We need you!

We have another red wagon to haul table and two banners to meets for someone to be in charge for the rest of the season.

Just step right up and volunteer to do that. It will take up very little room in your garage and you just need to have it there when the runners arrive or slightly before.

Shout out to the Beson family for being tent masters!!  It was so nice seeing the sight of the big red tent as we pulled up first thing.

Championship division

The championship division is for coaches that want their teams and athletes to run against the best competition. It is up to coaches to choose if their teams will participate in this division. Hopefully the best teams and athletes will be represented in this race. 

Awards

Top 15 boys and girls finishers in each race will receive medals. Awards will be given as soon as we have results, which will be about 15-20 minutes after the girls race in that division. We will do awards in front of the pavilion. The top 3 teams in the varsity races will receive trophies. 

**There will be a $5 charge per person for admission. GHSA passes and athletes are free.

Need parents to spread out around course to encourage all runners Varsity and JV.

Yell “Go Archer” if you do not know the runners name. You don’t need to be at or so near the finish line. Too many parents/fans from other schools are there to drown out your voice.

Better to encourage our runners where there are less folks. That is where high school runners tend to slow down. They don’t need long areas with no encouragement.

Runners should wear an Archer t-shirt when not racing– preferably red, but red is not mandatory.

Double check to make sure you have your correct uniform - Varsity runner MUST wear the new uniforms and all match.

Spiked shoes are not needed, so most runners will wear their training shoes.

PRACTICE - RUN RUN RUN!!

Tiger XC practices every day after school. Pick up in student parking lot - 4:30 most days (4:00 the Fridays before  meet). Bring a water bottle and be ready to run and lift upper body weights.

Please bring Archer Physical Form completed asap. I will also take $150 annual booster club fees.

Please see the abbreviated XC  Handbook under the TIGER XC tab.  Additional important XC information to be added as we move forward.
