Good Night Marshall, Spring Track and Field Family. Hope this message reaches you well and everyone had a great spring break.


Everyone wishing to compete on Tuesday, April 11th - need to be at practice on Monday, April 10th. Reminder - only coaches can submit the entries for the meet to me (Head Coach Wong)


Reminder of the changes:

*Only your event coaches will be submitting entries for the meet to me. I will not be accepting any entries directly from athletes anymore. Coaches will need to submit to me their attendance sheet with their entries.

*Coaches will be making their selections based on who are at practice before the deadlines. If, you are at practice for any reason including excused absences - it will be the coach's decision if you can compete that week.

*I have modified the meet schedule to include when you need to have the online form completed before the entries are due for the upcoming meets - April 15th - Bullis Meet is cancelled.

*If, you do not update the form - you will not be entered into the meet.

*The form below is for the rest of the season. So, everyone need to complete it again.

UPDATED!!! Spring T&F 2023 Meet Availability

*If, you are entered into the meet and you do not show up and compete - you automatically miss the next meet. If, you are entered in a meet and tell me at last minute you cannot make the meet for schedule events such school events, vacations, or planned activities - you will miss the next two meets.

*If, it is an emergency or something last minute and requires an athlete to miss meetings - the parents should be contacting me. There are things adults (coaches and parents) can speak to that would shield the athletes from damaging relationship.

*I will do my best to publish entries in Schoology for the athletes to review, it is their responsibilities to review the entries completely to ensure they are entered into the meet or should not be entered into the meet. Do not go by what your friends and teammates tell you and read through the whole document - not just the parts you are interested in.

*The weekdays meets are a little bit more flexible but it still have restrictions. Weekend meets (Invitationals - have deadlines from a week in advance to a month).

*Commitment for the championships needs to submit by May 5th - we will not ask if you are available, we require you to be all in for all the District, Regional and State championships.

Good Night Marshall, Spring Track and Field Family. Hope this message reaches you well.

It has been a busy start of the season, and everyone was giving the opportunity to compete, in the next few week - we will be competing at a few more competitive invitationals on the weekends. It will really help us prepare for the championship season.

To prepare for the rest of the season, we are making a few changes to how entries are done and enforcing some team rules. These changes are necessary to allow me to process the entries better and more efficiently for over 150 athletes. Last week - it took me over 3 days to process entries for a meet - that is not effective and take away from me working on other items for the team.

Here are the changes:
*Only your event coaches will be submitting entries for the meet to me. I will not be accepting any entries directly from athletes anymore. Coaches will need to submit to me their attendance sheet with their entries.

*Coaches will be making their selections based on who are at practice before the deadlines. If, you are at practice for any reason including excused absences - it will be the coach's decision if you can compete that week.

*I have modified the meet schedule to include when you need to have the online form completed before the entries are due for the upcoming meets.

*If, you do not update the form - you will not be entered into the meet.

*The form below is for the rest of the season. So, everyone need to complete it again.

Marshall Spring Track and Field - Update - 3/12/23

Good Night Everyone.  Hope you had a great weekend. Thank you to all the parents who came out to the Meet the Coaches Night, and everyone who supported the team Night at Road Runners.

Congratulations to everyone who competed at New Balance National Championship in Boston – proud of all of you and thanks for the great season.

Now that Indoor track and field is complete – the spring season competitions begin this Wednesday, March 15th at Washington-Liberty HS with our first District Meet.  As we mentioned in the Meet the Coach Night – the events will be split in half – so we have A & B meet each week. This week – it is an A meet (see the attached format for the events – that will be contested this week).

Everyone needs to fill out this form to let us know if you are available for the meet – this is the only way we will enter you into the meet.  Everyone is eligible to compete all meets – we will select the event and if you will be allowed.  We will select for the meet based on attendance, then the form – invitationals will be based on performance, and then the form.

Here is the form - https://forms.office.com/r/F672Y29iud               

Note – we have added a Freshman/Sophomore meet on May 25th – parents will have to get their athletes to the meet – there is no bus.

April 15th and May 6th – we have two meets on those days. You will only get to attend one even if you select to – but you can make a note at the bottom of your preference.

We will be issuing uniforms for athletes who are new to track and field everyone else should already have a uniform from the previous season or winter track and field.  We will issue uniforms on Monday and Wednesday.

The weather is calling for 51 on Wednesday – it will probably be in the 40s by the end of the meet and night. So, athletes need to have warm clothing – I would recommend wearing long tights under your uniform singlet and long tights for your bottom.

We need all athletes to bring warm clothing for practices every day – sweats pants, sweatshirts, long sleeves – you can have shorts and a t-shirt under just in case the weather is better and you take off your long clothing.  Hats and gloves should be in your bags. Everyone needs to bring their spikes to all practices. If, we feel it is cold and athletes do not have warm clothing – we will send them home and it will count as an unexcused absence. My rule – is better to have it and don’t need it than need it and don’t have it.

The spirit pack online store will be opening this week – it will only be open for 7 to 10 days at max – so get in there and order your items.  Remember parents you can order stuff for yourself too.

Once again, we are doing our letter campaign – we have to pay for all the invitational meets and we still need to purchase hurdles, and blocks and add more uniforms.  So, please support the fundraiser – at a minimum please share it on your social media and with your friends and family. Remember all funds donated to the Boosters and school is 100% Tax Deductible.  Here is the link - https://org.eteamsponsor.com/ETS/supportUs/506520763   Thank you in advance.

Communication

  • There are 3 primary ways I will communicate with the team.

    1. Team website – www.gcmtrackandfield.com

    2. Schoology Group - https://lms.fcps.edu/group/2923856607 (access code 73CW-HB83-DSDCV) - This is mainly for students.

    3. Twitter - https://twitter.com/gcmtrack

      • It usually will tell you to check the website and Schoology for more detail message. The information is limited.

    4. My goal is to have a weekly Sunday message.

      • You can imagine – I’m sending lots of email – so sometimes yahoo will block it.

      • Please add headcoachwong@yahoo.com to your contact

      • If, the message get blocked – I will post a pdf of the message on the website.

      • This message is only going to parents, you can share a copy with the athlete. There will be a copy in Schoology too.

    5. If, you not sure able any team info – you can always email, call or text me – anytime.


  • Practice preparation

    • I do not cut athletes however missing practices is the main way to be off the team – we take attendance daily.

    • Very important that the athletes are dress for the weather – March can be unpredictable.

      • Necessary

        • Hats, gloves, long pants, long sleeves shirts

        • Sweatpants, sweat top/jacket

        • Leggings, bring a winter coat – you can use to stay warm between reps

        • Layers might be needed especially for the 530pm practices

        • If, we get lucky like we did last week – you can reduce your layers

        • My rule is – better to take off layers than need it and don’t have it to put on.

        • Anyone not dressed properly might be sent home – it is for their health and safety.

    • Drink enough water - the body need to be hydrated.

    • Have snacks or food that you can eat between lunch and practice time.

    • If, the weather is so bad – we will try and find alternative small spaces indoors

    • If, we cannot secure any spaces indoors – we will cancel practices via Twitter, website, Schoology and school announcements.


Marshall Spring Track and Field - Update - 2/26/23

Hello All. Welcome to the 2nd week of spring track and field season.
I apologize to everyone still on the list - I will have a final list by next time and remove any parents whose student-athletes are not doing spring track and field.

1. This week - we really will be getting more track and field training beginning with the time trials on Monday (27th and 28th) at 3:15 PM. All athletes including shot putters will be taking the Time Trials. Distance athletes will take the 1600m and every one the 150m. Tuesday - we will do 800m and 300m - reminder everyone has to do at least one of the time trials to be part of the team. If you have competition spikes - you can use them for the time trials. I will bring some in our storage for others to borrow and use (get your own at team night on the 7th). Also, you can run in shorts for the time trials - you still need your long stuff for your warm always (even if it is 90 degrees - at least for sprinters).

If you are not on the Activities compliance list - you will not be allowed to take the time trials. We have 2 days if you miss Tuesday time trials - you will not be part of the spring track and field team this year. Athletes preparing for New Balance Nationals are exempt from the time trials as they are preparing for the championship.

2. This week the Students have a 2-hour release on Thursday (3/2) and No school on Friday (3/3). Please pay attention to the practice schedule on those days. My goal is to publish the practice schedule weekly - so the athletes know where to be for practice. A complete practice schedule for this week is attached.

3. Time trials for sprinters will allow us to drive the largest group of athletes in better practice time. Afternoon sprinters with Coach Cintorino (usually goes early right after and considered development athletes for training). Night Sprinters with Coach Wong (are athletes who will be expected to be part of the championship team). That does not mean afternoon sprinters will not be given the opportunity to earn a spot in the championship. For the time trials - to make the Night sprints - you need to run sub (B) 19/22 (G) in the 150m and sub (B) 41/49 (G) in the 300m. The night sprints are optional but recommended for a higher level of training but if athletes cannot make the practice time will be probably 530PM/6:00 PM on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. They can always go to Afternoon sprint practice.

4. Jumpers/Hurdlers are sprinters too - when they do not have practice - you are expected to attend sprint practices - there is no event in track and field that does not requires movements including throwing.

5. Important Updates. Team Night is Tuesday, March 7th - not Tuesday, March 2nd as previously indicated. Please take a look at the updated Spring Packet for some changes.

6. Important Dates

*Time Trials - Monday, Feb. 27th & 28th - 3:15PM

*Winter Awards Night - Monday, March 6th - 6:30 PM.

*Road Runner Team Night Fundraiser - Tuesday, March 7th - 6 PM - 8 PM - See attached flyer.

*Spring Sports Picture Day - Wednesday, March 8th - 4 PM - we will have a quick practice before pictures

*Meet the Coach Night - Wednesday, March 8th - 6:30 PM - All athletes are expected to have at least one parent representative at the meeting.

7. Communication is very important - I will only use this mailing list to send Sunday messages - please follow Twitter - https://twitter.com/gcmtrack, and Schoology - https://lms.fcps.edu/group/2923856607 (Access Code 73CW-HB83-DSDCV), updates will be posted to http://www.gcmtrackandfield.com

8. Please contact me with any questions.

Marshall T&F - Regional Championship Summary - Spoden & Oliver wins Regional Crown

Regional Championship Summary

When you have the heart of a champion nothing can stop you from achieving greatness - Senior Haley Spoden and Seth Oliver are the true definition of champions who will not be denied greatness.

Like in the spring of last year, Spoden jumped into the 3200m for fun and when it was over - she was the Northern Regional champion in the event. This year it was repeated as she lead wire to wire to claim the title in a new personal best and state qualifier.

Oliver started off the season winning the 3200m and would go undefeated the rest of the season including winning the Liberty District title in runway fashion. The regional championship race was not going to be another running away with a quality field. Running with the top 3 for most of the race and going into the final lap - the Yorktown running threatened to end his streak. However, with 100 meters to go, Seth saw daylight and decide today wasn't the day he was going to lose. Letting off a final big kick, Oliver would catch the Yorktown runner at the line and keep his streak intact.

Senior Sean Sanders only had one record left to chase and this meet would be his best shot to get it. The 1000m record was tough because it is usually run after the 1600m run - but this time - Sanders would run it fresh, leading for most of the race. The goal was right there to be achieved. With two laps to go he was joined by a runner by Oakton and the chase as on, with a final push, Sanders had done it, broke the final indoor record he wanted to get. Now he is the owner of school records in the 4x800m, 800m, 1000m, and 1600m to go along with his outdoors 4x800m and 1600m records. I'm sure he will be going after the outdoor 800m records too in the spring.

Senior Alexander Oliver's hard work put him in place to have choices when it came to the regional championship - he could run the 4x200m, 500m, 300m, and 4x400m. He anchored the 4x200m to an automatic qualifier in the first meet to the State championship - so he didn't need to run that event, the 300m was going to be hard on a flat track and the 4x400m was at the end. But being the leader that he is - AJ choose the harder event and decided to put his heart all into it. Running his fast section - he found himself with the lead with a lap to go and still running smooth. He held his composure and finish strong to the line and when it was over - he had run the 3rd fastest time in school history, better his personal best by over 1 second, and qualified for the state championship.

Senior Christos Proctor seems to never have it easy and everything he wanted it required a fight and battle. He broke the school record earlier in the 55m dash at his first meet at PG Sportplex and here was again need another performance closer to that to qualify for the State championship. Qualification did not go as planned, Proctor came in the meet ranked 2nd and was the last qualifier into the finals in 8th and forgotten man on the outside and nursed a little pain in his leg. Speaking to the coach and his dad - all he was asked to was execute just once and then he can get rest and get healthy for the state championship. Like a champion and Christos pushed out the blocks in the lonely outside lane and sped to the lead and kept pushing when the results were posted he had taken 3rd and was close to his school record performance (6.70 to 6.67).

The 4x800m relay team easily won the District title and the only thing left for them to was secure their automatic qualifier for the state championship but missed it by 0.12 (8:15.61 to 8:15.73). So, the mission was moved to the Regional championship and the team was in the fight from start to finish. Seth Oliver lead off the season and put right in the thick of things, the battle would continue with Senior Luke Hanzlik ran hard and kept the fight going, Senior Nawfal Elwannas kept the team pushing and on target and Senior Sean Sanders would take to the anchor with the goal within reach. Sanders would close out the relay and this time they better the qualifier by over 4 seconds for the State championship.

Junior Adrianna Haggerty Graham has been doing double duty as the manager on the 19 -3 men's basketball team while being one of the best shot putters in the region. She lived up to the hype putting together a great series of throws to set a personal best and placed her highest finish in the regional champ just missing the state champs by one spot.

Senior Graham Peterson, Veronica Curran, and Gavin Sandall probably competed in his last indoor meet as Statesmen - thank you for your leadership, dedication, and commitment.

Congratulations to these athletes competing at the State Championship - on Feb. 24th and Feb. 25th in Virginia Beach, VA. Only these athletes will continue to practice next week.

Statesmen in the running for Liberty District Championship title.

The 2022- 2023 Liberty District Championship will be held at Prince George's Sports and Learning complex along with the Concorde District on Thursday, February 2nd, and Friday, February 3rd. Based on the seeding performances going into the meet, the Marshall Statesmen is in the running along with Washington-Liberty HS to win the Boy's team title.

The Statemen will be led by a Quartet of Seniors mainly on the track in the distance and sprint discipline.

Senior Sean Sanders is ranked #1 in all three of his races with the fastest time in the 1600m and 1000m and is a member of the 4x800m relay team. Fellow distance runner and Senior Seth Oliver is #1 in two (3200m, 4x800m) of three races with 2nd only to his teammate in the 1600m.

Senior Christos Proctor returns to the track where he set a school record in the 55m dash (6.67) and is ranked #2 in the event and a member of the #1 ranked 4x200m school record team. Senior Alexander Oliver (not related to Seth) will look to pull off another District title as he is entered in the 300m and 500m and 4x400m relay.

With all the action on the track, the title might actually come down to Senior Graham Peterson moving up in the Boy's Shot put as Washington-Liberty currently outscoring the Statesmen 52 - 2 in the field events. It really going to take a team effort to win the title, scoring one point here and another point there by athletes such as Senior Gavin Sandall (300m, 500m), Junior Krish Bhalla (55m, 300m), Junior Simon Barnes (3200m) or Senior Nawfal Elwannas (1000m).

On the women's side, Senior Haley Spoden is posed to have a great championship to close out her District career with some historical performances in the last few weeks. She had moved up the rankings in the 1600m, Mile, and 1000m and put the 4x800m relay team to win the event. Freshman Samantha Dabich looking to be the next rising star based on her top 6 ranking in the 500m and 1000m and Sophomore Amelia Shoemaker has been tearing up the track in the last few weeks in the 3200m and 1600m.

Senior Veronica Curran is the hardest working woman on the team as she is entered in the long and Triple jump, 300m dash, and potentially two relay team duties. Junior Allison Gardner is ranked #3 in the 55m dash and will run both the 4x200m and 4x400m.

In the girl's shot put - all three junior class ladies have the chance of making it to the regional championship led by Adrianna Haggerty Graham, Jada Patrick (55m and 4x200), and Daniela Garcia Palencia.

Practice preparation
A. Track and field are a winter sport - 99% of practices are outdoors.

B. I do not cut athletes however missing practices is the main way to be off the team - we are take attendance daily.

C. Very important that the athletes are dressed for the weather.



Necessary

Hats, gloves, long pants, long sleeves shirts

Sweatpants, sweat top/jacket

Leggings, bring a winter coat - you can use to stay warm between reps

Layers might be needed especially for the 530pm practices

If we get lucky - you can reduce your layers

My rule is - better to take off layers than need it and don't have it to put on.

Anyone not dressed properly might be sent home- it is for their health and safety.

7. Drink enough water - just because it is cold, doesn't mean the body don't need to be hydrated, matter of fact we probably sweat more in the winter.

8. Have snacks or food that you can eat between lunch and practice time.

9. If, the weather is so bad - we will try and find alternative small spaces indoors

10. If, we cannot secure any spaces indoors - we will cancel practices via Twitter, website, Schoology and school announcements.

If any of your athletes have a truck/suv/minivan to put mulch in to deliver and/or can follow the mulch vehicles and help load/unload mulch, that would be perfect.

Just want to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who made the 4th David Cannon Polar Bear Memorial Invitational Meet another successful event. Everyone was instrumental in making the event a success, parents, coaches, athletes, volunteers, administration, visiting team and supports. I want to thank the Boosters board especially Heather Reis-Platter and Michelle Crone for helping me put the finishing touches on the organizing and working the whole event. I appreciate you very much. Thank you for the coaches for running the smooth meet and the athletes for taking advantage of a wonderful day and competing well. The results are posted on the team website - www.gcmtrackandfield.com - there are few athletes who competed for others; let me know; so I can update any results.

The next two meets this week is going to the most important for most of the team, it will the last of most of you for the next month; unless we add meet during the break; most athletes would not be competing until Jan. 15th. That is long time to wait for a meet, so it is important you make yourself available to compete this weekend. There is a possibility for everyone to compete in both meets.

Spring Track & Field 2021 Update!!!

(Sunday, 5/16/21 - 7:14PM)

Here is the individual team ranking as of May 15th
*We only take 3 per event to District Champs
*Talk to coaches on Monday to see how you can position yourself to get a spot
*We will need 3 to 4 people as relay alternates too
*Not everyone who is top 3 will run - so you got to put yourself in position
*The varsity lettering marks are below - that could your goal too
*Any one who has hit the lettering mark has SLTR next to their name.
*You have to compete in the last meet entered to receive participation certificate for the season.

Each Athlete's Best Mark for Team Ranking this season

Every Athlete's Mark this season as of May 15th

Final Regular Season Meet Battle for District Champs spots.

*As we as coaches prepare for the championships – We will allow athletes to have some control over their place into the meet. It will help us make our decision easier.

*The field events are easy – you will be judges on your best performance.

*Distance races are a little easier – the number of spots will depend on whether the top athletes will run in those events. For example – Sebastian will not be running the 400m dash – even though he is the Top Ranked athlete. The ranking will help us make selection for the relay’s teams to Regional and State championship. We can carry 8 to Regional and 6 to States.

*The sprinting is harder because there is a mix of hand time and FAT (Fully Automatic Timing), luck for us this Wednesday’s meet is FAT. So, whoever wins – will get spot even if some had a faster hand time. Head-to-head matchups win over season performances. The rankings will help us make selection for the relay’s teams to Regional and State championship. We can carry 8 to Regional and 6 to States.

3. There is no events on Monday. Feb. 8th - it was moved to the 6th

4.  Specators are allowed - 2 per athletes . They will check you off at the meet.

5. Regional Team will be annoucement on Sunday, Feb. 7th 

6. Only athletes competing at District, then Regionals and States will continue to practice after the teams are set. 


Good Afternoon. We will have two buses for the meet - so if you need to ride to bus - you are good to go.

Also, I spoke to the athletic trainers - everyone who is not a field event athletes will need to be pre-screen at Marshall even if you are driving to the meet.

All field event athletes will be screened by a Marshall Coach (probably me) at Falls Church HS before entering the meet on Saturday. They need to arrive by 10AM at Falls Church HS.

4x800m athletes will be pre-screen by Coach General or Coach Haugh on Friday at Falls Church HS.

The weather is better than expected however - everyone still needs to bring a jacket/coat to stay warm until they have to compete. 

Thank you for your understanding.

Please contact Coach Wong with any questions.
