Cross 11-9-15

Parents: What another great year for Christian High cross country! Thanks so much for your prayers and support. The food spread at the final was awesome. We do, however, have some details to remember: 1) Uniform/ sweats turn in will be either Tuesday or Wednesday this week. I’ll be at our normal meeting spot right after school to collect them. They must be washed, with all pockets emptied and pins removed. I will be checking all numbers to match the uniform/sweats assigned. PLEASE TURN IN ONE OF THESE TWO DAYS. DON’T MAKE ME CHASE YOUR CHILD DOWN OR HAVE EXAMS PUT ON HOLD. Thanks! 2) We have asked the kids to take 1-2 weeks off from running. We will have winter training beginning on Monday, November 23. Although it is not required, we know that it is the best way to make strides in improvement. As we tell the kids “championships are won when nobody is watching.” Our sessions are quite informal and much less time consuming than our in season practices. Please encourage your child to join in.  3) Our team banquet is Thursday, November 19 from 7-9 in the all city gym. All seniors should arrive at 6:30 to help set up. Pizza, drinks, and place settings will be provided. Please bring either a salad or dessert to pass. 4) We had 9 total kids earn all conference first team. If your child is one of those, please note their all conference photos are this Wednesday at Caledonia. School will provide a bus there and back. Please check with the athletic department for departure time. (It will be early as the pics are at 8:00 AM)  5) I’ll end with one fun fact on each team that is not widely known around school. The boys team has won every single OK White meet since joining the league in 2008. The girls team has finished in the top 5 in state every year since 2002 – 14 straight years.  Again, I’d like to thank you for being a member of the team by your support in so many ways. It’s truly a blessing for us.  See you at the banquet, Doug
