We had a great week of practice in week 2 with some hard work put in! With school starting this week, I expect to see our numbers increase and have the whole team in attendance for practices.
Week 3 brings us our first competition of the season with the Cowboy Invitational out in Prineville on Saturday. With this meet being in Central Oregon, let’s do our best to get as many Cougar XC fans as we can to the meet! The first meet is always a fun way to bust off the rust and see where the team stands. Can’t wait to see everyone compete on Saturday!!

Parent Meeting 9/5: We will be having a quick parent meeting after Practice on Thursday in the school commons. I wanted to make sure everyone was back in town before having a meeting. We will introduce coaches, cover general details for the season, expectations for athletes and how parents can best support their athlete throughout the season.
Team Dinner 9/6: There will be a team pasta dinner at the Swenson’s following practice on Friday. See below for what to bring.

Meet Details: We will be departing Mountain View @6:15am on Saturday. Please be at Mountain View @6AM so we can be leaving by 6:15. If an athlete wants to ride home with a parent after the meet, please check out with a coach before leaving. Also, those who just started practicing last week have the option to sit out the first meet. 1 week of training is not enough to feel prepared for a meet and you are unlikely to have a great experience. I will talk with those athletes and see where you stand on competing. We will most likely be returning to Mountain View around 12:30pm.
