Week Three Updates
First, please note the exciting additions to our meet schedule. I was bummed to see that the Mayor's Cup Races had been cancelled, but it looks like the kids will have no shortage of quality racing experiences. We are tentatively planning on the USATF J.O. preview meet in Amherst as a replacement to Mayor's Cup. More to come on that. I am happy to finally post some results from our first "time trial" of the year. Last Friday (9/14) we headed over to the RMHS track for an early season 1-mile test to gauge everyone's early fitness. There were lot's of strong finishes and happy faces afterwards. Congrats to our top runners Charlie Donahue (6:18) and Cat Almeida (7:46) leading the pack. Parker Middle School (22 points) edged out Coolidge Middle School (34 points) in the combined B/G "team" scoring. Next up is a 2km scrimmage with Austin Prep this Friday, September 28th at the RMHS track. Racing should begin around 3:30pm.
