CIF Statement On Spring 2020 Season
The spring season has been lost to COVID-19. Click here to see the CIF statement. Click here to read Jerry Schniepp's, the San Diego Section CIF Commissioner, statement to Student-Athletes.
The 2020 Season will be long remembered for one that was short-lived. A season with intriguing promise had just two meets. Some of our athletes competed in both, while others competed in one and some none. Some schools never competed this season due to their schedule. To our Seniors, the early end to the season was not what you or anyone anticipated. The Coaching Staff feels for each of you as this should have been a crowning moment in your life to wear the Olympian Track & Field uniform for your final year of high school. Should you wish to continue track and field beyond high school then please reach out to us so we can assist where possible. To all those who worked hard and put in the work to achieve individual success, thank you for your dedication. In the days to come, I anticipate receiving information on how we formally conclude the season with respect to uniform return and distribution of spirit packs that were ordered. Additionally, I plan to hold an online meeting via Zoom or another media source with our captains to address other year-end commemorations. To all, please stay encouraged, finish off this unconventional school year which will move to "distant learning" with the very best you have. - Coach Adkins
Spirit Pack Gear
Spirit pack gear was made available for order in February with an expected delivery date to the school or if chosen your home prior to our second scheduled invitational meet which would have been the week of March 16th. All except one chose to have their merchandise shipped to the school. Prime Sports, the vendor, met the delivery timeline; however, with school closed, they were not able to deliver. As a result of Prime Sports and the Head Coach receiving inquiries from purchasers, the Head Coach picked up the order on March 27th.
Due to the current school closure and restrictions placed on coaches to have no personal contact with student-athletes, it is unknown at this time when purchasers will receive their order. Guidance will be sought from school administration as to delivery of your order. The team merchandise selected is top notch. Those who ordered will likely be happy with the quality once items are received. Your understanding is appreciated. Please be patient.
