District Recap/Banquet details

We finished off the regular season with some very inspired performances that lead to monster PRs and season bests at the district meet in Salem! Everyone left it all out on the course and that’s all you can ask for at the district meet. Please check the link below to see everyones results from Saturday. I thought about listing individual PRs but it is virtually everyone on the team! So check out those killer times on Athletic.net 🙂 Below is also a list of Mountain View athletes that finished with All-Conference honors!

Mountain Valley All-Conference:

  • Chase Schermer (5th)
  • Cole Shockey (18th)
  • Olivia Carpenter (16th)
  • Emily Moore (17th)

Although our Varsity squads missed qualifying for the State meet by narrow margins.  Mountain View XC will be represented by Sophomore Chase Schermer who placed 5th overall and earned an individual qualifying spot to the State meet! Chase will be racing at 3:30pm on Saturday, November 9th at Lane Community College.

End of Season Banquet-

When: Wednesday, November 13th @5:30pm

Where: Cascade Indoor Sports, Trampoline Zone, 63040 18th Street, Bend, OR 97701

This year we will be having our Team banquet at Cascade Indoor Sports. Thank you to Roberts Family who are generously letting us use the facility! The plan is to have a more relaxed and casual feel to the event and celebrate a great season by having some fun and recognizing everyone’s hard work. The Trampoline park will be available to play around on upon arrival for the kids and there will be pizza and drinks upstairs. The banquet will once again be free of charge like last year (That’s why we fundraise!) We are asking that each athlete bring some kind of snack/appetizer/dessert to have along with the Pizza. Once the kids have had their fill of trampoline fun and everyone has had some food and visited for a bit, we will hand out awards and watch a fun video of the season that some of the athletes have put together. Please let me know if you plan on attending so we can get a better idea of the number we will have. Thanks!

If you plan on hitting the Trampoline park you must fill out a waiver! Waiver Link is below.

XC Week #11: District Championship Week

Here we are! The week of the District Championship has arrived and this group is ready to roll on Saturday. We have been putting in hard work since July and this is when it all pays off. It is just hard to believe that we are already headed into Championship week! I am so excited to see everyone compete this weekend and see what we can accomplish as a team. Let’s remember to “run all the way through the line” and keep doing the little things in our training and recovery routines this week. Throughout the week, ask yourself if you are doing everything you can to be feeling your best for Saturday. Those little details will be the difference makers come race time.

Week #9 10/14-10/20

Thank you to all who came out to the Bobcat XC Festival at COCC on Saturday. Everyone represented well and had a good time racing on a tough course! I had a lot of compliments from parents and members of the other teams about our athletes and XC fans out on the course. Way to represent MVXC!

We are getting to that point of the season where we begin to lower our overall volume. Workouts get shorter and faster, our recovery runs get shorter and we start to sharpen things up for championship season. It is important to continue to stay on top of our recovery routines and take care of our bodies even when we may feel like training is getting easier and energy levels are up from where they have been. Let’s keep our focus and keep working hard all the way to the District Championships!

We have another busy week with Central Oregon Relays on Wednesday and Warner Pacific on Saturday.

Week #8 10/7-10/13

We had a great showing at the Oxford Classic on Friday. We had some PRs on a slow course, along with great team performances across the board! Both the Girls and Boys JV Squads earned a 3rd place team Trophy to bring home some hardware! Both varsity teams placed well in their races, with the Girls placing 6th and the boys placing 8th in a very competitive team race. We are starting to see the hard work pay off, especially now that everyone is starting to steer clear of sickness. We still have some work to put in and some racing to do in the weeks ahead. Remember that everything we do is focused on being at our best on the day of the district meet. Let’s be sure to stay focused and take advantage of every practice to get better. Let’s keep rollin!

Thank you to everyone who came out to help out at Bigfoot! We had a good turnout and you all represented Mtn View XC well. Good job to those that ran the 10k. We had athletes and parents out there running (definitely had the best team representation!)

XC week #7: 9/30-10/6

What a great weekend of XC! We had a ton of season bests and PRs.

We still had great performances and strong efforts (even with most of the team recovering from the plague). Check the list of PRs from the weekend below!

Now we have a quick turn around to the Oxford Classic here in Bend at Drake Park. This is an awesome meet and it is a great opportunity to get a lot loud Cougar XC fans out on the course! Invite friends and family to come out and cheer on Mountain View. Hopefully the Cougar mascot will make another appearance this year! Please read below for other important happenings this week.

XC Week #5: 9/16-9/22

We finally got our 1st race under us at the Northwest Classic in Eugene. We put in some hard efforts against the best competition in the State! It’s tough to open up the season with such large and competitive fields, but everyone handled it well and worked hard in the heat. We ended up having 15 PRs on the day, along with some awesome individual and team performances! Below are some notable performances and fun facts from the meet!

  • Freshman Kyle Swenson ran his 5k debut in 17:58!
  • Senior Nate Robbins Crushed his PR from last season by almost 2 minutes, running 18:48.
  • Sophomore Iris Welsh ran a big PR to open up the season in 23:20.
  • Sophomore Walter Marquez broke 20 minutes in his first XC race! He ran 19:39
  • Freshman Weston Shaffer just missed breaking 20 minutes (20:01) in his 5k debut.
  • The Varsity boys had a team spread of 50 seconds between the top 5.
  • The Varsity girls had a spread of 80 seconds for the top 5.

Very exciting to see PRs, awesome debuts for freshman and great team performances between JV and Varsity! It’s still early in the season and we are just starting to scratch the surface in terms of our fitness and speed, versus where it will be in October and November. This week of practice will be mixed with some hard training and some fun as well. So, be ready to put some work in this week since we don’t have a competition on Saturday.

Well, our first meet didn’t go as planned, but we definitely made the best of it! Thank you all for being patient with the cancellation. All we can do in those situations is make the trip worth it and I’d say that dance party was well worth it! Mountain View cross country definitely provided the entertainment for all. Love it!!

Now we move onto our next meet, the Northwest Classic in Eugene. This meet is a biggie and is held at Lane Community College, which happens to be where the State XC meet is held. It should be a fun meet with great competition! Since we didn’t get to race on Saturday, this will be a great opportunity to open the season with some fast times and really compete against the best competition in the State. There are multiple divisions so it is likely the team will be split up between 3 different races. We will start this week off with a quality workout to make up for the cancelled race on Saturday. Check out below for this week’s details.

District Championship Week (10/22-28)

District Championship week is upon us! After starting summer practices 18 weeks ago, we approach the race that we have been focusing on all season. We have put in a lot of hard work this season and this is where all of that hard work pays off. This week we will continue to focus on tapering, staying healthy and sharpening up for race day. Both the girls and the boys teams have an opportunity to qualify for the State meet. So let’s stay focused this week and do all of the little things to allow us to perform at our best on Saturday.

Just like the Oxford Classic, we want as many Cougar XC  fans out on the course on Saturday. This is a home course for us and having fans out on the course gives us that extra boost! The race for that #3 qualifying spot is going to be tight and having home course support could be the difference! So work on your family and friends and get them out to the District meet on Saturday! 🙂

Thank you to everyone who came out to the Central Oregon Relays and helped out or cheered on the Cougars. Also, a BIG thank you to Peter Hatton for making the event happen! It was another success, Peter! It is a great event for the Mountain View XC program and is always enjoyed by all of the teams that attend. Thank you all!
