As we all have heard school is being shut down starting Monday, March 16th and continuing through at least April 5th. Because of the seriousness of these precautions the coaching staff feels it is best to also cancel practice today, March 13th.
These are very difficult circumstances to navigate and I know our athletes are very disappointed with this turn of events. To be honest with everyone we do not know how this affects our season. We will make sure to update you weekly and let you know when we have new information. Additionally, we will be sending home weekly workouts (that can be performed without a track) so that athletes can stay in shape for (hopefully) an abbreviated but fun and productive track season in April and May.
This Saturday’s Lapathon has been postponed; the makeup date will be announced later this month.
I know our coaching staff, boosters, and athletes will be committed to having the best possible season when we are able to do compete. As we have always said we control what we can control, and right now this is out of our control. Please enjoy time with your families and stay healthy over the next three weeks; athletes, continue to work at your schoolwork! We will relay more information when it is available.
