Please be reference our practice schedule and 2020 meet schedule as outlined below!

Our typical practice week while at school will follow this schedule and will rarely change.  Stay connected to Remind messages for updates in case there are any changes in times or locations:

Group 4: all beginners who run the least mileage will finish at 3pm at school, until they get moved up to group 3.  Just ask Coach if you have questions and don't miss practice time.

Groups 2-3: run wherever the team is going and usually finish by 4:30

Group 1: normally doing more practice, does not finish strictly at 4:30 but rather as soon as they are done


Mondays/Tuesdays/Wednesdays: groups 1-3 will normally finish at Guajome Park at 4:30

Thursdays: we sometimes end at Vista Sports Park, Coach will send a Remind message

Fridays:  Normal 4:30 finish at school

When school is in session, we will typically practice during 6th period, and daily from 2:40-4:30.  We train in 4 groups, and Group 1, normally doing more practice, does not finish strictly at 4:30 but rather as soon as they are done.  You'll need to watch the Remind messages in the event a practice time or location is changed.

Cross Country is a competition where the low-score wins, where 1st place = 1 pt, 2nd= 2 pts, 10th= 10 (perfect score =15)    5 runners will score.  The #6 runner can break a tie.  The #7 runner can essentially "raise" the score of other teams but displacing them. League Cluster meets are currently scored with "invitational" scoring, where all 6 teams are against each other separately, versus a "dual" where teams go head-to-head.


Vista 15, Sage Creek 23, EC 64, SDA 120, RBV 133, O'side 162

(Vista is now 5-0 W/L, EC is 3-2, etc)


The Panther distance runners, along with Coach Putnam, Coach Brewer, Coach Nate and Coach Hayley are all looking forward to an awesome summer of Cross Country!

During Summer, we usually practice at Guajome Regional Park (night gate past the entrance on Guajome Lake Rd/76 side), from 8am-10am Monday through Thursday.  We have a 2 week dead period, so contact Coach to plan your summer trips!

High School and Middle School students should get a good pair of shoes, like suggested on our Gear link above, and sign up today!

We have a 6th period VHS PE class for all Panther CC runners, so get a note from Coach if you plan to add the class (counselors will not be adding without a note)
