Impromptu Meet at Park this Wednesday 4/25

The meet at Eagan for tomorrow (Tuesday) has been canceled because their field event and warm-up areas are in really bad shape. Sorry for the late notice, but we desperately added a dual meet at Park High School this week on Wednesday 4/25. Field events start at 4:00, running events at 4:15. Students are released at 2:15. 

The biggest problem with setting up this meet is that we can only get a bus if we schedule one at least two weeks in advance. Our district policy allows kids to drive to intra-district events as long as parents are notified ahead of time. If you have any issues with your athlete riding with other students or parents to this meet, please email me at lswansso@sowashco.org

VISITATION AND MEMORIAL SERVICE FOR COACH TOM MOORE

For those who wish to attend the Visitation and Memorial Service (or "FUNeral" as Coach Tom Moore wanted it to be called), I have posted the information below.

VISITATION

Thursday, April 12th from 5:00 - 7:00PM / Location: Five Oaks Church (4416 Radio Drive, Woodbury, MN 55129)

MEMORIAL SERVICE

The Moore Family has requested memorials in leui of flowers.

NOTE: The school has excused both Boys and Girls Track and Field athletes to attend the Memorial Service on Friday, April 13. Parent permission is still required and students with need to find their own transportation (or have parents drive them). 

Pizza Party

The booster club is hosting a pizza party in the high school cafeteria for the boys and girls team on Friday, April 6 immediately following practice.  We will have pizzas from Pizza Hut, but would like the athletes to bring the following items:

 

Middle School/Freshmen: dessert

Sophomores: fruit

Juniors: vegetables

Seniors: bottles of water (Dasani), Powerade or Vitamin Water

This is going to be a bit of an aerobic workout.

500 meters with a 5 minute walk recovery, then 2 x 300 meters with a 3 minute walk recovery between.

Finish with a long recovery walk and run 3 sprints at 15 meters. (Do some dynamic warm-ups between the 300's and the sprints)
