2007 Bella Vista Track and Field Announcements

Sac Bee's All Metro Teams! Veronica Stimson 1st Team!

BV Star Crushes Pole Vault Record! Bella Vista star Veronica Stimson made a statement in a big way on Friday night (5-25-07) at the Sac Joaquin Section Masters meet tying a Masters meet record in the pole vault, winning the masters meet pole vault championship, and shattering her own school record by vaulting 13 feet.  To put it into perspective here is what 13 feet means.  She has the best pole vault mark in the Sac Joaquin Section this year (Sac Joaquin Section Best Marks List!) and tied for number two all time, she has the third best mark in the state this year (State Best Marks!), she is 11th on the California State all time list, and finally she is ranked in the top 10 nationally (National List).  It also ties her for number 15 all time on the Bella Vista Boys pole vault list!  Wow!  This is truly one of the greatest performances in Bella Vista track and field history!  Way to go Roni! (again).  Thanks for the memories!


Veronica Stimson Continues to Amaze!  At today's Sac Joaquin Section Masters Meet (5-24-07) BV high jumper/pole vaulter extraordinaire Veronica Stimson qualified for the CIF State Meet for the second year in a row in the high jump going 5-06 inches.  That height was good for second place.  Tomorrow Roni tries for a second birth into the same state meet when she competes in the pole vault.  If you can, come out and support her and catch a great track meet!  Way to go Roni!!!!! 

Senior Veronica Stimson set a school record in the pole vault vaulting 12-04 at the Sac Joaquin Section Division 2 Finals on Friday!  She broke Katie Nishimura's record of 12-03.  In vaulting 12-04 she also became the division 2 pole vault champion.  Congratulations Roni!

Sac Joaquin Section Best Marks List! through April 25, 2007

Thanks: I would like to say thank you to all of the people who helped out at the Bronco Invitational.  I joke with the kids on the team that the week of this meet is the most stressful of my life (which means I have a pretty good life!).  The thing is with all of the help I get from the coaching staff, parents, and team I really don't feel the stress quite as much.  This year's addition was one of our most successful.  Thanks for making it happen!


Athletes of the Week:  For the week of our first center meet (March 7) the Bella Vista athletes of the week were Fred Carino and Megan Capistrano.  While competing in four events each, both were major contributors to their teams wins at the CAL center meet and had outstanding performances at the CAL Invitational on March 10.   Congratulations!

Presidents Week Practice Schedule:  Practice for the week of February 19-23 will be at 2:00 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday with our intra-squad meet starting at 3:00 pm on Wednesday 2-21.

Team Parent Meeting:  There will be a team parent meeting on Thursday, February 15 at 7:00 pm in the Bella Vista cafeteria.  This is a very important meeting so we need as many parents to attend as possible.  We will be covering team rules and guidelines, transportation, season schedule, fund raising, and other volunteer opportunities.  Hope to see everyone there!

2007 Season Track and Field Team Sign Ups: The Bronco Track and Field Team we will be having a sign up meeting on Tuesday, December 12 2006 at lunch in the big gym.  Those interested will need to be there to sign up and collect important information on the upcoming 2007 season.  If you have any friends who want to come out make sure that they stop by!  Our season begins Wednesday, February 10.  Mandatory pre-season conditioning begins Monday, January 22 (conditioning schedule).  You must be physically cleared before January 22!  See below for more information on physical clearance, grades, etc...
