CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS

CROSS COUNTRY DIRECTOR  & ANTICIPATION EXCITEMENT

October 2nd & 3rd the 2017 CSAA Cross Country Fun Run & Junior/Senior Championships were hosted at Tom Sawyer State Park.  This was the 33rd year for the championships and we saw over 800 young girls and boys participate on two stunningly beautiful days. The enthusiasm and joy for distance running was evident in all the participants, as well as our director, who spends a huge amount of time preparing for the event. CONGRATS TO ALL - from 1st grade through 8th - who made both days a huge success. The results are listed on our webpage in the Cross Country section of "Sports". 

Three new records were set in the Junior/Senior division making for an almost perfect day. Thank You, Joe Buechler for setting up a great course and working so hard for all the participants.


Finally, a “Fare Thee Well” to Lawrence Glaser who has contributed 21 years coaching at St. Aloysius, PeWee Valley – and who saw one of his team members set a new CSAA record in his final year of coaching.
