Principal's Chat - Week 8

Staff vs Student Cross Country Race

The Hood River Middle School Cross Country team has been participating in a virtual season this Fall. Student athletes complete running courses and then post pictures of themselves and their times. Coach Amanda Phillips is hosting a Staff v. Student competition and students have a chance to win prizes. Middle school Cross Country races are 3 kilometers or 1.8 miles. Our current fastest kiddo ran a 10:33 so we have some stiff competition! We hope this encourage more kids to get interested in running. Please contact our Athletic Director Mr. Tuner or Coach Phillips if your kids are interested in HRMS XC!
