Cross Week of 9-13

    What a great morning of races at South Christian Saturday! I enjoyed South’s new course, although a bit tougher for spectators. I think the kids liked the changes as well. 
    This coming week we are attending a new meet for us at Riverside Park here in Grand Rapids. This meet is hosted by Ottawa Hills and is only in its second year but has attracted a lot of schools. The meet is on Friday afternoon, meaning the kids will be dismissed early from school. Here are the details for the day:
Varsity ( top 10 at this meet ) will be dismissed at 10:50 – bus departs at 11:00
JV ( all others ) will be dismissed at 11:50 – bus departs at noon.
Girls varsity runs at 1:00
Boys varsity runs at 1:30
Girls JV run at 2:00
Boys JV run at 2:45
Return bus at 3:30
Parking is usually pretty tight here, so leave plenty of time to walk to the race. 
    Because we have no meet on Saturday, we will have an optional team practice at Gainey at 8:30. We will buy breakfast food for all in attendance after the practice ends. 
    That’s it for this week. Thanks so much for your support and prayers! We really appreciate it, Doug
