Northside Women's Track & Field Team BREAKS SCHOOL RECORD at Registration meeting! 42 Girls will try-out for the TEAM!

 On Tuesday, January 12, 2016, the entire Northside Caferteria was filled to capacity at the Northside Track & Field Registration meeting. There was standing room only in the cafeteria. Potential members of Boys and Girls Track Team stood in the aisles of the cafeteria, as a motivational TEAM meeting took place.

 Last year (2015), Northside had 25 athletes on the Women's Track & Field Team.

 In 2016, 42 girls registered for try-outs to break the first SCHOOL RECORD of the season! The largest Women's Track Team in Northside history! Track & Field is now the most popular sport at Northside. 

 Northside will be in desperate need of a sponsor to purchase additional uniforms for the 2016 Track & Field TEAM. If we don't have enough uniforms, cuts will be made based on attendance at practices.

 The entire Northside College Prep Track and Field Team will have a 400m Time Trial and have the opportunity to throw the Shot Put on Saturday, January 23, 2016 from 8:00 am - 10:00 am at North Park University Indoor Track & Field Stadium.

 The Time Trial is MANDATORY. All Athletes must be able to finish a 400m Time Trial to be on the TEAM. Athletes will also get the opportunity to throw the Shot Put. Uniforms will NOT be issued to any athletes that miss the Time Trial for any reason.Thanks.

 The Time Trial will help determine our initial Varsity, Junior Varsity, Sophomore, and Freshman 4x400m Relay Teams.

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

 The distance runners also benefit 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.

 Athletes will meet at the MAIN ENTRANCE of Northside College Prep at 7:45 am before going to the Indoor Stadium at North Park University. The Indoor Stadium is located on the corner of Kedzie and Carmen ave. Thanks.

 A public address announcer will introduce the contestants and announce the results of each 400m heat. There will also be a Starter with a starter's pistol and official timers for all of the 400m heats.

 TEAM Schedules for the 2016 season are available under "Student of the Sport".
