Indoor Track Update - BYU Invite

Darts -
The indoor season is finally under way. It was a long two days at the BYU Invitational, but it was worth it. I was pleased with our efforts and with our enthusiasm and TEAMwork. There are definitely some things we can work on, but overall we were pleased with what we saw in our first meet of the season. It is going to take me a while to type all of the results from this weekend at BYU. We had a record setting 105 athletes participate in the meet. We were double the size of the next biggest team. The full results can be found at I will list our TEAM's results later in the email.
The first meets really are practice and it is important that we learn from them. I thought of a few things we need to work on:
1) Race preparation - many of you did not prepare yourselves well in the days before the race. You were not getting the sleep you needed and some of you may not have been eating right. I also noticed that quite a few of you missed practice on Thursday and/or Friday. Friday's practice before a meet is not a very hard practice, but it is an essential practice if you want to be ready and prepared to race your best on Saturday. The "fine tuning" we do on Friday really will help you on Saturday. Many of you were also not as prepared as you could have been to compete on Saturday. The meets can be really long. You want to make sure that you bring food and drink. You also might want to bring some things to do. The more prepared you are for the race, the more confident you will be at the starting line.
2) Spikes - I will not be able to provide new spike replacements for everyone each time we have a new meet. If a different size spike is required for the next track, I don't mind providing you with the new size, but make sure that you keep the ones you got last Saturday as well so you can put them back in and use them at a later time (if the replacements you got were new).
3) One thing I learned from the meet was that some of you are in the place you want to be at this point, but for the most part, we did not perform to our potential and many of you were probably left unsatisfied. You will find that track is full of ups and downs. That you are going to face challenges. Some of you have been hurt, some have been sick, some have had to miss practices for various reasons, and some of you are just not as fit as you want to be (even if you have worked hard). My encouragement for you would be to not give up on yourselves or on the TEAM. You may have to work extra hard and take really good care of yourself this season to get your goals. It doesn't matter what level you are at, you all have a desire to improve and be faster or stronger. I would encourage you to be patient and to realize that this was our first meet. We don't expect you to be your very best yet, but we expect you to work toward that. I like what I saw the last two days, but I also know that some of you are disappointed in the performances. Stay positive and really work together, and we will become stronger and stronger as a TEAM. And as a result you will get stronger and stronger as an individual.
Let's put some good work in over the next few weeks and I promise you will eventually begin to see some improvement. I am excited to be starting the track class, and I think that it will help many of you to start feeling a little more prepared.

Coming up:
Monday, Jan 18 - No practice. Distance runners should go out for 40-60 minutes at a good, steady pace. It should be a fairly hard run.
Tuesday, Jan 19 - Practice for everyone at 1:00 pm at the school. There is a good possibility that the distance runners will go down to the oval for some intervals, so bring $5 and spread the word. If you are unable to go down to the oval, I will give you a workout to do from the school.
Wednesday, Jan 20 - First day of track class (4th period) - meet in the small gym. We will go over some important items, hopefully hand out lockers to those in need, and we will have a workout, so bring your clothes.
Thursday, Jan 21 - We will be having an important meeting in the cafeteria where we will be discussing the Simplot trip.
Friday - Saturday, Jan 22-23 - Weber State Indoor Meet. I will hand out information about the meet on Wednesday. We do not neet to pre-register. Registration will be done at the meet.

Alumni News -
Many Davis athletes competed at the Bengal Shootout in Pocatello this past weekend. They did us proud. I will probably miss some - but here is what I saw: Kristen Billings (WSU) was 1st in the 60m dash (7.73) and 9th in the 200m. Ashlee Cannon was 7th in the 60m dash, 1st in the 60m hurdles (8.68), and 5th in the 200m. Camille Lott (WSU) was 2nd in the 400m (57.66) and probably on the 2nd place relay team. Shaun Webb (WSU) was 16th in the 60m hurdles and 10th in the 400m. Jace Nye (WSU) was 1st in the 800m (1:54). Max Lennardt (WSU) was 8th in the 800m (1:59). Loren Storey (WSU) was 8th in the mile (5:08). Josh Adams (BYU) was 4th in the mile (4:21). Natalie Haws (WSU) was 6th in the 3000m. Chris Burnett (WSU) was 3rd in the 3000m. Stephen Pierce competed for USU in the pole vault. Jon Ferguson (BYU) was 17th in the long jump (but did jump 23'08 2 weeks ago to win the BYU intersquad meet). Spencer Hall (USU) was 3rd in the shot put and 2nd in the weight throw. Shannon Prince (USU) was 4th in the shot put and 8th in the weight throw. A few other former Darts are competing at that level but missed the meet for illness or injury.
