WE NEED DONATIONS FOR THE CRAB FEED  XC TEAM SILENT AUCTION BASKETS BY JAN 20TH!

A silent auction will be held during the event, and all MCHS teams are required to donate item(s) for the auction.  Each teams keeps 80% of the money raised from the auction items.  In previous years, we have collected enough donations to create several gift baskets, and cross-country has earned $1000+ from this event!   If you have something to donate (anything from merchandise, gift certificates, wine, etc...), please contact Melanie Bartlett (799-7306, rmbartlett5@aol.com) or Jennifer Jensen (206-1018, psychicjen@sbcglobal.net) to arrange pick-up or drop-off.  Cash donations welcome also!

PREVIEW OF OUR COACHING STAFF FOR THE UPCOMING TRACK SEASON!  

...With Head Coaches Ian Myers and Michael Pointer and long time Assistant Coach Michael Balasek all stepping down from their positions last season, it's been a significant challenge to pull together a replacement crew for this upcoming season!


...But we're getting it done!  -See below to see how the 2015 Track and Field Coaching staff is shaping up; we've managed to pull together quite an impressive line-up of part-time Assistant Coaches, but still looking for another Head Coach to share the burden with Greg of managing the team (especially on meet days) assist with all the administrative tasks (expecting a roster of ~160!) and help sustain the winning tradition and awesome experience that is MCHS Track and Field.

First day of Track and Field practice is Feb 9th!  ...As a reminder, the track season is longer than XC = 14 weeks for most leading up the NBL Championships and 17 weeks for those elite few qualifying for the State Championships on June 5/6.

HEAD COACH #1) Greg Fogg
HEAD COACH #2) TBD   -Please contact Greg ASAP if you know of anyone that can commit to 5 days/wk + some Saturdays?

2015 Volunteer Assistant Coaches (commitments vary between 2-4 days/wk):

-SPRINTS/RELAYS: Herbie Polk, Sr., Cliff Newsome
-DISTANCE: Sheryl VanTassel, Matt Bennett, Salvador Avelar, Marion Maassen
-THROWS: Joel Duran
-HURDLES: Ian Myers
-LJ/TJ: April Harris
-HIGH JUMP: Taylor Cerini
-POLE VAULT: TBD (slight possibility Emmi may come back if not, we'll prob. NOT have PV!)
-CORE STRENGTH TRAINING: Caleb Ridgway and Mike Stauber

MVP or TEAM PARENT/LEAD FOR VOLUNTEERS:  Kim Cerini -Please contact her if you want to help with anything, we need lots of volunteers!   cerini4@sbcglobal.net

Either Kim or I will be posting more info on the Track and Field Facebook page AND we will be scheduling a meeting in the next few weeks right after school on the MCHS campus to give everyone an opportunity to meet some of the new coaches.

...I hope you'all have been running consistently and have found your "happy pace" :) during this Winter break!
