MCC Thanks and CCC: Sept 25 - 30


First, a huge thanks to all the parents who pitched in to make the Midwest Catholic events a big success! Special thanks to Karen Connair who organized and led the pasta dinner and the concession stand. Karen has done this for a few years now. At the end of the season, we will be seeking parents to take on some of the bigger roles for next year. Please consider stepping up.

Second, congratulations to our runners who raced hard in the tough conditions and represented CCC well. Our ladies team ran their best race as a team, handily beating a few of our Greater Catholic League rivals and placed 4th out of 10 in the Silver division. The guys took runner-up in the Gold division as well as overall in the field of 17. only 4 points behind St Edward. I'll have more on the races after I get a chance to study the results a little closer.

And lastly, here is the plan for this week:

Mon Sep 25: Carroll 3:45 - 5:45

Tue Sep 26: Carroll 3:45 - 5:45

Wed Sep 27: Carroll 3:45 - 5:45

Thur Sep 28: Group A practice only (we may add some people to Group A and will let them know tomorrow). Group B has the day off. Group A will meet at the tree at 3:15 and carpool to Forest Field Park.

Fri Sep 29: There is no school, but we are having an optional field trip to watch the All-Ohio Collegiate Cross Country Championships. Nearly every college in Ohio (~40) come to Cedarville to compete. Recent Carroll graduate, Mike Laughlin and his Dayton Flyer team will be competing. I am trying to get a bus for us to go and will let you know soon. Here is the tentative schedule:

12:00 - Load the bus at Carroll

2:00 - Men's Race

2:45 - Womens Race

~4:00 - Arrive back at Carroll

Sat Sep 30: Practice (location TBD) 9:00 - 11:00.

Great week for training!
