The Starting Line

WELCOME TO THE 2016 EDITION OF EDISON HIGH SCHOOL CROSS COUNTRY!

We have an amazing group of athletes that work hard and are committed to maintaining a level of excellence that Edison Cross Country has become known for.

 

In the Sunset League for 2015, the Boys Varsity finished tied for 2nd. The Girls Varsity finished 1st and were the League Champions. The Boys JV finished in 1st for the 3rd year in a row! The Girls JV finished in 1st, completing one of the more dominant seasons in recent memory (they also won several invitationals). The Boys FS and Girls FS both finished 3rd. We also had a couple of individual league champions as well: Tyler Baird in Boys FS and Grace Condon in Girls JV.


Be sure to check back for important information, including keeping track of the Point Sheet (attendance), meet schedule and where we are supposed to be each day.

 

Keep in touch throughout the year! I use Remind.com to send out alerts to athletes mostly, but as parents it's never a bad idea to see what information your athlete is getting. Sign up following these instructions.

 

Girls Team Parent Meeting will be Wednesday August 24th at 6:30 pm in the school LIBRARY (location subject to change).

Boys Team Parent Meeting will be Thursday August 25 at 6:30 pm in the school cafeteria (loaction subject to change).

 

 

THIS WEEK'S ANNOUNCEMENTS

It's recommended that you read the "Cornerstones of Training" and "Stretching Routines" under the Running Resources Page.

Keep track of your workouts throughout the season and what they say you should be able to do in a race. (Tempos) (Repeats)

Time Trial Results are now posted in the "Point System" page. 

RoadRunner Shoe Night will be Thursday September 1 at Road Runner Shoe store in Costa Mesa from 6-8 pm. Team will earn money based on number of people in attendance. Most shoes last about 350-400 miles. Depending on when you bought training shoes, it may be a good idea to get news ones. Also, this is a great chance to buy racing flats for those that do not have them or need new ones. Pizza is usually provided.
