Dear Bantams and parents,

As I type this, I am grinning from ear to ear after spending an amazing day watching our CCC athletes run, jump, and throw with intensity, conviction, and just the right amount of silliness.  I also feel truly sad that the season has reached its end.

At today’s meet, we had many excellent finishes and placed high on the podium in several events.  Some athletes ran despite not feeling well, not wanting let their teammates down and still gave it their absolute all out their on the field.  Other athletes stepped in or were willing to step in for those athletes that simply could not compete today.  Everyone cheered their hearts out and even when a baton dropped,it was picked up, and the race was resumed without ever a thought of giving up!  This is all the stuff of which champions are made.

Thank you athletes, parents, and coaches for a magical season.  I am grateful for each and every one of you!

For those wanting to continue running throughout the summer, I encourage you all to come out and try the Boogie Nights Run Series held each Wednesday night for 10 weeks starting this Wednesday.

Boogie Nights is a 5K (sprinters are running in fear now) and a free kids 1K.  If any athletes want to try the 5k and want a pacer, let me know ahead of time and if I can, I will come and run with them.  We usually have a good Tigres turnout and it supports Buena Cross Country too:)

Finally, for those still needing to pick up their end of season goodies and for those athletes that did not get their medals from today’s meet, look for an upcoming Tigres team-wide email regarding day(s) and times to pick them up soon.

Have a wonderful offseason!  Happy running and I look forward to seeing you all next season.


Coach Carol
