SJS Masters Meet

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!

Halden Invitational - Volunteers Needed - Click Here to Sign Up!

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.
