Texas Results and Photos
For the past several years, HRHS Track has taken a group of varsity athletes to a national-level meet over Spring Break. It's a great chance for our athletes to see and participate in high-level competition....and it's always warmer than home!
This year, our team qualified two individual athletes and six relay teams for the 2014 Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays, one of the most prestigious outdoor track and field competitions in the United States. Trevor Rex competed in Boys High Jump and placed 7th. Connor Turnage competed in Boys Long Jump and Boys Triple Jump, placing 4th in the triple jump. HRHS's qualifying relays included: Boys and Girls 4x100, Boys and Girls 4x200, Girls 1600 meter medley (placed 12th), and Girls 4x400. Congratulations to our athletes who competed in the Texas Relays! Click here for Texas Relays results.
On the same weekend, some of our athletes also competed in a Texas high school meet, the South Austin Relays. Several athletes set new PR's, some by HUGE margins, and it was a great opportunity for all our athletes to see good competition in great weather. Click here for South Austin Relays results.
In a weekend packed with two track meets, there was still time for fun. Our team went swimming in the cool waters of Barton Springs and enjoyed an evening of bowling, laser tag, rock climbing, billiards, and video games at Main Event the afternoon and evening before returning home.
Our camera could only be in one place at one time so our photos are from the Texas Relays. Click here to see them. Athletes are also invited to add their photos to our online album, and some already have. If you have photos you'd like to share from our 2014 Spring Break trip to Texas, email us.
If you think you might be interested in coming on a Spring Break trip in the future, now is a great time to start fundraising. This year's trip cost was $550, and several of our athletes funded all or most of their trip costs through King Soopers cards. Click here to learn more about how the cards work, and email HRHS Track if you would like to get started on fundraising for future trips.
