Springers meet set to go
On your mark. Get set. Go.
Those words, along with the crack of the starter’s pistol, will echo across the Stubler Memorial Field track on Wednesday when the Glenwood Springers track club hosts its annual fund-raiser meet Wednesday at the facility on the Glenwood High campus.
The meet features age groups ranging from 4-and-under to 60-and-over participating in various track and field events.
Scheduled events to be held include the 4×100 meter relay, distance medley relay, long jump, and shot put, along with individual running events (50, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1,600 and 3,200 meters).
Ribbons will be awarded to the top three finishers of each event.
There is also a division for family relay teams and corporate sponsored relay teams.
Trophies will be given for all three relay team champions.
Registration begins Wednesday at 4 p.m. The meet starts at 5 p.m.
A concession stand will also be open during the meet.
The entry fee is $10 for those over 18 and $5 for those under 18. The relay/relay sponsor fee is $50. All proceeds benefit the Glenwood Springers Track Club.
This season, the local track club has more than 60 athletes of all ages on its roster.
And since the track club’s inception, the Springers have produced several Colorado state and regional Junior Olympic champions.
Additionally, all of Glenwood Springs High School’s state champions since 1991 have been members of the Springers Track Club.
A partial list of those who have gone on to outstanding careers in high school and college include Chas and Marco Salmen, Megan McKinnie, Dana Boyle, Caroline Cretti, Corky Stark, Gus Lundin and Amy Feinsinger.
Additional information on the Springers meet can be obtained by calling Mike Kishimoto at 945-1425 or Greg Feinsinger at 945-5737.
