Coaches Practices - Remember that to receive credit for being at practice, you must have turned in/completed the following:

1.  Athletic Physical Packet  -  You MUST have completed the physical packet to participate in any practice or time trial.  

2.  Team Rules Packet Signature Page  -  The Team Rules Packet is located in the "Handouts".  

3.  Create an account on Running2Win as described below  

The Heat Is On  -  While we are not running in the heat of the day, you still need to hydrate.  Please drink plenty of water and use sports drinks...mix them up (not together)...don't drink all water or all sports drinks, maybe 2 bottles/cups of water, then 1 bottle/cup of sports drink.  We will be running in the heat soon enough and we have to be ready. 

Run-A-Thon Fundraiser - We try to ask as little as possible from parents in regards to fundraising.  If the Run-A-Thon goes well, outside of a few dinners out during the season, we will be done.  Athletes should be getting sponsors before the Run-A-Thon occurs and a sponsor sheet is included in the handouts section. 

Blog Post Worth Reading  -  Want to get faster?  It's not the blog at 

Class Schedules  -  Everyone should have a class schedule and you may or may not have 6th period PE at this time.  Please do not contact the school in regards to this scheduling issue...they will not help you because they must receive word from myself before they make changes.  Every student receives a new schedule on the first day of school;  if you have completed the time trial, your schedule has or will be changed.  Be patient please.  

Logging Miles:  You must log miles for cross country.  It's not only required but it's a great way of seeing progress and motivating yourself.  There's even a running2win app now to make logging easier!  Register now if you do not already have an account.  Miles begin to count on June 1st, but you can start today.  You need to "Join A Team" for us to see your activity.  Directions are below:

1 Go to this Free Web Site:
2.Register yourself with a username and password and some other basic information.
3.Once you've registered, click on the link within the site to "join a team." You will be prompted to enter a Team ID;  it is T-7864100205-20, then click "Submit Request". That sends an email to Coach O who will grant you access.
Fill out your mileage daily!!

Unsure of your mileage???  Go to Google Earth, click on the ruler icon in the toolbar above the image...when the window opens, click on Path, then measure your route and it keeps a running total of mileage!

During this past track season, we revamped our stretch session at the end of practice, switching to lines vs. a large circle.  This will continue in cross country and because of the numbers, we need more captains.  The six captains you see pictured all bring something different to the table.  Some lead by example, some are vocal leaders, but they all excel and we look to them to lead us in the 2014 season.  I want to thank them for taking on the added responsibility, especially the very important task of leading summer workouts.

It's been a long spring of consideration, but Alex Burkhart has signed with Chico State to continue her running at the next level.  The northern California Cal State campus has a long history of success in cross country and they are getting a great one with Alex.  She's been the workhorse of the distance program in track and the cross country team, as well as being a fine student.  Her hard-working attitude and big heart will make her college coaches very happy.  Congrats Alex!

Congratulations to senior Anthony Herchenroeder who joined 30 other Grizzlies to sign on National Signing Day this week.  Anthony will be attending Aurora University, which is located west of Chicago, and will compete for the Spartans in cross country.  After putting together an outstanding senior season, it's great to see a Grizzly continue to compete at the next level.  Congrats Anthony!

Alex Burkhart will be signing, but has not decided with who yet.
