Posted: October 30, 2012 in Uncategorized

Parents & Superfans,

The Strafford XC team is fortunate enough to be attending the state meet at Oak Hills golf course in Jefferson City this Saturday November 3rd.  I have pasted some information concerning the schedule of events taking place and when and where the kids will be.

I also have an image for the girls district tshirts and if anyone is interested in purchasing one please let me know your size and quantity ASAP.

Thanks for all the support from the parents and superfans this year and we hope we make you proud in Jefferson City.

Thanks Duane Fabro

d. When the dust settled Strafford finished in third by 10 pts. Strafford boys did qualify the following 3 individuals: Jackson Eiken 3rd, Bradley Lee 7th, & Zach Reid 10th. These boys and the girls team will compete next week in Jeff city.



Parents & Superfans,

The Strafford cross country team will be competing at the Fordland “Iron Mountain Run” on October 16th with races beginning at 4:00 pm.  Strafford runners will be released from class at 2:10 and will leave school at 2:30pm.  We should arrive back at SHS by 7:00 pm.

There has been a change of location from the high school to a grass course about 1/2 mile south of the school.  The course is located on PP highway south of the school near the Freewill Baptist Church.   Buses will park at the church while spectators will park in the grass to the west of the church.  I hope that those directions get you there.  If not, look for a bunch of skinny kids in short shorts running around in a field.

I have attached the letter I sent home with the kids below which contains further information.


*This is the last meet for jr. high runners and the last invitational for high school runners.  ALL RUNNERS WILL TURN IN THERE DIRTY UNIFORMS AT THE END OF THE MEET.  Please make sure to bring something to change into following the meet.

*Jr. high practices are over for the year.

*High School runners will continue practicing and will race the district meet at Willow Springs Golf Course on October 27th and hopefully the state meet on November 3rd.  Uniforms and warm-ups will be reissued to district and state runners.

*I am going to schedule a practice for Friday the 19th for high school runners at a trail head in Springfield.  This is a voluntary practice only and is not mandatory.  I don’t want to inconvenience any parents with transportation issues.  Times and details will follow.
