Both teams earned their spot in the Alabama Cross Country State Championships which will be held next Saturday, 11/9/13, in Moulton, AL.
For the meet this weekend at Daphne, I have entered everyone to compete... that includes all high school and middle school runners. The middle school athletes do not HAVE to compete, but I think it is good experience and gives them an opportunity to run a 5k.
This meet will only have 2 races, so everyone will run together (unless he decides to throw in a JV race because of all the teams that have entered).
There will be a $4 gate fee for all parents/spectators to enter... so bring some cash to make sure you don't get surprised at the gate. The race normally starts right behind the dog park.
Again, please make sure you are at the meet at least 1 hour prior to your races start time. I have added a link to show the location of Trione Park in Daphne.
Jesse Owens in Moulton, AL on 10/5/13... I will be sending out an email regarding who will be going with us to Jesse Owens later this week.
