Archdiocese Meet Info

NFL Historical Imagery

I hope you all enjoy this weekend – it looks like we’re jumping right to summer, and this break from the rain is really appreciated.

Please enjoy yourselves this weekend.  We have no team track practice Saturday morning, so we’ll see you next week Tuesday and Thursday for practice.  I recommend that those still competing get a run or two in over the weekend.

Below is the performance list and schedule of events for the Archdiocese Meet, which is next Saturday 6/4 at Franklin Field.  Please know that the meet may run significantly ahead or behind schedule, so please allow yourself plenty of time to get in place.  We’ll meet where we usually do, near section SD (think San Diego or Scooby Doo!)  This performance list is all we’ll get by email.  For a program which shows the heats and lanes, you need to buy a program for a couple bucks at the meet itself.  Yeah, I know.

Shot Put (just Colin) is located a 10 minute walk from the stadium, so make sure to plan accordingly (and coordinate with us so we can stop by.)

2016 Archdiocesan Champs – Time Schedule

I’ll publish the meet roster with relay teams early next week.  Not much should change from previous meets.

Area A Results

Congratulations to our Panthers for a great job done yesterday.  We moved lots of kids on to the Archdiocese Championships, and came away with two gold medals and even an Area Meet Record.  Almost all performances resulted in season bests against tough competition, so you’ve got to be thrilled about that.  Each team finished twelfth (against 37 boy teams and 38 girls teams.)

2016 Area A Champs Final Results

Relay Teams in the top five, and individuals in the top eight at this meet are moving on to the Archdiocese Championship at Franklin Field.  Note that the relay team lineups may be adjusted by the coaches prior to this meet.  If you have qualified but can’t make the final meet please let me know as soon as possible.

Area A Program


Please note that the time schedule in the program is just an estimate, and we may run substantially ahead of time.  Please allow yourself plenty of time.

This meet usually has t-shirts for sale, along with hot dogs and hamburgers and other snacks, if I remember correctly.

We’ll put a tent up on the hill above the finish line to use as a meeting place.

Area A Meet


Hi All, This Sunday’s Area A Championship Meet is at 1:00 p.m. at Plymouth-Whitemarsh High School.  (201 E Germantown Pike, Plymouth Meeting, PA 19462)  The top eight at this meet (or 5 relays) qualify to run at Franklin Field.  Parking can be kind of a mess at P-W so make sure to leave yourself plenty of time to get there without stress, especially if you are in one of the 4 x 200m relays (first events.)

If your child has qualified to run but you are choosing not to attend and I don’t know about it, please let me know as soon as possible so that I can make sure everyone can participate.

Below are listed the qualifiers along with the projected relay teams.  Know that these may be different than last week’s meet so please read carefully.  If your child is an alternate please contact me to discuss if we’ll likely have coverage in the event of an issue if you don’t attend.

Congratulations to those that are moving on!

4 x 200m runners/alternates – please be early and save Coach Don gray hairs.  It makes him sad if he can’t field a relay team because only three members are there, and then the other parents yell at him.  And again, if you are one of these people on the list above and aren’t attending the meet can you please let us know ASAP so we can make sure everyone can participate?


Coach Todd and I stayed late last night to pick up the medals won by the team yesterday, we’ll bring them to practice Tuesday.

Medals usually provided by the region for the subnovices weren’t, but I’ll have some for anyone that wants one at practice tomorrow.  After that, I’ll leave a few in a box by my mailbox so you can come pick them up whenever (after Tuesday night.)

Region 17 Results

Great job by all of our athletes today – it looks like both the boys and girls teams each finished fourth in the Region – a great accomplishment, especially for a team of our size.

Individuals placing sixth or better have advanced to the Area A Championship, along with relay teams fourth and better.

We’ll review these over the next few days and post updated relay teams for next week’s meet this week.

Everyone on the team, whether you’ve qualified to move on or not, is welcomed to join us at practice this week, usual times.

If you cannot make it to the Area meet and have qualified please let me know.  (not EBaschoff or QMulcahy.)

Congratulations again to everyone.

Region Meet

We’ll see everyone today at 12:30 p.m. at Bishop Shanahan High School for our Region 17 Championship Meet.

I made an error in the last note I wrote.  From this meet the top six individuals and four relay teams advance to the Area A Championship Meet.  Next week, the top eight individuals and top five relay teams in the Area Meet advance to the Archdiocese Meet.

I’m sorry for the confusion.  Good luck to everyone today!  (Do your best and all will be well.)
