Welcome to the 2017-2018 Indoor Track & Field Team! All members need to have their required forms (CIPPE and HGP Player Contract) in to Mr. Stewart before you can begin practice!
Always check here for the most information and stay abreast of current happenings through Twitter!
We welcome anyone who is willing to work hard with a positive attitude. Intramural football players can be on the indoor track & field team, but they must come over to the track after their games to get in an abbreviated practice on game days. New members may come out late if they do not make their first choice winter HGP team. Some accomodations are possible to help new members explore their gifts and talents!
Practice begins on Friday, November 17th. We meet at the track if the weather is sunny above 50 degrees and inside in the upper gym near the stage otherwise.

HGP is instituting/formalizing a new driving policy for students. See the note from the Athletic Director below:
[Mr. Stewart] met with winter teams last week regarding the new driving permission form. The form is only available in the parent portal of the www.holyghostprep.org
website. Parents need to know their username and password to access the form. If they do not know it, there is a "forgot username/pw" prompt at the parent portal.
... this document needs to be completed asap.
Students were told that if they are caught carpooling without this form signed that they would face discipline action and lose that privilege.
Meet Lineups are posted under link on left. Check out what you are competing in on Monday! Bus leaves HGP at 2:45pm. You may take the bus or get there on your own. You only need to be at the meet in time enough to warmup and you only need to stay at the meet long enough to properly warmdown after your event. If not taking the bus, be sure to check with your event coach on appropriate arrival time! It is far to go if late to warmup properly and not compete!
