Dear Team,




I have one word for the first meet: Wow!! Everyone did great, from Gremlins to Youth, from newbies to veterans. You guys all ran with a lot of heart and showed why Storm is truly amazing. Parents, thanks for getting your kids there on time, for participating in warm-ups, for cheering on everyone, and for committing to the team!! I couldn't be more pleased. Just think, we're only getting started. So what's next on the agenda...


This week we prepare for Pierce College. Newbies, you'll find a much different course this week. Can anyone give me an amen for hills? If you can't now, by Saturday at 12pm you will be. This course is a legitimate challenge and lots of fun. For the parents, it's a great course for spectating. Well, that is if you like to hike up the same hills your kids are running up.. J For kids, this is an historic course and you will enjoy it.


I'll encourage you this week in practice to take a quick check on your O'Meleveny race. Ask yourself one area you can improve on for this next week's race. As I spoke with a lot of you after the race, I left you with some points you'll hopefully remember. Some might want to take off a little slower this race, while others will want to work harder in the middle of the race. Whatever it is, think of that this week and work on it at practice. Remember in cross-country time is not the goal each week, it's place. By the end of the season you will qualify for post season races by place only. So this week try to move up a spot or two.


I am encouraged by all of you so keep up the hard work.

Thanks for giving me, the coaches, and your parents a thrilling Saturday morning!
