With the ever growing popularity of track nationwide and given the success that the high school team has enjoyed, it is no wonder that 150+ kids will run the Saline Middle School this year. The middle school has put together a coaching staff that many high schools would love to have and The Hornet News sat down today with longtime friend Sandy Stafford to discuss middle school track.
When I asked Sandy to point out an athlete or two that stood out above the rest, she simply said that she could not. She went on to say, “that are so many great athletes that singling anyone out with inadvertently leave someone out.” Fair enough and a great problem to have.
Sandy did want The Hornet News to get some important information out as the season will soon be starting. It is not too late to get out if you are still interested. Below are list of important dates and some very important links. If your son or daughter has already in a school (non club) sport, then these forms should have already been completed.
First day of practice is Monday March 31st from 3:00pm to 5:00pm.
The parent information meeting is Wednesday April 2nd at 5:15pm in the middle school cafeteria.
