2015 Spring Break Meet in Arizona!

This year, HRHS Track's varsity athletes will have the opportunity to travel and compete at the 75th Annual Chandler Rotary Invitational on March 20-21 (first weekend of Spring Break). This meet is held in Chandler, Arizona, which is part of metro Phoenix.

Some of the best high school athletes in the nation come to Chandler Rotary each year, and the meet is unique because competition happens at three levels -- an Elite Division and a Seeded Division (both with minimum qualifying marks) and an Open Division where all other athletes and relay teams can compete. This means that all of our athletes who go on the trip are guaranteed an opportunity to compete in their events at the level that is right for them!

We're still finalizing details on travel but anticipate leaving on Thursday, March 19 and returning on Sunday, March 22 with athletes competing on March 20-21. Anticipated cost to participate is $550. 

UPDATE 12/14:  Airfare has now been purchased and cost is $575 per athlete.

If you're interested in going, let Coach Padjen know now. And start your fundraising now too! King Soopers cards are the easiest way to raise funds for your trip. Click here to see how they work. To get a card for your family (or 2 or 3 or more to share with family and friends who want to help you with fundraising) click here to email Jill Krusoe.

If you plan to compete at the Chandler Rotary and you are not participating in a Winter sport at HRHS, you should be working out with us in our Fall and Winter Training. Click here for details.

Fall and Winter Training Dates

As Fall sports wind down here at The Ranch, here's a reminder of our Fall and Winter Training Dates:

November 3 - December 12 on Mondays thru Thursdays @ 3:10 - 4:15 pm (location TBA watch for announcements at school)

After Winter Break, we will resume on January 7 on Mondays thru Thursdays @ 3:10 - 4:30 pm (meet at the Commons)

Fall and Winter training have made a huge difference to the success of our team in past years. If you are not participating in a Winter sport and you plan to run track in the Spring, you should be training with us! Last year we had 21 athletes qualify for the State meet, and 18 of them won medals. The work we put in during Fall and Winter pays off in those kinds of results in the Spring. BE THERE!!

Distance Meeting November 5

Calling all distance runners! If you are interested in running distance for HRHS Track this season (800, 1600, 3200), come to a meeting with Coach Padjen on Wednesday, November 5 at 3 pm in Post-Grad.
