USATF Meet Results and Regional Qualifiers

USATF parents- I will be posting the results to the website and sending out an email to the program as a whole about the great performances we saw at the USATF meet on Saturday, but I wanted to get the full results to you ASAP. They are attached as a Word document to this email. The regional meet will be in NYC July 14-15.

Track Parents- This week we will have practice on Tuesday and Thursday at LHS 5-6 pm (no Monday extra session) for only the kids doing the USATF meet on Saturday in Fitchburg.

June 9 Meet, Practices, and Extra Monday Session

Track parents- We had a ton of great, and in a few cases, astounding, performances at the Middle School Amherst Meet, the Middle School State Meet, and at our meet against Ludlow.

His previous best from last year was over 7 minutes. Nate skipped the 6's entirely and ran 5:54 on Saturday. Elly Narotsky PR'd by 29 seconds in the 1600m with a 6:48.
