Checks should be made out to: LCHS 7/8 Track and Field, with student ID number on the memo line. Jerseys for meets are available to purchase and yours to keep. If you elect not to buy a jersey, you will be given a loaner that must be returned or you will be invoiced for the amount. Sizes cannot be guaranteed with loaners. On the following website, you have the option to order Spartan jerseys, work out gear, and a sweat shirt to wear over the jerseys (and more!). It is helpful to personalize the sweatshirts both for ownership purposes and for the coaches. I highly recommend the sweatshirts.
