Region Champs - Girls and Boys Sweep!


Congrats to our team for a solid Region Championship meet on Tuesday!  Both Girls and Boys won the Region titles and brought home the hard earned trophies.  The JV Girls won the meet and the JV Boys were 2nd by 1 point.  Paige Rousey dominated the JV race for the Girls and Mica Rivera was Region Champ.  We saw a lot of good races and several big PRs.  Great job by all!  Thanks to all of the parents and families for your support of these athletes.


What's next?  State Championships are Wednesday October 18th at Sugarhouse Park.  We will excuse the team to go and support our varsity runners that day.  If you cannot go please let Coach Barnes know.   Info on schedule time, State team dinner, and buses will be on next week's post.
Those that wish to continue to train with varsity may do so, or you are welcome to take a break now.  If you wish to go to Foot Locker or do post season races, we would suggest no more that a week off of running.   Varsity will take a shorter break after State.  Please see the Foot Locker Page on the blog and fill out the survey ASAP if you are interested in going to Foot Locker Western Regionals in December.

Congrats to our team for pulling off both varsity wins, JV boys win, and a JV girls 2nd place.   It was an up and down and all around day on Friday for our team, but we still took care of business for the most part.  Now it is time to really focus on our goals for Region next week on Tuesday.  Those that struggled need to get back on the horse and those that did well need to do it again.   This week is a very important week and doing all of the little things we talk about all of the time will be big in the Championships.   Make sure your grades are caught up and you DO NOT miss practice!

Thanks to the Cannon, Davies, Harris, Heninger, Reading, and Williams families for hosting our Team Dinner this past Thursday in Daybreak.
Thanks to all those families who brought post race goodies on Friday to Park City.

So congrats to our Frosh/Soph boys for racing hard and coming up  with a big win.  Good job to all of those who PR'd even in the rainy and chilly weather.  A lot of you did very well, but remember that we still have a lot to do this next couple of weeks before Region.

Now we have had a growing problem, and we realize that it is partly our fault as coaches for allowing it, but a lot of athletes have been taking off early from the meets and not staying to support the later races.  This is something we will change for the future.  We understand that once in a while some of you might need a parent to take you home earlier or might not be able to stay the whole time, but this should be a very rare occasion.  There were a ridiculous amount of athletes that left early last Friday, and not only can the coaches not keep track of it, but you as athletes are not being supportive teammates when you do this regularly.  I am thinking about if I went up to my Basketball coach, as a sophomore, after my game and asked to leave and not stick around for the JV or Varsity games...I would likely have been allowed to go, but never allowed to return.  Remember this is a team and we need to support each other, not bail as soon as our race is over because we want to go do something else.  We really don't ever want to you to leave early, although life happens and adjustments need to be made on occasion, this should not happen often.  We have obviously been too lenient on this policy, something we will remedy in the future.  Those who left early missed the biggest and best race our Varsity boys have had in 4 years!  Our boys beat the American Fork boys in a super exciting and close race.  AF are the defending State Champs and have won 6 out of the last 7 years, 6 time Southwest Regional Champs, and were 2nd at Nationals the past 2 years.  What a huge deal for our whole team!  Congrats boys!  Plan on staying for all of the races at Park City this weekend, this is our last Invitational.
Thanks to Wintertons for hosting our Team Dinner this pastThursday and to Wheelers, Bullocks, and Rays for helping.  Thanks to all those families who brought post race goodies on Friday to Maple Mountain.

Remember to be work horses this week and make sure your grades are up during school.  Be at practice and working everyday.  

Log your miles everyday!

The weather looks better this week but be prepared still.

Last week's UIAAA Invite in Spanish Fork ended up being a great meet for our team.  The weather cleared up and the course was fast and easy, so most of our athletes had big PRs and ran really well.  Congrats to all of those who ran so good.  Now that we have seen you run that well there are no excuses from here on out.  Varsity boys and girls won the meet and both Frosh/Soph boys and JV boys perfect scored their races, and a lot of the Frosh/Soph girls and JV girls had big races.  We had overall race winners in all 3 boys races (Josh, Gable, and Nick) and Mica won the girl's Varsity race.  What a fun meet to watch, if you are Herriman!  Coach Biles posted other pics on the Facebook page of others who medaled on Friday.

Thanks to Lunts, Barneys, and Winders for a good Team Dinner last Thursday!  Thanks to all those families who brought post race goodies on Friday too.

This week we head back down to Spanish Fork to the Nebo Invite at Maple Mountain on Friday.  

Spirit Packs should be in toward the beginning of the week.

Remember to be work horses this week and make sure your grades are up during school.  You should not be missing practice either.
