News and Updates

Great article by Ohio Mile split. Thank you Mark Stonecipher! We appreciate your efforts to get these young and future stars some recognition! http://oh.milesplit.com/articles/137736-ohio-middle-school-championships-meet-summary#.VEVi_yx0xjo

Here are the race results http://timerhub.com/get_web_index.php?page=finishtimingresults.com/2014/10-19-MSS/, will update our website and record book soon.

Thanks for a great day, it was perfect in every way. We hope to see you all next year and we are already planning some surprises and updates to make it even better and more memorable for our runners. It really is the BEST day of the cross country season!!

Everybody knows by now that we are bringing our state champs into the stadium in a Pink Hummer but did you know they are going to serenade the crowd with a song from the podium? I figure its the least they could do after taking all our trophies!! We have put together a committee of music industry giants to pick out the perfect song for them to sing and we will announce it at the meet. I am thinking Taylor Swift, One Direction or Barry Manilow. Any suggestions?
 

Teams and individual runners will be posted at Noon Thurs. Please check to make sure your info is correct and that YOU ARE registered. We had 71 teams last year and looks like we will be over that this year so THANKS EVERYBODY!!

 Still time to Book your room at Fort Rapids Waterpark Hotel located close to the venue!! Make sure to mention MSAA when you book to get the discount. We have a great rate of $89 per room and its a great place for runners from around the state to meet and hang out. CALL NOW 877-337-752

Parents and Coaches,

One of the goals of the Middle School Athletic Association is to help Track and Cross Country Athletes get the same recognition as the other sports get. You can help us accomplish that! Once your team or athlete has entered the State Meet please take some time to send a picture and short write up to your local Newspaper to announce that they will be participating in this years event. If they do well at the meet snap a photo and send to your paper as well.

Please read:
