Boys Varsity Outdoor Track
Since the VHSL has chosen to change the order of the seasons, we will now be heading into Indoor Track first in December. This is going to create a shift in training for all of us. With that information, we will not be doing anymore team runs/workouts until we get closer to the beginning of Indoor Track. Please check back at a closer date for Indoor workouts or updates to team workouts. Until then, keep running!!
If you are looking for outside training in track or cross country, e-mail Coach Vannie at firstname.lastname@example.org. He is the head coach of Virginia Pride Track Club and works very closely with many of our successful athletes when we are out of season.
