TRACK IS HERE!!!


The only sad thing about the Christmas season leaving, is the reality that TRACK season is near!! We are now only SEVEN WEEKS away from our High Schoolers kicking off the season at PINE TREE & then only EIGHT WEEKS away from the JH kicking off the season! GET EXCITED!!!

A couple of things to note as we near this time of the year:

  1. JH 7th/8th girls & 7th boys (MID / DIS) will workout in the mornings (Starting around 7:45am, and going until about 8:30, you will start meeting at these times when basketball season is over.
  2. HS girls/guys NOT is basketball & 8th grade boys NOT in basketball have already begun training. We will continue to workout 8th period, until about 4:30pm most days.
  3. HS girls/guys IN basketball & 8th grade boys IN basketball will begin working out at the conclusion of basketball season for their level. They will then pick up with the others 8th period.
  4. MAKE sure you are apart of the group messages, we will practice some on the weekends for group runs/workouts for those who are able too. & as well for other team announcements that come up (this is for JH & HS runners & parents) contact coach Alford if you need to be included:  jalford@shisd.net.
  5. MOST weight days will be MON/WED for the season, some might differ due to Meet dates. (on weight days runners will go till about 4:30-4:45 depending). *For those in last period athletics.
  6. NON weight days runners will do their scheduled run & then have strides/hill sprints & Hurdle/Med ball drills after, and will be done around 4:00-4:15.
  7. If a runner has multiple sports, the coaches will workout a schedule to ensure the athlete will be able to get everything in and not be short changed either way. (Example: Softball/baseball & track or Soccer & track)
  8. It will be COLD some days, make sure you have a good pair of  gloves & pants/sweat shirt in your lockers on standby just in case it sneaks up while your in school…make sure we stay warm!!
  9. Uniforms will be handed out MID Jan & will be your responsibility until the end of the season (KEEP UP WITH IT).
  10. BEST PART ABOUT THIS SPORT IS YOUR GET OUT OF IT WHAT YOU PUT INTO IT…ONLY WAY TO GET BETTER IS TO RUN!!! If you want to be good and have goals, trust the plan and don’t skip out on your weekend runs, when you don’t run it is noticeable, if you want to be good the only thing holding you back is you!! COMMUNICATION IS KEY!!! Message coach about your weekend runs this can help ensure your training plan is best for you.

REGIONAL RECAP


Regional Recap 2017-

This past Monday, the SH Cross Country teams traveled to Joe Pool Lake to compete in the Region II, Cross Country Championships. With only four out of the nine lining up returning, this young team had in reality little pressure. Yet, for all nine this race had been a goal since May. And it meant far more than a chance  to go to go state, it was race to prove to themselves and others just how hard they have worked and come over the past seven months.

The first race of the early morning was the Varsity girls, and after gettting great positioning, freshmen Samantha Schott and Sophomore Marissa Seyer, both would sit in the top 30 in a field of over 100 runners. Cruising past the mile marker, and into the last 800 meters it would be Schott, who would come around first around 25th place. Yet, through her competitive nature and a few solid weeks of training under her belt, Schot was able to push past five to earn the 20th place spot, four places shy of advancing to state and only 2 seconds away! Following Schott, Seyer would come to cross the line 81st, 30 spots ahead from where she finished last year and 20 seconds better. Both girls competed strong and finished up a successful year, falling short of the final race, but gained lessons that will carry them further in the future.

Following the girls race, was the Varsity boys race. Aiming for state, PRs, and better finishes seven guys lined up ready to end their season on a high note. Going out fast a field of over 150 runners would all chase down the dream of state. Getting out and boxed in, for the top five guys it would soon be noted this race was not going to be easy. Coming in with the fastest two times from a strong district, the top two runners, Sophomores Austin Martin and Kalen Balow would find themselves crossing the finish at 38th and 82nd, followed by teammates Haden Bray (90th), freshmen Caleb Hutcheson (95th), and sophomore Mason Hancock (99th), who would cross the finish line limping as a severe muscle cramp would hinder his last 800 meters down the finish line. And too round out the seven runners, would be freshmen Marshall Bodenhimer (116th), who battled the entire race, moving up over 20 places to earn a PR for the season! And sophomore, Craig Hunnicutt, who after getting tangled up and falling during mile two would get back up and still make it to finish strong and help the team bump up in the rankings for the final standing, finishing as a team 12th place out of 24 teams and ensuring they are the best team in the district, by beating out rival Kilgore by two spots.

To sum it up, this team has come a long way and learned more than they realised about themselves and team this season. Constantly setting personal bests, moving up in rankings, and learning that their strength comes from the strength of their team. It is sad, yet exciting to say this season is now over. And while most would be excited for a well deserved break, this team was hurt, because they weren’t finished. Yet, this will be just one more reason that this group will come back stronger next year, and in track season. The work we do is often never witnessed by many, yet mark our words…soon it’s coming and everyone will see that SH CC is becoming one of the best!

….Now for a short break and then track!
