Welcome friends, family, and supporters of South Milwaukee Boys & Girls Cross Country.
The 2014 Cross Country season is officially underway. The 27th Annual Alumni Run/Team Time Trial was held this morning. The results were very encourageing. Josh Janusiak won the boys race with a time of 18:18 and Maddie Wood won the girls race with a time of 21:24. 27 Alumni participated in the race and many more came to watch. The coaching staff would like to thank and alumni and fans for attending this event.
This week the team will practice at 3:00 pm each day except on Tuesday when the practice starts at 8:00 am. On Tuesday the team will travel to UW-Parkside for practice and swim at the Racine Quarry. We should be back at the high school around 12:45 pm.
This should be another exciting season of SM Cross Country. Returning letterwinners for the boys are: Seniors - Damond Dettmann, Joshua Janusiak, & Sam Zakovich; Junior - Justin Weber; Sophomore- Chris Sobczak. For the Girls: Seniors - Bristine Fowler, Capri Fowler, Amber Kriesler, Samantha Meszaros, Rebecca Schoenike; Juniors - Rebecca Heller; Sophomore - Maddie Wood.
The 2014 season has a new twist. The girls will now be running the same distance as the boys - 5,000 meters. There have been invitationals that have run the 5K, but we have never participated in those meet. It will be interesting to see how the girls adjust to this new distance.
The annual parent/athlete meeting will be held on Wednesday, August 27 in the high school PAC. The meeting will begin at 7:30 pm.
The Coaching staff will be the same as last year.
Head Coach - Stan Druckrey
Asst. Coach - Paul Hiegel
