Double Meet Week and August 31 - September 5

If you didn't see before the runner's of the week for last week were:
Varsity Boy - Corbin Romney
Varsity Girl - Milee Enger
JV Boy - Jackson Webber
JV Girl - Madi Tenney

Remember that our Invite is on September 11 and we need to get out and do some work on the course soon.  Plan on bringing tools and working a couple of times in the next two weeks.  Also, we will need parent and volunteer help that day to help run the meet.  Last year the meet went great because of all of the parent help.  We need extra help to do it again this year.

Thanks to the Engers and Hoskins for hosting our Team Dinner last week!  Thanks to all the parents who brought the mass amount of food and snacks to the races on Saturday!  Coach Shaw was super excited about the white cheddar popcorn!

First Meet

Buses will be ready to leave at 2:00pm so be there a few minutes before.  It will be hot today so make sure you eat and hydrate really well or you might have a tough time.  Bring a water bottle and don't leave it or lose it.  Remember those who have not hit their uniform time need to wear a white t-shirt until you hit the time.  If the course today is short like usual than the time will be sub 26:00 for boys and sub 29:00 for girls.

We have parent shirt now and they are $10.  We do have some youth sizes as well.  You can purchase them at the meet from Bart Jorgensen. You can also get them later and pay in the main office and get Coach Barnes the receipt. 

If you would like a parent hoodie they are $35 and you pay in the main office and get the receipt and size to Coach Barnes by Monday.

Air Quality is supposed to be moderate, but they say the smoke particles are bigger and have a harder time getting in your lungs then crappy inversion air.  We can monitor kids as they are warming up, but most everyone should be fine. The race schedule is posted in the previous post.

XC Start, Time Trials, August 17-22

Time Trials will be at the High School Track Monday Night.  Start showing up between 7:30-7:45pm.  Plan on doing this for your Family Night and bring the whole family.  We will introduce the coaches, captains, and team, have a parent meeting while the kids are warming up, and the races will be run under the lights.  The parent meeting will be at about 8:00pm.  Everyone bring a treat to share for after the race (fruit and healthier treats are also good to bring).  You don't need to set treats out until after the races.

Parents, we also have new parent and family shirts with our new logo that you can purchase for $10. 
We are hoping to have the new parent shirts on Monday night so you can purchase them there with cash or check while supplies last, but they may not be done until later in the week.  We still have some Stampede shirts left that we will be selling for $7.  We will have these shirts at the Time Trials. 

If you are interested in a parent sweatshirt for this year we will have a limited amount at Time Trials.  They are an Adidas performance navy hoodie.  We will be taking orders for those this week if you would like to purchase one.  We will be selling them at cost, $35 each.

We also have some Asics women's apparel size medium and a couple pairs of shoes left, women's size 7 only, that we will have for purchase.  Clothing is $10 a piece and shoes are $50.  All sales are final!

Spike Night at RUN GR8 will be on the Tuesday the 18th.  If you are new or need new spikes this would be a great time to get spikes for the season.  There will be discounts on trainers as well.

Athletes need to finish eligibility so they can race at Highland on Thursday, so get it in all together ASAP if you haven't yet.  After you pay for your uniform you need to get Coach Barnes your size.   YOU CANNOT COMPETE UNTIL EVERYTHING IS TURNED IN!

Last Week of Summer and Eligibility, August 10-15

First of all BIG THANKS to all the parents who helped with the Stampede on Saturday!  That might have bean the best parent support we have ever had.   You were awesome!  Good job to the athletes that went out and got good prizes for the race and for all those who helped out.  The race went smoothly and everyone seemed to have a good time.  Thanks to our SBOs for their help too.  Results are up on the Stampede Page.
We still have race shirts for those who would like to buy one, cost is $7.  Also, we still have Asics gear for sale for $10-$15 per item and a few pair of trainers for $50 size 9 mens and 7 womens only.  All sales are final!

Eligibility is due Thursday.  Check out the Eligibility Page for instructions and please get it done.  The Team Disclosure is now on registermyathlete with the other forms.

Uniforms need to be paid for in the main office.  They are $45 this year and sizes need to be given to Coach Barnes with your receipt. Use the office pay form on the Eligibility Page when you go into the office if you can.  This needs to be done ASAP!

Spirit Packs are ready to order next week.  They will be $150 for the pack and we will have some additional items that may be purchases in addition.  More info is on the Eligibility Page.  These will need to be paid for in the main office.   Sizes need to be given to Coach Barnes with your receipt.  The gear is way nice this year, even better than past years and the best swag to date.  We would like everyone to have a spirit pack and you will want one too.  We will not order extra or do additional orders.

If you have gotten a sponsor and have turned the money into the main office then you can talk to Coach Barnes about using it toward Fees, Spirit Pack, Uniforms, etc..  You can still get sponsors at anytime, but we cannot reimburse you for any past purchases after the fact.

Thanks to Jorgensens for hosting our team BBQ!

Coach Shaw is putting on a race on Wednesday night.  We will use it as our double practice instead of meeting at 4:00pm that afternoon.  It is for a charity and registration is only $5.  Go support this and Coach Shaw.  Anyone can run too, so take the family, neighbors, and friends.  They will have a prize drawing right before the race.  Starts at Run Gr8 at 7:30pm, registration starts at 7:00pm.  HERE is the info and you can register online instead of waiting to do it at the race.

Monday - 6:45am @ Monarch Meadows

Tuesday - 4:00pm @ Rosecrest Park

PM- Coach Shaw's Charity 3 mile race at Run Gr8 @ 6:30pm.  Cost is $5 if you are willing to donate.

Thursday, August 6, 2015


Everyone has been asked to turn in 5 prizes from businesses for the race drawing and get 5 people to run the race or kids race.  There are several who have been out working diligently and have gotten some great stuff and a lot of it.  Kudos to you!  However, there are still a bunch of you who have not done anything after being reminded for a month now!  So here is how it goes.  
Everyone who has done their 5 and 5 get to run the race for free and be entered in the drawing.  We will register you Friday at practice or you can do it very first thing Saturday morning.  Saturday morning you will pick up your bib and t-shirt.  
Those who did not get their 5 and 5 will need to pay full price for the race and will be given some extra team service hours to compensate for not doing what we have asked you to do for the last month.  
Every athlete needs to run the race and be there early to help set up before, and will need to help take down after. 
You still have time to get people and prizes.  Prizes need to be turned into the coaches by the end of packet pickup on Friday night. 

We need 2 shifts to do packets at Run Gr8 on Friday.  Shift 1 will be 3:50pm- 5:30pm and shift 2 will be 5:25pm- 7:00pm.  Talk to the coaches if you can do one of these.

Parents, if you are not running and would like to help please let the coaches know or show up and find one on Saturday morning.  We need help with registration before the race, water stop and traffic control during, finish line and results, prizes, and breakfast with the Student Body Officers.  Also, please encourage your kiddos to get out and get their 5 and 5 and not do it for them.  We want the athletes to learn from this experience and take on that responsibility.  Most sports teams ask athletes to fund raise a bunch of money for the program or pay a bunch of money, we are only asking athletes to get 5 prizes from businesses and get 5 people to run the race, pretty simple.  Maybe it is too simple.

August 3 - 8, Mustang Stampede

Parents, please look at the Eligibility Page on the blog.  Everything will be coming due starting next week.  Uniforms and Spirit Packs need to be paid for and sizes need to be given to Coach Barnes ASAP.  Also encourage your kids to get out and get sponsors and prizes but don't do it for them.  

We need to get out this week and ask businesses for prizes, sponsors, and if we can advertise our race with them.  Not too many have been out yet, but those that have have done quite a bit.  We need to hit every business in the area.  Everyone should be involved and help with this race if you are going to be on this team!  We will meet in groups on Monday and cover the area and more.  Plan on helping with this sometime Monday late morning if you can.  We also need to follow up with those who have asked you to come back and not keep going to the same places over and over. 
Sponsor Logos for those giving $200 or more in money or prizes need to be in by Monday.  Email those to Coach Barnes or Coach McKissick by Monday night August 3.
Everyone is supposed to get 5 prizes and try to bring 5 people to the race.  The boy and girl who get the largest amount of prizes will get a free pair of spikes or their uniform paid for.

Get out with the team, advertise, and get prizes!

We need some parents who are not running on Saturday to volunteer to help us out with the race. We will need help with registration, water stops, the chute and the finish line, breakfast, and prizes and awards after.  If you are willing to help us out please let Coach Barnes or the other coaches know ASAP.  Thanks!

Stampede Forms are HERE.  Athletes do not need to register, but need to plan on running and bringing people to run.  You will be registered and will get a shirt and be put in the drawing for prizes when you get at least 5 prizes for the race turned in.  Fundraising forms are on the fundraising page.

We are going to have a Team Dinner hosted by Jorgensen's, 14133 Ensign Peak Cir @ 6:00pm Saturday.   There will be food assignments going around on Wednesday at practice.  Those who do not bring something need to bring $2 with them.
