WMS Cross Country

  • Hello Wildcat XC Athletes and Families,

    I hope your spring break was wonderful. I was fortunate to have spent some great quality time with my family. Below is some information for Week 3.

     4)  Race Information: 

         - Athletes are required to have a minimum of 8 (healthy) official WMS XC practices and pay the athletic fee before they are able to run in any meet/competition. 

         - All student-athletes are expected to ride the bus with the team to the meet (unless alternative plans have been prearranged).

         - The WMS XC official uniform is the school-provided racing singlet and athlete-provided black shorts or running tights (WMS PE uniform shorts will work perfectly).

         - Make sure your athlete has warm (weather-appropriate) clothes to wear before and after their race. Cold muscles make for slow racing and sore runners the next day. Labeling clothes and water bottles greatly increase the chance that lost items will get back to your family.

         - Remember, to sign your athlete out on the attendance sheet (found at the team camp) if you are going to pick them up at Klahowya.

    Go Wildcats!
