Cougar XC Athletes & Parents –


A Big Thank You to Peter Hatton and all the parent volunteers for all your hard work putting together the Central Oregon XC Relays last Wednesday! The race was a success and we enjoyed all of the creative costumes out there!


Here are this weeks announcements:

Pre-Districts Pasta Feed-

This week’s team pasta feed will be at Gabe Gonzalez’s home at 62746 Montara Drive starting after practice.  Please bring the following item to share with the team:

Freshmen – Salad

Sophomores – Bread

Juniors – Drinks

Seniors – Veggies or Fruit 🙂


End of Season/Uniforms –


For most athletes, this week will be the last week of the 2017 cross country season.  As mentioned last week, we will be allowing any athletes to participate in Districts, but athletes that continue must be committed to improving as a runner between now and Districts as well as long-term.  This means athletes that continue will be committed to prioritizing workouts and staying focused in team meetings and during workouts.  Athletes attending Districts must also have a perfect attendance record for the remainder of the season.  For those that are ready for the end of cross country, please bring your full uniform to turn in before practice any day this week.


Season Photos –


Megan is preparing a slideshow for the end of season banquet.  If you have any good photos from the season you’d like to share email them to cougarxc@outlook.com – or if you have a large quantity post them in an online album and send us a link or send your student with a flash drive and we will get it back to you after downloading them.


End of Season Banquet –


The end of season banquet is quickly approaching.  If you haven’t already added it to your calendar, it will be at Aspen Hall at 5pm on Sunday November 5th.  This is an opportunity to recognize the involvement and accomplishments of every athlete on the team = translation: Its a long but fun evening!


We encourage attendance of all athletes and families.  We will be having food catered by Tate & Tate (Santa Fe Chicken or Veggie Enchiladas) and the team will cover the cost of athletes.  Please let us know if you will not be attending so we don’t count you in the total for meals!  Attendance by families is free but if you want food it will be $15 per person.  Please pay for your meal in advance through Touchbase.  Payments must be made by the end of the day, this Monday, Oct 23rd to order a meal.


We still need 1 volunteer to bring cake or other dessert to the banquet as well as volunteers to help with setup and takedown.  Please let us know if you are willing to help in any capacity!
