On Tuesday, many of the Wildcats participated in County Meet #3 at Druid Hills Middle School. The coaches were impressed by some of the improvements made by team members over the last 7 weeks of training, and it paid off with fast times and season bests for many athletes. In the 3 mile race, there were HUGE drops in time for some of the boys from the last County meet two weeks ago. Among other improvements, Mac Johnston, Gabe Hoffman, Alex Weiss, and PJ Preston all took around 3 minutes off their time...in two weeks! The girls were not left out either, as great improvements were seen from Jazzy Calloway (4:30 improvement), Lizzie Shockley, (5 minute improvement), and Kaitlyn Delly (6 minute improvement!). Great job by all in the 3 mile and the 2 mile on Tuesday!
On Wednesday, the Wildcats had their annual photo scavenger hunt (won by Jackson Watson's team!) and were treated to Gatorade and snacks at the end of practice, thanks to the Hudson's! If you missed the information handed out at the end of practice on Wednesday or results from Tuesday's meet, please see the post from Wednesday to download these.
The Wildcats enjoyed their weekend off and are back to embark on our "Championship" portion of the season, starting with the DeKalb County JV Championships on Thursday at Druid Hills MS, followed by the DeKalb County Varsity Championships next Tuesday at Druid Hills MS (see below for rosters).
We will have a normal practice schedule this week, with the exception of Wednesday, when most of the 'Championship Season' roster will head to Blackburn Park to practice after school. Any parents who would be willing to help drive, please email Coach Boucher (Runners and alternates in Thursday's JV County Championship do NOT need to attend Wednesday's practice...we will give you a workout to do on your own). We do not plan on holding practice over the weekend next week.
