  • 4-8-2019 Lessons from the Rings - High School District Meet

    The High school competed in the 30-3A district track meet. I know many of you get bird calls. Coach McCarthy was sending out bird calls in real time. The only calls I own are an owl hoot, a turkey yelper, and a duck call. So, everyone knows how we did I send out these electronic mails. I guess for ten years I have been spoiled competing with the teams from Devine, Fredericksburg, and Bandera who insist that the standards for the throwing rings are maintained and the competition is honorable. Unfortunately, no one insisted on treating throwers as an important part of the meet.

Below are the Area Qualifiers.

  • 4-4-2019 Lessons from the Rings - Junior High District

    The Junior High completed their season in track. I know both boys and girls sent out results but there are a couple of lessons learned in the rings. It is like Paul Harvey's the rest of the story. This meet was filled with just 15 throwers per division. We spent most of the season throwing against at least 30 throwers from schools from Medina Valley, Devine, and Hondo. When you are able to compete against tougher competition the district meet should be a meet we could excel. The throwers took three of the District titles in the discus rings and one shot put champion. Here is how they finished.
