I am trying something new this season with team leadership roles. WE have an incredible group of people who do great things for PXC. This is an effort not to exclude anyone and to reinforce that this is OUR team..meaning we should all be work together to make this the best program possible. WE will have a group of weekly “captains” who will in charge of a week…both meets and practiced….. Starting TOMORROW through next Friday our Captains will be

The Greyhounds started off their 2019 XC campaign with some impressive early season performances. The varsity boys started off the day with a GREAT pack of 3rd Cole, 4th Will and 5th KC followed by Nick and Zane who lead the boys to a TEAM runner-up finish.

The Varsity girls continued the blue wave going 4th Charlotte, 5th Sophie, 6th Lorel with Rachel and Ashley running well to round out the scoring. This was a great TEAM WIN for the Hounds and lends promise to the season with the great depth of runners in the 4-10 spots!!!!

After a very impressive BAAAHAA circle the JV athletes represented PXC impressively with each team placing as the TEAM runner-up. Paxton (4th), Ashton (9th) Benny, Charlie and Davis where the lead runners for the boys. AS the day progressed Greyhounds overcame the heat to run well with Claudia (2nd), Sophia (9th), Emma D, Emma M and Catherine pacing the JV girls team .
The future is bright but we must continue the dedication to a season long plan of hard work!!! GREAT kick off week GREYHOUNDS!!!
