Looking ahead -
Fall Sports Picture Day is Wednesday September 27th at 5:00pm. Athletes need to wear their RED XC shirt with the NAVY BLUE uniform shorts. We will have practice from 3:30pm to 5:00pm prior to pictures. Practice will go a little longer on Wednesday.
Championship Team Roster - It is that time of the season when the Championship Team Roster is announced. From here on out, we can no longer take our entire team to meets. Hence, we will name about 20-25 students on Friday of this week. Anybody not named to the Championship Team Roster is welcome to continue to practice with the team. However, they will not race in any more meets this season and practice will be geared towards those athletes on the Championship Roster.
This Thursday (Sept 28th) is the JV Dekalb County Championships. The bus will leave from the gym at 3:30pm. The girls race at 5:15pm and the boys race at 5:45pm at Druid Hills Middle School in a 2 mile race designed only for 8th, 9th, and 10th grade students. We can race 7 athletes in each race - who will be announced at practice on Tuesday. All other athletes should ride the bus to cheer them on.
The Wildcats will not race this weekend; but then will continue their Championship season on Tuesday October 3rd again at Druid Hills Middle School for the Varsity Dekalb County Championships. The bus will again leave from the gym at 3:30pm with the girls race at 5:15pm and the boys race at 5:45pm. This will be the standard 5k length for 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders. Again, we can race 7 athletes in each race. Students will need to talk with their 4th period teacher to be dismissed from class at 3:10pm to be on the bus by 3:30pm due to the extended day. EDIT----DUE TO THE EXTENDED SCHOOL DAY, THE VARSITY COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP RACE TIMES HAVE BEEN MOVED TO 5:45PM AND 6:15PM. THE BUS WILL STILL LEAVE DHS AT 3:30PM.
