The Cross Country team was scheduled to run Sep 17 at 8:30 a.m. There were massive thunderstorms all morning long. The meet was delayed until 1:30 p.m. and finally got cancelled entirely.

Coach Jim Helmer said, “There were 49 teams scheduled to run on a great course. The team and I were disappointed that the meet was cancelled because the course would have been a great opportunity to run great times and improve records.”

This cancellation changes up practice schedules a little bit. The next meet is not scheduled until Oct 1, but because of the change of plans this past Saturday, Coach Helmer is taking a look and checking if he can get the cross country team a meet this upcoming Saturday, Sep 24. Coach said, “The cancellation interferes with training, but it is not going to be an issue. They will have to keep up with training as usual, and not back down.”
