Letter & Academic Awards

We will pass out letter and academic awards on Thursday, November 19 from 4:00 – 4:30pm on the Esplanade by the E. If you didn’t get your covid, four year award, or cookie, those will also be available.

If you haven’t returned your uniform, you can also do this at the same time.

This is “drive by” style.   Wear your mask and drive on by!  

Hope to see you tomorrow!

SESSION 8 CANCELLED

Due to the rising numbers of the COVID-19 Virus, Denver East has elected to not participate in Session 8, which was scheduled to begin next week and run through December 4th.  As of now only Session 8 is cancelled and we will re-evaluate for Session 9 after the Thanksgiving Holiday, which is currently scheduled to begin December 7th, fingers crossed. 

We will be posting workouts to be done on your own here on the website two or three times a week.

Hello East Track,
This Thursday we are going to host a virtual google hangout to help send our seniors off properly. Coach Kohuth and myself will speak about the seniors, we will also let the seniors and their teammates say some words if they would like. I will send out the google hangout link Thursday morning. It is open to all East Track Athletes and your families if they’d like to attend. If you have a senior on our team and have not yet emailed me pictures and a short bio, please do so as soon as you can. This will be a very informal event, but gives us one last opportunity to gather as a team.
Details below. Thank you!!

Note to the distance team

Hey Runners!!  As you are painfully aware, the spring sports seasons have been canceled. I wanted to let you know all the coaches miss you and wish we could all be running together! Until we can do that, I want give you some updates and information about the upcoming cross country season—as far as we know, the fall season will happen, though it may be somewhat different than we are used to.  We need to make sure that we use this time to be getting in shape—while being safe and socially distanced.  While we have the potential to be really good next season, the work needs to be done this summer.  I am working on building our meet schedule, and we will be sending out recommended workouts and training plans soon.  Please be watching for upcoming virtual meetings or hangouts or races or other ways for us to stay connected until we are able to all get together!

 

If you are a rising senior and interested in being a captain next season, please send me (steven_kohuth@dpsk12.org) an explanation of why you would like to be a captain and what would make you a good one.

 

Please keep an eye on the cross country website for updates—the training schedule will be up very soon and we’ll be updating every week or so. Get out and run with your dog or your parents or your siblings and be safe and stay healthy and hopefully we’ll all be running together soon!

Coach Kohuth and the XC Coaches

 

 

CHSAA Cancels Spring Sports Season

East Track Family,

Again, I hope everyone and their families are staying safe and taking care of one another during this time.
In a statement this morning our CHSAA commissioner officially cancelled Colorado’s 2020 Spring Sports Season. Statement can be found here: https://chsaanow.com/2020-04-21/spring-2020-season-cancelled-due-to-on-going-covid-19-pandemic/.
Obviously this was an outcome we were expecting while still hoping it was one we would be able to avoid. While, we did not get to fulfill the season as we had planned or hoped I am still very grateful to be a part of this program with you all. On behalf of myself and our coaching staff, we want to say thank you, to all the student-athletes that were already at practice and committed to being a part of our program this season, and to the numerous parents who had already agreed to help volunteer as well. I think we should all be very excited about where this program can and will go in the future! Thank you all so much.
As for our seniors: this is a group that I was very much looking forward to seeing compete, and also to spend some time with this year.  This is a special group of kids and I cannot wait to see what they go on to do as adults. Parents – we are trying to get something together to honor our Seniors, if you could send any pictures or awards/accomplishments from over the years in an email to me that would be great.
Also, keep an eye out for updates regarding hopeful summer training and competition. As well as the plans and training for the upcoming Cross Country season in the fall, here is their website as well: https://easthighxc.com/.
Like I said before there are a lot of helpful hands in our East Community so please do not hesitate to reach out to myself or Coach Kohuth with anything you might need during these times.
Thank you!
Coach Tasker
