We want to congratulate everyone who qualified for the State Track Championships that will be help at Berry College, May 10-12. This will be the largest number of qualifiers in at least a decade. The list of qualifiers is attached. We will send the itinerary for the state meet early next week.
The following items are very important in order for us to be ready for the track banquet scheduled for Wednesday, May 16.
2. Roster and Track Dues: The final banquet roster is attached. It includes information on dues and uniforms. Please check to see if you name is on the roster. Please contact Coach Pinkerton or Rowland if you paid dues and there is not a "Y" next to your name. We know there are mistakes in bookkeeping due to our booster club officer transition.
You can pay dues by check or by using the PayPal link /paypal.me/NGHSTF
. The dues are $160 per athlete ($80 for additional athletes). The dues cover all entry fees into meets (we pay between $100 - $200 for every meet we enter), snacks and drinks that we buy for the meets, team tee shirts (every athlete received a short and long sleeve tee shirt), coaching stipend (the county does not pay for all the coaching stipends), banquet meal for the athlete (the parents and guests must pay for their meal), senior gifts (we try to give our seniors a small gift in appreciation for their service), track supplies (this year we ordered new relay batons, a new rake for the long/triple jump pit, cones, new pallets for the high jump and pole vault pits, and additional shots and discs), and other misc items.
