All athletes (not just varsity athletes, ALL ATHLETES) should report to the park by 7:00 am. The first race is scheduled for 7:50.
This meet allows us to determine our Varsity sevens for the Bronco Invite next weekend, gives our entire team a chance to race – because racing is the best way to get better at racing. The race is three miles on flat, winding decomposed granite paths.
Parents are needed as course marshalls – please see Coach Kaitlyn the morning of the race.
There will be a small shared meal after the race (contact Mrs Kidd to donate food), and we’ll also our distribute our white varsity shirts for the first time.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE
GHS XC Alumnus Chris Vega has been battling leukemia for the past year. Our team has helped ease the Vega family’s burden with donations of money and gift cards as well as positive thoughts and prayers.
About a week ago, after several months of progress that had everyone expecting Chris to return home soon, he contracted pneumonia, and subsequently his overall health took a drastic turn for the worse. The last couple days have brought news of steady improvement, and hope of continued healing.
Since Chris remains in critical condition, his family is spending nearly all of their time by his side. So let’s mobilize once again to let Chris and his family know how much we care. The team will be collecting money at Saturday’s race – any amount will be gladly accepted. Gift cards to local restaurants help the family eat on the run between home and hospital; so those are helpful, too. And bring a Sharpie, because you’ll want to sign the cards we’ll send to Chris.
