Meet Notes – It’s hard to believe we’re coming in to the final portion of our season. The league meet is the last race for our middle school runners as well as for some of our high school runners. We are happy to be in a league that allows everyone to run in the same race instead of just the top seven, and it gives some high school athletes that final opportunity to work their way onto the varsity squad for the district meet. Ultimately though, it’s our chance to go up against our league rivals and do our best to represent ourselves, our team and our school. Our training is designed to help our runners start to close in on their peak performance in these next couple weeks, so it’s always an exciting time (often literally) for our runners.
For those not familiar, the Archbold course is run around the larger and smaller reservoirs. It starts across a lower grassy area for about 200 meters before climbing up onto the larger reservoir and running clockwise around. The course then drops down between the two and back up to the smaller reservoir for a counter-clockwise loop, then down and back up to the main reservoir. Middle school angles back down the hill to the finish while the high school does a counter-clockwise loop before finishing. It’s certainly not the most glamorous or interesting course, but from a spectator standpoint you can literally see the entire race without having to move much at all.
As this is the last meet of the season for many of our runners, we ask that all athletes please stay until the end of the meet after the awards ceremony.
