Updates - State Champs!


-The boys capped off their amazing 2021 season as MHSAA D1 State Champions! Quinn Cullen earned All-State honors! Full meet results are posted on athletic.net.


-The 2021 team captured their 2nd KLAA Conference Championship in 3 years, 4th consecutive Regional Championship, and 2nd State Championship in 3 years! This season also saw 15 athletes run under 18 minutes for 5K. The eagerness of the runners to train with their teammates during the off-season is the driving factor in the program's success. Athletes not competing in a winter sport are highly encouraged to join our optional indoor season workouts.


-All BXC runners that have trained consistently throughout the summer and fall should consider getting their Ferritin (blood iron stores) levels checked. Runners with excellent diets should still get checked periodically if they've been engaging in consistent quality training over several months. This is especially true if an athlete's performance doesn't correlate with the amount of training put into the season. 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.


-Uniform return is Wednesday, November 10th. Athletes need to return their washed (and dry) uniforms to Coach Elsey's classroom.


-Awards Night is in the Maltby cafeteria from 7-9:30ish on Monday, November 22nd. We will not have food or drinks (bring your own coffee). All runners and families are encouraged to attend and celebrate the season!


-Good luck to all BXC athletes trying out for winter sports!
