Updates - 7-19-21
-The team's hard work this summer is paying off! We saw many fast times with a few crack into the top 10s on the "2 Mile Trail".
-Wednesday's single track trail is at Highland Rec Area. The trailhead is on Livingston Rd just west of Duck Lake Rd in White Lake. Runners will meet at 8:00 and will be running approximately 7.5 miles of hilly and technical trails. Athletes should be picked up around 9:30.
-Now is an excellent time for runners with high and/or intense training to get their iron levels checked, especially their ferritin levels. The program has seen multiple athletes in recent years put in the necessary work but unable to perform up to their expectations due to low iron levels. What is Ferritin by Dr. Kornoelje explains the importance of iron, the nuance of low ferritin levels, and a plan for checking and treating iron related issues. All BXC runners that have put in months of consistent/quality training should strongly consider getting their ferritin levels checked if they haven't been tested in the last few months.
-We have over 40 youth runners registered for our Middle School XC Camp! It is a great time for both the middle school campers and high school volunteers. The more high school athletes that volunteer the better!
-Wednesday, August 4th BXC boys and girls will be volunteering in the gardens at the LACASA center in Howell from 9-11 a.m. Also on the 4th, the BXC Parent Meeting will be held in the BHS cafeteria at 7 p.m.
-The team shorts order should be arriving early this week. All athletes are required to pay $20/pair to be issued their shorts.
-The 2021 Paperwork google sheet shows which paperwork/forms need to be completed and who has turned them in. Links to all required forms/docs are in the top row of the sheet. Runners attending Team Camp must have both their physical/consent and emergency card completed and turned in before departing on August 9th. All others must have these documents turned in when official practices begin on August 16th.
-The meet schedule posted on athletic.net is nearly complete (missing Spartan Invite). The 2021 Meet Schedule pdf identifies meets with full and partial roster participation.
