XC Week 1

Welcome to the 2020 Cross Country season.  Patience and Flexibility will be needed for us as we navigate this unprecedented season.  CHSAA gave us guidance late last week.  The new guidelines  resulted in all but one invitational being canceled this season.  Coaches and Athletic Directors are working to give each of you the opportunity to run up to seven races this year plus regionals and state.  The guidelines we are working within can be found at  CHSAA CROSS COUNTRY RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR 2020 .  Please read and memorize these rules.  Meets won't look the same, but it doesn't mean they are not going to be quality.  With fewer runners per race, you have the opportunity for faster times, as you won't have the crowds to wade through.  This Season will be what we make of it.  That's why I know it will be a great season.  Let's get after it  Spartans!

  • Monday: Base runs on your own of 45 minutes in the morning and 20 in the evening

  • Tuesday: On your own, 40-50 minutes running through hilly terrain 

  • Wednesday: FIRST DAY OF PRACTICE. Bring your receipt and emergency card to practice.  @ Doherty 3:25-5:30. 

  • Thursday: @ Doherty 3:25-5:30. Parent meeting in the bleachers on the track at 5:30

  • Friday: @Doherty 3:25-5:30.  Prep for Saturday's meet.

  • Saturday: "Doherty Spartan Early Bird Open" Meet at Monument Valley North near the softball field located below Fontanero and Culebra 6:45am.  12 boys and 12 girls will run in this meet.  Those participants will be based off of attendance the first three days and then off of preparedness to run.  All other athletes will be course marshals then run their practice.  All will help clean up after our meet.
