***Cooler weather ahead!!!  Looking forward to a great week of practice, but athletes still need to properly hydrate, eat right, and get enough sleep. 

Monday, Aug 31st -  Regular Practice (Monday practices:  Central Park days, expect they won't be done until 4:15)

Tuesday, Sept 1st  -  Regular Practice                            

Wednesday, Sept 2nd  -  Regular Practice

Thursday, Sept 3rd  -  Regular Practice

                            ***Help Requested!  The Garcia Family has been very generous over the years to lead the effort to organize meals in Morro Bay,  It is not an easy task and if any parents are making the trip and could help with the transport of items and/or setting up, they would appreciate it.  Jessica can be reached at or (909) 945-1599.                            

Friday, Sept 4th  -  Regular Practice

                            ***Last Day to turn in Morro Bay paperwork.  If the coaches do not receive everything today, it will be assumed they are not attending.  Parent Consent form, cash and any roommate requests go in a SEALED ENVELOPE with athlete name on the outside.

              ***Gear is in and will be distributed after practice on Friday.

              ***Last day to tell the coaches that you cannot attend the Woodbridge Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 19th.  Please check calendars so we don't waste money by entering you and then you not show up.  That is frowned upon and will result in NOT being chosen for the upcoming league meet.                      

Saturday, Sept 5th  -  Optional practice at Marshall Canyon - 7:00am - highly recommended for blue group and anyone who aspires to be on varsity this season, optional for others.  (Directions:  Take 210 west to LaVerne, exit Fruit and turn right, turn left on Baseline, turn right on Wheeler, park at Oak Mesa Elementary School or adjacent park)  

            ***Run begins promptly at on time***

Monday, April 25


Couple of Things To Remember: 

1.  Missing practice for a club function (meeting, fundraiser, etc.) is a choice you are making and will be counted against you in terms of your 4 days.  

2.  Every week we have at least one person who cannot locate their backpack in the locker room.  Each time, they have put it in a locker and not used their lock.  From 2:00 to 4:00, nearly every athlete on campus has been in the locker room.  PLEASE LOCK UP YOUR BELONGINGS EVERY DAY! 

Morro Bay Info  -  Morro Bay info due NO LATER THAN FRIDAY (earlier is good).  Cash, parent consent form and any roommate requests in a SEALED ENVELOPE with name of athlete on the outside is what we need.  If not received by Friday, it will be assumed they are not attending the meet.  Side note...the phone number for the motel has changed, it is now 805-979-9808.  If any parents are making the trip and can assist the Garcia's with the meals, please see the contact info above in This Week With the Grizzlies.

Chipotle Fundraiser  -  The Christmas Tree Fundraiser may not happen, so we need to take advantage of this one.  Save the date!  Tuesday, September 29th...please plan on dining at the Chipotle on Foothill Blvd. between Milliken and Haven.  We will get 50% of the proceeds, which is unusually high!  More details to follow.  

Schedule Change  -  With ongoing construction at Mt. SAC, we expected our League Finals to be relocated.  The meet will be held at Glen Helen Regional Park on the same course as the IE Challenge on Tuesday, November 3rd.  In addition, due to a scheduling conflict at Bonelli Park, the second league meet has been moved up a day to Tuesday, October 13th. 

The Heat Is On!  -  We can expect August and September to have high temps under normal conditions along with stretches of extreme heat and it's really important that everyone hydrates, hydrates, hydrates.  It's an ongoing process that should be foremost on your mind throughout the season.  Evening, at school, always hydrate.  Please include sports drinks as well and not just water.  Parents, it is important for us to train in these conditions (modified in extreme conditions) to prepare for the strong chance of high heat at races. 

Important Athletics Handout Now Posted  -  Admin has asked that we post the LOHS Athletics Chain of Command handout.  If you have an issue or concern about cross country and your athlete's involvement, please refer and adhere to this handout.

We have three returning captains and three new ones.  Captains are chosen for their ability to lead, whether it is verbally or through their actions or in some cases, both.  Their biggest responsibility is organizing summer workouts and for that, I thank them for their hard work and dedication.

We are going to Monterey!!!
We are going to Monterey!!!


Our meet schedule could look very different this year...there are more questions than answers at this point.  With construction at Mt. SAC and no one knowing the actual impact of it which puts the invitational in question as well as our league finals.  CIF Prelims has already been moved out of Mt. SAC and will be held on a new course developed solely for cross country in Riverside.  Woodbridge has major issues and those could result in a significant downsize or site change.

All of this means a delay in the posting of the schedule.  Some dates are known and will be posted in "Events."  Morro Bay and our league schedule is set!  

One big change...we are going to Monterey!  The Stanford meet in the Bay Area has been replaced with the Pacific Grove Invitational on the Monterey Peninsula and we look forward to a smaller meet and a shorter drive.  

We have very strong captains
