Cross Country

 

Always check here for the most information and stay abreast of current happenings through Twitter   

Next meet is the PIAA District One Championships on Friday, October 27, at Lehigh University's Saucon Valley Campus (NOT at the University itself!; follow directions to Stabler Arena or the football stadium). The team is the defending District One AA Champions! Go team!

Varsity competes at 11:30am, JV at 12:30pm. 

Only 13 members have chosen to compete at the District Championships at Lehigh University on Friday, 10/27.

 
Retreats for Juniors/Seniors

For 2017-18 Seniors/Juniors, please note that retreats are scheduled for 

October 18 - 21, 2017
Nov 29 - Dec 2, 2017
Jan 31 - Feb 3, 2018

As much as possible, Cross Country and Track & Field Athletes are asked to attend the November/December Retreat to avoid potential conflicts with important competition dates.

Missed Fall Sports Registration? Not to worry! You can still join our team!  
The only true requirement is that before official practice begins on August 14th the PIAA required physical form (CIPPE) must be already on file with the school. The CIPPE is available on the school's athletic page of the website for download and printing.
The best way to return the form is not to use snail mail, but rather to scan the forms and send them to the athletic director at jstewart@holyghostprep.org. The second best way is to drop the forms off at the school after June 1st (the CIPPE [student physical signed by doctor] must be dated after June 1st for the following school year) during summer business hours of 9am to 2pm. 
We are still finishing our Outdoor Track & Field season at HGP. Look at a later date for the updated information for the 2017-2018 Cross Country Season at http://www.holyghostprep.org/xc. For now, review very similar information from last year at that same address.
Thank you for your interest in HGP XC.

  "The winners in life think constantly in terms of 'I can, I will, and I am.' Losers, on the other hand, concentrate their waking thoughts on what they should have or would have done, or what they can't do." - Dennis Waitley

THE TIME IS NOW! -- USE YOUR BLESSINGS!

"To whom much is given, much is expected!" - Luke 12:48


Holy Ghost Prep welcomes any student who is willing to work hard and try to improve themselves. Almost all students who attend practice with positive attitudes become and remain team members, whom eventually excel beyond their previously demonstrated capabilities. Come join us and become an even better student-athlete!
