Hello XC family –
lots going on this week!!!
Pasta night tomorrow at 5-7pm
Wednesday we will be having our first League Meet at Kenneth Hahn Park near Culver City. If you went to the previous meets, this meet is lot smaller, but not necessarily easier (you will understand when you see The Hill).This meet is also a lot hotter than the previous evening races, so please make sure that your athlete drinks LOTS of water the day before the meet and the day of the meet.WHEN: Wednesday 9/21/2016, First race 2:30pm, last race at 5pmWHERE: Kenneth Hahn Recreation Park, 4100 S. La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles CA 90056Students will miss their period 4 and 5 (its a Wednesday) again and should let their teachers know in advance. They are responsible for any work missed but will be officially excused through the athletic dept. You will get a phone call but it will be excused in a few days.
BUS: Buses will leave campus at 1pm.I encourage parents to come and cheer and take kids home after the meet. We will only have one bus returning to SAMO. The bus should be back at SAMO at 7pm.WHAT TO WEAR: All athletes must wear their school uniform! If your athlete needs a top or shorts- let me know !SCHEDULE:
The meet schedule is as follows. Note that sophomores run with JV in this meet:
JV boys- 2:30pm
Varsity girls – 3:00pm
Varsity boys – 3:30pm
JV girls – 4:00pm
Frosh boys – 4:30pm
Frosh girls – 5pmPARKING: In the location map below you will see two stars. One created by the map in the middle of the green area and one at the end of the long road. The meet happens all the way at the top of the Kenneth Hahn Park where the second star is (the star more on the lower right). Once you pass the Entrance Booth keep driving and looping past the playground, past the community center, keep going up the hill until you cannot go anymore. There is some parking up there, but it is first come first serve. If the upper parking lot is full there are lower parking lots too (you just have to walk back up the hill to the meet site). Since this is a smaller meet there are no parking people escorting: you just have to figure it out yourselves!!MAP of the location: https://www.google.

RESULTS, COURSE MAPS ETC: Since this is a local meet we also don’t have fancy links to the course maps, real time chip results etc.
Please come and support! We would love water, bananas and bars for the athletes! Thank you Ms Navin for bringing water and food for the kids at Woodbridge!
