Week 15 (10/1-7)

We had 21 PRs this weekend between Nike XC and the Madras invite! The team is still trying to get over sickness that is going around, but everyone still competed hard and looked great. Check out our top performance from the weekend below!

We have 1 month left in the regular season, which means we have to focus on staying healthy and make sure we are taking care of ourselves. We are in a good place as a team right now. So let’s keep doing the little things that keep us healthy and strong (Sleep,Healthy Diet, Hydrate, Foam rolling, Etc). This is the final push to sharpen up and get faster before the district meet. Let’s stay focused and committed. Check out some important details for the week below.

Bigfoot 10k Sunday 10/7

This Sunday 10/7, we will be helping out at the Bigfoot 10k run. This is an event that supports all of the XC programs in the Bend-Lapine school district. We will be in charge of the area leading up to the finish area and will be meeting at River Bend Park at 9am to get instructions. The race directors would like the athletes that aren’t needed on the course to participate in the race if you want! It would just be an easy run for you. They are offering a special $10 race fee originally $40 for Students. Use the code XCATHLETE for online entry. Parents are strongly encouraged to participate. Numbers are down from last year, so they could use all the sign-ups they can get!

Team Dinner

This weeks team dinner will be at Wyatt and Annika Goff’s house on 10/4 after practice. Address: 20745 Kilbourne Loop






Oxford Classic

The Oxford Classic is this Friday at Drake Park. This is a great opportunity for us to get as many of our parents and supporters out on the course. This is basically our only “home meet” besides the District meet. So let’s get a lot of Cougar XC fans out there and cheer loud!

Students will be excused from class at 11am. We will meet at the XC tree and carpool to Drake park. If parents can help drive that would be great! Below is the race schedule for Friday.
