Change Team: 
Foot Locker Midwest Regionals
by posted 10/12/2019

     Hi, team. At the end of cross country season is a special event that some members of our team participate in:  Foot Locker Midwest Regionals. Each year, I invite specific members of our team to it as a way of encouraging them to finish their seasons strong. This year's Foot Locker invitations have gone out--now, I want to open it up to the rest of the team.

     You can find all the details on the event's website. Basically, it is a series of races that is held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside (in Kenosha, WI). The whole family can participate in the races, as they have ones for eighth graders and younger; high schoolers; adults; and runners over 40 years old. There's a lot of variety and it can be a family outing day. 

     The event's website has registration and race details. If you (or a family member) decide to participate in the event, please let me know ahead of time. We can help with training and might be able to save you money with a possible discount on registration.

     Please contact me if you have any questions.

 

For God's glory,

Coach Bukowski

We Have Another Meet on the Calendar!
by posted 09/03/2019

     Hello, XC team. I am very excited to announce that we have been invited to the inaugural Fox River Valley Cross Country Invitational Meet. We will be competing alongside some schools already in our 4th-8th grades conference, plus a few that are not. It is hosted by Frassati Catholic Academy and held at Cook Park (where our first meet will be held). It takes place on September 12th.

     There is more excitement. Since this is not a regular conference meet, they are extending the athlete grade levels up to ninth grade. If you are in 4th-9th grades, you may participate in this meet. (The last time our ninth graders participated in a meet like this, we earned first and second places. Of course, we had the only two freshmen running, but we'll still take it.) There will also be awards (although the freshmen are not eligible for awards) for the top ten runners of each gender in 4th-6th grades and 7th-8th grades. 

       Whether we earn first or 30th places, this should be a fun meet and a great opportunity to stretch our legs. Go, Eagles!

 

For God's glory,

Coach Bukowski

Today's and Monday's XC Practices
by posted 08/09/2019

     Hello, XC team. I heard yesterday's practice went well. Day one is in the books--now on to day two.

     Today's practice will be from 3:30-4:30 p.m. at Old School Forest Preserve. You'll meet Coach Fleener at the sled hill, towards the back of the preserve. (Here's a trail map.) Have fun.

     There was a glitch in the HRK email system, but I think it's been ironed out. You should be receiving email reminders of upcoming practices, meets, etc. Monday's practice is from 3:30-5:30 p.m. at shelter B of the Nippersink Forest Preserve.
