Cross Country Information

Yellow Jackets,

Welcome to the 2018 Cross Country season. It will be an exciting year this year and a lot to look forward to. I am very happy to be your head coach this year, and excited to get started.  

We completed two uniform pre orders this summer so all the uniforms should be on time for the start of the season. We will open the store one more time in August. 

Our parent meeting will be on August 14 at 6pm in the R-Wing Cafeteria. I will handout the schedule and give out additional key information.
