Wingfoot XC Classic:

With thousands of runners, the competition was stiff.  It was another beautiful day that quickly turned hot, but our runners showed perseverance throughout the morning.

Our Varsity boys placed 26th out of 36 teams in the Boys Championship race.  Our Varsity Girls finished 21st of 34 teams in the Girls Championship race.

The Boys JV-Elite was impressive with a 12th place finish of 30 teams, and the Girls JV-Elite finished 19th of 31 teams.

The JV Boys fought for a 13th place finish of 19 teams and the JV Girls took a nice 14th of 30 teams.  Kelly Foit finished 8th overall in this race.

Great job, Hornets!

POST-MEET RECOVERY AT NEUROSPORT:  fullsizeoutput_ba9f

Neurosport (located near Marlow’s Tavern) is reserving recovery time for our athletes on Saturday, September 29  from 2:30-4:00pm after the meet.

We must give them the names of athletes by this Wednesday, September 26 at 5pm.  Please reserve your time by sending an email to annvance5@att.net.   Send your name and preferred time slot (2:30pm, 3pm, or 3:30pm).

 

XC PARTICIPATION FEE IS DUE:

We have a few families that have not paid the RHS Participation fee.  Please sign on ASAP.
At the parent orientation meeting, Coach Evans talked about a new Participation Fee that RHS is implementing (other schools have been collecting this in the past). It is a $75 fee per athlete per sport. The funds will stay with Cross Country and not be used by other sports. The funds will be used for things like going to state expenses, uniforms (in the future – we have already purchased this years’ uniforms…etc.), and other expenses that are incurred that Booster fees do not cover.  We definitely plan to use the funds to purchase badly needed new singlets.
Please pay this fee online, if possible using this link:
https://osp.osmsinc.com/FultonGA/Default.aspx drop down on “High” and select Roswell HS. Then click on either Girls CC or Boys CC and follow the prompts. Processing fees have been waived. This is the preferred method of payment so that Coach Evans doesn’t have to write out an individual receipt for each check/payment he receives. He would greatly appreciate your payment online.

It is important to note that the school collects these fees – it does not and cannot go through the booster club.
