2014 St Rita Cross Country
CYO is sponsoring two cross country meets again this year. We will participate in them as a team if there is enough interest. Just like track, there are boys and girls competitions as three different levels. 3rd and 4th graders compete in the C division and run 0.5 miles. 5th and 6th graders compete as B’s and run 1 mile, while 7th and 8th graders are in the A division and run 1.5 miles.
This year Mr. Hagen has agreed to run with the 5th – 8th graders on Fridays if there is enough interest. 5th and 6th graders must be able to keep up with the group if they are going to attend Friday practices. Athletes may not skip football or volleyball on Fridays to run without their coach’s permission. Most running needs to be done on your own and at PE.
Athletes may run in one or both CYO events. There are individual awards, but to compete for team awards, we must have 3 runners in a category. I have attached information on both competitions. The registration deadline listed on each is the CYO deadline. I need the information several days ahead of that in order to process the entries. The cost per meet is $10 and checks should be made out to St Rita Athletics. We will write one check to CYO.
Note: the CYO Championship meet on Tuesday November 11 is Veteran’s day and is a day off school.
There is an additional meet on Saturday 9/20 at Hahamongna Park on the Pasadena/La Canada border. That meet is sponsored by St Philip and PCC. They accept walk up registration. I have attached a flyer for that meet as well, but I will not be able to attend due to our participation in a football tournament at St Paul. Reminder for the Girl’s Varsity, that they have a volleyball tournament that day.
