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
