News and Announcements
We are only halfway to our required 20 XC runner volunteers for the Mesa Marathon coming up NEXT Saturday, Feb. 4th. Our team consisted of more than 50 runners, so we should be able to meet this number! We also need a couple more parents to join as well. For a few short hours of our time, the team will earn $1500 for next season. As runners, we should not hesitate to give back to the running community. This is a great opportunity!
Please let David Rice (Brody’s Dad), firstname.lastname@example.org, know ASAP and he will send out the final details about carpooling and more.
Calling all distance runners!
We will be volunteering again at the Mesa Marathon on Saturday, Feb. 4th at Mile 4.5 aid station. We need a MINIMUM of 20 volunteers to fill cups, hand out water & Gatorade to the runners and clean up after. The more the merrier as it gets hectic when the bulk of the runners come through the aid station. The morning goes by quickly and before you realize, the runners are onto the next aid station and you are done.
For our time from 5:45 -8:10 am the team will get $1500, which covers all of our race entries for the 2023 season!
We want the 20 spots to be filled by XC runners with a few parents to help out with carpooling and supervising. This is a great opportunity for those kids who need volunteer hours (especially the juniors and seniors). Seniors, this is your chance to leave your legacy to the runners you have been mentoring these past years!
Please let David Rice (Brody’s Dad), email@example.com, know your interest and he will send out the final details about carpooling and more. There is no age limit, so younger siblings are welcome to join! This is a great opportunity to give back to the running community!!
Here is some information for Nike cross tomorrow. The girls run at 8:50 and guys run at 9:45. TAC will pick up thr bib numbers and have them with him.
Congratulations to all the athletes on a great season! Even though State didn’t turn out the way many of the runners had envisioned, they didn’t quit and finished the season to the best of their abilities! Thank you to our Coaches for all the support and guidance provided to the kids every day. It is greatly appreciated!
Best wishes to all our Senior Athletes as they move on to college! Hopefully all of them will continue running and competing. There are plenty of local races for them to shine in; whether they stay in state or out of state.
Thank you to our sponsors — Raising Cane’s and Sole Sports. Please visit them if you can!
We all wished there was a bit more sun making it into the Pavilion for the banquet as it was a bit brisk for our brunch! It was a great way to recognize our athletes for their efforts throughout the season. The mini-donut truck and burritos were a big hit! Thank you to our Boosters for organizing and the volunteers that helped make it memorable.
Remember to upload pictures to the Shutterfly site from the banquet and State meet. Thank you to all the parents who took photos and uploaded them as well as Maria Gonzales and Hannah Garcia for being team photographers, capturing moments that we do not always observe.

Stay tuned for more information about helping at the Mesa Marathon on Feb. 4, 2023. We plan on doing an aid station again and earn some money handing out water, Gatorade and gels to the runners. Those who helped last year had a lot of fun and it was over before we even knew it. It is a great way to give back to the running community as well as earning some volunteer hours (hint, hint…juniors and seniors).
