A few important end-of-season announcements:
1. The Spartans returned home with a 7th place team finish at the 2019 state track and field meet, scoring 36 points. This was their 7th top 8 finish as a team in the last 7 years. The Spartans had runner-up finishes from Sara Hoskins (High Jump) and the sprint medley relay (Carli Spelhaug, Morgan Ramirez, Adrea Arthofer, Harmony Creasy). They placed 3rd in the 4 x 100m relay (Spelhaug, Ramirez, Emily Wood, Arthofer) and the 4 x 200m relay (Spelhaug, Arthofer, Ramirez, and Harmony Creasy). Carli Spelhaug placed 4th in the long jump, Ilah Perez-Johnson placed 7th in the shot put, and the 4 x 400m relay (E. Wood, Arthofer, Sophie Curtis, and Creasy) placed 8th. Congratulations to all who represented the Spartans at the 2019 state meet. We are proud of all of you for your efforts this past weekend!
2. Come out to celebrate our seniors and our team at our season-ending dessert and awards reception on Tuesday, May 21st, beginning at 4:30 p.m. We encourage families to bring a dessert or beverage to share. We have a lot to recognize and a chance to hear some final words from our senior class as they move forward in their journey. The reception will be in the PVHS cafeteria and theater this year.
3. Please be ready to turn in your uniform and warm-ups either on Friday, May 3rd or Monday, May 6th. If possible, please place your belongings in a plastic bag with your name on it and one of the coaches will collect it. A $50 fine will be incurred for each missing item.
