Off-Season Updates - 5-5-22
-The BHS T&F programs are building momentum for a big finish in the upcoming weeks! This season has seen many great performances including several regional qualifying times and a new 1600m school record!
-Also, after a COVID induced hiatus, this season has seen the return of the Brighton Bulldog Invitational. Hosting a meet this size is a major undertaking and would not be possible without our parent and athlete volunteers. The coaches can't thank everyone enough for all the work they put in during the event! BHS T&F is hosting our final meet of the season this upcoming Tuesday and we are still looking for help covering the field events (great way for alumni to give back to the program). Interested volunteers can sign up here.
-Members of BXC will stop by Scranton Middle School to meet with incoming 9th grade runners during their lunch period. Tentative date is Wednesday, May 25th.
-The BXC Summer Calendar has been updated.
-Now is a great time to set appointments for athlete physicals for the 22/23 school year. All athletes must have a physical on file before official practices begin in August.
-In addition to physicals, now is also a great time to schedule an end of season iron level check. Over the years multiple BXC athletes have put in months of sustained training but were unable to but were unable to perform up to their expectations due to low iron levels. What is Ferritin by Dr. Kornoelje explains the importance of iron, the nuance of low ferritin levels, and a plan for checking and treating iron related issues. All BXC runners that have put in months of consistent/quality training should strongly consider getting their ferritin levels checked if they haven't been tested in the last 4-6 months.
-Good luck to all BXC athletes on competing on the track, diamond, and field!
