Storm Cross Country Newsletter
November 6, 2017
Greetings!

 On behalf of the board of directors I would like to thank everyone who was part of the 2017 Cross Country Team, your kids were fantastic and I was very proud of their performance this season. 
 
We still have a group of athletes training for the Junior Olympic Cross Country Championship meet to be held this year in Tallahassee, Florida in December. We still have a couple of tough meets to get to this month, so train hard and good luck!.
 
Thanks again for a great season
