Sections on Saturday
We had a beautiful evening in Belle Plaine on Thursday as our athletes competed in the subsection 7 meet. With the top four individuals and top 2 relay teams qualifying for the section meet this coming Saturday, the competition was tough. And, our athletes stepped up to the higher level of intensity and did a great job. We had athletes qualify for the section meet in 17 individual events, and two relay teams also qualified. On top of that, several others medaled, and a great number of athletes PR’d to wrap up their successful season. With the great number of young athletes competing on the team this year, we look forward to a bright future. We also thank our seniors who set the examples and provided the leadership for our youngsters.
This week, we will have practice with coaches on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, with Friday being a day for the athletes to do their individual pre-meet practice. On Tuesday, we will practice at MVL at 3:30 PM. The rest of the week’s schedule will be set at this practice as coaches’ and athletes’ schedule and available facilities will determine the time and location of the rest of the practices.
The Section 2A meet is Saturday at Mankato West with field events beginning at 9:30 AM, sprint prelims at 10:00 and finals beginning at 11:00.
Also, as we wrap up the season, please turn in your uniforms as soon as you are finished. We will have bags at the meets for the uniforms, so that we can get them returned in a timely manner. Thank you.
