Look under team files for updated August calendar. I have made a few changes on practice location.
The Woodson cross country team uses an email distribution google groups list to stay connected. It's a great way for me the coach to email the team but it can also be an excellent resource to parents and athletes when someone is in need or a ride or wants to coordinate snacks for the kids at meets. You can get on the email list by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will direct add you to the group. Once added you will be able to read emails I send out as well as post your own to the group.

Hello team you may now order your team uniform and spirit wear. If you plan on trying out for the team you must order a uniform. The store is closed on the 11th of Aug (after our two mile time trial) in order to make sure we have our uniforms for Monroe Parker Invite. Uniforms won't make it by the 25th for the PR Kickoff so I will give out some supplemental uniforms in the meantime just for that race. The link is below.
Look under team files to find the updated August calendar. Due to the freshman orientation program starting Aug 9th-11th I have changed the two mile time trial date to Monday August the 8th. I have also added a few additional things to the calendar. They may change so keep posted.
