Meet Results + Flower Pickup + Please Volunteer (new slots open!)

We still have two more meets this week -- the Frosh/Soph Championships today and the HRHS Memorial on Saturday (more on that below -- we still need help!), but we've already posted some great results this week! At Valor's Colorado Meet of Champions, HRHS Track came home with lots of hardware from both individual events and relays!

Special congratulations on these Monday performances:
  • Eric Krauss' PR triple jump of 44' 9.5" put him in 3rd on the state leaderboard for 5A and 6th for all classifications! 
  • Morgan Krusoe's time of 46.30 in the 300 Hurdles met the National Elite Silver standard.
  • Leilah Vigil's shot put of 38-10 also met the National Elite Silver standard.
  • Our Boys 4x800 relay moved into 5th in the 5A rankings. 
  • Our Girls 4x400 relay moved into 13th in the 5A rankings.
  • Our Girls 4x800 relay moved into 15th in the 5A rankings.
Click for Boys and Girls official state rankings. These are changing with every meet. Remember that the top 18 in each classification after next week's Conference meet qualify for the State Meet May 19-21.

Our team is young this year, and we're excited to see how our freshmen and sophomores stack up at today's Frosh/Soph meet. Click here for today's schedule and watch for details on their performances later this week.

  • Earlier Flower Pickup -- Thursday May 5 from 1-6 pm. Please remind the people who bought flowers from you to pick them up. We have no way to store plants that are not picked up on Thursday.
  • Team Dinner @ Krusoe Family (9055 S. Forrest Drive) on Friday May 6 @ 6:30 pm
  • HRHS Memorial Meet: We still need a number of parent volunteers, especially in the horizontal jumps and throws. There are also additional slots open for concessions. The food truck we originally had scheduled canceled so we need more help in that area than originally planned. Please (pretty please??) click here to sign up and help! Also, keep in mind that JV athletes are required to be at the meet helping; they will have specific assignments and will receive community service hours for their work.
Also mark your calendar for:

  • Track Banquet. This is for all athletes (JV and Varsity) who finished the season with us on Tuesday, May 24 @ 5pm. More details to come.
