News and Announcements
Today we will be having a very light workout for the Jr. High and Jv kids. The goal is to have them leaving early so they can rest, catch up/ do homework before this homecoming weekend. Practice will be done by 3:45. Therefore, if its possible you can pick them up around that time. Sorry for the late update. It seems like the right call for today with the temps being as cold as they are. Extended varsity will be doing a little more work than that, but should still be finished by 4:45.
A big congratulations to the athletes and parents for braving the rain and cold today. These are the moments as a coach that I look forward to seeing how the kids respond. I saw a lot of strong character and toughness exhibited today, so well done. It was also such a treat to have Coach Rupp out there today. Meant a lot to everybody. The kids sure showed out for him, fun to watch.
Moving forward I ask you parents to continue encouraging your kids to keep dressing warm, and to be prepared for the elements both at practice and races. We are so close to the end. Lets finish strong.
Lastly, there will be a lot of soaked racing and training shoes. In my experience stuffing newspaper into the shoes helps them dry much more quickly, and even gets some of that bad smell out. Take it or leave it.
Tomorrow’s Tech Invite will be held at the Boulder Ridge Golf Course.
2750 County Road 74. St. Cloud, Mn 56301.
It is supposed to be cold with a high chance of rain. So if you have any waterproof jackets or disposable ponchos, this would be a good time to send with your children.
JV 4:00 pm
Varsity 5:00 pm
Jr. High 5:50 pm
Hope to see you all there.
Ps. Another thank you to the Sia Su family for hosting the spaghetti dinner, and also for all the parents who helped to make it possible.
This year the spaghetti dinner will be hosted by the ever gracious, Sia Su family. Following Monday, October 8th’s practice , we will be heading to their home for dinner. The plan is to be leaving school at 5 pm, and hoping to be there by 5:15 pm. Rides will be organized by the upperclassmen. If you prefer to drop off/ pick up your child the address is : 2613 Meadow Rose Blvd. St. Cloud, Mn. Just make sure and communicate that to your child in advance.
