There will be an interest meeting for the upcoming 2016 season on Wednesday May 25th at 3:15pm in room C123 (health room across from the aux gym). It is for both boys and girls who intend to tryout for the 2016 CC season. If you can not make the meeting stop down to the gym and see me or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get you the information. Go Cavs!!!!!!!!!
Due to the weather the conference 7 CC championships have been moved to Thurs Oct 29th.
Today the WTWXC team took part in an early season scrimmage vs TJ at the history Burke Lake XC course. The rain held off but the muggy conditions were not favorable. The Cavaliers took the number one spot individually in both races with Katy Lobeda and Bobby Lockwood finishing first against some stiff competition. The boys looked great against a strong TJ team that will most definitely qualify for states. The boys ran the scrimmage more as a workout, sticking together through the mile with some solid pack running that will for sure pay off come conference time. They finished 1st, 4th, 8th, 10th and 13th with the top five all under 18 minutes. The ladies just flat out dominated coming in 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th. This was all done missing two runners who were in the ladies top three last year! This could be the start of something big! I will be posting results for our team tomorrow after I clear up a few place discrepancies.
So that I can make up some time trials practice will be on your own for this coming Saturday Aug 22nd. If you need me I will be at the track from 8am-9am.
We will again be having a jog-a-thon under the lights at WTW stadium on Monday Aug 31st from 8pm-10pm. Information about the event as well as the pledge flyer can be found under team files.
Please look at team files for the document with the information about Thursdays scrimmage.
Our very own Cross Country standout Bobby Lockwood will be recognized this Sunday 6pm at TC Williams HS as one of the best Cross Country runners in the Metro area! The event is put on through Pacers Running Store and Run Washington Magazine. Parents, friends and teammates are all invited. Check out the link for more information. Congratulations Bobby!
Just as a reminder we will have our team pictures on Friday after practice at 9:30am so we won't be done till 10am. For those that need uniforms, I will provide a uniform for the picture. We have tops for both boys and girls but few shorts so If you need can please wear navy blue, white or gray shorts if possible. I will be providing the uniforms after practice Thursday as well as after our practice on Friday before the picture. We will be short on time Friday so please plan to get the uniform on Thursday if possible. You will be finishing practice a bit later if you need to get a uniform from me.
Because of the second TT being this Thursday I have extended the ordering time for the uniform till Thursday night at midnight.
Meet the coach night will be this Thursday August 13th at 6pm in the auditorium.
The flyer is under team files.
Parents I am having issues with my Google Group Mail (it seems our team is too large to handle, ha!) So I will be posting to this web page as well as sending information out on Twitter till I find a workaround. Please email me if you have any questions about the season.
Look under team files to order the uniform. ALL ATHLETES MUST ORDER A UNIFORM. Uniform orders are due Wed the 12th of Aug at midnight.
Practice is canceled for Friday Oct 2nd due to severe weather conditions. I have posted the workouts for the weekend on the google group page.
Team just a reminder we are at Wakefield Park at 7am tomorrow the 15th and Monday the 17th at 7am. We meet right next to the softball fields and bathrooms in the first large parking lot on the left after entering the park from Braddock Road.
