Cross Country News

    We had a great time at camp this past week. I’m sure your son or daughter has returned with many stories and also returned very tired. I wanted to let you know the dates for camp next year so so you can plan accordingly. The high school camp is July 24-29. ( For those with middle schoolers, the camp is July 20-23. ) Camp brochures will be at beginning in January. 
    Our official practices begin Monday, August 9. Our team will meet at the entrance to the stadium at 8:00AM each week day morning. Practice will end at 10:00AM. When school begins, practice will move to right after school until 5:15PM. We will then meet in the AC Gym lobby. ALL ATHLETES MUST HAVE A PASSED PHYSICAL ON FILE AT SCHOOL TO PARTICIPATE IN HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETICS. Please make sure this is completed before August 9. There are several places in town to get a sports physical without an appointment, so please get this done right away. We can’t let anyone practice without this. The physical goes to the athletic department, not coaches, so please turn it in there. Thanks for prioritizing this! 
    I also wanted to let you know I will be gone the first 3 days of practice as Deb & I will be out of town celebrating our 35th anniversary. We will have plenty of other coaches at practice though, with Dan Hoekstra filling in for me until I return on Thursday, August 12. 
    We are looking forward to an exciting season! Please join the team by praying for athletes and coaches. We really appreciate it.
Thanks, Doug
