Congratulations to all runners today for their excellent performances in Westford! The girls team made it 3 wins in a row and are really running well!
We are planning to have practice tomorrow until 3:30 for all team members, but will make a decision during the day depending on the weather. We will update the blog if there are any changes.
As you know the Carlisle Invitational is an event in which runners need to qualify. We have a number of boys and girls who have reached this goal...Congratulations. The coaches announced those who will be running at the invitational at the conclusion of today's meet. Those who are on the roster were thrilled!
Below is information about the Carlisle Invitational which takes place next Monday. We are aware that there is a 7th grade field trip in Canton, MA and the bus is not expected to return until 3:30. This causes a problem seeing that the XC bus will be leaving at 2:30. Several families have reached out and are planning on picking up their son/daughter in Canton and then will bring them to Carlisle. We are thankful to those who will have to go through this to make it to the starting line!
**Please note that the projected start time of the girls race is 5:15 and the boys race is 4:45. There is also an ice cream stand at Great Brook Farm which we typically invade following the races. It is a good idea to have a few extra dollars for a snack on the way home.
