Thanks for a great day, it was perfect in every way.
A mild sunny day brought the toughest competition for middle school and sixth grade and under runners at Groveport yesterday. We couldn't be more proud to have been a part of these amazing athletes' big day. Thank you to the runners, parents, coaches, Mike and the Finish Timing gang, our officials, Milesplit, Xtreme Limo with the best drivers, Mike and his crew at Fine Designs on-site custom apparel, the staff at Groveport, especially Jason Brooks for hand crafting a spectacular course for the kids to run and everyone that contributed to make this a memorable day.
We hope to see over 100 teams 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!!

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.
Coaches, Athletes and Parents This is a post season event. This Cross Country event nor the Middle School Athletic Association is affiliated with, sponsored by or sanctioned by the OHSAA in any way. Athletes may only run in one race during the State Championships. Any runners found to have entered 2 races will be disqualified .
