Despite some hard work this week both teams looked impressive on the hills at Lindley Park and in the rougher stuff on the hospital side of the course. I’m hoping for loads of gorgeous photos on this week! Here’s the link to the girls results. Here’s the link to the boys results.

Dual Meet with Butte on Thursday–Come out to Support and say HI to the Hawks!

The next couple days of XC will progress as follows:

Wednesday, October 15th – 4:10 pm meet at Lindley Park for a course run-through. After practice the team may return back to the high school for dinner with the Hawk Boosters. Dinner is free to all BHS athletes and will be served at 6:00 pm in the south cafeteria. The menu includes pasta, salad, bread, a drink, and a dessert.

Thursday, October 16th – Arrive to Lindley Park no later than 3:00 pm. Seriously, do not be late. Races will begin at 4:00 with the boys and 4:30 for the girls. There are only two races, varsity and jv combined. Directly after the races all athletes not competing in the State XC meet need to return to the high school to turn in all uniforms and warmups. Washing the uniforms is not necessary – simply show up and drop them off with the coaches.

To all those that joined us this year for Hawk XC, thanks for all your great efforts! This 2014 season has been great!

Bumping “How 7v7 Works”

With so many freshman running this year it is timely to post how the 7V7 race works again. For many years this race was run as the Lewis and Clark with the 14 AA teams divided into two divisions. Now most teams of all sizes in the state participate with the exception of the JV races which are AA only. Here’s a nice summary by the from race morning.

How 7v7 Works

The 7v7 meet has always been a fan favorite. For the AA JV teams it is considered the state meet for JV. Both the boys and girls run separately and it is the last time the JV teams meet for the season. Once the JV teams have raced the varsity races start with all of the 7th runners from each team in the state competing against each other. Both boys and girls line up and start together. The excitement builds from there as each race finishes and those runners join the fray of fans racing back and forth across the course. Last year the Bozeman Boys won with a perfect score of 7, the girl’s team has not lost since 2009 and last year averaged 18:05 for the top five. Go to to check last year’s results and to see how the scoring works. Bring your best running shoes, energy bars and togs as this meet allows fans to see a lot of the course. Good Luck Hawks!

Monday the Week of 7v7

Monday — Meet at BHS, 3:56. Moderate level run. Teams for Helena Invite will be named.

Tuesday – Saturday — Stay tuned. Still working out some ideas, knowing that essentially we will have two different training groups (Helena Invite and Non-Travelers)
