• Cross Country

    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 4, 2018.  The first actual day of running will take place on Wednesday, September 5.  

    This year's first turnout day "practice" (player/athlete meeting) is scheduled from 2:30pm-4:00pm 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.
    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 a local doctor doing for a $25 donation (donation money will be given back to the school).  Physicals and fall sports night will be available on Wednesday, August 22, 2018, from 3:30pm-6:30pm at Lakeside Middle School.  No preregistration is required; however, please print off a Physical Form from the LMS Athletics "Eligibility Paperwork" link and take with you if you wish to take advantage of this opportunity.  Athletes may also choose to use their own doctor, however.
