Track and field qualifier, FEAC minutes release to be delayed
Published: May 9, 2012
I’d hoped to have the official list of qualifiers for the Far East High School Track and Field Meet May 23-25 at Yokota, but the release of that list has been delayed, along with that of the minutes from last month’s Far East Athletics Council meeting at Yokota, DODDS Pacific athletics coordinator Don Hobbs said in a brief phone call Wednesday.
We should have the official qualifiers list by the weekend, Hobbs said; there were some “discrepancies,” he said, that need to be addressed before that release. He did not elaborate.
Kinda tells me that the selection system for Far East track and field is a work in progress, and will likely be streamlined in one form or another come next year. Keep in mind, the Far East football playoffs have been in living evolution since their inception in 2005; I don’t expect something like track and field, with its mass of requirements and requisites, to be any different.
The FEAC meeting minutes still need to be reviewed by acting DODDS Pacific director Steve Bloom; hoping to get those in a few days. The FEAC schedule for school year 2012-13 might not be made public until early June, Hobbs cautioned.
