Warrior Track & Field


Schedule:        Varsity/JV

Roster:             Varsity/JV


2023 news from Coach Vanderhoof


We expect our athletes to be at practice every day unless they are excused due to illness, another school event conflict (ie. math meet, robotics, etc.), an appointment that couldn't be rescheduled, etc. It is important that they are at practice every day so they can continue to improve but also to support their teammates that are at practice every day.


Here is a link to our meet Schedule. We are hosting a home meet this year as well as LITs at WLC. Help will be needed to make sure both run smoothly. Expect to see more information in the future.

Track Meets:

Our varsity meets have a limited number of entries we are allowed, so many of the invitationals will have a smaller group of athletes competing. The kids will find out a few days prior to the meet if they are competing and in what events. Conference Dual meets are for both JV and Varsity. There is still a limit to the number of varsity entries we are allowed, but JV entries are unlimited, so everyone will compete.

We train many of our athletes to be able to compete in multiple events and it is likely they will not always be entered in the same events from one meet to the next. Athletes can also be entered as a Varsity athlete in one event and a JV athlete in another.

Track meets are varied. If you ever wonder when your child will actually compete, this gives you a starting point. High school Track Meet Order of Events. Keep in mind, actual times vary based on the number of schools, the number of heats, etc. Not every meet follows this schedule, but a majority of them do.

Athletes are expected to stay until the end of every meet to cheer on their teammates, even if their events are done. One of my best parts of the meet is when all of our 100+ athletes are on the final curve cheering for their teammates during the 4x400.
Meet Scoring:

An invitational meet is scored the following way:
Team scoring will be based on the following point structure, with the top 8 places scored: 10, 8, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 to indicate points from first through eighth place. Each male and female division will be scored separately.
Conference Dual meets are scored 5-3-1 for first through third place. Winning relay teams earn 5 points, no other place scores points.

Bus to and from Lakeside:

We will bus athletes to every meet during the week (weekends are dependent on a few factors). Parents are required to sign their child out before the meet is over if they are not riding the bus back to Lakeside. A Google Form is sent a day or two before every meet and is the easiest way to sign out your child.

Coaching Staff:

Justin Vanderhoof - Co-head coach - High Jump (He handles a majority of the communication. You can certainly reach out to the other coaches, but he is the first/main point of contact.)
Nate Sievert - Co-head coach - sprints and relays
Dave Reinke - Throws
Michelle Hemling - Hurdles
Matt Ziegler - Horizontal jumps and relays
Cameron Ausen - Distance
