Wear uniforms and training shoes to bus. Runners should wear an Archer t-shirt – preferrably red, but red is not mandatory.
6:00AM departure from Archer Stadium
Spiked shoes are not needed, so most runners will wear their training shoes.
I would like as many runners as possible to ride back with their parents due to only one bus is staying at the meets to return runners without a ride back to Archer. We traditionally have great parent turn out at our meets.
Please make plans to travel to Westminster Saturday to support our runners. We need you all to get vocal in a positive way during all four races. Get to know our runners by name and say their name once you learn it. They love hearing their name as they push themselves to the finish line. Any advantage helps.
Go XC Tigers!!!
Clara Bowl Berry College meet schedule for September 1 will now be for Varsity only. All JV runners will now have Labor Day weekend free for family travel and activities.
JV will now race at Asics Invitational on Saturday, October 6. All runners will benefit running the flat fast Asics course at the end of the season when they are in much better shape.
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.
Sign up for REMIND to the right.
James Cragin, Myles Collins and John Klima named to the 2017 All County Team with Lucas Bumgarner and Sarah McCartney as Honorable Mention.
Thanks to all runners and their parents for a great year of training and racing.
Girls capped off their season with a strong performance at AREA 1 meet with a 2nd place finish. Girls followed that performance up by placing 20th at the 7A State Championships. Top girl finisher was Sarah McCartney in 67th place,
Boys finished 11th All-Classification team average at State. That places your boys' as an ELITE program. We overcame finishing 6th at the Gwinnett County Championships to finishing 5th in 7A State. Absolutely a big deal. Loved that our boys were the first Gwinnett Co. team to finish yesterday. Something to be proud of, and not to be taken lightly.
The boys originally tied for 4th in 7A, but due to tie breaker ended in 5th place.
Senior James Cragin placed 6th and Sophomore Myles Collins 10th. Both received medals at the awards ceremony.
