Everyone that tried out made the team! As of now we have 29 runners, 21 boys and 8 girls. I will be placing runners into different training groups depending on their times. My goal as a coach is for everyone to improve! With that being said, some runners may not run in every Saturday invitational. I won't place runners unless I feel they will be successful.
Mandatory practices tomorrow and Friday are at Matthews Hill at 8am and will we be working on increasing mileage.
Next week August 12-16 I will be away on vaction. My 2 assistants, Scott & Dave, will be running practice. Unfortunately, they are only available from 1:30p-3p, make sure to bring lots of water. At Matthews Hill
