Great work this weekend! Both boys and girls showed their toughness and groovy sense of style and fashion while swimming the moats and braving the sands at Sandy Downs. It was a blast...it's hard to tell if the brown chunks in your teeth are from the dirt and mud or from the pie that was snarfed on the bus. Full Results can be found HERE.
Saturday we will be leaving the High School at 9:30 a.m. for Idaho Falls. We will stop at the lower valley elementary schools and Silverstar to pick up athletes as needed. The race times are as follows:
Jr. High race (1.5 miles)- 12:00 HS Girls race (3.1 miles)- 12:40 HS Boys Race (3.1 miles)- 1:30
Pack a lunch, get your costume ready and get ready to run fast and get dirty!
