Hello Eagles Track Athletes & Parents!
We have 9 hours left to RAISE THE BAR! Please help us get closer or hit our goal!! Donate now, please!
Did your athlete enjoy the season? Did you enjoy the banquet last night? Isn’t it amazing to be part of such a successful Track and Field program? Last night we learned about some special athletes that had “can-do” attitudes, great confidence to be leaders, and a couple athletes that are ranked in the top 2!!! of the United States in their events. We also learned that 67% of the team are scholar athletes (that means they have a >3.5 GPA) and we were blown away by the amazing 36 seniors and what their plans are for the future!
The way this happens beyond their talent and hard work, is with your continued support of the program. Please donate to our efforts to run this first class, quality Track & Field program.
The funds we raise this year will be used towards the purchase of a new pole vaulting pit. A quality pit costs about $20K – $26K. We will likely have to get multiple sources to help fund this as it is a big expenditure for the team. In addition to this big expenditure we also have other expenses throughout the season such as other equipment for shot, javelin and discus, the FAT (fully automatic timing system), high jump/long jump elevated platform, hurdles and invitational fees.
Family members, fans, athletes:
Remember to join us on Tuesday night to recognize the amazing Track athletes of Issaquah High School. We will also have an opportunity to munch and mingle afterwards.
Athletes please bring your washed uniform in a plastic bag with your name on it. If you cannot attend meeting bring your uniform in a plastic bag with your name on it to Ms. Pfeifle (book keeper) after you have been issued a fine.
Please sign up to bring something to share at the Munch and Mingle (right after the recognition ceremony)
Please email LTCLAWS@COMCAST.NET with your name, your track athlete’s name and the email that she can use to communicate with you.
