Live Track and Field Blog: NCS Meet of Champions

We will be doing an old-school style live blog for track and field starting around 10:45 to 11 a.m. I will filter the results of the field events as they stroll in this morning and then I will do play-by-play as best as I possibly can for the running events, which begin at 1:30 p.m. Although, play-by-play of the 100-meter sprints might be a bit tough! Anyway, the most current update will be just below this post. As always, comment or ask questions below. If you want me to find out about how an athlete did, please put the name, school and event at the bottom and I will do my best to hunt it down.

Schedule for today’s finals:

10 a.m. – Girls Discus; 10:15 – Girls High Jump; 11:30 – Boys Long Jump; 12:45 p.m. – Boys Pole Vault; 2 – Girls Long Jump; 2:15 – Boys Shot Put; 1:30 – Boys 400 relay; 1:38 – Girls 400 relay; 1:47 – Boys 1600; 1:58 – Girls 1600; 2:10 – Boys 110 Hurdles; 2:17 – Girls 100 hurdles; 2:25 – Boys 400; 2:32 – Girls 400; 2:39 – Boys 100; 2:45 – Girls 100; 2:52 – Boys 800; 2:59 – Girls 800; 3:08 – Boys 300 hurdles; 3:15 – Girls 300 hurdles; 3:23 – Boys 200; 3:30 – Girls 200; 3:38 – Boys 3,200; 3:55 – Girls 3,200; 4:10 – Boys 1,600 relay; 4:20 – Girls 1,600 relay

Live North Coast Section championship coverage

Hey folks, we’re at it again. I’ll be at the Amador Valley-De La Salle baseball game at 5 p.m. and my Twitter updates will go straight to here. I’ll try to get Michael Bower to provide some news and notes via Twitter from the NCS Bay Shore track meet at Castro Valley and I’ll see if we can get some others to provide updates. I know Chace Bryson will be at Arroyo-Clayton Valley baseball. A reminder again that we’ll only be firing Twitter updates into here for your convenience and nobody will be available to approve or answer questions.
