HGP overcomes Peddie with 4x400m Relay win: 46-40
Congratulations to our scorers, tangible and intangible, for making our scoring dual meet vs. the Peddie School a tough fought WIN! Special kudos to our scorers who carried the bulk of the load! One less third place and the meet is tied! One less second place and we lose the meet! We only won three events: the 1600, 800, and 400, and yet we won the meet! Despite losing the other six events! Great team effort! And many letters were won, too, while setting life-time personal bests! Woohoo! Check updated letter list for 2013-14 posted here

Kevin Dare Invite WOW! Are you ready to allow yourself a personal best?
With the cooperation and hard work of our athletes, the 2013-14 Holy Ghost Prep Indoor Track & Field Team has begun to rumble! The percentage of personal best performances was incredible! 14 of 18 athletes had lifetime bests in at least one of their events! Accounting for surgeries, that over 80%! Work with the coaches toward success! Fear not the temporary pain and allow yourself to make lasting memories! It is fun to run fast, throw or jump far or high!

Time to Focus!
It's exam week -- and that means proper preparation and dedication to your academic and athletic commitments! Study when and where possible, but make your study break a track & field practice!
Lineup for January 18th's meet at Haverford to be posted by Wednesday. Proposed invitees to January 25th's Penn State Kevin Dare High School Invitational here. All athletes compete at the Thursday, January 30th, scoring dual meet at the Peddie School. Probable non-scorers can choose their events! Note that there is no long jump, triple jump, or pole vault though. The 4x200m Relay, the Distance Medley Relay, and Matt Creekmore in the Pole Vault will compete at the Poreda Invitational at the Lawrenceville School on Wednesday, January 29th.
We are approaching the end of the semester and the end of the season....are you working yourself appropriately for both?

Athlete Communication and Planning needs to improve!
Meet lineups are posted as soon as enough information is available to compose such. Athletes are entered according to each meet's team and individual goals given existing depth charts, i.e. prior recorded performances. See revised meet lineup below in the resource folder Meet Lineups. Remember to read! Transportation is only provided for those who request it early, not the night before the meet!
Athletes need to review the posted meet and practice schedule with their parents and then the athlete should work out potential conflicts with Coach Meistering. Always plan well to get enough rest to stay healthy! God, family and academic responsibities come before track and field, but athletes need to not have much else ahead so that you can further explore your athletic talents!
We need to improve from this first meet! Communicate, prepare, plan! Study, rest, drink fluids and stay healthy! Do you want to be a successful student athlete, don't you?

Prepare to Excel!
Daily practice will yield fantastic physical conditioning! But that only matters if you are not only an athlete, but also a competitor! AND not only a student, but also a successful one! Manage your life to meet your athletic and academic responsibilities, while still keeping God and Family first! Practice well to compete well! Dress warmly....it is winter and we do practice outside...
