoyed the “setting” that we were able to compete in with over a foot of snow surrounding the track. While some appeared to let the weather affect them; overall, the athletes controlled what they could and had some great performances for the first time out! Oh, the memories they will have and the stories they will be able to share about the Fairmont “Snow Bowl” track meet. If anyone has some pictures that they could share with me, I would greatly appreciate it.
With the weather as it has been and the postponement/cancellation of Tuesday’s meet, LCWM scrambled to throw together a meet for Monday, and we jumped at the opportunity to participate. We will be leaving for the meet as soon as we can after school as the meet starts at 4:30. It should be another fairly quick meet as there are four teams participating. As of now, the only event they are not planning on having is the discus – it should be a beautiful day to compete! If anyone would like to help, please let me know as we are asked to run the long jump.
