Post Meet Coaches Note:
Coaches - Here are the "combined results" for the boys and girls races - hope it helps with comparisons. Mike and I would like to thank you for attending our meet this year, and helping to make it what we hope was a fun day for your kids and your coaches and parents. While it was still pretty warm, it sure felt good after the weekend weather we experienced.

Despite running at the hottest point of the day, the fastest boys and girls times were turned in by the Juniors! Congrats to Preston Norris of Las Lomas (10:53) and Emma Tavella of San Ramon Valley (12:45) for their strong efforts yesterday. Team wise, Dougherty Valley turned in the strongest performance on the boys side, while SRV had a dominating run on the girls side.

The park was really clean last night - thank you for helping to police your areas. We hope the extra bathrooms helped. While we don't have final figures yet, it appears that sales from our snack table and t-shirts were robust. Thank you for supporting our efforts to raise funds for the Hurricane Harvey Relief.

We are always interested in improving the experience at our meet, so please let us know any areas of concern or improvement that you might have for us. Best of luck to you all this season, we hope you'll come back again next year - first Tuesday after Labor Day!
