19th Annual Alumni Race (ALL)

Saturday, August 5
SLUH Track

At Saturday's 19th annual Alumni Race, the current team soundly defeated the alumni by the score of 20-37. Alum Jake Lepak '16 won the race, held on the SLUH track, with a two-mile time of 9:56.

In cross country scoring, you add up the finishing places of a team's top five runners, with the sixth and seventh runners typically serving as the "pushers" or tiebreakers. Low score wins. The team scored 20 with their top five scoring places being 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. The alums scored 37 with their top five places being 1, 7, 8, 9, 12. The sixth and seventh runners can displace the scorers for other teams. In this race, the sixth and seventh team members finished in 10th and 11th, pushing up the alum's score by two points.. Those are the basics of scoring any XC meet, whether there are only two teams competing or 30 teams.

Paul Burka was the team's top finisher in 10:00.9. Rounding out the team's top eight on were Reed Milnor, Noah Scott, Patrick Hetlage, Charlie Perry, Adam Mittendorf, Lucas Rackers, and Chris Staley. The freshmen were led by Daniel Hogan, who placed 16th among all team members. For everyone on the team, look for continued hard work to yield significant improvements in the weeks and months ahead.

All freshmen and sophomores will ride a bus to compete or support at O'Fallon. The freshman race is at 4:00pm and the sophomore race is at 4:45pm.

For directions to the course, held on O'Fallon's Milburn Campus, click the link above. The Milburn Campus is where the freshmen go to school; note that this is NOT the school location where the sophomores, juniors, and seniors attend.

Juniors and seniors will have their usual practice at SLUH on Wednesday.

PARKING AND STREET CLOSURES IN FOREST PARK

You should plan your arrival times with plenty of time for parking and getting to the course. Not only will our meet be attracting over 10,000 people, but there is at least one other major event in Forest Park at the same time. Due to LouFest, a major music festival happening simultaneously on Central Fields, there will be no parking in Forest Park. You should plan to park at the Science Center or the garage at Forest Park Community College and walk through the tunnel near SLUH. Each of these locations offers free parking for you (you will receive slips to validate your Science Center parking as you enter Forest Park through the tunnel). As an incentive to volunteer, though, parent volunteers will have access to parking at the park offices on the west end of Aviation Field.

On Saturday, there will be no entrance to the park from Kingshighway across from Barnes. Vehicles must enter through Hampton Avenue. The street that runs parallel to the course (Clayton) will be one way heading east, for drop off only. There will be no parking anywhere on Clayton. The golf course next to Aviation Field is planning to offer limited, pay-to-park options (weather-permitting).

Please view this attached map for a visual representation of much of the above information.

Palatine Invitational (V/JV)

Saturday, September 23
Deer Grove East Forest Preserve (Cook County Forest Preserve, 1599 Pepper Tree Dr, Palatine, IL 60074)

The Palatine Meet of Champions will take place on Saturday, September 23, in Palatine, IL, a northwest suburb of Chicago. It is a very competitive meet featuring top regional competition. We are looking forward to a great experience. Here are a few important pieces of information.

Competing athletes will be leaving SLUH around 9:00am (after 1st period) on Friday, September 22. We will be traveling by bus. The team will head to the course (Deer Grove East Forest Preserve) to look at its terrain and then head to the hotel. We are planning on having dinner at a local restaurant and staying at a local hotel. We emailed the parents of competing athletes with more specific information about dinner and the hotel, as well as information about budgeting and expenses.

On Saturday morning, we will depart for the course and run in the JV and Varsity races. The varsity race is at 10:50am and the JV is at 11:50am. Afterwards, we will grab lunch on our way back to St. Louis. The expected return time is about 8:00pm on Saturday.

Due to a road race being hosted that day at Deer Grove East Forest Preserve, parking will be at a premium. The best bet is to park at Palatine High School, 1111 N. Rohlwing Rd., Palatine, IL 60074. There will be shuttle taking spectators from the school to the course.
