Hill Hosts Open Track Night Friday

Blogger's Note: The following announcement was provided by The Hill School.

On Friday, May 9, beginning at 6 p.m., The Hill School will host the first-ever Pottstown Community Track and Field Night at the School’s William West Hauser ’81 Track. 
The event is free and open to all area youth ages 0-13. 

No pre-registration is necessary; all participants will be asked to register upon arrival, when they also will receive a free t-shirt.

Participants will be able to compete in races of various distances, as well as in the long jump and football throw. There will be an area on the track’s infield for younger contestants to do a shuttle-run race, while older participants will run on the track. 

Races will be run by age group. Additionally, complimentary refreshments will be available for
participants to enjoy, while Dallas Fries and Kona Ice will be on hand to provide concessions for families.

The Hill School’s Director of Athletics Seth Eilberg has seen other communities host similar meets and proposed the idea of The Hill hosting a community meet.

“We have seen other communities run similar events, and we thought that, with our new facility, we could run a Pottstown track night,” Eilberg said. 

“The Hill track and field program is thrilled to open our new track to the Pottstown and greater Montgomery County community. We hope that area youth who enjoy running will come out for a fun family night of competition and a celebration of the enthusiastic spirit of our proud community.”

Event parking will be available in the YMCA parking lot; at the Mt. Olive Baptist Church, located on the corner of Jackson Street and Mintzer Street; and along Sheridan and Mintzer Streets. Hill School security will be on hand at the various parking areas to direct families to the track.

The Hill School would like to thank the following local businesses for sponsoring the event: City Entertainment, Cutillo’s Restaurant, Dallas Fries, Kelly’s Sports, Little Italy, and Weitzenkorns.
