Fastback Shootout

Alright, racing season is FINALLY here... our first meet will be on Saturday at Mt. Sac for the Fastback Shootout. The list on the right side of the screen has a link that will take you to the website for racing heat schedules.

ALL ATHLETES! You need to be at the school by 5:05 am. You MUST be wearing your uniform, team t-shirt and team sweats to get onto the bus. If you are late, you will still be required to attend the meet, and you will not race, you will also not race next weekend at Woodbridge. Needless to say, BE ON TIME!!

The first race (junior girls) is at 7:30am, please eat and hydrate accordingly. Get a good night sleep, and be ready to race! Those of you that are not racing are still required to attend and help out. You will help with all equipment (tents, first aid kit) and possibly recording splits. Bring a healthy sack lunch. From years past, that I recall, there has not been a snack bar and they are usually filled with junk any way. I just found out that Robek's will have a booth there, bring money if you like, but also remember to bring a sandwich, water, fruit, and healthy crackers. If you race early, have it for when you are done. If you race late, bring small items (banana and peanut butter, other fruit, string cheese etc.) Don't stuff yourself right before your race (TEDDY!)

Once everyone has cooled down and is ready to leave, we will possibly get lunch in our usual shopping center near the Rubios. It is not required, but you may bring money to get food if you like. We should return to the school by around 2:30 or 3 pm.

Our first team dinner will be this Friday at the Calhoun's residence. You will receive directions on Friday during class if you have never been there. Time TBA, it is really fun, plus you get free food!! If you have any questions please call or email.
