Cross Country Classic 2011 - An Invitation
We invite your team to return again this year and attend the 31st Annual Cross Country Classic, co-hosted by Woodbridge, Estancia, and Costa Mesa high schools and the Newport-Irvine Rotary Club, and sponsored by Puma.
Two great nights of racing! To provide optimum racing conditions and accommodate additional team entries, our meet will take place on two evenings: Friday, September 16 and Saturday, September 17, 2011. All divisions will include races "under the lights" at Estancia High School in Costa Mesa, CA.
Red and White divisions will run on Friday starting at 5:00 pm. Blue and Gold divisions will run on Saturday starting at 4:00 pm. Rated and sweepstakes races will be Saturday.
The boys’ sweepstakes race is named in honor Doug Speck (a giant in our sport that left us last year). The girls’ sweepstakes race is named in honor Don Murphy (a tireless volunteer in past invitationals that was tragically taken from us this past year).
Check the Meet Schedule for race start times.
Please mark your calendars with the date and let us know as soon as possible, if you plan to attend. We cap the full team entries at 180 and the spots fill up fast. Please check back regularly to this website for more information.
Additionally, let me encourage each of you to look at some of the technology tools that we have used to make each year’s meet more productive and beneficial to you: our NOBOL Race Manager, our automated meet registration process, and our athletics website that connects our athletes and their accomplishments to the community. We have had a lot of positive feedback from our website users, particularly our parents, and we would recommend that you strongly consider one or more of these tools for your team also. Please take the time to read the article About this Website.
For more information on how you can make similar tools available for your team, please contact TeamTrax at 949-632-2825 or by e-mail.
Thank you for your school’s participation in the Cross Country Classic! See you in September!
