Jasper Cross Country Booster Club

Luke Oeding-President

Jerry and Vicky Mehringer-Secretary

October 2007

Congrats to all our athletes for their effort this season. Our teams closed out their seasons with sixth place finishes at the Jasper Sectional on October 9th. The girls missed qualifying for the Crawford County Regional by 12 points, while the boys were 6 points short of advancing. The team improved throughout the year but had the misfortune of competing in a very tough sectional.

Many thanks to teammates and parents who made the trips the Crawford County regional and Bedford North Lawrence semistate to support Lacey. The state meet is at the Laverne Gibson course at Terre Haute on Saturday October 27th. The girlís race begins at 12:00 am CST (Jasper time).

Cross Country Basics!

Have you ever asked your runner about practice and been informed that they did a "fartlek" workout? If so I suspect you were probably curious as to what that involved!

Fear not, this link will define fartlek and other cross country lingo for those of you new to the sport! Click
Cross Country Basics-Glossary.. Additionally, we have created a page explaining Cross Country Scoring. Many thanks to Columbus North's team web site which provided much of the information for these links!

Visit the Links page for information regarding meet results, rankings (individual and team) and team web sites! Favorites of mine include Hoosier Authority, Crawford County, Bloomington North, and Brown County; you can visit them by clicking the blue text descriptions.
