Thursday, October 24th, we will be having a dinner for the athletes who are going to state, after practice @ 5 pm at Coach Thompson's house (520 Twin Cliffs Rd in Afton).
The bus will be leaving for Sheridan on Friday, October 25th, at 7 am from the high school and will pick up in Thayne, Etna & Alpine as needed. We will be stopping a few times throughout the day to do a quick run and let everyone stretch their legs and get some fresh air, so come prepared with clothes to run in while traveling.
Athletes will need to bring their own food for the drive on Friday. We will be having dinner as a team on Friday night in Sheridan.
I've cut and pasted some information on the meet, directions to the meet (which will be held at the VA hospital grounds in Sheridan), and running times. Note to parents, there is a $4 entry fee to the state meet.
If our team wins a state title, we will be traveling back as far as Riverton and staying the night there on Saturday. No state title means a long haul home Saturday night...uugh! You may want to pack some extra clothes and a swim suit for 'when' we stay the night in Riverton. :)

We will take our top seven from this race to run at state. We will possibly take an alternate.

If you are not attending the NIKE meet we will set a day to collect your gear and keep you posted on the post season movie/get together.
We will be hosting the first annual "Brave" the Run time trial at the Star Valley Vu Golf Course in Afton. We will start at 3:00 p.m. with MS Girls then MS Boys followed by HS girls then HS boys. Get ready to defend our home turf!
