Dual Meet Vs Rock Canyon Results (click for results)
There were lots of encouraging performances from our athletes, especially the young kids. The varsity league relays was canceled due to the weather, but things look much more favorable this week. Below is info for March 11th to the 17th.
State Basketball Final 4:
This Friday our boys basketball team is facing Eaglecrest HS in Boulder at 8:30 p.m. We are encouraging every member of the track & field team to make the trip up to CU that evening to support the basketball team, even those that are competing in Pueblo on Saturday. We are rooting for the boys to win. If they do, the championship game is on Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. We anticipate that the Pueblo meet will be completed by 5:00 leaving enough time for athletes to make the trip up to Boulder after the meet. Athletes are free to leave with their parents after their last race to get to the game. If the meet runs late, and you are scheduled for a later event, we will not hold you back to ensure that you make the game. The drive from Pueblo to Boulder is about 2 and 1/2 hours. See below for CSU-Pueblo, Banana Belt Classic meet info.
