MCHS XC Week #11, last NBL meet vs. Casa and Windsor at Spring Lake!

What: Last NBL meet vs. Casa and Windsor!

Volunteers scheduled to help with finish chute/course monitoring ; be at the boat dock by 2:45:

HELP!  ...We could use 2-3 more people to help with this meet, please contact Greg ASAP!

5 Reasons why YOU should be there Wednesday! 

1) This is the last NBL meet of the season before the NBL Championships next Friday!   
2) Both Casa and Maria Carrillo Varsity and JV teams are undefeated, 5-0 in 2014 NBL XC meets; it's going to be an exciting competition!
3) The weather is going to be nice, high 70s
4) Lots of our athletes should PR, come see them all run faster than they've ever ran before!
5) The MCHS XC team needs your support, enthusiasm and encouragement and besides, definitely more fun than staying at work  ;)  

...Hope to see you there!

The meet is sanctioned by the Central Coast Section for all schools in California.
The Crystal Springs Course is 2.95 miles of rolling hills, all run on trails. The layout of
the course is excellent for both runners and spectators. Chemical toilets and drinking
fountains are available at the course. A full snack bar will be in operation as in past
years. We will again be selling the traditional, long-sleeved, Crystal Springs Invitational
T-shirts. There are no dressing rooms, so have athletes arrive ready to compete.
To cover the increased cost of course maintenance, and overall functionality of
the meet, admission will be charged at the entrance gate. All coaches and athletes may
enter at no cost. The cost of all Adults and Children 10 and over will be $2. Coaches
please pass on the information to your parents.
Please respect the private property in the area. Do not go on to people’s
