First Meets of the Season!

Here is some important information to know for our first cross country meets this week.  Please note, if a parent is at a meet and wishes to drive their athlete home after rather than sending them on the bus, they must sign the athlete out with one of the coaches.  It is expected that all athletes be at the meet, either competing or supporting others, until the last Evergreen runner has run for the day. If you need to leave sooner, please clear it with a coach prior to the day of the meet.

Lake Invitational Thurs. 8/27 (Middle School only)

Lake Middle School
28100 Lemoyne Rd
Millbury, OH 43447

3:15pm – Bus leaves from the Middle School (est. arrival 4:00pm)
5:00pm – Races start
(TBD) – Bus returns to Middle School (full schedule of events was not provided)

Notes – This is likely the only meet where 7th and 8th graders run separately. This course can also be a confusing one, especially for new runners, so we will be sure to spend time on the course prior to the races.

*There may be concessions available. However, we ask that athletes have a healthy snack to take with them and NOT eat concession food until after they have competed.

Notes – Word from several local Scouts who spent time at Camp Lakota this past month is that there are a lot of mosquitoes, so bring bug spray and plan accordingly. This is our first time running this meet, but from past experience at this location there are significant hills and wooded trails.
*There will be concessions available. However, we ask that athletes have a healthy breakfast that morning and NOT eat concession food until after they have competed.
