Weekly Bulletin #11 - Week of 11/9 (7 & 8th Graders)

posted Nov 8, 2009, 4:56 PM by PMS Coach
Dear Parents of 7th & 8th Grade Cross Country Runners:
This past week marked the end of the season for most of the kids, except for those who have opted to run in the Bay Area Championship Meet.  I know for myself and the other coaches there is always some regret to see the season end, as we have seen throughout the season the kids grow as runners, as a team, and as individuals.  Every season is memorable in some way and we will take those memories with us with fondness.  Thank you for your support, for encouraging your child, for driving, providing snacks and supporting the program.  Myself and the coaches would like to thank you also for the generous gift given us at the banquet on Tuesday night.  There will be one more bulletin, with a season summary that I will issue in the next week or so.  Below are the items that need your attention, thank you.

Bay Area Championship Meet - Tuesday, November 10
The following 7th graders have expressed interest in running in this meet:
Chase Betta, Sarah Ching, Pierce Constanti (maybe), Jack Flynn (maybe), Michael Kuroda, Sofia Lautt, Andrew Strauch, Miles Von Hermann.  To my knowledge, no 8th graders plan on running in this meet.
The kids are to walk up to the usual place at the final bell on Tuesday. 
Please note, we need one or two drivers, currently no one has volunteered.   Please respond to this e-mail if you can drive. 
Attached are directions.
7 & 8th Grade Championship Meet
The meet was held at Kennedy Grove, both boys and girls teams finished in 4th place.  Our girls team was missing their top runner, Anna Harleen who was injured.  Sofia Lautt was our only runner to finish in the top ten, placing 9th.  Just missing out on a trophy was Sarah Ching in 11th place.  Angel Rael also placed well, complete results are not yet available.  For the boys, Kevin Wu our top runner all season, although injured for this meet, he ran, but finished back in the pack a bit.  Our top finisher was Matthew Gologorsky, a 3 year veteran who finished in 11th place. 
Pictures from the meet can be found at:
Please return them to David in the Rec Dept. 
Every year I ask for feedback about the program and please be candid.  There is always room for improvement and based on your comments I can implement change if feasible.  In the next week or so if you could go to this link:
Click on "End of Season Parent Survey" and take a minute or two to complete it, I would appreciate it.
Turkey Trot
The Piedmont Turkey Trot is Thanksgiving Day.  It benefits the high school and cross country teams. Here is the link to the race:
Any child on the cross country team who wants to run in it can get a $10 entry fee rate. 
I need to know if your child is interested or not.  Just respond to this e-mail.
Also, if any parent can volunteer for the meet, let me know.
