Need More Cowbell?

If you walk into the track office this week you will notice anything and everything needed to put on 1st class Track Meet. That is because next weekend, we will be hosting the 2010 Track and Field Carnival.     Let me share with you the Top 10 Reasons you should come to the W&L Track and Field Carnival in 2010:

10. It is 2 days, March 26-27—If you can’t make it one day there are plenty of great races and competitions left on the other day.

9. We are hosting a Heptathlon/Decathlon—-Track and Field’s greatest athletes will compete in 7 events for the Women and 10 events for the Men over the 2 day meet.

8. A number of events will take place on Friday night under the lights including the Steeple Chase, the 4×4, Youth Mile, 1500, 5k and 10k.

7. To watch our very own compete in Track and Field—Our Athletes will be competing in their best events so come out and cheer them on!

6. To see some different teams—We have a wide variety for teams coming to our meet. From MIT and Carnegie Mellon to Ohio Northern to Elizabethtown, to Shippensburg, Lock Haven and Kutztown and our neighbors to the south Virginia Tech just to name a few.

5. High Quality Competition—Last year we had 4 National Qualifying performances coming out of the meet.  We expect even more this year.

4. To hear the latest and greatest, get your heart pumping and your head banging music for the athletes and spectators to listen to.

3. To get to see the TOP SECRET awards t-shirts—Always a coveted prize—they go to the top 3 in each event.  Look for the BLUE!

2. To watch the kids 50m—New to the docket this year.  My daughter Chase will be racing and will look to establish the meet record for the 2/3 year olds.  If you would like more information or to sign your child up for the race, please contact me at hoeyk@wlu.edu .

1. Lots of CowBell!—The distance night draws the kind of folks who enjoy the excitement of being right down on the track, in the face of the runners, ringing cowbells as they run past.  It is just something you’ve gotta experience.
