TNHSXC Summer Update

Good evening TNHS  family.  Hope everyone is enjoying their summers.  We're about to enter the KHSAA Dead Period and a hiatus from "organized" running and communication between coaches and athletes and parents.  

Kudos to those kids that have been coming out and putting in the work the last few weeks.  Summer running is key to success in October.  Marcus, Isaac, Lane, Ethan, Zack, Sierra, Devan and Jensen have at least been seen training and I'm super appreciative of their commitment.  The rest of you?  Hope you're running.  If not, get off the couch!

To demonstrate just how special this team's potential is, I've pasted a screenshot of the all-time XC leaderboards.  Notice all of the athletes highlighted in yellow are potential returners.  This is not even taking into account new recruits, improving JV runners or our middle schoolers moving up.  This can be a spectacular season, but it will take all of you!

Again, the training schedule is attached, but don't let the specificity of "workouts" sway you.  As a default, always just build base by running easy miles, building up slowly in duration.  

KHSAA Dead Period June 24 - July 9

July 8, Nelson Co. 4H AgDays 5k - See images of flyers attached.  I'll be helping out with timing, but you can come and run without violating dead period rules.  Please come out and support this great organization.

Running Camp - July 10-14, 9-Noon daily
The XC programs of Thomas Nelson, Nelson County, Bardstown and Bethlehem are proud to bring this opportunity to the young people of our area. Camp sessions are from 9-12:00, July 10th - 14th. Cost per camper is $35 payable upon arrival at orientation. With further questions contact matt.hoyes@nelson.kyschools or josh.hartlage@bardstown.kyschools.

The following two links are living documents that outline our entire XC season of training and racing.  Don't wait til tomorrow.  Run today.  And tomorrow!

Enjoy your next two weeks.  I'll see you'all at Camp.

TNHS Track 4/1 update

Good evening TNHS Track family.  Lots of events during this crunched end of season. The reason it feels like this season was so short, is that it was so short.  Our State meet is a week earlier, but the start date wasn't any earlier and there were a number of cancellations. Now we're looking at three meets in a week and a half heading into Region.

First, some pics from Maggie's signing last week.   We're all so excited for Maggie and her opportunity to run at the next level.  She will be a tremendous compliment to CU's team, and they are so lucky to have her. We're all super proud of you Maggie.

Tomorrow, Lincoln Trail Conference Championships @ North Hardin HS
5:00 Coaches meeting, 5:30 field, 5:30 running.  Lineup Sheet. 
North Hardin is located in Radcliff KY, at it takes about 35-40 minutes to get there.  Take 313 Joe Prather Hwy off of 65.  Everyone should be on site by 4:45.

Thursday, Bardstown Invitational @ B'town HS
5:15 field, 5:30 running.  Every athlete will be competing.  Lineups out Wednesday. 

Next Tuesday 5/9, Region 2 Class 2A Championships @ Bardstown

It's a busy time of year!  The kids' performances have been improving steadily through their packed competition schedule.  Here's to running, jumping and throwing our season bests right on time.

TNHS Track 4/15Update

Good evening track folks.   I want to start by offering my congratulations to Alexis Malone and her family, as Alexis signed today to run track for Aurora University.  It's a fantastic opportunity for her, and she is very deserving.  Below are the pics from the event.  

Saturday, 4/15/17 Tates Creek Commodore Classic Invitational, info sheet, heat sheets and competitor #'s attached  
Our team will be a little lean due to the AP study sessions going on Saturday, but I'm excited for a good day of competition at a new meet for our program.

Next Wednesday, 4/19/17 Bullitt East All-comers, 5:30 field, 5:45 running events
Every team member will be competing.

TNHStrack 3/2 update

Good morning TNHStrack family.   The season hasn't even begun, and we have so much to celebrate!

Student Athletes of the Month - Congrats to three of our athletes for earning this prestigious honor.  I have an overwhelmingly large number of deserving nominees, but January and February went to Maggie and Alexis and they both won!  Football nominated Chase, but we will still claim him ;)

Tonight - Spring Sports Showcase -  4:00-7:00 pm.  We will meet in the fieldhouse right after school.  From there, team members will get in uniform and go to the gym for our "all sports" picture at 4:00 followed by our team pictures  at 4:40.  Parents need to be in attendance from 6:00-7:00 in the cafeteria.  This program will gather all stakeholders from spring sports and will be led by our Athletic Directors.

Paperwork - many athletes have already returned their completed packets and I am updating our roster today.  Remember, AFTER TODAY - NO PAPERWORK MEANS AN ATHLETE IS INELIGIBLE TO TRAIN!  We have them in the Track office and here in the building if someone needs a replacement.  

Spiritwear and uniforms - attached you will find our new Spiritwear order form from Apparel and Awards.  If an athlete is issued a new uniform, then they will owe $23.  That payment should be made out to Apparel and Awards and can be included with your order of other team gear.

We're off to a great start, and our kids have already demonstrated tremendous drive and growth mindset.

Please remember our schedule has been updated -

Pre-season email

Good afternoon TNHSXC and Track families.  To many of you, these groups are one and the same.  But, I realize that many of you have been tolerating my XC emails awaiting the start of Track season, and some of you will be ignoring Track emails until XC starts back up this summer.  

This email should serve as the transition between the two seasons as we have the first few important dates of 2017 already upon us - 

Tomorrow, Thursday 1/19 - Track and Field informational meeting in B113 Hoyes's room, 3:15-3:45 (we will then go to the gym to run some stairs for anyone that's interested)

Friday, 1/20 - XC/Track team Pizza Party/Open Gym Time, 8:00-10:00
All 2016-17 All XC/Track athletes (including XC middle schoolers) are welcome to join us for junky food, music and the fun in the gym.  

Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays - Track Conditioning 3:30-5:00
Starting next week.  Most of our work in this time won't be really event specific.  Practicing every day will begin in mid-February.  

The season's competitive schedule is being finalized and will be going home with kids tomorrow, and it will be emailed and posted on the blog.  We are looking forward to another fantastic season of continued growth - look for more from me soon.

Region Pics and Results

Crazy proud of our TNHSXC family.  Boys continue their tradition sending runners to State all five years we've been in existence.  Been a bumpy season, but at least I get everyone of them back! They 5th in an incredibly tight race (only 14 points away from not qualifying and 13 points away from Region Runner-up! One point out of 4th, four points from 3rd). My girls ran tough - Faith battling back from mono, and Maggie ran her best race ever missing by one spot. Bittersweet moments with my three senior girls. I love you all. And, proud dad moment - my 7th grade son Lane pr'd and is going to State!!!  

Keep the pics coming in, and be on the lookout for State Meet info throughout this week.
