2016 Results, Photos, & Notes – Boys – Girls

This is the first test of the season. Your son/daughter is probably a little excited about the event. You can help them by providing positive support with statements like, “I can’t wait to watch you compete!” or “I think you will do great!” Following the race, your child does not want you to evaluate his/her performance. All they want from you is a hug, even when they don’t act like it.
 
A useful resource for parents of athletes new to the HS XC team
 
Link Crew
If your child is a link-crew leader, her absences for that event are excused. If your child is a first-year student at Saline High School, his absences for Link Crew are excused. In both instances, it will not count as your child’s “Free Pass” excused absence.
