Week of Great Falls

This Week….. Sept. 22 – Sept. 27

Great set of meets this past week. We are competing well. I am pleased with the attitudes and comraderie that I see in this team. We are forging a great team.

Monday — Meet at BHS, attendance starts at 3:56. Moderate distance CAR. Remember the principles of hydration and nutrition as you carry through the day.

Tuesday — Meet at BHS, 3:56. Prepare for the most challenging day of the week. We will be working out in and around Lindley Park.

Wednesday — Meet at BHS, 3:56. Recovery run, easy pace, easy to moderate distance. Aaaaahhhh.

Thursday — Meet at BHS, 3:56. Pre-meet light run with some striders for those competing in Gt. Falls. Moderately, challenging run for those not traveling this week.

Friday — Great Falls Invitational. Who goes? Be listening; travel squad will be announced on Monday. You may also inquire with a coach Tuesday, Wednesday if unsure.
Dismissed: 10:10 Depart: 10:20 Location: Anaconda Hills Golf Course
Schedule: JV Boys: 3:00, JV Girls: 3:40, Varsity Boys: 4:15, Varsity Girls: 4:40
All other runners staying back will be expected to run, normal practice schedule, location TBD.

Saturday — For all runners that did not travel to Gt. Falls, there will be a run on this morning (exact time yet TBD). While this will be an “Optional Run”, it is strongly encouraged, particularly for those who are experienced runners who are needing one extra tough workout in the week. Please talk to your coaches about your plans and whether this workout fits your progression appropriately.

Topics that will be clarified at Mondays practice: Weekly mileage goals, Travel roster, Eligibilty for upcoming meets (how do coaches make ddecisions for travel and/or Varsity teams if sickness/injury are a factor), perhaps more.

Alumni–too many to count

At the BRC Bobcat Invite I had the following sighting of Hawk Alumni:



Mountain West Results

Looks like sparks flew in the individual girls race at Mountain West today. Annie Hill, and the two Morley sisters went through the two mile at 11:05 and then Bryn fell off and Annie had a slight gap on Makenna. Annie beat Makenna’s course record by 4 seconds in 16:39. Bridget Creel came in with a pack from Hellgate and Skyview and had the top finish for Bozeman in 9th. After that it was pins and needles for the team race. Bozeman held out Piper Meuwissen for a cold and CdA took the win 110-121.

Mountain West Invite App

I’ll be here at Bridger Creek watching the college meet this weekend and just noticed that competitivetiming.com is timing Mountain West. They have an app that I downloaded onto my phone where I can see the unofficial meet results as they come in to the chute. I don’t see a link to live video of the race which I would prefer! Good luck to all the athletes at Mountain West this weekend. It should be a great meet as always. NC
