Athletes and parents there will be no morning or afternoon practice this Friday! Athletes have optional swim practice on Friday NO RUNNING!!!!!! Most of the kids are pretty beat up and need the rest so I am making a mandatory no running or workout day. Go to the pool or play Frisbee...have a play day.
We will have Saturday morning practice at 10 am meet on the track.
Athletes have been given Fan Cloth fundraiser catalogs these will be due September 18th this is different then the compression uniform short order. Please make check out to Fan Cloth not Ragsdale or me.
A couple of things for tomorrow’s meet. It looks as though we will not be able to run until 6:00 due to the weather. As such, we will do what we did last year and just run the boys and girls together starting at 6:00. We will leave RHS at 4:00.
Parents will park in the gravel lot at the course, the lots down at the soccer fields and baseball fields and in the field across the road. There will be no parking along Beeson Road. There will be an officer there making sure.
Parents we do not need any snacks for tomorrow we have a lot left over from the Jungle run we will need some parent volunteers to help marshal the course and work the finish line.

Dear Parents I need to know 100% who is going to the meet Saturday. If we have any JV kids the bus will leave at 3:00 for the 6:15 race. If we only have Varsity we will leave at 5:30 for the 9:00 boys championship race 9:40 girls championship race. We will not be home before midnight. Kids need to bring money for food and healthy snacks. We will not stop anywhere on the way home too late! I imagine they will have concessions and t-shirts for sale.
