On Friday May 2nd and Saturday May 3rd, your Benedictine Track & Field team will be hosting the NACC conference championships. This is especially exciting since our biggest meet of the season will be at home this year. That means more chances for you to come out and support! Things kick-off on Friday around 10:30 A.M. with most preliminaries on the track, but you can also see some exciting races like the steeplechase ( my favorite and what I’ll be racing) and the 10k. Saturday is when the rest of the events go off such as the 5k, 1500, and finals for the 800, sprints, and hurdles. Another great reason to come out is our amazing throwers, who do extremely well in conference every year and medal in many areas. You can also come watch Billy Sipek do the high-jump, especially since he went to Nationals and was named an All-American for indoor conference (no big deal). We also have many other athletes looking to place in conference for their events who need your cheering. In case you haven’t heard, our men’s team has won the conference championships two years in a row now, and they’re going for a third this year so your support is extremely important. You can even watch baseball and track at the same time from the top of the stadium :). All in all, we’ve been working our butts off since January and now it’s finally time to prove that all of it has paid off. So wish your Eagles luck and come out to cheer!
