Congratulations to our CIF State Meet qualifiers:
Hannah, Shay, and Tiya jumped 5'4", the state meet at-large in the high jump. In back-to-back seasons the three girls qualified for State in the high jump.
Tiya, immediately after qualifying in the high jump, pr'd in the triple jump with a mark of 38'1.25. This put her in 3rd place overall, the top three automatically qualifying for the State Meet.
Congrats to Elena who overcame the weather and some early high-pressure situations to finish second in the pole vault with a height of 11'6".
Jupa ran 1:54.36 in the 800, which was a season best and earned him a 3rd place finish in an exciting race. Two tenths of a second separated 1st through 4th!

We rely heavily on donations. Thank you!
If you need to review the content from Wednesday's Parent/Athlete Meeting, please do so. Email your questions to email@example.com.
The store is now closed...
Coach Elliott may have some surpluss items. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit L-25 during lunch.
Coach Elliott ordered some extra uniforms. If you weren't able to order one, you can get one from Coach Elliott when they arrive.
This roster does not include people who were injured and have not yet tried out. This roster does not include winter sports athletes. In other words, not seeing your name here does not necessarily mean you have been cut.
In some cases, people made the roster in multiple events:
A long jumper/sprinter, for example, is an excellent track and field combination. We would expect these athletes to be both jumpers and sprinters this year.
A distance runner/thrower, however, might not work. Some of you may see multiple events that aren't the best combinations. This just means that over the next couple of weeks, we'll need to figure out what will be best for you going forward.
There will be a meeting for all athletes and parents this Wednesday, 2/13 in the DHS Library. The meeting will begin at 6pm (after practice). We will talk about uniforms, other fun apparel, the budget, fundraising, expecations, policies, etc.
I have learned over my fifteen years of coaching that there are many ways, aside from athletic ability alone, for athletes to contribute to a team. If you do not make the roster, but you believe you have the ability to make this team better, you may consider applying for an extended tryout. The application involves an interview, a written personal statement, and a letter of recommendation. In this extended tryout, we would be assessing you on your ability to demonstrate the qualities you tell us you will bring to the program.
Congratulations to all on your hard work this week. The coaches understand the physical, mental, and emotional stress that comes with a tryout process. We are proud of you all.
Over the weekend, we will post the roster here. Additionally, we will email each family explaining your status.
Tryouts will continue next week, only for athletes coming out from WINTER SPORTS and those who were INJURED and could not tryout last week.
Here's what you should do on your own:
Either 30minute easy run, followed by drills and strides, core
Warmup, drills, 15 easy strides, core
If you are already registered from last season, track and/or xc, please do not create a brand new account. You do, however, need to login and make sure that the contact information is up to date.

If you have any questions, please email Coach Elliott email@example.com
10-12 graders who missed the meeting: There will be an additional meeting on on Tuesday, 1/15 during lunch in room L-25.
This form indicates your intent to tryout for this year's team. This form along with your athletic clearance email are due to Coach Elliott by February 1.
If you are a student on the Davis High campus, and you missed last Tuesday's informational meeting, there will be an abridged version in room L-25 at lunch on Wednesday, 1/24. Make sure you plan your schedules so that you can attend.
This is a meeting for all athletes and parents interested in trying out for the 2019 team.
NOTE: THE CONTENT OF THE MEETING WILL BE DIFFERENT FROM THAT OF PREVIOUS SEASONS. ALL STUDENT-ATHLETES, NEW OR RETURNING, SHOULD ATTEND.
1. Get cleared for participation! Don't wait! Athletic Clearance is done on-line. THIS MUST BE DONE PRIOR TO ANY TRACK AND FIELD PARTICIPATION, BEFORE OR DURING THE SEASON. Please get this done now. Sometimes it takes a few weeks to schedule those physical exams. The DHS Athletics Website has information on this process and links to the necessary documentation. Click Here!
2. We will have an informational meeting in January, where the coaches will lay out the requirements and expections for trying out for and participating on this year's team. When we have a specific location/time, we will post it here.
3. Have an off-season workout plan. To those not participating in a winter sport: Preparation should begin now. Wating until February to begin training will result in poor performance, a higher likelihood of injury, and a generally unpleasant experience. The Davis Community Track and Field Club is offering a Winter Track program designed specifically to prepare athletes for the upcoming season. Click here to register. Email Coach Elliott at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.

Abby: 1st place in the triple jump!
Sondre: 1st place in the pole vault and 1st place in the 110 hurdles. Sondre ran a blazing fast 14.15 in the 110 hurdles. This is a huge school record and makes him one of the favorites in the State Meet.
Simen: 2nd place in the pole vault!
Hannah: 4th in the high jump, but she cleared 5'4", which is the at-large qualifier. Incidentally, her clearance at 5'4" would have cleared 5'5" or 5'6".

Tiya: 1st in the high jump. She jumped 5'6" again, equaling her record mark.

Hope these instructions help.
Other Uniform Information:
If you have a uniform from cross country or last track season, you do not need a new uniform. They are identical.
Uniform tops: Uniforms are gender-specific, so pay attention to which singlet you are ordering. Otherwise, the style is up to you. The singlets will be loose-fitting, while the compressions top/shimmel will be tight-fitting. Often, shorter distance people will go with the compression options, while distance folks prefer the singlets. This is only a generalization though. They are all legal uniforms.
Shorts/tights: Some of the shorts items are gender-specific too. For boys, if you're ordering a compression top, the matching shorts would be the "men's half tight" for boys or the "women's boyshort" or "5" tights" for girls. With singlets, you can order any shorts you want.
Feel free to order the athletic pants or the black tights, but these are NOT part of the uniform. You can train in them or warm up in them, but everyone must have one of the blue shorts options.
In the discus, Tazio barely missed qualifying for state. He finished 4th with a mark of 151'5".
In the high jump, Mimi (5'1") also finished 4th, barely missing state qualification. Congratulations to her high jump teammate Hannah Lybbert, who jumped 5'3", finishing 2nd and qualifying for the State Meet.
Ben Easton and Aaron Moore finished up their terrific DHS careers in the triple jump. Ben jumped 40'7.5" and Aaron, 40'1". Congrats to both guys.
Congratulations to Alyssa Lengtat and Tessa Malone, who, once again, qualified for the State Meet in the triple jump. Alyssa won the competition with a jump of 38'11.5. Tessa finished 3rd, going 38'4.25. In the same competition, Abby Lo finished 9th with a season best 36'3.5; and Annie Cui finished 10th, jumping 35'9.5". Once again, the support these four show each other is inspirational.
In the laned races, the girls 4x1 - Julia, Tessa, Paige, and Brooke - rebroke their own record, running the fastest time of the day: 47.47.
In the 100m dash, Brooke Rubinstein finished 6th, also qualifying for finals.
In the girls long jump, Alyssa made the final and finished the competition in 9th. Time to focus on the triple jump! Tessa took her first two jumps, then decided to stop so she could feel good for the upcoming 4x1 final.
Speaking of the relay... Julia, Tessa, Paige, and Brooke re-broke their own school record (again), running 47.39. This time was good for a first place overall finish. On a personal note, it's incredible to watch these four gain confidence and experience with each race. So proud!
Congratulations to Olivia O'keeffe who ran a season best 4:54.74 to finish 2nd in the 1600m. Olivia is looking great - Can't wait to see what happens next week. Abbey Fisk finished 12th in the same race: 5:13.23.
In the 100m dash, Brooke Rubinstein finished 4th in 12.29, only thee one-hundredths out of 3rd! Time to focus on the relay!
Congratulations to Emily Meyer, who went 11'4" to finish third in the pole vault and quaify for the State Meet. Kate Miller cleared the intimidating 10'1" opening height. For Kyra, the 10'1" height was bit beyond her pr. Congrats to Kyra and Kate on a great season.
We are very proud of seniors Sofia Castiglioni and Abbey Fisk who wrapped up their incredible DHS track careers in the 3200m. Sofia finished 4th and ran a huge pr: 10:36.34. Frustratingly, her time was only a second off of the at-large. Abbey doubled back from the 1600m, running 11:37.16. Sophie Lodigiani finished 6th with an excellent time of 10:56.94, very close to her pr.
Michael Vernau had another great day, qualifying for State in both the 1600m (4:13.16) and 3200m (9:11.58). Can't wait to see what Michael does in the 3200 next week!
It was a great Day - The coaches are very proud of this group. Thanks to all who came out to support!
Shay jumps 5'5" to take 2nd in the day high jump!

Thank you to the athletes, coaches, and volunteers who contributed to the success of this year's Halden Invitational. It takes a lot of work to put on a quality meet of this size.
You can view results on athletic.net or you can click here to view the Hytek pdf
Either way, please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you see any mistakes.
Great Job everybody!
Please take a look at your results on athletic.net, and email me with any errors.
The Halden Invitational is approaching. As many of you already know, this meet is a big deal for our program. First, it's a critical fundraiser: We collect admission, we charge teams to participate, and make money at concessions and outside food vendors. Fleet Feet Davis, which helps to sponsor the meet, sells t-shirts and contributes the revenue to the track and field program.
The meet is more than just a fundraising opportunity though. We take great pride in putting on a first class meet that allows maximum participation from the schools that attend. So far, we have almost 30 high schools and over 20 youth clubs.
A meet like this requires large support from our parent community. Please take a look at the sign up genius and volunteer for a shift or two. You'll see that I broke shifts into reasonable segments. I'm hoping to get these positions filled as soon as possible.
Note: I'm hoping to staff the track finishline, field events, and clerking tent first. If you feel comfortable with these jobs, please volunteer. No experience necessary. We'll help you.
Congrats to Hannah, Sondre, and Simen who represented DHS at the Arcadia Invitational over the weekend.
Sondre pr'd in the vault, hitting 18'2.5". This mark is the highest vault in California history - CA State Record!
Simen finished 8th in the competition with a vault of 15'1". Simen has had to take some time off from the vault, so this was a nice way come back from injury.
Hannah cleared 5'3" to take 3rd in the morning high jump session. She nearly missed 5'5"!
DHS wins in all four divisions against both Sheldon and Jesuit/Saint Francis. Congratulations on an outstanding, inspirational team effort. The coaches are so proud!
Please take a look at your marks. If you see any errors, please email me with the specifics.
Thank you to our parent drivers and bus riders!
Thank you to our parent drivers and bus riders!
Congrats to the small group of DHS athletes who competed at the Stanford Invitational.

Tazio takes 9th in the discus.
Outstanding efforts by both 4x4 relay teams: The boys - Jeremy, JoeVo, Jayce, Jupa - finish 15th. Jupa finishes with a 49.7 split! The girls - Odessa, Abby, Bailee, Lily - finish 21st.
Sondre and Coach Atle traveled to the prestigious Texas Relays over the weekend. Sondre's 17'11" vault won a loaded competition - Three athletes over 17! Way to go, Sondre!

Starting next week, we will take attendance at practice every day at 4:00pm. After three unexcused absences, a student-athlete will be removed from the roster.
Because we will now be holding student-athletes accountable for attending practice, it becomes especially important for athletes to communicate with coaches about conflicts.
How does one request an excused absence?
1. Log in to xcstats, and use the notify your coach of an absence function. Once there, you will be able to click on the date(s) and select the category, i.e. "sick." You will also be able to click the coaches you'd like to receive this request. Always click Spencer Elliott, Tim Groth, and your specific event coach.
2. Remember, you are not informing your coach of an absence; you are requesting that the coach excuse your absence. In the body of the email, please phrase your request as a question. You might say, "My Auntie is visiting from Illinois. She is only here one night. May I miss practice so that I can spend as much time with her as possible?" If you write something vague like, "family commitment," I will not excuse your absence.
3. Please leave me enough time to respond. The sooner we know about the possible absence, the better. We need enough time to read the request and respond - at least 24 hours in advance. Practice starts at 4pm. If your request comes in at 3:57, we will not see it until after practice is over. Unexcused.
4. Open your email and read my response. Do not assume that we granted your request. Also, sometimes we have follow up questions.
What if one is sick?
If you attend school, you must attend practice. If you do not attend school, you may not attend practice. If you miss practice because you are sick, please let me know through xcstats as soon as you can. We understand that people can't predict sickness 24 hours in advance.
Our first practice will be on Monday at 4pm at the DHS Track.
Make sure you've handled all of your responsibilities, so that you do not have to watch practice from the side. Please contact Coach Elliott with any questions: email@example.com
Please feel free to revisit the presentation from the informational meeting.
Winter Track begins after Thanksgiving Break. Please visit www.dctfc.com to get signed up!

Preseason Conditioning continues after Winter Break - See you on Tuesday!
This season, we will be running preseason track and field through the Davis Community Track and Field Club. DCTFC, in addition to being an official USA Track and Field (USATF) club, is a 501C3 which supports track and field in the community.
By running the program through the club, we are able to open the practices to a broader age range and hire additional coaches to help with event groups and conditioning. There is a fee to join: $125 for the whole session, Monday through Thursday, November 28 through February 2. We will not run practices during the DJUSD winter break. Scholarships are available. Please let Coach Elliott know if you have any questions about the cost.
The purpose of preseason conditioning is the same as it has been in past years. Our goal is to prepare track and field athletes for success this spring. We will work on proper mechanics, we will develop strength and fitness intelligently, we will build a foundation that will allow athletes to maximize their potential this season. In comparison to the summer program, the winter program is more rigorous. We spend much less time in event groups; we spend more time on strength building and conditioning. Again, our goal is to prepare athletes for the spring season. The program is open to new and returning track and field athletes - no prior experience necessary!
