Blue-White-Red Reaction

We have posted the results and after spending some time analyzing the results - we need to step up our practice habits. This week, the coaches will be evaluating the team members to see who will earn the privilege to race in the first official race this coming Saturday. Attitude and effort will be our focus on everything we do this week. 

You can also see the updated groups. We didn't change a whole lot this year as we will wait for a larger sample size. 

If you are in group A or a junior or senior, you are required to be at morning practices as well as afternoon. Those in group C, morning practices are optional. We do not have freshman attend any morning practices. Morning practices now start at 6:15 a.m. Make sure to bring shower items, school clothes, breakfast, etc.


Team Captains

At the team summit, team members and coaches voted the following as team captains: Peter Campbell, Tom Seitzer, Andrew Connor, Will Tampke, Jamie Sullivan, Luke Hupke.


3K Time Trial Results

UPDATE: After some discussion with coaches we have adjusted the groups to try and put similarly fit groups together better.

We post results under the Meet Result tab so you can check for them there. Please note that in these results, it includes an update on groups and which uniform you will get Monday at practice. We have team pictures on Wednesday, Aug. 9th and you will learn more about those Monday as well.
