•  ***A message from the MSHSL on the 2020 Spring Season***

    The Minnesota State High School League continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and the most current information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the Office of the Governor. The MSHSL supports the efforts of all students, staff and communities in limiting the spread of COVID-19. The goal of the MSHSL is to be responsive to member schools and keep future participation options open for the spring activity season. Effective immediately and continuing until the Governor of Minnesota has lifted his school closure declaration: • All participation in MSHSL spring activities at all member schools is suspended. • Participation includes, but is not limited to, competitions, training, practices, scrimmages, and contests. Pending a reopening of schools by the Governor, return to participation protocols will be determined and communicated by the MSHSL Board and MSHSL staff. 
     
     
     
    Track and Field
     
    This will be a different season. School has been put on hold through March 27th and so has the track season. We are unable to start track until March 28th. I will keep you posted on any changes to our season.

     

     

     

     

     
     

     

    Track and field is a fantastic sport where anyone with the desire can participate and be a part of the team. Though every athlete should set different goals for themselves, the sensation of success feels the same. As coaches, our purpose is to help you achieve your individual goals. And success is not based on talent alone. Hard work, mental toughness, great training, and desire are all part of the equation. So give your best, train hard, be dedicated to your goals and make your time here worthwhile!

     

    Through your experience on the team, we also hope you gain great insight into yourself. We hope you learn how to push yourself to the limit and then reflect on how far you’ve come. We hope you learn more about being healthy physically and mentally. We hope you learn to love track as a lifetime sport.  We hope you share many friendships and that together you make unforgettable memories as members of this team. And we hope you are proud to be a part of Tartan athletics. Best of luck to you this season!
