Halden Invitational Meet Info: April 21st, 2018

We will be participating in the Halden Invitational at Davis High School (315 West 14th Street, Davis, CA). This is an exciting and unique meet format. The meet will begin at 10 am with Sprint and Field Events and will conclude with a Distance Carnival which begins at approximately 4:45 pm.

Please note that this is the same day as Picnic Day in Davis and there will be some traffic issues! The best way to avoid Davis Picnic Day traffic will be to take the Mace exit just after you cross the Causeway and make a right, it will bring you onto Covell Blvd and
the Davis High Stadium will be on your left.

Bella Vista Bronco Invitational Meet Info: April 14, 2018

The Bronco Invitational will be a rolling start format. We have added estimates of starts to the order of events below but these can change significantly, especially as the meet progresses. This will be an all-day event, cheer on your fellow teammates and bring some homework! We provide estimates to try and help you gauge inviting friends and family to watch but things can change and you don’t want to miss your event.

All athletes should check in with the “Clerk of the Course” for their races when called to do so. The Clerk of the Course is located at the northwest corner of the track. Athletes in running events must contact the Clerk of the Course to receive lane assignments. The Clerk of the Course will assign you a “hip number” when you check in for your race. The hip number should be worn on the left side of your shorts. Please do not obscure your hip number by having your singlet outside of your shorts.

Field Event Check-in: Athletes should check in with the official in the field event area prior to the start of the division they are competing in.

Coaches Corner

Coach Lea Wallace:

We’ve had quite an exciting start to the season so far. Many of our athletes have walked away from their races with personal best times and it’s not even April!

To continue to progress as the championship season approaches, it’s very important that our athletes maintain their fitness by running and training consistently.

If you cannot make it to practice over Spring Break, continue to run on your own (4-5 miles and strides, 4-5 days a week.).

Please contact me by e-mail (lfwallace1@gmail.com) if you would like me to e-mail you a workout for the week.

Coach David Badovinac:

Rio Sophomore, Aurora Helfrich had a great day in the Varsity Girls Discus at the Metro Invitational on Saturday, March 24th. She won the Girls Discus with a best mark of 99′ 7″. This mark was a PR for Rory by approximately 25′. Also, this mark makes her the #1 ranked girl in Discus in the Capital Athletic League. Congratulations Aurora!

Rio’s “three Amigos” did it again. They dominated at the Metro Invitational on Saturday, March 24th. Jose Miranda won the F/S Boys Shot-put and got 2nd place in the F/S Boys Discus. Amadeus Romero won the F/S Boys Discus (with a big PR) and got 2nd place in the F/S Boys Shot-put. Ty Contreras completed the sweep of medals by getting 3rd place in both F/S Boys Shot-put and Discus.
