X-Country Running Begins on August 16th
Practices will be Monday - Friday after school until 3:45 PM. Parents and guardians are responsible for picking up student athletes after practice each day on time. We're encouraging x-country runners to begin training now. A good way to start is by running 1-2 miles every other day. Remember to stretch. Coach Swick is excited for the season. Hawks don't walk, we fly.
AUGUST 16th .... Come Join The Team!
