We finished last week with another race under our belts. I think all have finally raced a 5K this season. We had a good preview of all the teams in our intermountain conference at Caldera. The Caldera coaches put a lot of effort into providing a quality race for central Oregon athletes. Your coaches are
enjoying all the PRs (personal records) coming along as we all get in better shape. Cheers to our JV boys team finishing 2 nd in the Caldera race! Thanks to all parents that provided transportation for athletes to Caldera. Thanks to Ezra for getting there early to help coaches with the team tent.
This week we are heading to Lane Community College in Eugene for the NW Classic XC match. We will take 7 in Varsity and the JV Scored races allows 10 entrants max per team.
