ST. ROSE OF LIMA ACADEMY

2015 XC Athletes 


St. Rose of Lima XC Team invites you to share in the fun and fitness this Fall!!   The workouts consist of:  group runs, stretching, strength exercises, wind sprints, and short distance relay races - a perfect way for the kids to mingle and get fit.

Registration forms will are available under the "forms" tab.  

***DUE TO THE END OF DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME, THERE WILL NO PRACTICE THIS WEEK (Nov. 1st-7th).*** 

WE WILL CONTACT RUNNERS WHO HAVE PLACED IN THE TOP 15 OF THEIR AGE GROUPS ABOUT PARTICIPATING IN THE MEET OF CHAMPIONS.  BECAUSE THERE IS ONLY A JV (3RD-5TH GRADE) RACE AND VARSITY (6TH-8TH) RACE, THERE IS NO "RUNNING UP" IN THIS MEET.  RUNNERS IN THE MEET OF CHAMPIONS CAN DO SOME LIGHT RUNNING ON THEIR OWN DURING THE WEEK TO PREPARE. PLEASE EMAIL US WITH ANY QUESTIONS.

Congratulations to all the runners who participated in the Assumption Meet!

The following runners earned top 15 placements in their races:

Reminder: Parents or caregivers of children in K-2nd grade must assist coaches by remaining at practice and also keeping an eye on their own children especially during the longer runs around the park. These youngest children are capable of wandering off- typical of any park experience - and St. Rose staff cannot be responsible! Please stay attentive and assist the coaches in this way.
