End of Season Banquet November 8, 2018

For those of you looking at some long term planning, our Cross country end of season banquet will be Thursday, November 8th, 2018 from 5:30pm-7:30pm.  We will celebrate all of our athletes throughout the season and their accomplishments:  Please bring the following items:

12th/11th grade main dishes

10th grade side salads/bread

7th-9th grade desserts/drinks

We will provide some bottles of water as well

Christmas Anonymous Volunteer Opportunity

Once again we’re looking for your help with loading again this year.  I’d appreciate it if you would put out the word to your team members and encourage them to help.  As you know Christmas Anonymous is great cause.  The recipients really appreciate all that we do and are very thankful.

Store day is Saturday, Dec. 8th at the usual place (Christ United Methodist Church on 4th St. SW).  Shifts are morning or afternoon (or both).  Help in the afternoon is particularly helpful as it is more difficult to get volunteers in the afternoon.  The morning shift starts about 8:15 am with preparations for the day.  I’d like to start the afternoon shift about 11:30.  We are usually done by about 3:30.  Please let me know if you or any of your team can help out and which shift.  Thanks.

Our Hopes


We hope that each of you this year set fourth achievable goals and took the necessary steps to work towards those goals.

We hope that you have enjoyed something that can be a lifelong learning experience that will help you handle the much more intense stresses of life in the future

We hope that you have enjoyed your teammates and the experiences both fun and sometimes difficult and uncomfortable position we have put you in...think yoga.

We hope that when you leave this program, you know how to continue to train yourself or find ways to work towards your goals.

We hope that we made you uncomfortable, and through that un-comfort, you were able to grow.

We hope you will always look back on this time as a growing and significant experience in your lives.

At this point in the season, we know you are physically ready.  Now is the time to show us that you have the mental stamina to support each other and be there.  When it is your best race and when it is your worst.
