News and Updates

This photo says it all guys, this does not happen in Middle School Cross Country anywhere else in the State Of Ohio and maybe not even in the country. This was one of our main goals when we started out 10 years ago to get Cross Country athletes the kind of recognition, respect and visibility that they deserve and OTHER sports get. The pride I felt while looking down at the awards ceremony Sunday is something beyond words. A parent asked me prior to this if they should stick around or just grab their daughters medal and head home...This picture gives a very clear answer to that Question.

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.
