The schedule for the Nike Northeast Regional is as follows:
9am Boys Open NY
9:30 Girls Open NY and NE combined
10:05 Boys Open Northeast Green Race
10:35 Boys Open Northeast Black Race
11am Anthem and Introductions
11:10 Open Awards
I will not find out which BOYS race we are in until I pick up the packet. I would STRONGLY suggest getting there early. Parking is tough. Arrival between 7:30 & 8:00am is ideal. Try to carepool. It's $10 per car, unless you have 3+ athletes, then it's free. DRESS WARM! It's right on the river so it's likely to be COLD & WINDY, unless we catch a break. 2 years ago there was snow...last year there was rain....
We will set up camp down the hill across from the finish line, in a grassy area. Heather, Dean, Jon, & Steve have been there & should have an idea of where we set up. Once again, here is the roster for who's attending:
Dean, Steve, Brian, Anthony, Jon, Logan, Nate, Amanda, Heather, Jess, Elsie.
Remember, I MUST have the waivers returned by Wednesday, 11/23, because I cannot pick up our packet without them.
Directions are on the Schedule tab of the website.
As the season draws to a close, it's time to get ready for our end of the season awards dinner!
This year, we decided to do something different.
On Friday, December 9th from 6:30-8pm we will be at the Gravity Vault in Middletown for some indoor rock climbing!
The cost is $10 per person and I need to have you sign a waiver in order to participate. You can download a copy here, or see me for one.
Beginning around 8:30, we will be having food, awards, prizes, & fun at The Stone residence, 8 Gallant Fox Rd, Tinton Falls, NJ.
Check back further on details on what to bring.
PLEASE RSVP by MONDAY, NOVEMBER 28th! We would like to give our hosts enough notice to prepare. Both ATHLETES & PARENTS are welcome at our awards part, but please, just athletes for rock climbing.
Text, Email, Call, or see me with any questions!
In this article, you'll find all you need to know about the Meet of Champions this Saturday!
Race time is 11:45am, but get there earlier. Parking is ON SITE.
Our bus will leave at 9am SHARP! Please be on time!
Congrats to Amanda for placing 4th in the Group 2 State Championships! She now earned her spot in the Meet of Champions on Saturday, 11/19.
The race is at 11:45am, and parking is available at the park. I do suggest getting their early anyway; the boys race is at 11:00am.
The FULL bus will leave MRHS at 9am on Saturday. I encourage, and hope, that as many team members as possible will attend. This is a first for Monmouth Regional, and as I said at Sectionals, we rise and fall as a team. This is no different. SEE me if you have any concerns.
Great work from everyone at the State Sectional meet this past weekend! I know we might not have gotten the results we were hoping for, but we had MASSIVE improvements from last year, so that's a win in my book!
Congrats to Amanda for advancing to the Group 2 Championship on Saturday, 11/12 at Holmdel Park.
Race time is 3:30. The bus will be leaving MRHS at 1pm. It is likely to be a small bus, so we have limited seats available. If you're interested in driving, here is the parking info:
For all spectators, the parking will be at the Vonage facility, located on the corner of Route 4 (Holmdel Road) and County Road 520 (Newman Springs Road). Use lots A and D. Shuttle buses will pick you up on the inside the lots on the road that circles the lots. This is the same procedure used last year. There is a $1 per person fee for the shuttle bus, that is used to offset the cost of the shuttle.
Arrive early so that you have enough time to take the shuttle to the park before the race goes off.
If you have any questions, please see me ASAP. As always, you are welcome to keep practicing this week to help Amanda prepare (or to prep for Nike in a few weeks)!
