District XC information

Posted: October 26, 2017 in Uncategorized

Runners & Superfans,

The cross country team will be competing at the district meet this Saturday at Clever high School in Clever, MO. Runners will need to be at Strafford high school  at 8:00 a.m. to board the bus for the race.  It will be cold on Saturday so please make sure you dress appropriately.  Anyone who is running and will have cold weather gear under their uniform for the race, needs to make sure that the clothing is solid black in color and can only contain one small logo.  Tights that are above the knee are exempt, as well as hats and gloves as long as they are of a single color.  My gut feeling is that runners will be fine with normal running gear during the race as long as they dress warmly up to the start of the race.

Here is the schedule or the day: (Strafford is Class 2)

Saturday, Oct. 28th– Clever High School
9:00 am Coaches Meeting
9:30 am Class 1, District 4 Girls
10:00 am Class 2, District 6 Girls
10:30 am Class 1, District 4 Boys
11:00 am Class 2, District 6 Boys
11:30 am Award Ceremony ( top 15 runners medal with top two teams qualifying for the state meet)
After the awards ceremony the team will be stopping at Rocco’s pizza in Republic for pizza and all superfans are welcome to join us.
