The Track Team will depart for the Rochester Meet at 7:30 tomorrow morning
from LMS. Be a little early. It is likely to be very warm-in the afternoon. It is likely to be very chilly in the morning. Prepare a layered outfit: shorts, pants, uniform
top, long sleeves, and hoodie. Also, it is a good idea to bring and wear sun screen.
Remember, whatever we wear under the uniform must be plain and black. We
will need to match as a team at this and all invites. We will ride the bus as a team. Only team members on the roster for the Rochester Invite may ride the bus. Athletes will need a ride home. Parents are encouraged to pick athletes up at the Rochester Invite (behind Rochester High School). Athletes may leave when their events are completed. Any athletes who are not picked up at the meet will ride the
bus back to LMS to meet parents for a ride home. Drink water. Eat fruit and vegetables. Avoid extra sugar and caffeine.
