Hello Team! We are already in week 4 of our 12 week season! This email contains a lot of information and a lot of links! Please read thoroughly and click on all of the links so you are not missing any important information!!
This past week, our JV squad went to Centaurus and lit up the track. Results of the JV meet. Please note that this was not an official CHSAA timed meet, so if something looks way off, it very well might be, but finding a correction on that will simply not happen. The finish line was a row of volunteers and we simply must say 'thank you' for volunteering and chalk up the day as a great experience where hopefully you had a lot of fun! I was so impressed with what I witnessed!
This next week, we host our home QUAD meet between Boulder, Centaurus, Monarch and ourselves. As a host of a CHSAA certified meet, we are responsible for providing a lot of volunteers. With that said, I've created a list of volunteer positions and/or areas in which you can donate. That, along with other details about the meet are below:
Volunteer sign up!! (Don't pass over me, click on me, help please!!)
Meet Schedule! The meet begins at 2:00pm with field events and 2:30 with running events. Athletes will be excused from classes at 1:00 to change out and get to the field. If you are not competing, you can get your workout completed and then volunteer at the meet!
Athlete Entry Sign Up!! This form not only allows you to tell us what events you would like to do at the home QUAD meet, but also the 2 Spring Break meets. We would LOVE to hear from all athletes, so we know if and when we are hosting practices and what to plan for over Spring Break.
In other news, we only have one more week of our fundraising and we are only at 17% of our goal! There is still time to donate! Click here to make a difference in the Track & Field program for years to come!! We have had a very generous offer from one of our track parents that wishes to remain anonymous, but has asked that I share their email:
Hello fellow Fairview Track Team Parents,
Tricia has let us know that the team needs netting to protect our runners from the activities of other sports practices. But only 17% of us have contributed!! The netting is expensive, but if we all chip in just $25 we'd have enough funds to buy it this season. So, please donate! As a special incentive, I'll match all donations up to a total of an additional $500 donation from my family. The donation window closes this week, so please do your part!
Another Fairview Track Team Parent
Finally, practices will take place at the normal time and normal place this next week, so I'll see you at the track at 4:15pm for warm-up's tomorrow! Please fill out the Entry Sign Up survey today or tomorrow. There is no guarantee that we can get you into anything in the Wednesday meet if you sign up after Monday! Deadlines are deadlines...even when we are the host!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

Hello Team! First thing is first...I'm speaking on behalf of the entire coaching staff when I say 'Congratulations' on a successful start to the season! It was so fun to watch all of you not only compete, but work together as a team. I saw groups doing warm-up's together, athletes standing at the finish line waiting to high five their teammates when they crossed the line, upperclassmen helping our newer athletes, and a lot of cheering and positive behaviors all around! Thank you!! We will be celebrating your accomplishments at the beginning of practice tomorrow, so please be ready to go at 4:15pm.
This next week, our JV squad (most of which did not compete this past Wednesday) will be going to Centaurus for their first official JV only meet! Here are the details:
If you are able to make it (and ONLY if you are able to make it), please fill out the following form with your interests! Click here to fill out your interest form! I would LOVE if you could fill this out before or on Monday, so that I can let the attendance department know who I am excusing from class.
We have a bus for this meet that will leave the Fairview senior lot at 1:35pm. You will be dismissed from your 6th period class at 1:20pm. I realize this is only about 10 minutes into the class, but it might be good to check in with your teacher and let them know why you are leaving and what you are doing.
JV meets are pretty chill! There is no official timing, so we won't have to wait on technical issues, the coaches will be timing all of our own runners, so make sure you catch one of us at the finish line to make sure we write down your results. I can guarantee that we won't catch all of you. We are coaching, answering questions and trying to get times for you all at the same time and there are a lot of you!
Parents - please take pictures of your student athletes at the meets. Our amazing photographer coach from last season, Kirk Johnson, has switched jobs and was unable to coach this season, so no more professional photos. I need all of you to take some amazing photos and send them our way! We like to capture the season with a slide show at the end of the year.
Uniforms - yes, they are a requirement!! I have them every day in my car. Please bring either $36 cash or check made payable to Fairview Track and catch me at the beginning of practice. I can retrieve them while you do your warm ups!
Volunteers - we might need a few volunteers to help run a field event, but I haven't heard which one yet. The more volunteers we can secure, the more the coaches can actually coach!! Thank you to our sole volunteer on Saturday, Don Cooper for your help with TJ!
For the rest of you:
If you are not sure if you'll be competing in Varsity or JV, please talk with your coach on Monday. Based on the outcomes of the meet on Saturday, we have a pretty good idea where you will slot in! Remember that our QUAD meet on 3/22 hosted at Fairview is both JV and Varsity together!!
We will have a few coaches holding back and leading practice on Wednesday, so please show up at the field at 4:15pm ready to go. Once you are done, it's supposed to be a gorgeous day, so swing by Centaurus and cheer on your teammates if you can!
That's it for now! Results for the Saturday meet can be found at femmertiming.com. See all of you tomorrow!!
