Welcome to HRHS Track 2014!

Our team has seen a lot of growth this year, and we just got our email lists updated so many of you are seeing communications from HRHS Track for the first time. Whether you've been with us for a while or you're just getting to know us, we're glad you're here!

Please mark your calendar and plan to attend our Required Parent Meeting on Monday, March 3 @ 6:45 pm in the HRHS library. You'll learn what coaches expect from athletes, what you can expect from our program, and how you can be part of making 2014 a great season for our athletes. See you there!

If you're new to HRHS Track, our website and emails are your best sources of information. Expect to get 2 or 3 emails a week during the season with updates on team dinners, meet schedules, locations, results and photos and other important news. (Really....if you haven't been to our website, go see our calendar or meet our coaches or check our team records.)

The Science of Running Faster

What are we working on at Track Camp? What fundamentals do we practice every day during the track season? The techniques that make running faster and more efficient.

Our kids hear a lot about what their arms are doing, what their knees are doing and where their heels are. "Drive down" is a phrase they hear every day.

It's not as quick and easy as this video makes it look, but here's how, with time and repetition, all that attention to detail makes a difference...for performance in track and any other sport that involves running. (If the video doesn't appear below, click here.)

The registration deadline for spring sports at HRHS is only a few days away on Monday, February 24. Athletes must have registrations and athletic physicals on file by this date to participate in practice. If you haven't already registered and turned in your physical, don't delay!

Congratulations to HRHS seniors, Macy Kreutz and Connor Turnage, who will be signing National Letters of Intent on Wednesday, February 5th to compete in NCAA Division I Track and Field programs next year. Join us to celebrate their signings on Wednesday at 3pm in the HRHS Commons.

Macy Kreutz

A 4-time medalist at the State Meet, Macy has been a part of the HRHS Track team since her freshman year. She competed in her first State Meet as a freshman, where her 4x800 meter relay team placed 2nd. As a sophomore, she placed 8th in the 800 meter run and 8th in the 4x800 meter relay. As a junior, she placed 5th in the 800 meter run. She has also competed at State in the 400 meter dash, 4x400 meter relay, and the sprint medley relay. She is a 2nd-year defending Continental League champion in the 800 meter run. Macy's senior season for HRHS starts this month, and she will be signing her National Letter of Intent with Colorado State University. Congratulations, Macy!

Connor Turnage

Connor has been part of the HRHS Track team since his freshman year and has earned 4 state medals. As a freshman, he qualified for the state meet in triple jump, and as a sophomore he took his first state championship in that event. As a junior, he repeated as the 5A State Champion in the triple jump, placed 2nd at State the long jump, and ran a leg on the 4x100 meter relay team that won a 7th place medal at the State Meet. He was named Colorado's Gatorade Athlete of the Year for Track and Field in 2013. Connor's senior season for HRHS starts this month, and he will be signing his National Letter of Intent with University of Nebraska. An interview with Colorado Track XC related to his college commitment is posted here.  Congratulations, Connor!

We also congratulate CC Morgan, who has already signed her NLI to play Division I Basketball with Denver University. CC began competing with HRHS Track as a freshman. As a junior, she medaled at State with an 8th place finish in long jump and ran a leg on the state-qualifying 4x100 meter relay.
