FHSAA cancels remainder of 2020 season.

Athletes and parents,

As was expected the season has been canceled by the FHSAA and the coaches don’t plan on attending any post season meets as a team. Everyone is welcome to compete in any post season meets as an individual if they wish, such as AAU later in the summer.

The coaches are working on awards and plan to give them out when it is allowable later on. We will keep you informed. We will also let you know about the summer distance running program and the Brevard Distance Camp.

As always, if you have any questions, let us know.

Coaches, Maren, Sheppard, Rope, Doherty, and Peoples

Update on the Brevard Distance Summer Camp

Athletes and parents,

We just spoke to the Brevard camp director and they are still planning on having camp only if the forestry department can open the parks, which are closed until further notice. They also said they will DECIDE ONE WAY OR ANOTHER BY JUNE 1st and that ANY DEPOSITS PREPAID WILL BE REFUNDED IF THEY ARE UNABLE TO OPEN! The coaches are hoping this will still happen as it will be a welcome change and a step in the right direction toward getting back to normal and preparing for the upcoming season.

I hope this helps with any uncertainty anyone may have. We will update all of you when we hear more.

For all the new runners/parents who don’t know about the camp go to: run@brevarddistancerunnerscamp.com to learn more. It is totally voluntary and not a requirement to be on the cross-country team. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us.

Coaches Maren and Lehning

Update

Athletes and parents,

We are obviously still in a holding pattern and waiting it out until we get word from the school board and the FHSAA as to what the future holds with school and sports. Meanwhile the athletic director has asked me to let you know registration forms will be sent out next week for class sign up. Next year they are offering class(es) for athletes who want an elective to be able to train, especially for females since it has been primarily for boys/football in the past. They must have between 20-30 students signing up to make this class.
I also wanted to let you know that we will eventually have some sort of banquet/cookout/awards day for the track team when we know more.

Meanwhile, the coaches hope that everyone is staying healthy both physically and mentally in this tough time. We are all disappointed that the season was interrupted this way, especially for our seniors. We however, are grateful that we were able to end on a high note by winning both of the Alachua County Track Championships (see Buchholzxctf.com for results and pictures).

Sincerely,

Coaches Sheppard, Maren, Peoples, Doherty, and Lehning

Race results

Athletes,

Last night was very exciting as it was a total team effort by everyone who competed. Each one of you contributed something to winning the girls and boys titles. The coaches are extremely proud of everyone for stepping up. So many of you ran, jumped or threw your best efforts of the year! Let’s continue to work hard together as a team.
