Lenee Dixon

The coaching staff (and families) and many runners attended the viewing hours for Lenee Dixon today. We purchased a nice bouquet of flowers in honor of this wonderful spirit, the mother of Shea.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the Dixon family, especially Jack and his children.  Shea's Cross Country family will continue to love him and be there for him.

Open Gyms

Open gyms are upon us.  We are running from 3 until 4:15 after school on Mondays and Wednesdays.  We run outside regardless of weather.  If we can't run outside, we will cancel for the day.

My Surgery

Well, I had arthroscopic knee surgery.  Bummer.  We will, therefore, most likely begin Open Gyms following the Winter Holiday break as I am not allowed to run until then.

D10 Championship Results

On good days, well, good things happen.  And on off days, you have to chalk them up to something.  What could I have done differently?  What caused me to not be at my peak performance?  Why did this happen?

I've never found it very useful to dwell on the "what-ifs."  In the end, you never really know, I guess.  

But there are some things I do know.  I believe in hard work. I believe in overcoming obstacles.  I believe in not quitting.  And I believe that you get back up when you're knocked down. 

Let's see how we respond then.

Until then, here are the results:  Distict X Championship Results (2016)

The banquet is on Nov. 8th at 6:30 at Pleasantview Alliance Church.  

Please bring in all of your uniforms, cleaned and folded neatly in your team duffel bag, by Wednesday.  We are packing them Friday.

Quick Change

We will be giving out banquet invitations to all team members, but please mark your calendars:  the banquet is Tuesday, November 8th at 6:30pm.  THE BANQUET BEGINS at 6:30! It is a dessert banquet and the boosters will provide the cake and drinks.

Senior recognition is tonight at the Girls Volleyball Match. 

AND--we are still going strong heading into the District X championship this Saturday.  We have goals to achieve.  Panther Strong!

Bus leaves at 7:45am sharp.  All junior high runners should attend...

What a great day we had.  Just check out the results.  They are here: Region 3 Invitation results
More importantly than that, though, is this:  we are where we needed to be. The remarkable improvement is because of the hard work you did!  Look at our Varsity Girls' times.  I couldn't be more proud.  What a grand day for our Jr. High Boys!  So close.  And we are so much better. Great things to come.  Very exciting time to be part of this program.

I already miss the junior high. 

Okay.  Now to this week.  Our district race is Saturday. The bus leaves at 7:45am.  We want the junior high to go with us to see what districts is all about.  We are eating at Golden Corral after, so it will be a longer day than usual.  Our booster club is picking up the tab. 

Also, as a heads up, our banquet is Nov. 8th at Pleasantview Alliance Church (on Rte. 86). I believe the time will be 6pm.  More to come on this.
