2017 Season – Final Weekly Email

Hey Cougar XC Athletes & Parents –

Thank you for a great 2017 season.  It has definitely been one to remember!  This will be the last weekly email – good luck to each of you in winter and spring sports and we will see many of you again next year!  Here are a few final announcements:

End of Season Banquet –

The end of season banquet is at Aspen Hall at 5pm this Sunday, November 5th.  This is an opportunity to recognize the involvement and accomplishments of every athlete on the team and we encourage attendance of all athletes and families.  Most athletes dress semi-formal (no need for parents to dress up).  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 food is only provided to those who have pre-paid. We still need some volunteers to help with setup.  Please let us know if you are willing to help!

Team Uniforms –

If you haven’t turned in your uniform yet, please wash it and bring to the banquet in a plastic bag with your name on the outside.  We will submit the uniform fine list to the front office after the banquet so please don’t forget to bring it!

Winter/Spring Sports/Cross Training –

We’ve talked to athletes about this plenty, but we can’t stress enough the importance of off-season training to maintain fitness until next season.  Participating in a winter and spring sport and running a minimum of 2-3 days a week will make a huge difference in minimizing injuries and improving performance next year.  Running 3-4 days a week and participating in Footzone Tuesday Performance Group (TPG) workouts on a semi-regular basis is highly recommended to varsity level athletes hoping to take their performance to the next level.  To get more information about TPG workouts, subscribe to the weekly emails at max@footzonebend.com

Have a great week and we will see you at the Banquet on Sunday!

2017 Season – Week #18

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!

2017 Season – Week #17

Cougar XC Athletes & Parents –

Due to cold weather today and tonight we will be postponing race start times at the Juniper XC Invite by an hour.  Boys will race at 10am and girls will race at 11am.  With this change in time we will be loading the bus an hour later as well.  Please meet at the MVHS Bus Loop at 8 am.  There will be no bus returning so athletes will need to ride with parents or ask a coach at the meet to help coordinate a ride home.  I could use a small handful of volunteers to help at the finish line tomorrow as Mountain View will be managing race timing.  If you’re available to help please let me know!

Here are announcements for the week:

End of Season/Uniforms –

For some athletes, this week will be the last week of the 2017 cross country season!  Going into Districts we will be allowing any athletes to continue to participate, 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, Friday will be your last practice.  Please bring your full uniform to turn in after practice on Friday.

Central Oregon XC Relays –

Next Wednesday, Mountain View will be hosting the annual Central Oregon XC Relays at Pine Nursery Park in Bend.  Coach Peter Hatton is the race director and is in need of some volunteers including 2 for setup (1-2:30 PM), 4 at finish area (3:30-5 PM) and 4 for race take-down (5-6 PM).  If you are able to help please email Peter at phatton@live.com or call at 541-280-7631.

Meet at the XC Tree after school and athletes will drive/carpool to Pine Nursery Park.  If you’re a parent able to help drive please meet there as well.  Athletes will need to choose teams of 4 for the race ahead of time (signups will occur at practice this week).  Matching or themed costumes are encouraged!  For more race info go to the meet page at: https://www.athletic.net/CrossCountry/Results/Meet.aspx?Meet=130398#/263

Middle School District Meet –

We have several athletes that volunteered to help out at the Middle School District Meet on Thursday.  Large Schools will be from 9:30-11:45 and small schools from 1:15-3:30.  If you volunteered to help please make sure it is ok with your parents and be sure to have them excuse you from school.  Report to Matt Jones (SV Athletic Director) at Pine Nursery for whatever time(s) you’re able to help.

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.

Nordic Team Info Night –

We strongly encourage participation in a winter sport after cross country ends, and the MVHS Nordic Team is an excellent option to consider!  The majority of the cross country team continues into Nordic as a group and it offers a very similar feel to cross country with a positive team atmosphere and inclusive environment.  The Nordic team is focused on new skiers and provides a great opportunity to maintain a high level of fitness through the winter while learning a great skill.  Team equipment is available for use at a very affordable cost and scholarships are also available.  This Monday at 6:30 PM in the MVHS cafeteria there will be an informational meeting with the coaching staff to go over specifics and answer questions.  We encourage athletes and parents to go if you’re considering participating this season.

2017 Season – Week #16

Hey Cougar XC Athletes & Parents –

Great job to our athletes today at the Oxford Classic.  We had some great performances and our Varsity Girls beat Bend High – Go Cougars!  See full results at: https://www.athletic.net/CrossCountry/Results/Meet.aspx?Meet=129443. The end of our season is quickly approaching and we are both excited for Districts and sad to see it all come to an end.  Its extremely important in these last few weeks that athletes make a point of getting extra sleep, eating healthy, washing hands extra (to avoid getting sick!), staying hydrated, and staying on top of homework and grades to avoid any extra stress as we count down to the District Meet.  Here are announcements for the week:

Bigfoot Run –

Don’t Forget the Bigfoot Run is this Sunday, October 8th.  All proceeds from the event go to local cross country programs based on the number of participants volunteering from each school.  We need all athletes that are able to attend this fundraiser!  Please bring parents, friends, and family members to contribute to our overall volunteer count and wear your Mountain View Gear! We will be providing direction and cheering for runners on the course.  Meet at the corner of Colorado and Columbia near Les Schwab Ampitheater at 9 am and we should be done within no more than a couple hours.

La Pine Invite (Wed 10/11) –

I snuck this race onto our calendar a few weeks ago as an opportunity to get a good speed workout in and support La Pine High School since they have very few teams signed up.  This is a 2 mile race on the La Pine HS Campus.  Parents are welcome to attend but it will be a very low-key meet.  Athletes will be excused from class at 12:45 PM and need to be at the bus loop ready to load up at 1:00 PM.  Girls will race at 3pm and boys at 3:30pm.  We should be back to Mountain View at 5:30 PM.  There will be no pasta feed for this race.

Tumalo Falls Trail Run & Team Video (Thursday 10/12) –

For practice on Thursday we will be meeting at the XC Tree and carpooling to Skyliner Sno Park Trailhead and running to Tumalo Falls.  During the run we will be getting video footage for a video we are working on that will be used to market Mountain View Cross Country and encourage increased participation.  Those of you that have worked on team videos in the past should plan on bringing your Go Pro’s, Drones, etc to get as much footage as possible.  We could use some parents to help with carpooling.  Please email me if you’re available to help.  We will meet at the XC Tree immediately after school and should be back to Mountain View at 6:00 PM.

Juniper XC Invite (Saturday 10/14) –

We will be co-hosting the Juniper XC Invite with Ridgeview High School on Saturday at Juniper Golf Course in Redmond.  Meet in the Bus Loop at Mountain View at 7am.  There will be no bus returning to Bend so athletes without parents attending will need to carpool back with coaches and other athletes.  Please make sure to let a coach know at the race if you need a ride and can’t find one.  There will be a single boys race at 9am and a single girls race at 10am.

Pre-Juniper Pasta Feed –

We will be having the Pre-Juniper Pasta Feed at Eliza’s house at 2319 NE Atherton Court.  Please bring the following item to share with the team:

Freshmen – Salad

Bigfoot Update

Hey Cougar XC Athletes & Parents –

I wanted to provide an update on the Bigfoot Run this Sunday.  As a reminder we need as many athletes, parents, siblings, friends, etc as possible to come and represent Mountain View.  Please remember to wear your MV gear!  My original email said we would be meeting at Les Schwab Ampitheater at 8am but I convinced the race organizers to let us arrive at 9am since we are covering the last stations on the course.  Please meet at the intersection of Colorado and Columbia at 9am (5 min walk from the Les Schwab Ampitheater) on Sunday.  Thank you!

Also, for parents interested in participating in the race use the link below to signup.  Also consider sharing on social media or with anyone you know that might be interested in participating (and tell them to select Mtn. View as the primary recipient of funds from your registration).

Green Lakes Trail Run –

We will be taking a small group of athletes to run Green Lakes Trail on Saturday, October 7th.  In order to attend you must be injury free in the last 2 weeks and have competed in a varsity race this season.  This is due to group size restrictions for this trail and the length and intensity of this trail.  It is open to the first 10 athletes meeting this criteria who respond.

Seniors – Salad

Team Gear –

We’ve got a few extra team sweatshirts from our order this season as well as some men’s and women’s brook half-zip pullovers (these are super nice and would be over $100 retail) that we are looking to liquidate so we can use those funds to help with an order for new team jackets for the 2018 season.  These are $30 for athletes or parents interested in buying one.  Please email me if you’d like to confirm a size.  Payment can be made on Touchbase and you can send me an invoice with the receipt and I will bring the item to practice.
