I would like to encourage your son or daughter to participate in cross country if possible. Running is an excellent way to stay in shape, prepare for another sport, to be part of a team, to get stronger, and to learn competition and sportsmanship.
Most cross country meets occur on Thursday and Saturday. I know that athletes must do more than one sport if the school is to be successful. As a coach, I want the school to be winners at all sports and activities. I will try to accommodate all schedules.
If your son or daughter is interested in running I will more than welcome them to give it a try. No runner will be cut from the team because of lack of talent. All runners will participate in each meet. The only cuts that will be made will be based on grades or behavior.
I will try to let the runners know in advance of any changes in practice or meets. Please understand that many times there are emergency changes due to weather, sickness, etc. They will be allowed to call home if this occurs.
*Details about meets will follow
Congratulations to Jordan Lewis, Alex Lewis, Connor Loyd, and Noah White for their State Qualifying Cross Country season. Not to take away from the rest of the runners because all of them had great seasons and I saw a great amount of improvement from all of them. I hope to see all of them running in the future. I had a great first season as Head Coach and want to thank all of you for your support.
Coach Cameron Shelton
