1. Get cleared for participation! Don't wait! Athletic Clearance is done on-line. THIS MUST BE DONE PRIOR TO ANY TRACK AND FIELD PARTICIPATION, BEFORE OR DURING THE SEASON. Please get this done now. Sometimes it takes a few weeks to schedule those physical exams. The DHS Athletics Website has information on this process and links to the necessary documentation. Click Here!
2. We will have an informational meeting in January, where the coaches will lay out the requirements and expections for trying out for and participating on this year's team. When we have a specific location/time, we will post it here.
3. Have an off-season workout plan. To those not participating in a winter sport: Preparation should begin now. Wating until February to begin training will result in poor performance, a higher likelihood of injury, and a generally unpleasant experience. The Davis Community Track and Field Club is offering a Winter Track program designed specifically to prepare athletes for the upcoming season. Click here to register. Email Coach Elliott at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
We will once again run our Winter Track through the Davis Community Track and Field Club.
This is a great way to prepare for the upcoming season in all event groups (including those who have not yet discovered their event group).
Email email@example.com if you have any questions about Winter Track - Scholarships are available!
As we move into the 2019 season, we will identify a few additional captains. For now, here are your captains:
Jupa Zarate-Sanchez, Bryce Gregg, Isaac Siebert, Hannah Lybbert, Will Ewens, Kyle Henricson, Jade Lundy, Maren Klineberg, Sophie Lodigiani, Hugh Roberts

Way to go, Blue Devils! We qualified 10 athletes to the State Meet.
Tazio: 2nd in the shot and 2nd in the discus. His discus mark of 170'7" is a new school record!
Abby: 1st place in the triple jump!
Sondre: 1st place in the pole vault and 1st place in the 110 hurdles. Sondre ran a blazing fast 14.15 in the 110 hurdles. This is a huge school record and makes him one of the favorites in the State Meet.
Simen: 2nd place in the pole vault!
Hannah: 4th in the high jump, but she cleared 5'4", which is the at-large qualifier. Incidentally, her clearance at 5'4" would have cleared 5'5" or 5'6".
Shay: 3rd in the high jump. Her mark of 5'6" ties her for the school record with her teammate Tiya.
Tiya: 1st in the high jump. She jumped 5'6" again, equaling her record mark.
Brooke: 2nd in the 100m and 2nd in the 200m!
Jupa: 1st place in the 800m!
Olivia: 1st place in the 1600m. Her mark of 4:42.71 is a new DHS school record. Additionally, this mark is number one in the US for high school students. Wow!
Congratulations to all competitors - School records fell, athletes qualified for masters, and the girls came away with a team victory. All in all, it was a fabulous evening at Elk Grove.
New School Records:
Elena pole vaulted 11'9" - Her first year as a vaulter!
Brooke took down both the 100m and 200m records - 12.03 and 24.71!
Sondre's 14.38 110h was a non-wind-aided record.

Thank you to the athletes, coaches, and volunteers who contributed to the success of this year's Halden Invitational. It takes a lot of work to put on a quality meet of this size.

Great Job everybody!
Please take a look at your results on athletic.net, and email me with any errors.
The Halden Invitational is approaching. As many of you already know, this meet is a big deal for our program. First, it's a critical fundraiser: We collect admission, we charge teams to participate, and make money at concessions and outside food vendors. Fleet Feet Davis, which helps to sponsor the meet, sells t-shirts and contributes the revenue to the track and field program.
The meet is more than just a fundraising opportunity though. We take great pride in putting on a first class meet that allows maximum participation from the schools that attend. So far, we have almost 30 high schools and over 20 youth clubs.
A meet like this requires large support from our parent community. Please take a look at the sign up genius and volunteer for a shift or two. You'll see that I broke shifts into reasonable segments. I'm hoping to get these positions filled as soon as possible.
Note: I'm hoping to staff the track finishline, field events, and clerking tent first. If you feel comfortable with these jobs, please volunteer. No experience necessary. We'll help you.
Congrats to Hannah, Sondre, and Simen who represented DHS at the Arcadia Invitational over the weekend.
Sondre pr'd in the vault, hitting 18'2.5". This mark is the highest vault in California history - CA State Record!
Simen finished 8th in the competition with a vault of 15'1". Simen has had to take some time off from the vault, so this was a nice way come back from injury.
Hannah cleared 5'3" to take 3rd in the morning high jump session. She nearly missed 5'5"!
