With our first meet under our belts, athletes and coaches are excited about the potential for great things this year but we could use some more help still! Any athlete not participating in baseball or softball looking to get stronger, quicker, faster or just looking for some fun can still give track and field a shot this year. Bluejay Coaches, we would appreciate one last push of encouragement to make your teams more well-rounded athletes, we are not just a running club… we run faster, throw farther and jump longer and higher so there is something for anyone! We could use another athlete on some relays; we’d love to get to the State Meet this year! Reach out to the office, coaches or athletes for more information. You could be the school record holder!
