Be proud to play for our school from 3rd Grade Beginner to 8th Grade Varsity!

Cross Country

All 3rd-8th graders are invited to join the cross country running team.  The practices will be held on weekend mornings at Abingdon Elementary School or at STM in the parking lot.  There may be one or two practices on trails.  Practice is once weekly for one hour.  Virtus trained parents are needed to assist with practice and those hours may be used for your required annual volunteer hours for the school.  Runners need to wear comfortable running attire and shoes for practice.  BRING WATER.

The distances for the meet are as follows:

  • 3rd-4th Grade – 1K
  • 5th-6th Grade – 2K
  • 7th-8th Grade – 3K

The meet is tentatively scheduled for the first weekend in November at Burke Lake Park.  Practices will usually be on Saturdays at 9am.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Matches for tennis players in grades 4-8 are generally held on Sunday afternoons.  There will be scheduled matches over Columbus Day Holiday Weekend.  The schedule has yet to be set, but please note: Sundays between 12:30-5pm are potential times.  We assume you will play in each scheduled match unless we are notified otherwise.  Team rosters will be drown up with extra effort so that we do not forfeit any matches; hence your information is critical now.  Please let us know which, if any, of the Sunday Matches you may have a conflict.
