Updates - Week of 6-24-19


-The season is off to a fast start with strong numbers and multiple athletes taking their first steps to joining our core group of runners. These numbers have been bolstered by multiple celebrity guest appearances by our recent alumni. The connection between current and former athletes is one of many factors that make BXC special!

-Yesterday just over 20 athletes and a handful of coaches gave back to Huron Meadows by helping remove invasive plants that are negatively impacting the ecosystem. Their hard work was greatly appreciated by park staff.

-The first single track trail is Wednesday at Island Lake. We will carpool from BHS at 8 a.m. and run the 6ish mile yellow trail. This run is ideal for athletes that are capable of maintaining contact with the main group and have run 6 or more miles without stopping on several occasions. The group will return to BHS around 10:00.

-Coach Elsey will be traveling to scout the new team camp with a couple of seniors after the single track trail Wednesday. Coach Monroe and the remaining upperclassmen will lead the workouts on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning.

-The MHSAA mandated Dead Week is the week of July 4th. Coaches may not have communication/contacts with athletes during this time.

-The Middle School XC Camp is Monday, July 22nd through Thursday, July 25th. The camp has averaged over 60 young runners the previous 3 years. We need high school athletes to volunteer to ensure these young runners have an excellent experience again this year!
