Preseason Week 1 Recap & Week 2 Information

The first week of the 2019 XC season has come to a close.  Great job to all runners that came!  We learned a fantastic new stretch routine and completed our first all-team workouts after a long summer filled with mileage.  On Friday, all runners competed in a prediction run, something that has become a preseason tradition.  John Galligan and Katya Scott were both only eight seconds off of their predicted time!  Afterwards, runners were treated to a bagel and chocolate milk breakfast.  The girls’ team will meet on Saturday for practice.  On Sunday the top 14 are advised to cross train.  Cross training is suggested but not required for the rest of the girls’ team if possible.  For the boys’ team, varsity runners should run both Saturday and Sunday with one long run.  JV and new runners on the boys’ team should take one day off and do a long run the other day.  Remember, your long run should be your longest run of the week.  Next week we will meet at the high school grass field at 8:00 AM.  The team will preview race courses from Tuesday to Friday.  Any runners that haven’t turned in their forms need to do so immediately.

Preseason 2019 Information

I hope that everyone has had a wonderful summer full of adventure and fun.  Preseason starts this Monday, August 12th at 8:00 AM.  We meet at Haverford college directly behind Elwell Field.  I have attached the satellite image of the exact meeting spot above.  We hope to see everyone there.  If you cannot make it, please contact a captain or coach if you have not done so already.  Remember, all forms should be turned in on Monday and links to the forms can be found under the “Cross Country 2019” page.  Time to get excited for a great season ahead!
