THIS WEEK WITH THE WOLVES - AUGUST 22-27

RUSD Athletic Packet (Must be filled out and new doctor's physical)

We finish up summer camp and start the season this week!  Let's do this!  

Practice Monday-Friday is at 6:30 AM from the front parking lot of school.  This is due to teacher meetings  TRAINING SCHEDULE

Wednesday, August 24 is the final time trial. If you have a friend who has not been part of camp but wants to try out, they must run the Time Trial (TT) on August 24.  Meet in the King High parking lot at 6:30 am

To make the 2016 teams, athletes must meet the following minimum standard:
Girls who have never run XC before must run the 3 mile TT 27:00 or faster
Boys who have never run XC before must run the 3 mile TT 24:30 or faster
Veterans of King XC have a mark to meet based on their PR from last season.  See those times here.

Here are the results from the first two TT's we've done this summer.

The ROSTERS FOR THE 2016 SEASON WILL BE POSTED BY WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON. 

THURSDAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF THE 2016 SEASON AND STARTS AT 6:30 am.  Attendance is required for those on the team.  There are consequences for missing practice, so please be aware of our attendance policy.

Thursday PM practice for designated group of 11th/12th graders (TBA) will be at 6:30 PM.  Attendance required for those runners.

FRIDAY practice at 6:30 AM -  Freshmen are excused from practice as we want you to attend "Freshman First Day".  For all others, it is required.

SATURDAY - Practice at 7:00 AM at the Gage Canal.  Attendance is required.

MONTEREY TRIP ROSTER WILL BE POSTED FRIDAY 

August 24 will be the final day to add points for Monterey Trip. There are attendance points August 22-24 and running2win points Monday August 15th thru August 24 still to earn.

After August 24, we'll take the point ranking and balance our hotel rooms among 52 seats on the bus.  REMEMBER -- we have to take groups of 4 per gender to fill the hotel rooms, so the names at the bottom of the ranking (#'s 45-60) are fluid depending on how the genders fall into groups of four (for rooming purposes)

You must have qualified for the team by August 24th to be on the trip, even if you have the points to be on the bus.

We will generate the list of those who have earned an invitation by this Friday, AND IMMEDIATE RESPONSE IS REQUIRED -- YOU MUST CONFIRM YOUR INTENT TO GO ON THE TRIP BY EMAILING COACH PEIRCE AT DPEIRCE@RUSD.K12.CA.US

The price of the Monterey trip is $125 and will be due September 6.  An itinerary and list of expectations will be given out September 1.

MOTIVATION MONDAY - AUGUST 22

By Sarah Boloboltz: The U.S. women won the 4x100-meter relay race on Friday at the Rio Olympics, a day after a missed baton handoff nearly dashed their gold medal hopes.

With a time of 41.01 seconds, the team of sprinters Allyson Felix, English Gardner, Tianna Bartoletta and Tori Bowie bested Jamaica, which took silver, and Great Britain, which won bronze. Jamaica finished in 41.36 seconds, and Great Britain with 41.77, according to The New York Times.

The Americans very nearly didn’t make the final.

In the qualifying round early Thursday, just before she would have handed the baton to Gardner, Felix was hit by a Brazilian runner who had veered into the wrong lane. The Americans dropped the baton, but Felix, displaying a veteran’s knowledge of the rules, told Gardner to keep going.

Gardner picked up the baton and ran. The team finished the race with a time of 1 minute 6.71 seconds too slow to advance to the final.

But all was not lost. “I just know that if something is protest-able, you have to finish,” Felix told NBC Sports after the disastrous first run.

The American team filed a complaint through the International Association of Athletics Federations, track and field’s governing body, and was granted a do-over. On Thursday night, alone on the track, they ran the 400 meters in 41.77 seconds, the fastest in Round 1, just ahead of Jamaica’s 41.79. The Brazilian team, meanwhile, was disqualified for crossing into another lane.

What's the motivation for this Monday?

Do you find an excuse to give up when something does not go your way or do you do everything you can to rise to the challenge and overcome that unfortunate circumstance? Despite the cards that are thrown your way in practice or on race day, are you able to put those aside and focus on the task at hand and race towards the goal that is set before you? As we approach the final time trial, are you willing to do what it takes to reach that standard no matter what comes your way physically, mentally, or emotionally? As we approach the first race, are you ready to do what it takes to make strides toward that season goal no matter what comes your way physically, mentally, or emotionally? Just do it as Nike would say. You got this!

FUNDRAISING - ITS TIME TO GET STARTED ON IT!

Each season we are faced with the prospect that a program like ours is NOT fully funded by the school or the RUSD.  While some funding is provided, we are left FAR SHORT of what it actually costs to have a canopy banner, banquet yearbook, coaches, awards, invitational fees paid, travel expenses, drinks and water at practice, awards, and more.  NONE of these things are fully funded by the school or district.

So, we need all athletes to participate in our fundraising, and we humbly ask that each of you raise a minimum of $125 toward the financial necessities of the season.  

You can do this through a variety of ways.

Here they are:

Business Sponsorship    Friends/Family Donation   

Straight Family Donation of $125.  Make check payable to "King Cross Country Booster Club"

Scrip balances - While this is not a "quick" way of accruing $125, over time, the proceeds that you earn from purchasing scrip from our scrip coordinator, can be donated to the program to help cover all or part of the $125 request
