Meet Notes -This is it…the league championship meet! After all the work these runners have put in for the past several months, they finally go toe-to-toe with their NWOAL rivals. One of the great things about the league meet is that we get to preview the course earlier in the season, so the runners are already familiar with the ins and outs of it.  This course is mostly flat with just a few very gradual inclines and declines, so it’s very possible to see some fast times.
We have some talented teams and runners in the NWOAL, but we expect to be competitive.  The top 21 runners in each race earn All League Honors (Top 7 is First Team, 8-14 is Second Team, 15-21 is Honorable Mention). The awards ceremony is at the end of the meet after the Middle School boys race.  The athletes usually have a pretty good time clowning around and even dancing while they wait for the scores and awards to be finalized.  We do of course expect all athletes to remain until the end of the meet.  As this is the last meet of the season for the Middle School, the coaches (and parents) would also like to get pictures of the runners together as a team.
For spectators: The start and finish are both in the same area, and the course takes the runners by that area multiple times, so it’s a very spectator-friendly event.  There shouldn’t be any charge for parking, but be sure to give yourself plenty of time to find a spot at the high school. There will also be concessions, and league meet t-shirts available for $10 (thanks to Brandon Myerholtz for the great league logo design!).
