Strafford Cross Country “Fortitudine Vincimus”
Dear Runners & Superfans,
I want to say thank you to everyone for training hard this summer and hope you had fun and are excited about starting the upcoming season. All of you did a tremendous job running this summer and I’m excited to see how well you do this season. Everyone can succeed at running, you just have to stick with it.
Practice for high school cross country will begin on August 3rd at 7:00 am in front of the Max Evans gym and will be over at 8:30 am. All runners need to be sure they have a current physical with insurance information before they can start practice. These forms can be turned in to me, the nurse, or the high school office. No one is eligible to practice without a current physical on file. All runners must have 14 practices before they can participate in a meet or any competition. A student can only earn one practice a day, therefore two-a-days count as only one practice.
Our season kicks off on September 5th with the Strafford Invitational at Fellows Lake. This is our first year to have a meet at the lake and we are very excited about running at such an awesome location. Once again we will need all the great parent volunteers to help make this meet as successful as our others. I will send out more information as the time approaches. The rest of the year’s schedule is listed below.
Remember, cross country is for everyone and with perseverance, hard work, and a positive attitude any student can achieve greatness. Should you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 417-379-6764
I look forward to seeing you out running,
