Celebrate St Patrick's Day with us! But don't wear green!


We need help with marshaling our course tomorrow in our races against Westview. And the bleachers will be open again for spectating.


Sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080C4BACA82FA5F85-sunset1


Schedule:

4:00 - girls 3k

4:30 - boys 5k

5:00 - coed 5k


NOTE: The message sent by our district about larger limits on spectators only applies when the spectating groups have both (a) their own entrance and (b) their own restroom facilities. We can only offer one of these options so are still required to limit the size of our spectating group. Having said that, we didn't use all of our spots two weeks ago so we're hoping that we see more tomorrow!

Week 4 practice schedule:


We are asking ALL athletes to be a part of practice each of the 5 days next week. We expect to see every athlete every day, except in situations where coach and athlete have agreed that a day of rest or crosstraining away from campus is best. This decision requires communication with coaches and is not made unilaterally.


Please arrive daily to Sunset NO LATER than 3:00 pm to complete check-in so that we can begin practice in a timely manner.


Spring Break:

We plan to host formal practice on Tuesday and Friday. Athletes will be giving training plans for the other days on Canvas. Athletes are encouraged to find teammates to run with on these "off days" when this is an option.


Wednesday 3/17 meet against Westview:

Some details are still being worked out but the first race will start at 4:00pm with athlete check-ins to start at 2:45pm. The remaining details will likely be ironed out by the start of practice on Monday and will be communicated to athletes directly, and using Canvas.

Spectators:

You have likely heard that there is a new way to "count" spectators. It is more complicated than it seems. I'll have more information tomorrow and will reach out for spectators and course marshals tomorrow. Thank you for your patience.


Stay vigilant in preventing the spread of COVID in our community!

Thank you!

Week 3 practice schedule:


We are asking ALL athletes to be a part of practice each of the 5 days next week. We expect to see every athlete every day. Please see the note about attendance from this earlier post: https://www.sunsettrack.com/post/xc-week-2-plans.

Please arrive daily to Sunset NO LATER than 3:00 pm to complete check-in so that we can begin practice in a timely manner.


Lower volume runners can expect to finish between 4:30 and 4:45 on Tuesday and Friday, 5:00 on Monday and Thursday.


Some of our runners who are managing injuries may be dismissed earlier. Some runners who are managing injuries are being instructed to remain home from practice until their injuries allow them to participate. Most years, we have indoor crosstraining options. Not this year.

Week 2 notes:


This past week was great!!! I am so proud of our team for how they acted and competed on Wednesday! Especially how they conform to the mask-wearing rule! It was also so wonderful to have had parents on campus as spectators. You can see some pictures from the day posted to our instagram account: @apollosxc.


This season has been going better than any of us could ever have imagined. We are learning every day that there are issues that we never knew that we might encounter. But the athletes have been phenomenal, especially in their willingness to follow social distancing and masking rules.


We are also so grateful for the generous parent efforts this past week to provide the goodie bags at Tuesday's practice. The kids loved the attention and effort. Coaches, too. Thank you!

Wednesday 3/10 meet against Mountainside:


On Wednesday, ALL athletes check-in at Sunset between 2:15 and 2:25. DO NOT BE LATE.


Two buses will be provided for athletes with a maximum capacity on each bus of 40 individuals. We expect that the bus will return to Sunset at about 6:00pm.

For those wishing to drive separately, here are the requirements:

  • Families must fill out this BSD form, sign it, and return it to Coach Neeway (we can accept paper in person at practice or electronic submissions via email). Link to the form

  • Athlete must complete the COVID check-in with the team at Sunset

  • Families can leave Sunset when team loads the bus

  • Athletes driving separately must enter and depart the away facility at the same time as the team on the bus

If you have questions about the policy, please ask.

There will be no spectators on Wednesday as we are the visiting team.

Results will be posted here: https://www.athletic.net/CrossCountry/meet/188259/results


On last thing:


We just want to remind everyone about the high stakes of irresponsible behavior this spring. You may or may not have heard about the shutdowns at Lake Oswego HS this past week. It would be horrible for our shortened season to become even shorter... We want to remind every member of our team and community to continue following best practices for masking up and social distancing. This would include things like team dinners: as much as we all look forward to the day that we can get together this way, we are asking that families refrain from planning or organizing events like these during our season.


Thank you!
