Coming off another strong season for Arlington Track and Field, the coaches and athletes will be coming together again to put on their second annual Summer Camp.
The camp will be held from Thursday, July 11, to Saturday, July 13, from 3-5:30 p.m. It will be held at the Arlington High School Stadium and is open to anyone entering the 4th-9th grades that’s looking to experience the long list of events that track and field has to offer. The Eagles’ Summer Camp will cost $40 per participant and includes a free Arlington T-shirt.
Almost all of the events will be covered over the first two days of the camp and will culminate with a mini track meet on the final day.
“It’s a short and quick camp, but I think it’s packed full of a lot of fun and learning in that time. We have really skilled athletes, that have accomplished a lot in their time here, and a group of high-level coaches,” said Eagles’ booster and camp organizer Angie Donnelson.
Arlington has been one of the best programs in the state for the last decade and will provide each young athlete with all of the knowledge they’ll need to be successful. Not only will coaches be guiding the camp, but also high-level varsity athletes as well.
The list of athletes that will be coaching include Jersey Heiss, Jaden Roskelley and Aiden Emerson. Heiss is coming off a third-place finish in the javelin, at the State Championships, as well as competing on both the 4x100 and 4x200-meter relays. Roskelley placed fifth in the high jump at State and also placed in the top-15 of the Washington State Decathlon earlier this month. Emerson ran a leg of the 4x400-meter relay as a freshman at State this last season, and also placed in the top 11 in the 1,600- and 3,200-meter races at the District One Championships.
“My favorite part is seeing how excited the kids get to find out how they placed in the final meet and seeing them get better each day throughout the camp,” said Donnelson.
