Reminder: Cross Country Meets This Friday & Monday

As a reminder for our CC parents, this Friday runners will compete in their first meet of the season.  Students will need to be at YMCA Camp Sloper in Southington by 3:00pm to stretch and walk the course with Coach O’Neill.  Transportation is NOT provided by the school – parents must make accommodations to get runners from Saint James School to the race.

Runner families are encouraged to “subscribe” to the Cross Country Calendar (if they do not already have it linked from last year) HERE.  The online calendar provides race locations and other information regarding each meet.
