Jasper Cross Country Booster Club
Jerry and Vicky Mehringer-Secretary
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).
The Jasper Cross Country Awards Banquet will be held on Sunday, November 4th at the JHS Community Room. The RSVP is attached; please complete the form and return it and your payment by October 26th.
The Booster Club still has officer positions open for next season. Betty Jenkins has agreed to take the Presidents position and the Mehringerís will be staying on in the Secretary position. We are in need of a Vice-President and Treasurer. Contact Luke (634-2453 or firstname.lastname@example.org) or Betty (634-2867 email@example.com) for more information on the job duties.
Uniform costs have been received from the Athletic Department. Please forward
payment for $30 to Coach and make the payment to the Athletic Department.

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
