DQ Run - It was quite a sight seeing 40 MS XC Runners racing towards DQ today!  Everyone arrived, enjoyed an ice cream and then returned back to WMS.  The kids seemed to have a great time!

Thursday is our final meet of the season against Watertown.  The meet takes place in Watertown and the bus should be back to WMS between 5:30 and 6:00.

Our team party will take place on Friday after school and should be finished around 3:15.  Thanks to everyone for a great season!

It is hard to believe that this is the last week of our XC season!

The coaching staff has enjoyed coaching and working with each and every member of our team.  It is great to see the improvement of each athlete and also to see the smiles on their faces when warming up and stretching with their teammates.  It is a very special group of kids!  We hope that everyone has enjoyed the season as much as we have!  We would also love to see everyone back this spring for our Spring Track team!

Here is the week ahead along with information about the Carlisle Invitational which takes place on Monday.

Monday - Carlisle Invitational (This is not a full team event).  The meet takes place at Great Brook Farm in Carlisle.  Please read the information below from the Carlisle coach who is running the meet:

We have seventeen schools and 650 runners participating this year. Please pay close attention the schedule of races below, as we must stick to these times in order to finish all races before dark.

**If your child is not running in the Carlisle Invitational then they will not attend practice on Monday as all 3 coaches will be going to meet**

Tuesday - DQ Run!  We plan on leaving school at 2:30, run to DQ in Natick for an ice cream and then run back to WMS by 3:45.  This is a great "Workout" and the kids always enjoy it.  Please have your child bring a few dollars for an ice cream!  Also, please be sure your child returns their signed permission slips for our DQ run.  If you need another copy, please click here for an extra permission slip.

Thursday - Final meet of the season at Watertown.  We will send along information about the location of the meet once we hear from the Watertown coaches.

Friday - Team party!  It is a tradition for our team to end the year with a team party.  We encourage team members to bring a few snack items to school with them and the coaching staff will provide some pizza.  It is a fun way to end our season.  Pick up will be at 3:15.

Here is the week ahead...

Monday - Home meet against Bedford.  The girls will run first again today.  We are hoping that Bedford arrives early enough for a 3:45 start.  

Tuesday - Practice at Wayland Middle School.  Pick up is at 3:45.

Thursday - Away meet against Blanchard (Westford).  The meet takes place at Stony Brook Middle School on Farmers Way in Westford.  This is a true XC Country through the woods.  Seeing that it takes awhile to travel to and from Westford it will be very difficult to estimate our return time.  We will have the kids send a message with our ETA on our way home.  Our best guess for our return to Wayland Middle School will be after 6:00.

Friday - Practice at Wayland Middle School until 3:45.

**Carlislie Invitational**

We will be announcing the athletes who qualified for this event which takes place next Monday(10/23) at Great Brook Farm in Carlisle.  We are not able to bring the entire team so only our top runners will be able to attend this meet.  More details to follow...

Another Busy Week!

1.  Congratulations to both the girls and boys teams for their strong effort against Billerica yesterday.  It is fun to see the improvement of so many runners already.  Let's keep it going!

2.  Here is the schedule for the up-coming week:

Monday - Practice at WMS until 3:45

Tuesday - Home meet at Wayland High School against Stony Brook MS of Westford.  The girls will run first and then the boys will follow.  We are hoping to start the meet around 3:45.  Again, it depends when Westford arrives.

Thursday - Away meet at Kennedy Middle School (Waltham).  Due to 7th/8th grade Back to School Night, both the girls and boys will run at the same time, but will be scored separately.  We should be back to WMS around 5:45.

Friday - Practice at WMS until 3:45

3.  Our uniforms were expected to arrive this afternoon and we will distribute them during practice on Monday to those who have paid $11.00.  If your son/daughter did not order a shirt, we ordered a few extras.  If you plan on purchasing one of these extra shirts please make your check payable to Wayland Boosters.

4.  The coaching staff is really enjoying our XC team.  The kids come to practice ready to work and are getting better each day.  It is so nice to see the positive reinforcement from all team members.  We hope your child/children are enjoying it as much as we are!  Enjoy the weekend.
