Spring Break in Texas and Fundraising Opportunities

*Read all the way to the bottom for a new individual fundraising opportunity that you'll need to act on right away if you're interested!

Once again this year, the HRHS Varsity Track team will compete in Austin, Texas during the last weekend of Spring Break (March 28-29). Specifics for travel will be determined at a later date, but we will likely fly out on March 27 and return on March 30.

All Varsity athletes who go on the trip will be able to compete in the South Austin Relays on March 28. The South Austin Relays is a high school meet, and it is a great chance for our athletes to see strong competition in what is typically much warmer weather than we have here at home.

The Texas Relays are on the same weekend at the University of Texas at Austin. This is a national meet for elite high school and college athletes. Athletes must meet qualifying marks to participate in the Texas Relays, and those who do are invited by Texas Relays officials to compete in the meet. Some of our athletes may qualify, but it is unlikely that all will. Those who don't compete will have the opportunity to watch some of the best track and field competitors in the country!

Cost will be $500 per athlete, which includes airfare, ground transportation in Austin, lodging, and most meals.

TWO WAYS TO RAISE FUNDS FOR YOUR TRIP:

  • Sell Falcon Cards: HRHS Football Boosters have 130 Falcon Cards left from their Fall fundraiser. Cards sell for $25. For every card sold, you will have $12.50 credited to your individual trip costs (the remaining $12.50 stays with the football program). There is no upfront cost or obligation. Check out Falcon Cards, sell as many as you can, and return the money and any unsold cards. Email us at hrhstrack@gmail.com for more information or to get cards. (This has been offered as a fundraiser just today to all HRHS clubs. If you want to get in on this, ACT FAST!! Cards may not be available if you wait too long!)
