Cross Country Follow Up

Again, thank you parents, grandparents, and athletes of the Doherty cross country family for another successful season where 96% of the team had a P.R. at the final meet of the season. It's time to get ready for Spring track as we begin January 8 after school stretching out the legs and easing into the regular season.

We do still have unfinished business for some of you.  After requesting uniforms and bags since the end of October, I have put the following athletes on obligation.  Bag, Singlet, Shorts, Quarter Zip Warm Up Top

The school wide obligation list keeps you from joining anymore sports, dances, prom, or getting your cap and gown. 

If your name is on the list, please come by my office and sign your obligation form.  If you dropped it in my office over the last month, please come clear your name.
