Updates - 10-24-22
-The boys finished 2nd, had 5 All-Conference runners, and several course best times at the KLAA Championships Saturday! Results are posted on athletic.net
-There are multiple schedule changes this week. Please refer to the schedule near the bottom of the update for practice times.
-Optional practices begin this week for runners that aren't top 7/alternates. These optional practices are highly encouraged for runners that would like to continue training with the team. Any unexcused absences must be made up at practice prior to the State Meet.
-The PROM (Pre Regional Open Meet) race is Thursday at Huron Meadows. There are no awards, just one final chance to compete this season. The boys race at 4:20 in Checkerboard singlets. Only varsity alternates and athletes that have contacted Coach Elsey are entered. Runners may be entered as late as Tuesday evening.
-The MHSAA Regional Championships are Friday, the 28th at Huron Meadows. Tentative dismissal time for the top 7 is 1:45. The boys race at 4:20. Medals to the top 15 individuals (All-Region) and trophy to the Regional Champions will be presented at 5:40. The top 3 teams will qualify for the State Meet held the following Saturday at Michigan International Speedway (MIS). Please note there is also a D3 Regional Meet being held prior to our D1 meet at Huron Meadows. There may be some congestion in the park with the D3 races at 3:00, 3:40, and awards at 4:45.
-As runners finish their season they are encouraged to take at least two weeks away from consistent training. General rule of thumb is to take the first week completely off from running. The second week athletes should run as much or little as they want. Runners may return to consistent training during the third week. Athletes that participate in a winter sport should focus on that sport and do everything they can to be great.
