    Inglemoor 9th Grade 2mi New Record

    The record set by then freshman runner Cooper Laird in 2016 was recently broken by 2019 freshman Jacob Schutt last Wednesday, September 11th at the KingCo Jamboree. Schutt bested Laird's 3 year old record by 39sec. in a time of 10:42.4 earning a top 3 finish in the frosh race which Laird won back in 2016. Other notable freshmen boys Gabriel Marcham, Roan Howard, LucasJuezler and Jet Bejaminson for placing in the top 10 fastest freshman 2mi times. On the girls side Ava Jones and Violet Brose hold the no. 4 and 10 spot respectively with Verada Ellett in no. 11 of all time fastest 2mi freshmen.

    League Meet #1 @Bothell Wednesday, Sept 18th 4-6pm* St Edward SP

    This is looking like a 5 team meet and should be very exciting. Teams will likely just run a larger varsity squad in order to alleviate crowding in the jv race.
    NO district bus to the park. Need a Discover Pass if you park inside the park. Parking will be more crowded than usual. Consider carpooling or drop off.

    • Team arrives Not Later Than 3pm. Look for the yellow team tent.
    • We encourage athletes to stay after their race and cheer on their teammates who are still racing. Make it part of your cool down.
    • Parents to sign out their athletes and any others they will be responsible for. Thank you!

    If you would like to help out our team please see the volunteer sign up page for our needs. Thank you!

    Transition to Fall Weather

    This past weekend's rain, lightning and thunder was a stark reminder that our weather is changing! Please keep in mind that we train and race in all types of conditions so ensure that your athlete is prepared: Here are some items and tips that will make cooler, wetter weather more manageable.

    • Dress appropriately. Long sleeve synthetic shirts, tights, hat, light gloves, and a light rain jacket are helpful. Do not wear a cotton sweatshirt on rainy days. It just gets wet and heavy.
    • Extra shirt or sweatshirt, sweatpants and socks to change into after a wet workout. Especially nice if you have to wait or have a longer drive home.
    • Plastic garbage bag for your backpack to keep it dry on wet days.
    • Two pairs of running shoes. It's okay to run in an older pair on really wet or muddy days. You can rotate between them as one dries out. Stuff your wet running shoes with newspaper to soak up the moisture. It might take a few sheets to get them dry. Place them near a heat register but avoid putting them in the dryer.

    Volunteer Spots for XC Season

    Cross country has many opportunities to be involved. Whether it is bringing a few snacks to meets, flipping a few pancakes, scooping ice cream, taking pictures, or helping out at a meet your involvement means you are part of our sport and you care. Please consider signing up to help out during the season. We have volunteer tasks that only take minutes and some might take an hour or two as in our meets. It is time well spent and wholeheartedly appreciated by everyone especially our athletes. Please check out our requests on the Volunteer Sign up page. Thank you!
