March 20th, 21st, & 22nd
Boys’ track tryouts will take place after school on Monday, March 20, Tuesday, March 21, and Wednesday, March 22. Students are expected to attend all three days. Students should wear athletic clothing and shoes.
Students should try out for as many events as they feel comfortable trying out for which will increase their chances of making the team. Students’ participating in the 55, 100, 200, 400, 800 meter and mile events will be timed. Students’ distances in the shot put, long jump, and high jump will be measured. Students with the fastest times and highest distances generally will make the team. The team will be made up of the athletes that meet our needs. (We do not need as many sprinters as long-distance runners. Some students may not make the team since athletes can participate in more than one event.)
Car riders’ parents or guardians need to pick their children up by 4:45 pm. Bus riders will take an activity bus home. Please check the activity bus schedule for the drop off location and time.
In the event we have cool weather, students are encouraged to bring warm clothes. Also, please do not buy any specialty equipment (shoes, cleats, gloves, etc.) until the team is selected.
