The end of the season is quickly approaching! There’s not much time left, but there are a lot of end of season events to note below:

LAST FULL TEAM MEET: This weekend we travel back to Rim Rock Farm for the Sunflower League meet. This is the last regular season meet of the year. Only the varsity team will compete at Regionals the next weekend as we attempt to qualify for the State meet.

LAST FULL TEAM PRACTICE: All team members are expected to report to practice on Monday, 10/15. Anyone not running at Regionals, State or the Nike Cross Regionals meet (more on that below) need to wash and dry all of their gear this weekend and turn it in on the 15th. Athletes can keep the warm up t-shirt you received at Time Trials and the SAVE JCCC TRACK shirts we handed out last week. Everything else gets returned (or paid for if lost).

Back Pack ($35) + Padlock ($10) + Sweat Pants ($35) + Sweat Shirt ($35) + Tank Top ($35) + Shorts ($35) + UA 1/4 Zip ($50) + UA Warm Up Pants ($50) = $285 TOTAL

Everyone running at Regionals, State and/or Nike will continue to practice through the last race of the season.

REGIONAL MEET: Even if you aren’t racing at Regionals we still need you to come out and support the team on Oct. 10/20 at JCCC. The girls team will race at 9:00am and boys race at 10:45am. The top 3 teams and top 5 individuals not on a qualifying team move on to race at State.

STATE MEET: Any runners who qualify for State will race at Rim Rock on Oct. 10/27. Boys race at 11:10 and girls at 12:55.

NIKE CROSS REGIONAL (NXR) MEET: Anyone on the team interested in competing at this meet on Nov. 11 in Sioux Falls, SD is welcome. Coach Onnen needs your race registration form and entry fee ($25) by Monday 10/15 to get you signed up.

NXR Registration

Athletes/families are responsible for their own transportation and lodging. We will have a catered team dinner on Sat. 11/10 for anyone traveling with the team – athletes eat free; parents/family members can purchase meal tickets on line. Much more info about this meet can be found under events on the calendar.

TEAM BANQUET: This end of season celebration will be a potluck dinner held in the school cafeteria from 6-9pm on Wed. Nov. 14th. More info about what to bring will be sent out closer to the date. Seniors should prepare their senior posters to display at the banquet. Any runner wanting to prepare and  give a short speech needs to talk to Coach Onnen ahead of time (This is not open mic night!).
