Making the HRHS Memorial Great

The HRHS Memorial, now in its fourth year, was designed to provide a tremendous meet for our athletes while also providing an opportunity to give back to our community. The first meet honored HRHS's legendary shot put coach, Ron Hambric, whom we lost the previous season. This year, we are dedicating the meet in the memory of Claire Davis, the Arapahoe student who was tragically taken from us this past winter, and our athletes will be selling pink shoelaces in her honor with the proceeds going to The Second Wind Fund, which provides free mental health care for students in our community. We would like to thank everyone for their support with this meet and for supporting The Second Wind Fund in honor of Claire Davis.

Not only does our meet serve a great cause, but coaches from other teams consistently say it's the most well-run meet they attend each season, and we need all hands on deck (and feet on the track) to keep that reputation alive. Here's a note we got from a coach after last year's meet:
Coach, I wanted to let you know I thought you guys did a great job at the meet on Saturday. I have only been coaching track in CO for 4 years most of my time is from my home state of Louisiana. But I gotta say that was the most efficiently run meet I have been to in my time here. Nice Work, good luck for the rest of the season.
We can only run a meet that great with LOTS of parent participation!
  • Our greatest needs are on wind gauges (this is one of the few positions where you'll be sitting rather than standing) and concessions (this is one of the few positions where shade is a sure thing)including Grill Masters .
  • Volunteers get free meet admission, lunch and our eternal thanks!
  • We will have a black canopy set up near the finish line where HRHS parents and supporters can hang out when they are not busy volunteering. Look for it and spend some time getting to know other parents at the meet!
  • If you can't be at the track on Saturday, you can still help! We need donations of 7 cases of water and 12 dozen cookies/brownies/cupcakes for our Coach/Volunteer Lunch. Please email Trish Kreutz before Thursday if you can donate a case of water or a dozen cookies/brownies/cupcakes.
Join us after the meet for a Parents and Coaches Only Party at On the Rox (on Lincoln SE of I-25).
