Great job on Friday at our home meet! The coaching staff was very encouraged to see how well everyone did. Results from the meet can be found at the link below on Colorado Track/XC (CO Milesplit) along with meet recaps, photos, etc.
Labor Day Run
We will not have an official practice on the Monday of Labor Day next week. However, we do have a long run scheduled for that day. Run distances will be updated in Final Surge by the end of the week. Call your teammates up if you would like to run with someone, or go out and get it in on your own that day.
2021 Fundraising Opportunities
Why do we need to Fundraise?
- The school district provides funding for two coaching positions during the XC season (Coach Dalby and Coach Selle). However, as a program we are responsible for coming up with the funds to pay our assistant coaches a full stipend for the fall cross country season (Coaches Lowell, Palmer, and Brandt)
- $7,000 to cover the stipends of our three assistant coaches on staff this season.
- Donate to our MVHS XC Booster Club at the link below! Any amount helps.
- Kathy Adams has volunteered as the Booster Club Chair for Cross Country. Every Dollar donated is earmarked for Cross Country. If you have any questions you can reach out to Kathy Adams via email- firstname.lastname@example.org
- If donating to the Booster Club is not possible we also offer a second fundraising option for families to help support our team through our King Soopers/Safeway grocery card program. Please see the link below for more information.
