We have retired the Pirate High School XC Invitational
After a 20 year run as one of the premier high school XC meets in eastern North Carolina, we have decided to retire the Pirate HS Invitational. We will not be hosting the event in 2018. There were a variety of reasons for the decision, most we had been contemplating for several years, and the timing this year helped us make the decision.
When we started in 1997 the lake was just a lake and training facility, it is now the Overtons home. Mr. Overton and his family and staff have been tremendous with their time and energy, and for allowing us to take over their home one day a year!
Additionally we appreciate all of the ECU T&F/XC athletes and coaches who provided volunteer assistance. When I started the meet in 1997 I was coaching ECU. After I retired from coaching the staff kept the meet going for a few years before handing it back to me in 2010. The ECU athletes continued to be involved as a volunteer service function, we could not have done it without them.
We also appreciate all of the high school coaches and athletes who have been a part of the event over the years, its been fun!
Thank you for being a part,
Coach Choo and "the crew"
