5/17 Lake Conference 9th/10th Grade Championship


5/11 True Team Section 7AAA Meet

Our 4x400 Relay team ran an incredible time of 3:24.96, dropping almost 5 seconds from our previous season best to take 2nd place on Friday.  We ended up 8 points short of a wild card spot for the True Team State meet.

We believe we are still one of the best teams in the state and we plan on proving that over the next couple of weeks as we enter Conference and Section Championships.

Final standings:

1st Place: Wayzata - 1020

2nd Place: Minnetonka - 928

Transportation Waiver

A transportation waiver is required for any athlete not riding the bus to away meets.  We may not have buses available for all meets due to driver shortages, so I encourage all athletes to have a waiver on file.

Please fill this out and return to Coach Finch.  Either paper copy or email/picture work.

First (hope to be annual) Lake Conference Track and Field FMSC Challenge

On Saturday Morning, March 19, Track and Field athletes from across the Lake Conference gathered at the Chanhassen Feed My Starving Children site to participate in a packing session.  Roughly 120 athletes participated along with many of their coaches.  Thanks to their efforts, 112 boxes were packed.  That equates to 24,192 meals feeding 66 children for a year.  With the war in Ukraine, the demand has greatly increased, so this is a greatly appreciated effort.  

Below are some photos of the fantastic participants in this event.

Pre-competition Nutrition

7 Tips for a Great Pre-Game Meal 

  1. Don’t Experiment
    Don’t try new foods on a game day, it might cause unexpected problems.
  2. Avoid Soft Drinks and Candy
    Sugar is your enemy, empty calories that don’t provide long term fuel source.
  3. High Carbohydrates
    Never can go wrong with breads, pasta, rice…pure long lasting energy source.
  4. Timing
    Takes about 3 hours to empty the stomach of quality food.
  5. Fluids
    Plenty of water and sports drinks…stay away from carbonated sugary soft drinks.
  6. Avoid High Fat Intake
    Fat takes longer to digest and lots of water to process.
  7. Limit Protein Intake
    Protein is a weak energy source, great for building tissue but limit the amount immediately prior to competition. Protein is great for recovery after competitions or workouts.
