Track and Field
This is a Season 4 sport, so it usually takes place between late March and late May.
One of the great things about this sport is that there are a multitude of events for students to participate in:
|100 Meter Dash||4 x 100 Meter||Long Jump|
|200 Meter Run||4 x 400 Meter||Triple Jump|
|400 Meter Run||High Jump|
|800 Meter Run||Shot Put|
|1600 Meter Run|
|100 Meter Hurdles|
Work with the coaches and your teammates to find the perfect event or events for you!
"Practice makes perfect."
Practice for track and field will take place every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday during the beginning of Season 4.
Once meets begin, practices will only occur on non-meet days for the duration of the season.
As with all sports and club activities, there will be no official practice on early release Wednesdays.
Practice begins at 2:35 pm and will conclude by about 4:05 pm. Please arrange for transportation home or use the activity bus.
It is expected that athletes be at all practices unless prior communication takes place. All athletes who have met the eight-practice requirement will be allowed to compete in matches.
What is a "Meet"?
At each track meet Timbercrest will be competing against another middle school in the Northshore School District, while each student should aim to compete against themselves as well.
Just like with practice, members of the track team are expected to attend meets unless prior communication takes place.
- 6th graders only compete against other 6th graders, while 7th and 8th graders will compete against each other.
- Girls and boys participate against their own gender in all events.
Events are scored based on place, with 1st place receiving the most points. Once all events have been completed, the points for each team will be added up. The team with the most points wins the meet.
For meets that take place at Timbercrest students should remain at school for warmups and last minute strategy changes.
Buses will be provided to transport students to meets that occur at other schools. Please be ready to board the buses by 3:15 pm!
At the conclusion of both home and away meets students will need to arrange for transportation home.
Practice Good Sportsmanship
Though it is a competition, it is important to practice good sportsmanship at all matches.
- Refrain from "trash talk".
- Express appreciation toward your competitors whether you are the host or visitor.
- Don't be a sore loser or a sore winner.
- Winning means nothing if you lose off of the field by being disrespectful or disruptive.

During our visit to Canyon Park much of the team were taken in by the splendor of newly renovated track and field area. Then we got down to business!
There were a lot of great efforts from TMS, including amazing 4 x 400 relays from both Varsity Boys and 6th Grade Girls!
The team learned a lot from this experience and here's hoping for a great showing at the first home meet from the Wolves!

Track came home to TMS and we did our best to be good hosts. While we struggled against Skyview in many areas, once again the Varsity 4 x 400 Relay teams for both boys and girls brought in much needed points as the evening drew to a close.
The good news is as we train and practice we can start taking more points back and come out on top!
Speaking of which, the 6th Grade teams had a great showing once again, with the boys coming very close and the girls earning their second decisive victory in a row.
The Timbercrest Track and Field staff would also like to thank the many parent volunteers who made this meet possible. Our volunteers were amazing and took on tasks with a smile. Without your help we never would have been able to finish as early as we did...or at all :P
We also must give thanks to the fine coaching staff from Skyview. They allowed us to borrow a block and really helped out by coaching some of our volunteers. It really was a team effort!

After a rainy morning the team was treated to a sunny dry meet at Inglemoor High School against the Kenmore Colts.
This was an interesting place for a meet, as the track boasted eight lanes and a place for the discus and pole vault. Sadly, though, the long jump area was not as nice as what we saw at Canyon Park.
The competition was fierce, with the Boys Varsity team coming up only 3 points short of a victory. If we had claimed just one more third place finish this would have been a tie, and one more second place would have put us on top.
The 6th Grade Boys team encountered serious resistance, though there were many heroic efforts that claimed some points for the Wolves.
The Colts also offered a serious challenge to the 6th Grade Girls team, but for the third straight meet they emerged victorious by more than 20 points!
Timbercrest would like to give thanks to the Kenmore coaching staff for hosting a very pleasant meet!

The sun returned for to Timbercrest for our second home meet. This time our nearby neighbors from Leota came to visit, and they brought their A game!
Luckily, the Wolves of boys varsity were absolutely on fire, claiming first place finishes in every event save for one! It was also exciting to see the stellar 4x400 Relay team remain undefeated despite the best efforts of the coaches come in and claim a spoiler win :P
The varsity ladies also had an amazing night. While we lost some points in the running events, the girls took first place in each of the field events and came within just one first place finish of total victory!
The 6th Grade Lions were just as ferocious, and they really gave our boys team a hard time. But we managed to take first in the 800 Meter Run and do well in some of the field events.
On the girls side, Leota challenged our 6th Grade team from start to finish. Points went back and forth in nearly every event, and even before the scores were tabulated everyone knew it would be close. In the end, the 6th Grade Girls remained undefeated thanks to win by just two points. This is yet another case where having the 4x400 Relay team saved the day, as they claimed five points that would have been otherwise lost.
Beyond the amazing performances of the student athletes, Timbercrest would like to thank the amazing parents who helped make this meet possible. Thanks to all the generous help from parents we were able to complete events in our second home meet before 7pm!
We also could not have had such a great evening without the help from the Leota coaching staff. They were all over the field helping with or running events. Mr. David Weed was able to bring years of expertise to our electronic timing system and get it running with the correct settings for the first time! This made it possible to make some of the close calls in the heated races with confidence all evening long!

The teams once again traveled to Ingelmoor High School for the district finals on Tuesday evening.
The competition was even more fierce than usual, and we got to meet the Titans of Northshore Middle School for the first time.
On the varsity side the boys fought hard, with Caleb Sehmel bringing the Wolves our only first place finish in an epic 800 Meter run! Hudson Duff never gave up in the high jump, snagging an important second place. The unstoppable 4 x 400 relay team of Cash Sanders, Spencer Gudmundson, Josh Rubow, and Caleb Sehmel posted a time that was so close to first place as they beat their own personal record despite all the members being tired from a night of hard fought races. Everyone should be very proud of this well earned third place, as this small team really made an impact against teams of vast numbers!
Girls varsity continued to fight hard, with top points scored by Baeley Allenspach and Kaitlyn Farrow in the field events. While the lady Wolves had some trouble with the running events, it was great to see the 4 x 400 relay team take one last trip around the track!
Boys 6th Grade had a rough night as well due to some absences and events with no entrants. But there were many bright spots, such as Alex Torgesen getting second place in the Triple Jump and third place in the Long Jump. Samuel Hurchalla grabbed an important third place finish in the 800 Meter run, beating several competitors that broke personal records whilst still failing to catch Sam.
Of all the teams at TMS the Girls 6th Grade came into things with the best shot at first place. Unfortunately some injuries and absences left the girls down but not out, as they grabbed third overall. Hailey Quiggle brought in the only first place finish by dominating the Triple Jump. The 4 x100 relay team of Sarah Vannoy, Hailey Quiggle, Hailey Anthony, and Macy Yracheta were so close to getting first place, but their second place was an epic victory on its own in a field packed with talent. This team brought in points throughout the night with Hailey getting second in the 100 Meter Dash, Sarah getting third in the 200 Meter Run, Macy getting second in the 800 Meter Run. Katelyn Faulhaber, Ava Wahl, Sarah Krug, and Cara Gallagher took on 4 x 400 relay time and time again to earn points, and their second place finish was once again a huge points boost for the team. It was definitely sad to come in behind teams we had defeated before, but their amazing achievements this season mean that the varsity team next year is going to get some serious talent!
All the teams and athletes should be proud of the great effort they put forth this season! Never forget that the place you get means a lot less than whether or not you pushed yourself to do your best!
