Performance Standards

                  Updated performance goals for WGHS track and field athletes                                                      (5/28/2014)

These charts will be used to formulate relay teams for district and beyond. We will not consider people for relay spots until they run the prescribed time in an open event during the season. When you have achieved the qualifying time, you will then be allowed to "tryout for the prescribed relay." Your qualifying time may be run at a meet or practice.Athletes will evaluated through performance. On Monday following the league meet, we will run qualifying races and the same on Monday following the district and  regional meet. Our relays may change from district to regional and from regional to state. We only qualify a team not the individual members of that team. (For example, if we have an athlete who is in an individual event at the district or regional level and he/she does not qualify to the next level in that event, they may then be put on a relay or given the opportunity to "tryout" for the relay if they have achieved the qualifying standard.) We are rewarding hard work and performance while promoting competition and giving our team the best chance to move on.  If there are no members who have achieved qualifying times that are not on the relay already, there will be no need for a qualifying race. If not enough individuals achieve qualifying times, we will open up spots to general team members based on the next best times.  Please be realistic about what our capabilities. Please look at the chart below and understand that if the relay has no members who have run excellent or state qualifier times, we probably will not expect to be making a trip to the state meet unless we improve individually. Your contribution is what makes the group not the other way around.
