Athletes hit the track

The Kaua‘i Interscholastic Federation track athletes will once again hit the rubber track at the Vidinha Stadium in attempt to post state qualifying numbers.

This is the last qualifying meet before a string of special meets. After those, the qualifying meets pick up again in mid-April.

Athletes who make qualifying times, jumps or throws may submit those numbers to the Hawai‘i High School Athletic Association for consideration for a spot in the state championships. This year, championships will be held on Maui.

Be an official, officially

There will be an officials clinic put on by the USA Track and Field Association, held on March 17. It’s a clinic for those interested in being a certified track and field official.

Longtime Hawai‘i and former Olympic track official Gordon Scruton will conduct the clinic starting at 9 a.m. at Kaua‘i High School.

Organizers will use the Mayor’s Invitational track meet, that same day, at 2 p.m. as the practical site of the class.

For more information, call Dave Walker at 652-0616.
