Welcome Back Bulldogs!

It was great to see everyone today (at the same time) at practice – lots of new faces and familiar ones too. As we get ready to start our competitions for cross country a few house keeping items need to be completed.

  1. All athletes must be cleared. Please go to your Register My Athlete account and update to the current school year and select cross country
    • Physicals are good for one year from the date. If you need to get a physical schedule one ASAP with your family physician, chiropractor (ask for a sports physical), Urgent care.  Remember to bring your form to be signed. Forms can be downloaded from the site or ask coach for a copy
    • New to Buena Sports?  You will need to create an account on Register My Athlete.  Follow the directions here: https://registermyathlete.com/
  2. Sign up for XCSTATS  https://xcstats.com/index.php on the main page select the schools, find Buena High School and then create an account. Our code is luvs2run!

OUR first XC competition is on Saturday Aug 25 for the Hoka One One 2 Mile at the Buena High School Track.  First race is at 7 pm, athletes need to be at Buena at 6 pm

We are looking forward to this season! Coach Burns

Harmon Canyon Trail

On Saturday at 8 am, we have the opportunity to run (hike, walk) the Harmon Canyon trail. It’s the trail that goes next to Missionary church and the Clearpoint homes. Hopefully soon the trail will be open to the public. The girls distance team will be there.  (Boys – check with your coach.)  As well as some runners from VHS and FTHS. Parents and family (dogs on leashes too) can join us. Everyone that is going to be there needs to sign and bring the attached waiver – see attachment below (The trail is still private property)

Park on Kimball Rd and then cross Foothill at the light, then walk to the first driveway and this will take you to the beginning of the trail.



Boogie Nights and Volunteer Oppty

Boogie Nights is a major fundraiser for our team that not only benefits XC but also track and field. We are encouraging our sprints, jumps, throws athletes to come out and volunteer along with our distance kids.

We would also love to see more parents participate in this race either in a single race or sign up for the series 7 week = $115, this is just over $16 per race and includes a light meal (previous meals were wraps, pull pork sandwich, hot dog, vegetarian option always served too) provided by Aloha Steak house and a beer provided by Firestone Brewery for those 21 and over. How many places can you go out to and get a sandwich or burger and beer for this price?  Plus you get outside on a Wednesday evening for some exercise- you don’t have to run – many walk, beautiful beach scenery, and most importantly it’s a fundraiser for our team.

Also,  there is an opportunity this Sunday for students to earn community service hours, $20 for our team, and pancake breakfast by volunteering at the Love Run in Westlake.  We know it’s a drive out there and it is early in the morning, but some of our student athletes need more community service hours.

Thank you for all your continued support of our Buena XC & Track and Field Team!
