The high school cross country season will soon be upon us! This year should be another great one in the Greenville area. Here are few of the things going on in the area:
ECU will be hosting the 4th annual Bill Carson Track & Field Invitational on April 7th & 8th. Several top schools will be competing including NC State, Charlotte, Troy, Citadel and Coastal Carolina.
Coach Choo Track Club is once again organizing the volunteer crew. We need 40-50 individuals to assist the USATF officials with a number of different aspects of the meet. Volunteers are needed to check in athletes and officials, assist announcers, rake pits, move hurdles, shuttle athletes on to the track, count laps and a variety of other jobs. We will provide a free meet T-shirt and lunch for those volunteering. Let us know if you are interested in volunteering, we will add you to our communication list!

Tentative meet schedule
New Bern's boys and Conley's women had to overcome different sets of weather conditions, but the results were the same as they posted dominating performances to win against several other schools in an ECC league meet on Wednesday.
The results are in! What a day! 7 races, 40+ schools, 1500+ runners in all between the Bo Run and the CoopStrong 3k. Due to the size of the meet we debuted a new chip timing system (needed to help us deal with the large number of runners finishing in such a short period of time! ) After some initial challenges the system worked great! We cross checked chip results with the hand results to ensure we posted accurate results.
Middle School 3k
A huge thank you goes out the the parents, coaches and runners of DH Conley HS for their efforts with the finish line and meet administration. Kudos to Sharon Justice (Mrs. Choo!), Andi Workman (little Choo), Dylan Justice, and Jason Workman for their expert timing work! Coach Dennis Gibson cut the grass and pained the lines, making the course look professional, and Beth Ann Wilkie took charge of the middle school awards to make sure we got that right. South Central's Coach, Lisa Cox, made sure the trails were in top notch shape. We thank Greenville Parks and Recreation department for letting us invade Boyd Lee Park! Brooks Running provided banners and bibs so we could "Run Happy"!
