1st Mile, 2nd Mile, and Total:
Great Job Everyone. It was a hot one out there! Make sure you are re-hydrating and getting a good meal tonight. Short 3 mile run Friday for everyone. We will play ultimate frisbee after the run for anyone who want to.
We will not be going to the Berry Invitational.
It regrets us to inform you we will not be going to the Berry Invitational this year. After careful consideration we have decided that the best option for both teams to focus on our 1st CCCL meet August 28th. If we had gone with the schedule as planned, both teams would have raced Thursday evening and then turned around and raced again early Saturday morning, which would have given them less that 48 hours of rest and recovery. We felt that asking the team to "hold back" and not go all out on their 1st race of the season was wrong and contrary to everything they know. Also, when looking at the season as a whole racing back to back in August doesn't line up with the goals of the team for late October and Early November.
However, we will have a team practice that morning (August 30th). Look for a post early next week with the details of where and when.
The 2014 cross country season got off to a great start tonight at Baylor. Our Girls and Boys teams rocked! Tonight's relay results:

Our sportswear is live on www.gosmeagles.com. There is a wide variety of apparel that will hopefully appeal to everyone. The one item we would like for all team members to have, if possible is the Holloway jacket and pants. However, it is not required. This will serve as our warm-up for this season and next year. Happy Shopping!!
Practice is on for day. Hopefully the bad weather will hold off long enough. Remember if you hear thunder head to the pavilion immediately!
