Great job at Stanford this weekend!

Boys took 2nd out of 32 teams. Jonah finished 5th overall out of 259 runners in a time of 15:45. PR’s by Stephen (16:19), Derek (16:21) and Marcos (16:42) and a Team PR almost 3 minutes faster than last year.

Saturday, October 8th is The Other Meet at Granite Regional Park. We host this meet with Rio, so we will need parent volunteers to help collect timing chips, pass out water and to be course monitors. We need volunteers from about 8am-noon. Please let me know if you can help. Athletes should be at the meet by 8am also, so they can assist with the middle school races.

Jog-A-Thon is on Friday Oct.7. The money raised goes towards paying for entry fees to meets, uniforms, warm-ups, end of season awards, training equipment, etc. The goal is to raise $150 per athlete.

Wednesday practice is at Willow Hills, 4-6pm. Athletes, please try to coordinate your own rides up to Willow Hills. Let me know if you are unable to find a ride. Thank you parents who have been driving!
