Lancaster and next week

Hello All-

The plan for tomorrow is that the bus will leave at 9:00am. The meet is at Lancaster High School(1312 Granville Pike, Lancaster, OH 43130). There is a $6 admission fee for adults and $4 for students. The varsity girls’ race (Lianne, Brittany, Kat, Rachel, Danelle, Molly and Hannah)at 12:30. The open boys race(Jonah, Daniel, Jason, Michael, and Ethan)at 1:00. The varsity boys race(Andy, Grant, Collin, Jeremy, Conner, Zach, and Thoren) at 2:00 and the open girls race(Jenna, Lindsay and Stephanie) at 2:30.

Next week practice will be at my house on Monday, J.B. on Tuesday, the High School on Wednesday, J.B. on the Thursday and the High School on Friday. Band will keep the same schedule as they have been. Next Saturday our race is at Buck Creek. Also- the Bennett’s have offered to host the dinner next week but Thursday is the night of the homecoming parade, so we may have to skip this week(they cannot host on Wednesday) unless anyone has a better idea. That’s it for now!

Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go!

Alliance info, etc…

Hello All-

It’s been a busy week, but first of all I want to thank Coach Brent and all the parents who helped to make our home meet a success on Tuesday! The weather was beautiful and there were several comments from coaches who thought it was well run, so thank you. This race will turn out to be a pretty big fundraiser for the team in upcoming years.

Regarding tomorrow. The race is at the MVCTC in Clayton, OH. The bus will leave at 7:15 am. Be at the High School at 7:00. To get there take 70 W. and get off at the Hoke Rd. exit. Turn left onto Hoke Rd and the MVCTC will be about a mile down the road on the left. This year there will be admission  as the MVCTC is now charging the race a rental fee. It is $4 a person for any spectators over 8 years old. The entire boys’ team races at 9 am, the girls race at 9:40. Awards will be at 12:15.

The following week we will be racing at Lancaster. This is a race that limits the varsity race to 7 runners so I want to remind the team that the top 5 runners from tomorrow’s race will be in the varsity race at Lancaster for sure- the other two spots will be determined by coaches choice. All others will be racing in the open race.

If anyone wants to order team merchandise who didn’t get the order in in time please get the order in with money to Coach Brent by tomorrow! I attached the order form to an e-mail I sent out earlier today so if you did not receive it but would like me to send it please contact me.

And finally, the team has been scheduled to work concessions on the nights of Wed. September 19th(boys’ soccer game) and Wed. Oct. 3rd (girls’ soccer game). If you can help out either night please let me know. We will need a few parents at 5:15, and a few more who can show up later.

Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go!

Upcoming Week

Hello All~

Hey all-

This is largely the same info I sent out in a giant e-mail today but I don’t have working e-mails for a few of you so here it is again!

For those of you who went to companies to get sponsors for our 5 k, the only companies I have money from are Drug Mart, Peifer Orchard, Minna Construction, Miami Industrial Trucks, Oak Dale Farms,and Budget Beauty Salon. Please go back to your company and see if they have sent this in or if you can collect from them directly!

In addition to this 5k we also have a home meet coming up at John Bryan Sept. 11th. Between these two events and keeping up with the regular season Coach Brent and I need some help! What I’m asking for is that any parent who might be able to pitch in, meet at the high school Tuesday night(the 4th) before the boosters’ meeting. We will meet at 6:00 pm(boosters’ meeting is at 7:00)and then those who want to stay for the boosters meeting can.

Schedule for the upcoming week:

Sat. Sept 1st-Bus leaves from the high school at 6:30 AM for the Treaty City Invite in Greenville. I’d google map Memorial drive, Greenville OH. The girls’ reserve race (Lindsay, Shelby, Sarah A., Haley and Sophie) is at 8:30, Boys’ reserve (Ethan, Jason and Daniel) is at 9:00, Girls’ varsity at 10 and Boys varsity at 11.

Sunday: Off

Monday: Practice at 9:00 am Buck Creek State Park. Drive into the park past the ranger station and turn right (away from the marina). Turn left I believe at the fourth road on your left and we meet in the parking lot at the end of this road.

Tuesday: Practice after school at John Bryan until 5. Band comes late. Parent meeting at 6 at high school as mentioned earlier.

Wednesday: All practice after school at John Bryan. Practice is over at 5.

Thursday: Practice at John Bryan after school. Band runs on their own this day. Over at 5. Pasta dinner at ?

Friday: Varsity (TBA) will be leaving school after 5th period to head up for an overnight trip to Tiffin. More details on Monday. Varisty band members will need to let me know by Monday if they plan to drive up with Coach Brent and myself Friday or if they have a parent who can drive them up Friday after half time or Saturday morning.

Sat.: Varsity will compete at the Tiffin Carnival.

Whew! Please let me know if there is something I haven’t covered(fat chance:) ).

Besides all of this, thank you for everything so many of you have already done this season! The driving to the park after school has gone smoothly, the pasta dinners have been great, and the tailgating after Centerville excellent. I love cross country!

Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go!

Centerville Updates

As I stated in my latest e-mail, tonight’s bus time has been moved up to 5:15 pm due to Michael L., Daniel A., and Ethan C. now running in the 9th and 10th grade race which starts at 7:05 pm. The women’s open race is scheduled for 7:40 pm, the women’s varsity race (we are running 8 ) is at 8:50 pm and the men’s varsity race(also 8 runners) will begin at 9:25 pm.

The whole cutoff issue mentioned earlier only affects the varsity men’s race so we are good to go.

Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go!

Centerville

As you can see,  the directions to the high school are posted below- not the prettiest presentation, but easy to copy and paste! Also- I want to warn some of the parents that am not certain what time some of the girls will race, and may not find out until tomorrow.  The meet has asked that we limit our entries in the Varsity race to runners running 22:30 or faster due to a loop that doubles over on its self- they don’t want slower runners interfering with the leaders. However with it being this early in the season there are plenty of teams who don’t have 1 runner going faster than 22:30 much less a scoring 5 or full varsity 7! So we’ll just wait and see how this plays out tomorrow.

Upcoming Schedule

 Wow! School has started and the first meet is almost here. I’m psyched! Here’s the plan for the upcoming days.

Wed. the 22nd: Practice is at John Bryan immediately after school. We will likley need one more parent to help drive regularly on Wednesdays. Currently we have Angel R. and Cathy Z.

 
Thu. the 23rd: Practice at JB, band comes late. Right now we have Vickie A. driving immediately after school and April B. driving band late. We will likely need one more driver at each time period.
The first pasta dinner is also Thursday at the Bushnell’s house. Info will be given at practice.
Friday the 24th: All stay at school for pre-race and visualization.
Sat. the 25th: Centerville Night Lights Meet@ Centerville High School! Bus leaves the school at 6 PM.  Open girls’ race is at 7:40, Open boys at 8:15, Varsity girls at 8:50 and varsity boys at 9:25. Note that they do charge $5 per car to help off set the cost of light rental. We will tailgate after the last race so please look at the e-mail Pam K. sent out earlier to see what that is all about.
Next week the schedule is the same as what was given out on the August calendars with April B. and Becky C. driving on Monday and Angel R. and Cathy Z. driving on Tuesday. We will need at least one more driver for Mon., Wed. and Thursdays so let me know if you can help on a regular basis!
 
Please note that we do race the following weekend at the Treaty City XC Invitational @  City Park ( Memorial Drive off E. Water St.  in Greenville) on Sept. 1st which is included on the August calendar! The bus will depart from the high school at 6:30 am with the first race being the reserve girls at 8:30 am. I understand that this was not on the very first schedule I handed out over the summer and that vacation plans may have been made. The ONLY way an absence from this meet will be excused is if the athlete makes me aware of it no later than a week before! So I need to know by Centerville if you won’t be at Greenville.

All right team-
Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go!

Practice cancelled

I am cancelling practice tonight due to the huge line of storms that appear to be heading our way! (All of which will likely begin to dissipate as soon as I hit send:))

There is no official practice tomorrow but please RUN! We are just getting started in our season and taking 3-4 days off in a row is not acceptable!

Saturday morning there is practice at 9:00am at John Bryan then Monday evening at 6:30 pm at my house.

I’ve seen a lot of improvement already in those of you who have been coming to practice regularly. Keep up the great work!

Schedule

Hey All!

Thanks to everyone who attended Saturday’s run and participated in the potluck afterwards. It was a good time and we had many great performances! It was a great way to cap off our team camp week and I am sure those of you who have been running all summer long are seeing drastic improvements in your fitness level by now.

Remember that pictures are today at 3:00. Practice will be held at John Bryan from 6:30 pm-8:00 on Tuesday and Thursday with a return to the school at 7:00 am on Wednesday to accommodate band. Band members- make sure to fit a recovery run in on at least 2 of the three days you are excused from our practices! On Friday everyone is to run on their own then Saturday meet at John Bryan at 9 am to do a long run together.  Next week practices are in the evening (6:30 Monday at Coach Kim’s and 6:30 Tuesday at John Bryan) until school starts. Please note that there is an error on the schedules I handed out as far as the time band is supposed to be released on Wednesdays! Band should be able to get out at the same time as everyone else on Wednesdays which would be 2:30(not 3:30).

Keep up the great work everyone.

Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go!
