Girls Racing Uniform Shorts: We have many more girls on the team than last year. We ran out of shorts. The varsity squad is required to have matching uniforms. I think we have most of them covered. If you run in a non-varsity race we'd like you wearing something close the the royal blue short. If you'd like to buy a pair of matching shorts - these are the originals, these are the spandex version.

Join the HP CCXC Booster Club Board! Are you a parent interested in helping to support the HP Cross Country and Nordic teams? The newly created Booster Club needs to fill grade-level representative positions (Middle school, 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th). The Booster Club meets roughly six times a year. It’s a fun group that works to raise money in support of both teams so that all cross country and nordic athletes can experience their respective sport in a meaningful way. We will hold a brief election at the upcoming Parent Party on Aug. 27. For more information or questions, contact Rebeca Escalante, rebeca@johngregg.org, or Sara Fabel, fabel.sara@gmail.com
