This is the team's second year at HMS. As a result our goals will be
to build on our successful first year, introduce our new student-
athletes to the sport, develop our runners' conditioning, as well as
our ability to compete as a team at meets.

· Will run from 8/27 to 10/13 (longer if we are able to participate in
the City Championships at the end of the season).
· Tryouts will be conducted as part of regular practices. The final
team roster will be posted on 8/31.
· Practices:
o Monday (4:00 to 5:15)

o Thursday (4:00 to 5:15)
o Additional practices will be added as needed to prepare for
scheduled meets.

selection and will offer HMS Cross Country team members a 20% team
discount. Saucony is a good, reasonably priced running shoe.
