Coach Jose Nebrida turns 73 on Thursday 2/19!

 On Monday, February 16, 2015, the Northside Varsity Women Track & Field Team celebrated President's Day with a Hill workout and were rewarded for their hard work with unlimited Gatorade. The Northside Varsity Women also had an outstanding training day in the weight room.

 Every May, the athletes that do well in the IHSA Sectional Championships, are consistently the ones that train on Saturdays and Holidays. Athletes that train only 4-5 days a week, are at a major disadvantage in preparing for an IHSA Sectional Track meet.

 The athletes that train on weekends, and Holidays have an additional 28 days of quality preparation under their belt before an IHSA Sectional meet. Saturday and Holiday practices make a huge difference for a Track program.

 The Northside Varsity Women are preparing for the New Trier Varsity Indoor Classic. There is no Sophomore division, and ALL athletes compete at the Varsity level, including Freshman. The meet will take place on Thursday, February 19, 2015. Northside will also be celebrating Coach Jose Nebrida's 73rd birthday at the meet. 

 Northside will feature Senior Elizabeth O'Conor, Sophomore Anna Pasek, Senior Caroline Owens, and Senior Madison Weatherly in the 4x800m Relay at the New Trier Varsity Indoor Classic.

 Northside will feature Sophomore Fiona Casey, and Freshman Sara McCoy in the 800m run at the New Trier Varsity Indoor Classic.

 Northside will also feature Senior Madison Weatherly, Junior Violet Sackett, and Sophomore Anna Pasek in the 1600m run at the New Trier Varsity Indoor Classic.

 Northside will also feature Senior Elizabeth O'Conor, Senior Caroline Owens, Freshman Sara McCoy, and Sophomore Fiona Casey in the 4x400m Relay at the New Trier Varsity Indoor Classic.

 Meet packets were distributed before the President's Day practice, on Monday, February 16, 2015, and the bus will leave for New Trier High school at 3:09 pm on Thursday, February 19, 2015. The New Trier Varsity Indoor Classic is located at 385 Winnetka Ave., Winnetka, Illinois. The meet will commence at 4:00 pm.

The bar was then raised to 4'6. Wilson and Maloney both made three outstanding attempts at 4'6, but were unable to clear it. Aleah Wilson and Molly Maloney were in a tie for first place with jumps of 4'4. The tie for first place was broken, by awarding first place to the athlete with the least amount of misses in the competition. Northside Freshman Aleah Wilson had one less miss than Molly Maloney, and was awarded FIRST PLACE!

Northside also features a strong 4x800m Relay with Sophomore Fiona Casey, Freshman Citlali Blanco, Feshman Fiona Panther, and Freshman Sara McCoy. The Northside Sophomores also feature an outstanding hurdles core with Sophomore Vivekae Kim, and Sophomore Sara Kelly. The Northside Sophomore-Freshman Girls will take on Niles North, Loyola Academy, and host New Trier.

 The Northside Varsity Women open the Indoor Track season at Evanston High School on Friday, February 13, 2015. The Northside Varsity Women are competing in 18 Track meets this season. The IHSA maximum amount of Track meets allowed in a season is 18.

 Evanston features a 4x480M relay, instead of the traditional 4x400m Relay, for a challenging, and spectacular finish to the meet.

Caroline Owens, Violet Sackett, Fiona Casey, Anna Pasek, and Sara McCoy lead Varsity Women in impressive Saturday workout

image_name2

 On Saturday, January 31, 2015, Northside Captain Caoline Owens, Junior Violet Sackett, Sophomores Fiona Casey, Anna Pasek, and Freshman Sara McCoy arrived at Northside at 9 am to work towards qualifiying for the 2015 IHSA State Track & Field Championships.

 Every May, the athletes that do well in the IHSA Sectional Championships, are consistently the ones that train on Saturdays. Athletes that train only 5 days a week, are at a major disadvantage in preparing for an IHSA Sectional Track meet.

 The athletes that train on weekends, have an additional 28 days of quality preparation under their belt before an IHSA Sectional meet. Saturday practices make a huge difference for a Track program.

 On Saturday, after a good warm-up, Northside Assistant Coach Patrick O'Connor put the Varsity women through a very impressive workout, that consisted of 2.5 miles of intervals (8x60 seconds hard, jog recovery, 1 to 1 ratio). The workout was followed by a cool down, and core training. Coach O'Connor was very pleased with the work ethic and quality of the performances, and praised the Northside Varsity Women.

 The distance runners will conduct a recovery run on their own, on Sunday, and be ready for practice on Monday with the knowledge that they are putting in the work that will make a difference in May 2015.

Queen of the Quarter: Fiona Casey

 On Friday, January 23, 2015, the Northside Track & Field Team gathered at the main entrance of Northside College Prep, for departure to North Park University for the 10th Annual Queen of the Quarter competition! 

 A special thanks to North Park University Assistant Athletic Director Susan Zimmer and staff, for hosting this great event.

 Every available member of the Northside Track & Field Team, regardless if they were a thrower, distance runner, sprinter, jumper, or hurdler, raced in one heat of the 400m Dash and competed in one flight of the Shot Put.

  In 2015, 22 members of the Northside Varsity Women Track & Field Team competed in the Queen of the Quarter competition. Two athletes were excused from the 400m because of medical reasons.

  In 2015, 21 members of the Northside Varsity Women Track & Field Team competed in the Queen of the Shot Put competition.

  The Queen of the Quarter and Shot Put competition gives Northside athletes an appreciation for each others events, and makes the TEAM stronger. 

 The distance runners also benefited from the 400m Time Trial, by learning their maximum quarter speed. With the knowledge of their maximum quarter speed, the coaching staff is able to provide proper racing strategy for the 800m run. 

 Medals were awarded to the TOP THREE Seniors, Juniors, Sophomores, and Freshman in the 400m Dash and Shot Put. 

 In 2015, only one athlete broke the seventy seconds barrier at the Queen of the Quarter competition. 

 Northside Sophomore Fiona Casey won the Queen of the Quarter competition with an outstanding time of 68.81. Fiona Casey was awarded a Medal for winning the 2015 Queen of the Quarter competition.
