2019 Cross Country News-Aug 18, 2019

SW XC Family, Updated Aug 18, 2019,

This has been an outstanding week for SWXC. We had a n excellent week of practice, had a great time at Hanging Rock State Park, ran at Salem Lake on Sat and Sunday, 20+ parents and runners swarmed the XC course to get it in the best shape ever. Thank you to our XC Booster Club for making the course clean up day a huge success.

Runners are continuing to forget to bring their watches to practice. This is not acceptable. This week the runners will need their watches almost every day at practice. We are beginning to get into actual workouts for the majority of the team. Late arrivals will continue to build on their base (developing lower leg strength and aerobic capacity), but they still need their watches.   

JV-A racers with aspirations to making the Varisty team must get racing Spikes by the end of August. 

Important Dates:

Aug 19th MON-Practice begins at 7pm due to the Open House. Get your Uniforms from Coach Steely at open house. Because we are getting a late start at practice I am asking all Varsity and JV-A to get in a 3 to 4 mile run in the morning. This will allow the evening practice to end by 8:15-8:30pm
