Informational Meeting Date Change

posted May 21, 2018, 6:23 PM by Micah Mobley

The previously announced date for the Informational meeting ended up not being workable.  I apologize for any inconvenience, but the meeting will be moved to WEDNESDAY MAY 23rd, after school, meet in the EHS commons. (That is the big, main lobby as you go in the front of the school).  We will meet there and then move to Mr. Ratliff's classroom for the rest of our meeting.  We would like to start the meeting by 2:45 The meeting should conclude by 3:15.  

There will be no obligation if you attend.  We simply want to give anyone a chance to hear what we are looking forward to for the 2018 season, and see if you think it is something you would want to be a part of.   All ability levels are welcome.  

Upcoming Dates

posted May 14, 2018, 10:19 PM by Micah Mobley

Hard to believe that the time is here to start marking calendars for XC events, but it is here!  There are a few dates that will be important to get on our collective radar. 

Wednesday (May 16th) is the junior high  track team's end of the year celebration.  I will make a brief appearance.  So as to not get in the way of their celebratory moment, I will just pass out some info about our meeting on the 22nd and some general summer running info. 

Tuesday (May 22nd) is the call out meeting at the high school.  We will find a meeting room at the high school and meet for about 30 minutes to get some info out and get the summer off on the right foot. 

Monday (May 28th) is the first date for our summer miles recording.  There are 13 weeks in our plan for summer, and much of it is flexible and worked around your schedule, especially in the first four or five weeks. 

July 9th-12th is the 2018 XC Camp!  Check the XC Camp page for more info on that, but we would love to see as many of our team as possible to be there.  It is a great time, that includes some important bonding time for the team.

If there are questions and/or suggestions, please feel free to reach out.

XC Camp Date Reminder.

posted May 13, 2018, 9:13 PM by Mustang TrackXC   [ updated May 13, 2018, 9:14 PM ]

MONDAY JULY 9th through THURSDAY JULY 12th

As we have done for the past four years or so, we are heading to camp the week that follows moratorium week, from Monday through Thursday.  This is an important time for our team, and all athletes are encouraged to attend.  This is always a time where we get some quality training-focused time, but it is also a time when the team really bonds and starts to form our identity for the upcoming season.  

Full details are posted on our XC Camp Page, including the waiver and the checklist. 

Please make sure all paperwork, including an updated physical, is completed well in advance of this time. 

If any parents are interested in coming down for portions of the trip to help prepare meals and things like that, feel free to reach out. 

WIC INFO

posted Sep 29, 2017, 10:47 AM by Mustang TrackXC

It is kinda unbelievable how fast this season has flown by!  We are already at the WIC meet, when it seems like such a short time ago we were getting together at Lake Griffey for the Hill Challenge, or at McCormick's creek to run and then jump in the waterfalls!  This group has grown a lot and done some incredible things as the season has progressed.  It is going to be exciting to see them work towards one of their team goals that were laid out early in the summer, this Saturday at Cascade.  

All info is attached here, with schedules and awards info...hopefully we are bringing some of that back home! :) 

BNL Meet Notes

posted Sep 22, 2017, 1:05 PM by Mustang TrackXC

Hey Gang.  Fall Festival time is here!  Since that is a major event for our community, we will make some adjustments to our plans.  

One, the kids have always loved running to the Fall Festival on this Friday...they did so again today!  Honestly, that was a longer run than I had planned, given what they did yesterday (which was awesome, by the way!).  But they are strong kids and will be fine. 

Saturday morning we can not meet at the High School.  This year we are going to meet in the back parking lot of EPS.  The kids already loaded up the gear into my truck and we will be meeting at 6:45 AM to load and head out to BNL.  

After the meet, we will stop at the Golden Corral and smash some buffet!

Crawford County

posted Sep 15, 2017, 10:53 AM by Mustang TrackXC

Crawford County Invite time!!! This meet is usually one of the kids' favorites.  It is a beautiful course, with a cool meet setup, and a great tradition of the Overlook restaurant afterwards.  Parents, y'all are welcome to join us for lunch.  All info is attached to the document here in this announcement.  

All athletes need to be at the school at 6:45 so that our bus can leave at 7:00.  It is about a 2-hr drive from here, so we really need to make sure we are getting out of here with time in case we hit traffic or construction or something like that. 

****PLEASE NOTE*****  This is Crawford County (Marengo, IN),  NOT CRAWFORDSVILLE.

Journal Help

posted Aug 23, 2017, 2:49 PM by Mustang TrackXC

Hey parents and other team supporters:  Want a way to participate and help spread the word about what fantastic things our group is doing?!  Here is a great opportunity to do that and help our local resource (Ellettsville Journal). 

After speaking to staff members of the Journal, they are interested in trying to make sure that our kids' efforts are shared with the broader community.  The limited staffing has stretched them pretty thin this year and I thought we could contribute.  They will be using this site as a resource for information to include our kids' efforts, by pulling from the race recaps,  results and highlights that I post here after each meet.  They have also asked if we have pictures that would be good ones to use, that we submit them via the following email address:  journal@bluemarble.net

I know some of you take some fantastic shots to document our kids' events, and have pointed the staff at the Journal towards some of those Facebook pages.  But I thought if you had some that you felt particularly strong about, if you wanted to send them in, they might appreciate it.  I know I would, as would our kids, and I believe the broader community as well!

Thank you for all that you guys do...we had a great start to the season last Saturday and I'm excited for what this group could accomplish!
