Coming off the Coach Wood Invitational and Homecoming Weekend, the Running Wildcats are making their final preparations this week to take on Region 7-AAAAAA!
The Region Championship Race is scheduled for Tuesday October 24th at Webb Bridge Park in Alpharetta, GA. The course starts on the soccer field and loops one and a half times on the flat field before heading out and making two laps on the hilly, crushed gravel trail, and then finishing back straight to the finish line on the soccer field. Students will attend part of first period on Tuesday, before leaving on the bus from the DHS gym at 9:00am to head out to the park. Students should speak with all their teachers this week to get missed assignments. The race times are as follows:
Coach's Meeting 10:15am
Open Race 11:00am
JV Girls 11:45am
JV Boys 12:25pm
Varsity Girls 1:05pm
Varsity Boys 1:45pm
Awards Ceremony 2:15pm
Lunch for athletes provided by Booster Club
Bus should return to DHS 4:00pm
Students need to remember to bring everything they need for the race to school - including snacks, mini-meals, water, gatorade, uniforms, spikes, warmups, and anything else needed for before the races, the actual races, and after the races.
Anybody that has not been out to the race course should plan on making a trip out there this weekend and previewing the course on their own. In addition, it would be a good idea to plan and experiment with your meal times for these midday races. As always, please see a coach and communicate with them if you have any special needs this week. The top four teams from the varsity races will move on in competition.
There will be NO morning practice on Mon Oct 23rd. Instead we will have a short afternoon practice from 3:45-4:30pm.
