2017 Track & Field - Firing Up the Blog!

Hello Track and Field Athlete and Parents!

We are going to get the ol' blog up and running this season, as an easy way to distribute information and make announcements.  Booster Club representatives and the Head Coaches will be manning the pages and posting periodically throughout the season.

For now, here are links to:

1) Expectations Packet & Contract.  Read, print the final page, and return to Coach Whitmore or Coach Stubbs.
2) Contact Info and Event Preference Sheet.  If you haven't already, fill this out and return to Coach Whitmore or Coach Stubbs.

More soon!
