New Website

Just a reminder that Track and Cross Country have their own pages on the SJS site.

Please ensure you look at Cross Country in the Fall and Track in the Spring.

All meet and practice info will be posted there for the respective season.

New Website

With the season concluding, we will begin using the newly launched St. James School website rather than this standalone site.

Please check that site going forward!

There will be an "Announcements" page we use to provide updates on practices, meets, etc.

Please note there are separate pages for Cross Country and Track.

SVMS Meet Recap

We closed out the 2016 season with what may have been the best conditions of the year!  It was a gorgeous Saturday morning and all our runners did really well.

The SVMS Meet of Champions is scored a bit differently than the other meets, where "teams" of runners compete for the best combined result.  This was the first time in our 5 years that we were able to field both a "Varsity" and "JV" team.  It is a real testament to the depth and experience on the team!

Congrats to all our runners, but especially to Chase Lynch (3rd grade) who continued his medal streak by placing 8th on a longer course against an older field!

Results are here.
Pictures are here. [thanks to AJ Scortino]

St. E's Meet Recap

We had a great meet on Friday, 28 October at Natirar.  This is one of the runners' favorites - and with good reason!  It's on a Friday night at a great venue.

Two of our runners medaled - Tim Griffin (8th grade) and Chase Lynch (3rd grade).  Tim's finish was especially impressive given the speed of his final kick!

Congrats to all runners who joined us!  One more meet left in the season!

Results are here for 3-4, 5-6, and 7-8 grade.
