Cross week of 9-14

Parents: What a great day at South Christian yesterday! For the first time in several years both varsity teams took first place. In addition, both JV teams ran great, each scoring a perfect 15 points!  We now turn our attention to the MSU meet in East Lansing on Friday. Our teams will be running in the elite division, reserved for the best teams in the state no matter what their division. MSU has moved the schedule around a bit so our kids will need to be dismissed from school quite early. Here are the details on the day: Dismissal from school – 10:00AMBuses leave – 10:15AM (Kids need to change at school)Girls Varsity race – 1:25PMBoys Varsity race – 2:15PMGirls JV race – 2:35PMBoys JV race – 3:35PMBus leaves for school 5:00PMWe are going to ask our bus drivers to be ready to pick us up at 5:00 sharp so kids can get back for the homecoming game. We will NOT stop for dinner on the way home.  The MSU races are at Forest Akers Golf course. Complete details can be found at playmakers.com/spartan  Remember to leave early as spectators will be shuttled in from another lot. This often takes about 20 – 25 minutes. Be prepared to pay for entry.  We will once again have weights this Monday morning at 7:15. As always we will end in time for a shower and breakfast.  Finally, we will have an optional practice this Saturday morning at 8:30 at The Gainey. (Varsity runners should be there.) Please park and meet in Church of the Servant lot. We will organize some sort of breakfast for after the run.  I know this is several weeks away, but will also be having varsity practices during the break October 22, 23, and 24. This is a key time if we hope to be running on November 7. Thanks for adding us to your schedule. Thank you for your prayers and support. Hope to see you Friday in East Lansing! Doug
