We wanted to take a moment to explain how the rest of the season will work when it comes to racing. First, cross country practice will go through December 14.
There are 3 meets that make up the Championship Season. Those meets are Association Championships, Regional Championships and National Championships. Runners must qualify to each additional round of championships as a team or as an individual. Here is how that works:
Association Championships (11/24 @ Folsom HS)
The first thirty (30) individual finishers and first five (5) teams in each division (age group) will qualify to Regionals.
Regional Championships (12/1 @ Woodward Park, Fresno)
The first thirty (30) individual finishers and first five (5) teams in each division (age group) will qualify to Nationals.
National Championships (12/14 @ Madison, WI)
The Hawks goal is simple - QUALIFY AS MANY HAWKS AS POSSIBLE TO THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS. Qualifying in and of itself is a major accomplishment. If families choose to travel to Wisconsin for Nationals is entirely up to them. We understand its a tough time of year and a very expensive trip. At this point, the coaches anticipate based off of conversations we have had that no one will travel to Wisconsin this year. If you have an interest in going please reach out to Coach Dusty, Staci or Phil asap.
PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR ASSOCIATION & REGIONAL CHAMPS. AS WE TELL THE KIDS ALL THE TIME - HAWKS ARE STRONGER TOGETHER.
