As you all are aware at this point, at 5:30 on Wed. of last week the SMSD Board of Ed. voted to resume HS sports. By 7:oopm the team was at West for a practice so that we could get the State mandated 14 team practices/9 individual practices in time to race this coming weekend on Sat. 9/19. That was one hurdle we had to clear.

In addition to that, however, we have a few other details that need to be taken care of before the end of the week:

  1. Several athlete and parents have not yet completed the required check-off forms in Skyward.
  2. Several athletes still need to turn in their Transportation forms.

Athletes can not compete until all of this is completed AND PROCESSES by the athletic director’s office. Until that time they are ineligible. Please do this ASAP. Our season is already short enough as it is and we want to give runners as many opportunities to compete as possible.

Many of you have asked about meet information. The meet sheet for this week is now posted on the VRC website under the Racing Tab. Normally our race calendar would have been set last spring, but due to our current circumstances we are having to build it as we go. Here’s what we think we know so far:

2PM 9.19 – SMS hosts at Lexington Lake Park

8AM 9. 26 – ON hosts at Olathe District Offices

10.3 – Either Ray Pec or Baldwin, time TBA

10.6, 9, 10 – SMW hosts at SM Park, time TBA

10.17 – Sunflower League at ODAC?, time TBA

10.24 – Regional, time and location TBA
