CoEd Varsity Track
March Track UpdateThis Week's Track Schedule (March 5-10):
Our Dolores Track and Field Season is off to a super start with the biggest team of athletes that we've had in a long time! We are busy getting into shape, practicing proper technique, and doing some fun team activities to get to know each other.
(Some student/athletes still need to turn in their green track paper and some of their office paperwork. I have everything available if needed. Athletes will be reminded.)
We please need 7 parent volunteers to help run stop watches on Monday during our relay time trials at the Cortez track if anyone is available. Please bring a stopwatch if you have one and let Coach Elder know if you plan on helping. If you can possibly stop by Dolores to pick athletes up right after school to take to Cortez, that would help with our bus not getting too full (it fits 15). Having a team too big for our mini-bus is a good problem to have!
Monday-Practice in Cortez right after school. Please bring the pink student permission form to be able to drive yourself or anyone else. Be specific and say who is driving you. Parents, the athletic director, and your head coach needs to sign this as well. The mini-bus can drive up to 15 athletes. We will return to our school following practice. Plan on getting back to DHS at 6:00. Timed trials to determine relays, long and triple jump, hurdles, throwing, and long-distance will all be focused on this day.
Tuesday-Dolores Practice (Sydney to Cortez possibly ay 5:00 to high jump)
Wednesday-Cortez track (we will start warming up in Dolores right after school, then head to Cortez.) We will return to DHS by 6:00. Relay exchanges, jumping, throwing, and long distance are our focal points for this day.
Thursday-Dolores Practice (HJ Syd in Cortez at 5:00)

Peek to Next Week (March 12-15):
Monday-Thursday-Dolores Practice all week! No Practice Friday!
Happy Spring Break! Have fun but please make sure to do your spring break workouts that will be given to you by your specialty coaches while school is out. We don't want to lose all the ground that we've covered the two weeks before.
Hope to see you at the meets!
