Updates - Week of 9-4-17

-The boys shook off the rust this past week at the Early Bird Invite. The meet saw many strong performances and a handful of PRs!

-Saturday, the 9th, we race in the Averill Invite at Kensington. The course is at the Possum Hollow picnic/rec area. Varsity boys will compete in the D1 race at 10:30. All JV runners will race at 11:30. Awards are at 12:15. The top 25 runners in the varsity race will receive medals. The athletes will wear their orange and white singlets. There will NOT be a bus for this meet. Runners need to meet at the course at 9:00. Please incorporate the 10 min drive from the park entrance to the course in your plans.

-The boys schedule will be changing slightly with the start of school. Practices will start at 2:50 and end at 5:15. The team will complete their short warm up and supplementals at BHS before heading to one of the parks. Coach Elsey will have to leave practice early on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and a couple Tuesdays. The team will practice at BHS on these days and the captains will run the remainder of each practice. On Fridays with home football games, practices will end around 3:20 to accommodate the athletes who participate in marching band. Please refer to the weekly update to ensure you have the correct schedule for each week.

-There are a handful of athletes who have not returned their transportation contracts. They must be returned to Coach Elsey ASAP.
