St. Joseph School Cross Country is open to both boys and girls, grades 4 thru 8.
Coaches: Mr. Mike McDermott and Mr. Jim Neil
Cross Country meets are on Wednesdays at Goddard Park. The schedule is as follows:
September 7, boys at 4:30, girls at 5:30
September 14, girls at 4:30, boys at 5:30
September 21, boys at 4:30, girls at 5:30
September 28, girls at 4:30, boys at 5:30
October 5, boys at 4:30, girls at 5:30
The state meet is going to be October 12 at Slater Park in Pawtucket, starting at 4 o'clock, with the girls running first.
Practice will begin the first week of September with a full practice on Monday nights at 5:30 in West Warwick and a more informal practice on Friday nights at 5:30; we'll probably mix up the locations of those.
One thing this year is different: CAL is allowing us to have a "B" meet on Wednesdays before the main meet -- so probably at 4 p.m. -- for fourth and fifth graders, on a shorter course. They've done those in the past but not during the last couple years because of COVID and wanting to keep the number of people at meets under control.
We are excited our 4th and 5th graders will have this opportunity.
Deadline for sign up is Monday, August 22.
Registration fee: $50
