March 13, 2023 (Tuesday preview)

Updates /News:

  • Per a communication from Tiffany Matula (Jeremy’s wife), there is a significant shortage of PIAA Officials for HS Track and Field. To become an official you only have to take a  1-time test and then attend four yearly chapter meetings. Per Tiffany, her chapter is “very friendly and willing to mentor and help out with needed gear”. By becoming a track and field official you are paid $90 per meet and may also officiate X-C meets in the fall.
    • See email from 3/13 for contact details
  • FMTC Board will meet on March 23rd.  PLEASE let the board know if you have thoughts, ideas, or suggestions for the 2023 Season
    • Board contacts:  Kirchner J, Delia, Matula, McMillan J, Nesbitt, Sollenberger, Richter B
  • Please update your USATF membership if you plan on competing for FMTC in 2023
