Beaver County Championships
On Saturday, April 20th the Cougars competed in the Beaver County Championships where several members of the Men's and Women's Team made their way to the podium. The highlight of the meet, however, was Noah Thayer who vaulted 12'6 in order to claim the title of Beaver County Champion. Congratulations, Noah!
Start of the 2013 Season
There are a couple of things to be aware of as we begin the 2013 Track and Field Season. First, all athletes need to remember to turn in their Rules and Regulations Signature Sheet before they can compete. Second, athletes need to get their $20.00 for the Boosters Club in as soon as possible. This donation allows the organization to fulfill our needs throughout the season. Finally, be sure to keep the evening of March 18th open as we will be having a team night at Elite Runners and Walkers in Robinson Township. Athletes will get 15% off if they buy one pair of shoes/spikes and 25% off if they buy two pairs; plus, pizza will be provided.
