Our last pasta feed was very much appreciated by all the athletes who attended.  On their behalf, thank you to each of the 45 families that contributed to it's success.  That being said, we have two opportunities in which families can help again this week, Wednesday's pasta feed and Thursday at our first home meets.  The sign up for both are available here.  No experience is necessary to help at a meets, we need a lot of recording of marks and measuring of field events. It is an excellent way to be close to the action and interact with the athletes. High School track meets are completely run by volunteers and don't use any paid officials. 

We will have the swag (sweatshirts, shirts, racing shorts and sweats)  available for pick up at the pasta feed so the athletes have it forThursday's meet.

We will be distributing the Brown Bear car wash tickets at the concession stand during the meet, and any swag not picked up before.

Thank you for to all the families who have donated.  If your employer matches charitable donations and volunteer hours, please take advantage of their program. We are registered with Starbucks, Boeing, Microsoft, and Costco.  Submit using Wolfpack EIN 77-0616862   PURPOSE: Eastlake Wolfpack and specify the sport as this is an umbrella organization for the booster clubs at the high school.

See you at our home meet Thursday and thank you in advance for all your help we are seeking this week.

If you would like to purchase Brown Bear to support the team please do so by midnight tonight.  We sell the tickets in blocks of 20 for $7 apiece, that is less than you pay at the car wash.  These can be upgraded, if you prefer more than a Beary Clean wash. They make great thank you gifts or athletes can resell them. Purchased car wash tickets will be available for pick up in the concession stand at next week's home meet.

If you have not purchased a uniform, please do so by Wednesday morning. I will bring them to the start of practice on Wednesday after pictures.  If you ordered one and have not received it yet, please remind your student to pick it up on Wednesday.  Coaches do not have the uniforms.  Uniforms and Car wash tickets are both available through the team registration button.

If you purchased Spirit Gear, it will be available for pick up in the concession stand at the home meet next week.

We will do the team picture for the yearbook on Wednesday.  Athletes will be given their team shirt prior to the picture.

There are two meets this week, Thursday at Skyline and Saturday at Kent Meridian.  All athletes are responsible for getting themselves to Skyline by 3:00 for a team meeting.  Individual event coaches may want them there earlier if so they will let them know on Wednesday.  Due to the large number of schools that attend Invitationals there is a limit to the number of entries per team. Coaches will let individual Athletes know on Tuesday if they will be attending Saturday's meet.  Athletes will need to arrange transportation to the meet on Saturday as there is no bus, coaches will let them know when they need to be there.  Follow this link for more meet details.

Enjoy the first week of Spring and come out and cheer on our athletes this Thursday at Skyline.

Pasta Feed in Preparation of the First Meet

By Coaching Staff 03/12/2018, 5:45pm PDT

Welcome to our first week of competition! Thursday’s meet will be the battle of the Plateau, with Eastlake, Eastside Catholic and Skyline first ever tri meet.  The events will begin at 4:00 at Skyline.  Athletes will be responsible for getting themselves to Skyline by 3:00.  Unlike most other Varsity sports, there is no entrance fee for dual and tri meets.  Some Invitationals will charge. This will be an abbreviated meet, not all events will be run.  There is a typical event schedule on the website under the track & field tab for future reference.  Meets are on a rolling schedule, so the times are only estimates.  Athletes usually know the day before what events they will be competing in at the meet.

To celebrate the beginning of the competitive season, we will hold our first of four all team pasta feeds on Wednesday at 4:00 in the Eastlake Commons.  Please follow this link to sign up to bring something, we cannot do this without your help!  If you ordered a uniform, they will be available to pick up at the pasta feed. If you haven’t ordered a uniform yet, please do so by Wednesday morning!

For those of you that have already made a booster donation, thank you very much.  Today, the Booster Club delivered a brightly colored high jump bar and practice bungee for our jumpers, as the old one was rather bent.  This is an example of how your money is put to use to enhance the program.  If you have not made a donation there is still time.  We have a large coaches wish list we would like to work through, but we need your help. Each family is asked to either make a minimum $100 donation or purchase $140 worth of Brown Bear car wash tickets. We will place the car wash ticket order on March 19th so that we can have them available for pickup at the concession stand during our home meet on March 29th.

Enjoy the sunshine and come out and cheer on our athletes this Thursday at Skyline.
