• Cross Country - 2019-2020


    Cross Country season begins the first day of school each year.  It is just a runner/coach meeting and equipment hand-out day.  Physical practice actually begins the second day of the season. 
     
    This year's first turnout day is Tuesday, September 3, 2019.  The first actual day of running will take place on Wednesday, September 4.  

    This year's first turnout day "practice" (player/athlete meeting) is scheduled from 2:30pm-4:30pm in room 701 (Coach Blank's classroom).  Please be sure to make arrangements for your son/daughter to be picked up from school soon after the meeting.
     
    All eligibility paperwork MUST be completed online via Final Forms (available August 1, 2019) in order for players to be eligible to begin practicing.  NO paperwork will be accepted via HARD COPY (other than an athlete's current doctor's physical clearance form); all eligibility paperwork MUST be completed online.  
     
    Physicals are required of all student-athletes at LMS. They are good for a period of 2 years.  Doctor's physicals may be obtained through a family doctor, or families may choose (this year) to take advantage of a PTN-sponsored physical by local doctors for a $25 donation (donation money will be given back to the school).  Physicals and preliminary fall sports sign-ups will be available on Tuesday, August 20, 2019, from 9am-12:30pm at Lakeside High School or on Tuesday, August 27, 2019, from 3:30pm-6:30pm).  Please print off the forms for the physical (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1dbwBO3wAB3GYF2K9FxedX3hL8nggz_Nq/view) and take with you that evening.  This process is a walk-in process; no preregistration is required.
