    To those that did not make the team, don't let this be your last try! Continue to work hard, ask Mr Smith for assistance on how to develop and try out again next year! 

     

     

    The 2024 SHMS Track season begins on Monday, March 18. Athletes interested in trying out will need to have a valid VHSL Physical dated after May 1, 2023 on file with the school. 

    Tryouts:
    Tryouts will last for 4 days, and over those days athletes will have opportunities to be timed/measured in the following events: 
    Sprints: 100m, 200m, 400m dashes, 110m hurdles
    Distance: 800m, 1600m, 2400m runs 
    Jumps: Long Jump, High Jump, Triple Jump
    Throws: Shot Put, Discus

    The top 3-8 athletes in each event (the number of athletes kept varies by event) whose performances hit the qualifying standards will be kept for the team. Due to bus constraints, we are limited to around 40 team members. Athletes are encouraged to try as many events as possible.

    For tryouts, athletes will need:

    • Athletic wear (prepare for cold weather) - Running shoes, shorts/athletic pants/leggings, sweatshirt/light jacket, hat/gloves (optional)
    • Water - Water bottle refill stations are available
    • Valid VHSL Physical form on file (Only one needed per school year, must be dated after May 1, 2023)
