Letter Winning Guidelines:
Runners must earn an average of at least 1 team point per race (through conference meet) to earn a varsity letter. Team points are earned as follows (assuming full team):
1st on varsity team: 7 points
2nd: 6 points
3rd: 5 points
4th: 4 points
5th: 3 points
6th: 2 points
7th: 1 point
Any junior varsity runner finishing with a faster time than a Viroqua varsity runner will earn a team point.
Runners must compete in at least half of the meets for the season, barring injury.
Runners must participate in LPs (Letter winner practices).
Points may be deducted for discipline or attendance issues.
Runners must finish the season in good standing.
Runners will be given the chance to earn extra team points as follows:
School spirit point: earned by runners attending at least 6 other Viroqua fall athletic events.
Academic point: earned by runners maintaining a 3.5 GPA for the season.
Other chances may be given during the season. These will be discussed in team meetings.
Seniors who have competed on the team for 4 years are eligible to earn a letter based on commitment to the team and the sport rather than on points.
Final point and letter winning decisions will be made by the coach.
- Most Valuable Runner: Team points will be given the most weight in determining this award, however, the final decision is made by the coach.
- Most Improved: Improvement in times over last season will be used to determine this award.
- Rookie of the Year: Team points will be given the most weight in determining this award, however, the final decision is made by the coach.
