Game Time Change for Thursday at New Diana

Due to New Diana having to make up a high school game at New Diana on Thursday, the times for our Middle School Boys games at New Diana on Thursday, Jan. 18 have changed.  The following will now be the revised times and order of play:

4:00             7th & 8th Combined “B” Game
4:30              7A Game
5:30               8A Game

Inclement Weather

In the case of inclement weather on Tuesday or Wednesday, basketball practice will be determined by the status of school each day.  If we have school, we will have practice at 7:00 am.  If school is cancelled, there will be no practice that day.

Track Information

Though we still have several weeks remaining in our basketball season, I wanted to go ahead and post some information relative to our track season.  I will be posting the track schedule as soon as I receive it from Coach Burks.

*Each track athlete will need to supply their own WHITE compression shorts to be worn in meets.  They must be white in order to meet the uniform standard required in track.

*We have quite a few track spikes but athletes may provide their own spikes if they choose.  We do not have many “flats” or running shoes for workouts or distance runners so we encourage each athlete to supply their own.  All athletes will also need these for offseason after track season is complete.

*Track practice will begin at 7:45 am each morning and we will also practice after school until roughly 4:45-5:00 unless informed otherwise.

*Athletes are required to travel to and from track meets with the team unless approval to leave early has been granted in advance.  Please give me at least 1 day notice if there is a reason you need to have your son leave the meet early or not ride the bus home from the meet.

*With the construction of our new fieldhouse underway, we will not host a track meet this year.  In the past, we have been able to enter an “A” and “B” team in our own meet.  However, we may not be able to enter a “B” team in meets we do not host.  Track events are limited to 3 participants per school with each athlete being allowed to compete in up to 5 events.

*For most meets, we leave before school is out and the meets do not conclude until anywhere from 8:00 – 10:00 pm depending on the number of teams entered in the meet.  For this reason, it is suggested that athletes either bring money for the concession stand or food from home to eat at the meet.  

*Athletes will be notified of the events they will be participating in at least 1 day prior to the meet.  I will post the order of events for each meet and my best estimate for when that event will start so that parents will have an idea of what time their son competes.  However, these times are only estimates so I would suggest arriving at least 20-30 minutes before the estimated time in order to not miss the event.  

*I will post additional information as we get closer to track season.
