Eddington Invitational a Huge Success!

Thank you families for your tremendous outpouring of support for the team and coaches, by lending a hand at the Larry Eddington Invitational last Saturday.  We had a beautiful day with six great races, many surprises, plenty of awards, and 20 Personal Records (PRs).

As coaches, we rely (perhaps too heavily) on our parents to help us pull off this major undertaking.  We are thankful to the boosters for helping us with the chip timing of the meet, as well as their covering the concessions this year.  We understand that they had a very successful day, with the trailer, and we're happy about that.  Our boosters have done a ton for us in the past 2 seasons, and to help them get one extra date on the calendar for concessions is a plus.

It's wonderful how our KXC Family continues to pull together and make great things happen.  Thank you to the Pollastrini's for getting us a camera for the video review at the finish line.  And also, special thanks to Mr. Brundige and Mr. Peterson for coming on Friday, to help rake acorns off the course.

When we host Regionals in October, we're going to have a limited number of parking places available for parents, and there will be a meeting on Friday to cover the roles and responsibilities necessary to ensure a flawless meet.  It's our hope that without being rushed to get everything covered in a few minutes before race time, a meeting like this can help all responsible parties have the chance to ask questions and feel comfortable with the jobs they choose.  As coaches, we take the blame in minor miscues, and we will work to make sure everyone feels secure with the plans for that important day. 

Thank you, parents, for your unending support, love and commitment to our program.  You are big shareholders in our season.
