Results and Photos: April 24-25


It was a busy week of track last week! Click here for photos from the JV Championship HRHS hosted on Thursday.

Friday and Saturday our Varsity competed at the Liberty Bell Invitational in Littleton. Despite a lightening delay at the start of the meet Friday night and a microburst on Saturday afternoon that took out all the tents in the stadium (along with a thankfully uninjured 4x100 meter relay runner -- see Denver post photo here), it was a good meet for us!

There are many more slots to be filled.
Please sign up on the link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c084daaa923a20-hrhs4

The HRHS Memorial, now in its fifth year, was designed to provide a tremendous meet for our athletes while also providing an opportunity to give back to our community. This year, we are honoring Joe Chandler, a teacher at Highlands Ranch High School that passed away over the fall. He was recognized for having the best ACE (Alternative Cooperative Education) program in the state.

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.

We need all hands on deck (and feet on the track) to keep that reputation alive.

This meet can only run with LOTS of parent participation!

Team Dinners ... and Honoring Joe Chandler

With three meets over four days this week, there's no good time to squeeze in a Team Dinner, but we have two more coming up on April 17 and May 1.

So far this season turnouts for Team Dinners have been great! The number of shoes in the entry is only one measure of that -- we've also gone through almost 20 pounds of pasta! No one has left hungry! Thank you to all of the parents who have hosted, supplied food, drinks, salad and cookies.

There are two more dinners left. Please see the links below to help serve or supply food:

The Butcher Family Dinner Friday, April 17th http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c084daaa923a20-butcher

HRHS Memorial Track Meet

Thank you to everyone who responded to our email and signed up for the Highlands Ranch Memorial Meet.

There are many more slots to be filled.
http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c084daaa923a20-hrhs4

The HRHS Memorial, now in its fifth 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 honoring Joe Chandler, a teacher at Highlands Ranch High School that passed way over the fall. He was recognized for having the best ACE (Alternative Cooperative Education) program in the state.

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.

We can only run a meet that great with LOTS of parent participation!
  • Volunteers get free meet admission, lunch and our eternal thanks!
    Join us after the meet for a Parents and Coaches Only Party at On the Rox (on Lincoln SE of I-25).

Meet Results and Photos from Mustang Invite

Last week our JV competed in less-than-ideal conditions, and this week we will host the JV meet at HRHS on Thursday.

Varsity competed at the Mustang Invite on a beautiful Saturday. Our team did well with both boys and girls scoring in the top 10 at a meet with 30 teams. Go Falcons!

Click here for complete results from the Mustang Invite.

Click here for photos.

We love providing photos for athletes and their fans. However, our photographer will be out of town this week. If you can provide photo coverage of any of the three meets we have over four days this week, please email Kim Turnage, who can help you get your photos uploaded to our online album so we can share them with the entire team.

From the Track Boosters……..


Hi Everyone,

We are four weeks away from our Highlands Ranch Memorial Track Meet on Saturday, May 2nd.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!!!!!!!!
 
The HRHS Memorial Meet has developed a reputation as one of the finest meets in the Denver Metro, largely due to the efforts of our parent volunteers.

WE NEED YOU to make this year's meet great! No experience needed. All you need is a smile and a willingness to create a great experience for our kids!  We have something for everyone.

  • Event volunteers and flag workers are on the track making events happen -- this is the only time all year you'll be able to get this close to the action.
  • Concessions volunteers have guaranteed temperature control and shade.
  • Hospitality and Awards volunteers are right down on the track with a great view plus shade if they want it.
  • PLUS all volunteers get a great lunch and are invited for the after party.
Questions? Contact Gigi Rex.

NEW THIS YEAR: EVENT SPONSORSHIPS
This year, we are offering Event Sponsorships. These are an opportunity for local businesses to get some great exposure while making a big difference for the community! Event Sponsors have their name connected to an event (e.g. 100 Meters, Shot Put, 4x800 Relay, etc.), have their name announced multiple times over the loudspeaker at the meet, and their logo goes on t-shirts that are awarded to event winners from the multiple teams that will participate in our meet. Their names and links to their websites will also be featured on our website. Click here for all the details. 
Questions?  Contact Susie Helmer.
