Volunteers needed

Posted: November 20, 2017 in Uncategorized

Runners & Superfans,

The cross country team is looking for a hand full of volunteers to help stuff race packets for the annual Turkey Trot 5k in Springfield.  We would be working from 2:30-6 on Wednesday at the Jordan Valley Ice Park.  Volunteer would need to have their own transportation to and from the event.  Please let me know if you are willing to help and parents are more than welcome to help out the team as well.

This is in partnership with the Ozark Mountain Ridge Runners running club who have made several sizable donation to the team in the past two years in exchange for our help.  It would be really great of us to return the favor by supporting them in this cause.

Please let me know if you are willing to help by texting or emailing me.  It would help me sleep better and give me an opportunity to start begging if I need to. Text 417-379-6764 or email –

End of year information

Posted: November 6, 2017 in Uncategorized

Runners & Superfans,

First let me thank you for an amazing cross country season and for your generous support of your child’s running and the cross country team.  There are so many ways that all of you have helped and I appreciate every one of them.

I do want to update everyone with the last few items left in the season:

  1.  Run to the Lights: This Friday the cross country team will be attending the “Run to the Lights 5K” at Silver Dollar City.  The cost for the race is $50 and is the responsibility of the student to register and have this paid before Friday.   The registration fee covers entry to the park, t shirt, race, snacks, and 3 hours of park time before the race.  We will leave from SHS at 3:30 p.m.  and it will be after midnight when we return.

2. End of the year banquet:    All runners and their parents are invited to join the team at Fellows Lake to celebrate a great cross  country season.  Plan on joining us on November 12th from 2-4 p.m.  for food, friends, awards, & recognitions.

Coach Fabro will be making his famous chili with all the fixings as well as drinks.  Parents are more than welcome to bring some finger foods or desserts to share with the group.  Following the meal we will have a short awards presentation.

Don’t forget your lawn chair & blanket and plan on joining us on the 20th.

In case of bad weather we will move the event to the high school cafeteria.

Please RSVP by emailing me at or texting 417-379-6764

Thank you all again for a wonderful season and for allowing me to coach your child.  I hope they have developed a love of running as well as some great friends.

I hope to see everyone on Sunday,

Duane Fabro
