Granite Hills high school track and field had been using the same uniforms for over 20 years. Thanks to all of our generous donors, we we're able to provide 150 new uniforms and shorts to the 2022 Granite Hills Track and Field team.
THE NOMINATION LETTER
Hello, My name is Ava Guerra. I recently graduated from Granite Hills High School this past spring. I was a three-year tri-sport varsity athlete at the school, running track and cross country and playing soccer. I wanted to bring it to your attention that our track program desperately needs new uniforms. After four years of running on the track team, not once was the whole team ever matching at a meet because we don’t have enough in-tact uniforms for each athlete. From holes in shorts to tears in shirts to not even having enough sweatsuits for the entire team, it is clear that this nomination is necessary. There have been countless times where, for example, our long-distance runners will be in a completely different uniform than our sprinters, throwers, and jumpers. Uniforms are necessary for a team to create a special bond. They are what the competition first sees, what our athletes grow confident in their events. Every other program at our school is equipped with enough matching, in-tact uniforms for every student-athlete participating on the squad. The reasoning behind this is because our head coach, Coach Dann, is the most selfless man you will ever meet. This year, coach Dan will start his 28th season as a coach and 16th as head coach (since the 06/07 school year). He is an inspiration to the team, but he never asks for help when needed. Therefore, I find it necessary that our track program gets the same privilege to represent Granite Hills High School, its team, and its hard work. For there is honor in wearing a uniform. That is why I’m here asking you today to help the Granite Hills Track Team enhance their confidence as a whole with enough matching uniforms to supply the entire team this upcoming season.
We respectfully ask for one hundred and fifty total (seventy-five per both girls and boys track)singlets, shorts, and warm-up sweats.
