Cross Country 2018-2019

Posted in News & Announcements

Welcome to Cross Country for the 2018-2019 school year!  Our first cross country meeting will be 8/28 at 3 PM in the library.  We will not run at this first meeting, we will give you a waiver that need to be signed and an information sheet to take home to your guardian(s).

Your coaches this year are Ms. Miles and Mr. Steffanic. We hope this provides you an opportunity to compete in an activity that promotes a healthy lifestyle, leadership, development and teamwork.  We will hold practices Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3-4. We meet dressed to run on the lower field. There is water at the drinking fountain inside the door, if you want other water, bring a water bottle.  The longest distance we run is 3 miles. We begin each practice with a warm up lap, stretches, a run (or running activities) then end with stretches. Our first practice will be September 4th. We have two competitions each year, the quad (4 school race: ours will be against Draper Park, Indian Hills, & Albion) and the district (all middle schools in the district) race:

QUAD meet is at Indian Hills on September 20th, it’s usually 1.6 miles.  All students compete.

DISTRICT meet is at Union Middle School on Saturday, October 13th at 9:00 am, the top 3 boys and the top 3 girls from each grade level compete in the district meet.  

We will run/train indoors if it’s raining hard or if air quality is bad.  Thank you for your support!  If you have any questions, please give us a call 801-826-7000.
