Hello families,

1.  Our first meet of the season will take place on Monday at Lincoln/Sudbury HS.  It is difficult to predict the start and end time of our meets because it depends when the head official arrives.  We are hopeful that Monday's meet will begin around 3:15.  If everything runs smoothly, the final relay should be completed around 4:45.  The bus will transport both the girls and boys teams back to WMS at the conclusion of the meet.  If all goes well, we should be back home by 5:30.

2.  For those who will be coming to watch the meet or who are new to the sport, you will find the order of events below.  Most of our meets follow this order throughout the season:

Boys and Girls Mile together
Boys 100 meter dash
Girls 100 meter dash
Boys 800 meter
Girls 800 meter
Boys 400 meter
Girls 400 meter
Boys 200 meter
Girls 200 meter
Boys 4x100 relay
Girls 4x100 relay
Boys and Girls 4x400 relay together

**The field events take place at the same time as the running events.  Athletes who are competing in both running and field events must pay attention to the order of events and listen for their event to be called.  If an athlete misses their event they cannot run it at a different time**

The meet is scored by the home team and points are given to the top 3 performers in each event.

1st place finisher (5 points)
2nd place finisher (3 points)
3rd place finisher (1 point)

Relay winners receive 5 points.  Points are given to the top relay teams only.

3.  Please encourage your child to wear their orange uniforms to school on Monday as a team psych!

4.  Finally, if you plan on picking up your child from an away meet, your child must bring in a written note to the coaches or send an email stating that your child will not be returning to school on the bus.  Thanks in advance for cooperating with this town procedure.

5.  Hope to see you at the meet!

Hello everyone,

Due to the lousy forecast tomorrow, we will be having our practice at the middle school.  Please plan to pick up your child around 3:45.  

We will definitely be having practice at the high school on Thursday afternoon.  Practice will be finished around 3:45.  Please pick your child up at the high school on Thursday.  

Finally, if your child has not purchased a uniform for the season this can be done tomorrow.  The uniforms should arrive to WMS tomorrow afternoon and we can distribute them during practice to those who have already paid or those who bring in a $10.00 check made payable to Wayland Boosters.  

As usual, if you have any questions, please let us know.

Hello everyone!

Just a few things for next week:

Monday - We will be practicing at the high school.  Team members will get on one of the first round of buses.  Coaches will be at the buses at dismissal to make sure everyone gets to where they need to be.  Please remind your child to bring their practice clothes to the high school for practice.  If someone misses the bus, there is not another way to be transported to the high school.  There will also be announcements at school reminding all track members to hustle out to the buses.  Pick up will be at the high school at 3:45.

Tuesday - We will practice from 2:30-3:30 at the middle school. There is a slight chance that we might be at the high school again.  We will notify everyone if we are at the high school.

Thursday - This is the last practice before vacation.  It will be at the middle school.  Pick up is at 3:30.

Hello everyone,

1.  Our team has been working very hard over the past week and you can already see the improvement in many of our runners!  We are planning to run indoors again on Thursday.  Friday looks better, so we should be able to practice outdoors.  

2.  We will have practice at the high school next Monday.  Please pick your child up at the high school at 3:45.  The weather forecast looks great for Monday so we should be able to have both a running work-out and then team members can try some of the field events.  It is always fun getting on the track!
