Storm Team,


Wow, what a finish to the season!!  Let me start by thanking all of the parents that were there to support the team all year and especially on the final meet.  The morning crew was great, we even had time to spare.  Also Concessions, warm-ups and taking everything down.  We really are an incredible team!!  I can't tell you how many people mentioned how smooth that meet went and how professional it was.  How cool is that.  Thanks to Alan and Elaine for their decades of experience to lead a great day!


Now on to the athletes, a very emphatic heck yes we can!  7 out of 8 race team top 3 finishes and 3 individual first place finishes!  And numerous amazing performances to shock the rest of the conference.  You guys really showed up and performed and I couldn't be more proud.  Congratulations on an incredible finish to a tough season.


Ok, on to post season.  This is very important, if your athlete is in the top 16 and you have a desire to continue on to the post season please email me.  We will be having a seeding meeting this Wednesday night and must know if you are in.  Even if you are in the top 8, please confirm, otherwise other runners higher in ranking will be given the opportunity to replace you.  I said top 16 because there is a chance we can run B teams and some might make it all the way to nationals.  Financially speaking, not only does that require your travel costs but also $40 for the Striders uniform.  We compete on the national level as Valley Striders not Storm.


We will continue to have practice at the same time and days at Central Park.  The difference is we will meet by the bathrooms.  Non-Postseason athletes can still attend practice but please understand we focus training specifically for continuing athletes. 


Finally, the awards banquet is Tuesday, November 5th at 6pm at the Santa Clarita Youth Complex above the Aquatic Center off Center Pointe Pkwy.  This is a great night to remember the season, give out awards and enjoy some good food.  Please remember the food provided for this event is for athletes and immediate family only. 


Ok, that was a lot for the final newsletter!  My email address is   Feel free to email me any questions and to confirm post-season.

Again, thanks for everything.  With almost 120 kids we really have continued to grow into an incredible team!
