Competition Meets: Our team will begin practicing on Monday, May 2nd after school, and practices will be Monday – Thursday, and will run from 3:45-5pm. As we get closer to Regional Meet, we will be practicing at the JMH Track several times/week. Those committed to either MVHS Volleyball or Rugby teams will be permitted to only attend a minimum of 2/week, until those teams’ seasons are finished. All other participants will be expected to make all practices. Track is a very short season, lasting only 5 weeks, so it is very important to make use of all practice time available. If you are not able to make a practice, please let Mrs. Stewart know in person ASAP. The NBIAA North East Regional Meet is scheduled for Saturday, May 28th at the Anna Malenfant Track in Dieppe. Top 8 competitors in each event (except HJ) will then qualify to compete in the NBIAA Provincial Meet, which is the following Saturday, June 4th at the Canada Games Stadium, in Saint John. MVHS Track and Field athletic fee is $50, and must be paid prior to attending the Regional Meet. Track events: 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1500m, 3000m, 80m Hurdles (JG), 100m Hurdles (JB, SG), 110m Hurdles (SB), 400m Hurdles **Relays are formed after Regionals and compete only at Provincials.
