2017 Season – Week #10

Team –

Great race at Breese Ranch on Saturday!  We had some excellent individual performances and were very pleased with the overall team results.  We are at a great starting point to continue to improve as the season progresses.  The Bulletin didn’t get it right, but our girls finished in 1st place and the boys took second.  Way to go Cougs!  Here are this week’s announcements:

Middle School XC Camp at Pilot Butte –

There is a middle school XC Camp on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 3-4:30 hosted by Pilot Butte Middle School and we need a few of our athletes to help out.  The first 5 sophomore junior or senior JV athletes to respond to this email offering to help will be off the hook for practice Mon-Wed.  You will need to be at Pilot Butte at 2:45 to check in with Kyle Gomez who is the head cross country coach at Pilot Butte Middle School.  This camp is a great opportunity for Mountain View athletes to contribute to the broader cross country community in Central Oregon and build relationships with younger athletes that will eventually be running at Mountain View!  Don’t forget to wear MV gear each day!

The Invitational at Fern Ridge Reservoir –

This Saturday we are headed to the Eugene area for our second race.  We will be meeting in the bus loop at 5:45 AM and will return at about 7:30 PM.  Remember to bring your uniform, racing shoes, a change of clothes, and money for lunch.  Also bring your swim suit for a special stop on the way home!  Meet info is available at https://www.athletic.net/CrossCountry/Results/Meet.aspx?Meet=126950#/Meet

2017 Season – Week #9

Hey Team,

Great job this week at practice!  We are picking up the intensity and mileage and you are handling it great.  We especially appreciate the hard effort many of you put into the workouts on Wednesday and Friday!  This Saturday will be our first race at Breese Ranch, but we will be training through it so don’t worry if you aren’t feeling ready or are tired after the last couple weeks.  Our focus is on the end of the season.  Here are some important announcements for the week!

Breese Ranch

Our first race is this Saturday at Breese Ranch in Prineville.  Please meet at the Mountain View bus loop at 7:30 AM to catch the bus.  I expect we will be back at Mountain View for pickup at 12:30 PM.  The girls race is at 9:00 AM and the boys are at 9:40.  There is a community race at 10:00 for any parents interested in participating.  The course starts on a pasture and at 1/4 mile crosses a large creek and follows a dirt road to a flood irrigated pasture for some wet running. At the 3/4 miles the course starts a 3/4 mile up hill grind on a cattle trail to the halfway point of the race. From this point on it is downhill to the same wet pasture, stream crossing and follows a dirt road to the finish.  Parents interested in watching or participating in the community race can drive there by traveling through Prineville and proceeding 1 mile east of town on US 26.  There will be signs on the right side of the road for Breese Ranch.

Pasta Feed –

We have a team pasta feed Friday evening right after practice at Mallory Roberts House at 62610 Bunchgrass Pl.  We will carpool athletes that can’t drive from Drake Park to save parents some trouble.  The Roberts will be providing pasta but please bring the following:

Freshmen – Bread

Sophomore – Drinks

Juniors – Salad

Seniors – Desert
