XC needs your help.

1. TEAM DINNERS: We need a few more families to volunteer to host team dinners. These are low-key events and the host just needs to provide paper goods. You can sign up here or paste this url into your browser: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0e48aca92ba20-2016

2. PHOTOS: You should have received an invitation to dropbox so you can upload any photos you take at meets. If you did not receive it and want to add photos, email ruthspano@aol.com

3. TENT TRANSPORTING: We will need volunteers to transport the tent to and from Friday’s meet and to and from Saturday’s meet. Please email ruthspano@aol.com if you are able to help.

Cheyenne Mountain Results

Our own Harrison Scudamore (Junior) led the Angels by winning 1st place with a blazing fast time of 16:09 at Cheyenne Mountain on Friday. Click here for the boys 5A results.

The girls finished in 7th place and was led by Nell Salzman (Junior) who ran a screamin’ fast time of 21:18 and placed 13th in the girls 5A race. The girls team finished 7th overall. Click here for the girls 5A results. 

As Coach Kohuth explained Thursday night, the Angels, no matter where they finished, ran the toughest race they could run.  They will continue to do this each week throughout the season.    “It doesn’t get easier, you just get faster.” ~ Greg LeMond
