2017 is destined to be an exciting season for the JH Cross Country Team. A solid number of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students are demonstrating their interest and enthusiasm by either joining our Team for the first time or returning as experienced veterans. We are very excited!

The goal of the 2017 JH XC Team is to develop today’s young athletes’ overall fitness levels, increase their speed, help them set and achieve individual goals, race well, and have some fun in the process. Running Cross Country will definitely challenge our athletes to push themselves to new heights, to develop new insights, and to reach a deeper understanding of themselves. By the conclusion of the season, each JH XC Team Member hopefully will know s/he was an important part of something meaningful. We are also confident that, with the depth of our returning members, combined with the talent and energy of our newest recruits, we will be winning/placing high in individual races and/or meets, and that will be icing on the cake.

JH XC practices M, W, F, 3:15-6:00pm. Runners meet in the JH Commons and are provided transportation to and from a variety of running venues. Sometimes we will also run from Paideia. Our first official practice will be on Friday, August 11th, and our first meet is Saucony's Battle of Atlanta (Nash Farm, 8/26). Most meets are on Saturday mornings/midday, though we have two weekday afternoon meets and one evening meet.

Uniforms will be provided and are to be returned at the end of the season.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Our final meet is the Georgia Middle School State Championships, which will be held on Saturday, October 14th, at Bleckley County Elementary in Cochran, GA. This is the middle of Fall Break, but we still expect our runners to attend –- it is a fantastic experience and a wonderful way to end the season.
