Meet Notes – Another new meet for us this season. This is a long-standing meet with a pretty good reputation, and I know some of our other league teams like Wauseon and Delta have run this meet. The Middle School race promises to be HUGE as there are 43 schools listed to participate and they run 6th, 7th and 8th graders. While we haven’t seen the course in person, indications from maps and pictures are that it’s mostly flat with a few small hills. If there is any significant rain in the latter half of the week, it’s a good bet the course will get muddy pretty quickly.
Logistics: As mentioned above, there is a $5 admission fee for all spectators, so please plan accordingly. We are planning for the Middle School and High School athletes to leave separately for this meet to prevent the former from having to stay an extra three hours after their race. The overall race schedule appears…aggressive…given the number of schools involved, so I’m skeptical about the ability to keep to that schedule. For the HS runners, please bear this in mind given whatever Homecoming plans you may have for later in the afternoon. Just be advised that we do still expect all HS athletes to be there to cheer on the runners in the JV race and help clean up the team camp site before leaving.
*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. We will have healthy snacks provided by parents; athletes are strongly encouraged to partake of these after competing.
