Following strong performances from the previous week, your varsity Eagles found themselves at ODAC for the Olathe Invitational on Friday, April 9. Between the 10 teams present at the meet, the field of competition was a welcome challenge to the Eagles; both teams came away with a slew of top performances and personal bests.

On the ladies’ side of competition,  Olathe North earned a number of top three finishes that contributed to the Lady Eagles’ 97 team points. In the sprints, Ka’Liyah McGinnis was the standout athlete of the day, blowing by her competition to reign as the event champion in both the 100 meter dash (12.20) and the 200 meter dash (25.30). With these gold medal performances, McGinnis can also boast to have broken the school record in both events!

Kaiya McKie proved her dominance in the 100 meter hurdles. Not only did she place first in the event, but she shaved an entire second off of her time from the previous week with a time of 15.43.

To round out a night of gold medals for the two athletes, both McGinnis and McKie competed in the girls 4X100 meter relay. Also running in the event were Ashlyn Alloway and Saniya Simmons. With a time of 49.77,  these athletes not only won the event, but have recorded the best time in the state.

The girls 4X100 wasn’t the only relay for the Eagles to out-perform its competition. In its season debut, the girls 4X800 meter relay, consisting of Anjali Hocker Singh, Savanna Stewart, Kaylee Tobaben, and Shea Johnson won the gold with a time of 9:54.61.

Other top three finishes rounded out the night for the ladies. Many crucial points were scored in the 1600 meter run. Anjali Hocker Singh finished second in the event (15:16.02) while Kaylee Tobaben took the bronze (15:18.05) . Additionally, Lexie Dockstader finished third in the girls 3200 meter run with a time of 11:52.98.

For the boys varsity athletes, there were also a number of top performers who helped lead the Eagles to 6th place finish in a field of heavy competition. Of the point-earners at the meet, the Eagles brought home five top-three finishes.

Of the five medals earned, three came from the track. After a stellar performance in the previous week, Jacob Parrish adds to his hardware with a silver medal in the 400 meter dash with a time of 50.99. Parrish can also boast a second place finish in the boys 4X100. The relay, consisting of Alex Flower, Jacob Parrish, Tristan Madden, and Laython Patillo, took the silver medal behind DeSoto with a time of 44.22.

Also earning crucial points on the track was Josh Parrish with his third place finish in the 110 meter hurdles. He took the bronze by a slim margin with a season-best time of 15.81.

In the field events, the Eagles had two medalists. Junior Paul Rowden cleared 6-02 to earn himself a second place finish. Then, in the throws, Mason Hyskell delivered a huge personal record throw of 48-10 to win the bronze medal in the event.

Track & Field Dominates at Varsity and JV Levels

Last week, the Eagles opened the track and field regular season with an array of stellar performances.

On Friday, April 2, your Eagles stalked their prey at the Blue Valley Spring Classic at the Blue Valley District Activities Center. Despite stiff competition, both the boys and girls teams scored enough combined points to be crowned meet champions.

The lady Eagles boast the event champions in all of the sprints – Ka’Liyah McGinnis was the top finisher in both the 100 meter dash and the 200 meter dash, while Tynee Leggett was the event champion in the 400 meter dash. Sprints further added to the point total with the girls 4X400 meter relay, which took the silver medal in the event.

Also dominating the track were the top finishers in the hurdles – Kaiya McKie was the event champion in the 100 hurdles, while Jill Klusman finished just behind her for the silver in the event. Though finishing second in the 100 hurdles, Klusman earned her own bragging rights by finishing first in the 300 meter hurdles and a second place in the pole vault that shattered the school record. To round out the field events for the lady Eagles, Gabriella Margheim earned 10 points as the event champion in the high jump, while freshman Elena Martinez took the bronze in the discus throw.

Rounding out the top three finishers for the ladies came from solid performances from the distance crew. In the 1600 meter run, juniors Kira Almsberger and Lexie Dockstader earned the silver and bronze. In the girls 3200 meter, the lady Eagles produced another pair of second and third place finishes from Anjali Hocker Singh and Kaylee Tobaben.  Hocker Singh set the school record in the 3200 in her performance!

For the boys, there were also a number of top three finishes that paved the way for the Eagles’ top spot at the meet. Jacob Parrish earned bragging rights for his individual gold medal performances in both the 200 meter dash and the 400 meter dash. Rounding out the sprints, the boys relay teams took to the track with a silver medal in the 4X100 and a bronze medal in the 4X400.

Josh Parrish came away from the meet with a pair of silver medals in both the 110 meter hurdles as well as the high jump. The Eagles boasted more stellar performances from the field events with a pair of event champions from the jumps: Junior Tristan Madden took the gold in the boys triple jump while Ian Quarles earned the top spot in the pole vault. Juniors Laython Patillo and Mason Hyskell also added to the team’s hardware. Patillo took third in the triple jump while Hyskell also earned a bronze medal in the shot put.

Track and Field Preseason Information

posted Jan 25, 2021, 1:29 PM by Levi Huseman   [ updated Jan 25, 2021, 1:33 PM ]

The 2021 Track & Field Season is quickly approaching; official start of practice is March 1st.

If you plan on running, jumping or throwing there are a couple things that you will need to get taken care of prior to the start of practice.

1. You must have your athletic paperwork filled out and returned to the main office. If you competed in a fall or winter sport you should already have this done. Reminder that you need new paperwork filled out every year so if you haven’t filled out paperwork for the 20-21 school year you will need to get this taken care of ASAP.


2. Sign up to receive informational text messages through the “Remind” app.  Because of how large the track team is you will need to sign up using the appropriate code below.

    1. If you are a BOY ATHLETE – text     @ontf21B     to the number    81010. Follow the prompts and make sure to use your real name. No nicknames.
    2. If you are a GIRL ATHLETE – text     @ontf21G     to the number    81010. Follow the prompts and make sure to use your real name. No nicknames.
    3. If you are a PARENT – text     @ontf21P     to the number    81010. Follow the prompts and make sure to use your real name. No nicknames.


3. Prior to the start of official practice we will be having conditioning sessions to get ready for the season.  If you are in a winter sport here at Olathe North, that is your priority and you should not attend any conditioning sessions.  If you are not currently participating though the expectation is that you make it to every conditioning session that you can.  Conditioning sessions have already started* and will continue until the season starts.

Conditioning sessions are split up by event group so we can have smaller groups as well as tailor workouts to your specific needs as an athlete.

  1. Sprints/Hurdles/Jumps Groups – Meet outside the library in the 400 hallway on Monday’s and Wednesdays; 3:30-4:30.  Wear a mask and bring clothes for both inside and outside.  It will be a game time decision as to whether we are inside or outside.
  2. Endurance/Long Distance Group – Meet in Room 015 on every day that school is in session.  Wear a mask and dress to run outside.  We will run outside every day so look at the weather and dress appropriately.
  3. Power/Throws Group – Meet outside the Weight Room on the benches on Monday’s and Wednesdays; 3:15 – 4:15.  Wear a mask and bring clothes for both inside and outside.  It will be a game time decision as to whether we are inside or outside.  (*The Power/Throws Group conditioning sessions will start Feb 1st.)


4. Invite your friends! The more people we have on the track & field team the more enjoyable it will be for everyone!  Even though the team tends to be on the larger end, there will be measures in place to make sure that everyone stays healthy.


5. Any additional questions?  Ask a Track and Field Coach

  • Coach Huseman; Room 015
  • Coach Jess; Room 106
  • Coach Johnson; Room 112
  • Coach Baer; Room 212
  • Coach Loecker; Room 104
  • Coach McCall; PE Dept
  • Coach Smith; PE Dept

Spring Workouts. YOU get to decide what you get out of it!

posted Mar 30, 2020, 1:43 PM by Levi Huseman   [ updated Mar 30, 2020, 9:40 PM ]

Just because the season is canceled doesn't mean that we don't want to get faster/more explosive or be in better shape!  
We are still going to prepare workouts for you. You get to decide what you want out of the next 3 months.  Are you going to work your tail off and be in the best shape of your life when we get back together (football/volleyball/cross country/college/etc.), or are going to be lazy and choose to not do anything.  Choice is yours.  Read something on twitter today and thought it was pretty spot on.

You've got three options.  Keep in mind it is 100% your choice which you do...
Option 1. Don’t do any workouts on your own, and you’ll know it. Option 2. Do 2-4 workouts a week, you, your teammates (and your coaches), will know it. Option 3. Do 5-7 workouts a week, you, your teammates, your coaches, AND your opponents will know it!

Things will switch a little from being event specific to general strength and explosiveness or aerobic development.  
There are only two groups.  A Speed Group(with Power Options) and an Endurance Group.  The Speed(And Power) workouts will likely benefit an athlete who plays football, volleyball, basketball, etc.  while the endurance workouts will likely benefit cross country, soccer, swimming, etc. athletes.  But obviously feel free to do any workout that you like. If you want to do some days from the Speed/Explosiveness workouts and others from the Endurance workouts that's awesome too!  We just want to give you options so that you can continue to make yourselves better.

Here's how everything is set up.  We have prepared two weeks of workouts that will repeat themselves (meaning when you finish the last workout of week 2, you'll go back and start week 1 again)

Speed Workouts  (Everything here is less than 10 seconds of running so Power Group this is for you too)                         

And then there are probably thousands of ideas online for workouts.  One that I've personally liked is from University of Georgia Football Strength and Conditioning Coach Scott Sinclair.  He does a workout of the day and you can find his workouts on his twitter: https://twitter.com/coach_sinclair

No matter what you choose to do understand that it is YOU'RE CHOICE.  It doesn't matter if we can't meet.  It doesn't matter if you can't get into a gym.  It doesn't matter if you don't have access to weights.  You can choose to make yourself better.  
Last thing I'll leave you with is a quote from JJ Watt (NFL Football Player if you didn't know).  Success isn't given, inherited, or owned; its leased. And rent is due EVERY DAY.

Conditioning Info!!!

posted Jan 14, 2020, 8:52 AM by Levi Huseman   [ updated Jan 14, 2020, 9:36 AM ]

Track and Field Conditioning is underway!!!  Even if you are not interested in Track and Field you are more than welcome to come if you want to get in better shape, faster, or more explosive!  See the info below for our different conditioning groups.  (Each group's info is in a different color to make it easier to find)

Sprints/Jumps Group
Starting time: 3:15
Ending time: 4:15 (give or take 15 minutes)
Schedule: Mon, Tue, and Thur when school is in session
Meeting Location: Outside the Library
Special Note: Change and leave your clothes/bags in the locker room. 

1. Increase SPEED
2. Improve explosiveness
3. Have fun!

Additional Info:
1. After school get changed into workout clothes and then meet outside the library. We will meet inside almost every day. We will only go outside is if it is really nice.
2. Getting Faster/More Explosive isn’t something that happens by showing up once. Make a commitment and see what happens when you do this for an entire winter. 
3. Be on Time! Our warmup is an important part of the process. If you miss that you won’t get as much out of the session plus you risk getting hurt.

What you will need:
1. Shorts, T-shirt, and shoes you can sprint in.
2. Commitment. You don’t “have” to be here. You also don’t “have” to get better. Show up so that you have the best possible chance of being the fastest version of yourself.

Power Group
Starting time: 3:15
Ending time: 4:15 (give or take 15 minutes)
Schedule: Mon, Wed, and Thur when school is in session
Meeting Location: Weight Room
Special Note: Change and leave your stuff in the locker room.

1. Gain strength and power through a weight training program.
2. Improve overall flexibility and explosiveness
3. Maintain consistent attendance.
4. Build a bond. Thrower nation baby!

Additional Info:
1. We will meet in front of the weight room at 3:15. If you are going to be late, we will see you the next day. Being on time and ready to go are critical in performing well this offseason. We understand that things come up, but this needs to be a priority not a punishment.
2. Bring appropriate workout clothes. This means shirts and shorts that you would wear to school.
3. Hydrate during the day. Coming to practice without drinking enough water and eating well is a recipe for disaster. Also plan to run after we are done lifting. 

What you will need:
1. A physical. Get this done now so we are not worrying about it during the season!
2. Commitment. Off season is not a punishment or something that you “have to do”. You need to want to be here and to get better every day. The work we put in now is going to make us better than everyone in May.

Endurance Group
Starting time: 3:15
Ending time: 4:45 (give or take 15 minutes)
Schedule: Mon through Fri. If we have school, we meet.
Meeting Location: Room 015
Special Note: Change and leave your clothes/bags in the locker room. 015 may be locked when you get back.

1. Consistent training- each day, week, & month.
2. Run a regular long run.
3. Improve your overall strength (weight room.)
4. Improve Hip Flexibility & Strength (Hip Routine)
5. Maintain Speed! (Strides after every run)
6. Log EVERY run.
7. Have fun and make memories! Maybe run an indoor race or two. (I can post a schedule).
Additional Info:
1. We will run outside no matter how cold or snowy it is. We will NOT run through the halls. These days will be great stories, fun experiences that you get to share with teammates, and opportunities to make yourself the bad dude or dudette you are.
2. The secret to success is consistency- daily, weekly, monthly, and even yearly. I promise you- if you train consistently, you will have the best spring you have had AND a tremendous fall xc season.

What you will need:
1. Running Shoes! If you bought shoes during the summer or beginning of cross country season, it is time to buy again. Prohibit injury by staying in a good pair of shoes.
2. Layers. Remember we will run outside EVERY day. Layering up is the best way to stay warm.
3. A running watch. They are $10 at Walmart. Go get one.

2019 Track and Season Starts February 25th!!!

The 2019 season is right around the corner!  If you haven't been conditioning we have one more week of that and then the real fun begins!!  

There are only a couple things that you HAVE to do before the season starts on the 25th. 
1) You must have a physical on file with the office.  If you have already been in a sport you are probably fine.  If you are not sure just go check in the office.
2) Sign up to get remind text messages.  We will distribute almost all of our information via remind.  To sign up you just need to text the phrase: @ONTF2019 to the number 81010.  If you can't sign up for any reason, see Coach Huseman and he will get you taken care of.
3) Fill our this google form (its just helps us build a roster so we know who all is particpating) --> Sign up and get on the roster HERE!!!!!
4) Team Gear and Spirit Wear orders will be available in the very near future. The store will close sometime during the first week of practice so that we can get our gear shortly after spring break.

Lastly, If you'd like to come to conditioning here are the times for our last week
