First day of practice (no try-outs) - 

Schedules: Full game/meet schedules can be found

Policy: In order for a student to participate in any interscholastic athletic activity, he or she must have the following on file in the office prior to beginning try-outs or practice: 
  · Signed insurance waiver (one per school year) 
  · Completed physical (signed by a medical doctor or nurse practitioner) that is not more than one calendar year old (expires after 12 months)…If one uses the newest form, the physical is valid for 13 months (395 days)

Procedure: Students are to turn these two items into the junior high office and then they will receive a "green card" that is to be given to the coach by the student. This card will provide the coach proof that both items have been turned in to the office and the student in eligible to try-out or practice.


In the spring of 2008, the MJHS track program began a new tradition. With the support from the Lacy family, the Rick Lacy Memorial Track Award was established in honor of the former Junior Potter two-time state track champion whose life was tragically cut short. This award recognizes an 8th grade girl and boy who exemplify Rick's qualities of dedication, determination, and inspiration. A plaque has been created to honor Rick's accomplishments as well as recognizing past winners of this memorial award and hangs outside the MJHS gymnasium. (pictured above are 2008 winners: Lexi E. and Fernandez B.)
