Howdy XC Gamers,
With summer coming to an end, official Mountain View Cross Country practices will begin imminently. The following are important items to be aware of:
Our first practice is on the first day of school (8/19) at 3:00. We’ll meet after school on the grass field near Packard Hall and behind the new portable classrooms.
To register for cross country, visit the Mountain View High School website. Pay the transportation fee online, but DO NOT pay the fairshare donation (it will be collected by captains in person after the roster is finalized).
ALL athletes are required to bring a HARD COPY of their physical exam on the first week of practice. The form can be found on the Mountain View website under Athletics. If runners don’t submit their physicals before the time trial, they may not run in Friday’s time trial and will not be on the team.
The time trial is on the Friday of the first week of school (8/23) and will consist of a 2 mile run on the track. The top 25 boys and top 25 girls will be guaranteed spots on the team. Depending on the dedication and work ethic of athletes, Coach Blockhus may add runners to the roster at his discretion. For athletes unable to attend Friday’s time trial, there will be a trial Thursday 8/22. If a runner does not run in either Thursday or Friday’s trial, they will not be on the team. The official roster will be finalized and released on the second week of school by Monday 8/26. Looking forward to seeing everyone on Monday!Your Captains,Shannon, Jonathan, Jessi, and Taishannongould02@xxxxxxxxx
