Please note that it will be COLD this week. Tuesday's forecast calls for high temps in the 40s with some wind. Wednesday will be chilly, too. But the sun will be out which means... perfect temperatures for distance racing.
Practices this week:
Monday: practice starts at 3:00, with practice concluding at 4:30 with a group dismissal.
Tuesday: we start with our usual meetings (2:40 girls, 3:00 boys) and will wrap up around 4:30 for all runners. The spaghetti dinner to be hosted in the team room at Sunset is one that the seniors hope ALL team members will attend. It is an annual tradition for seniors to give out awards to their teammates.
Wednesday is our league meet. The schedule is on athletic.net. This is the last race of the season for all but our state team (top 7 boys and top 7 girls, plus alternates). It is the best meet of the season for so many reasons. We hope to see everyone there!

Friday starting Friday, practice is open only to the state team.
