Week 4 Announcements

Monday, September 4 2017


Info for Week 4 is listed below. We had a great week of racing! The Girls (4th) tied their best finish and the Boys (5th) had their best finish ever at the Lake County Invite on Wednesday. As a group, many of the team improved significantly from 2016 and/ or from the previous week. We followed that up Saturday with many outstanding races on a very difficult course at Veteran Acres Park. Eight athletes took home hardware including Brooke Stromsland who was the F/S Girls winner!

This week we begin our NLCC dual meets. All dual meets begin at 4:45 with the girls followed by the boys at 5:15. Our annual Peoria trip is on Saturday and is always a season highlight. Lastly, we are hosting our team fundraiser on Wednesday. We need all athletes to help us put on the best meet possible.

Please check the schedule here for bus & race times this week. 

Saturday Medal Winners: Boys F/S - Tim Smith(31); Girls Var - Morgan Gillespie (36), Hannah Grant (41); Girls F/S - Brooke Stromsland (1), Alex Bryant (14), Ashley Whitis(43), Tegan Baker (55), & Danika Dortch (70).
