Participating in sports provides an important connection to the school, plays a key role in student development, and should be a positive experience. My focus is two-fold. First, participants are student-athletes with a focus on the student/academic aspect and second, it is incumbent on a coach to create a positive environment for the student so their experience is enjoyable, regardless of ability.




  • We will have practice Monday-Friday. Monday-Thursday is after school, Friday will be an early morning before school practice 6:15-7:30 am. Runners should change into their running gear before practice and are expected to be on time for an adequate warm-up to prevent injuries.
  • Runners should have a light breakfast prior to Friday practices. Students will be able to change after practice and a more filling breakfast should be sent with them. Hydration is critical and runners should carry a water bottle with them to drink/fill during the day to maintain hydration.
  • Practice outlines will be provided to runners. We will have days with a sole focus on running but also incorporate stretching, rolling, strength training, and plyometric exercises for speed and strength.
  • There will be approximately 6 meets that will take place during the season. Once finalized, times and dates will be communicated.

Students who are not cleared through the Athletic Department will not be allowed to participate.


All students must maintain a 2.0 GPA with no more than one F grade.
