Northfield Nighthawk Invitational
Our next meet is the Northfield Nighthawk Invitational, on Friday, September 28 at Dicks Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, CO. This meet promises to be a cool experience as it is run under the lights around the practice soccer fields surrounding the stadium and ends inside the stadium. Our race times are:
6:00 JV Girls
6:30 JV Boys
7:00 Varsity Girls
7:30 Varsity Boys
Because we are traveling to the heart of Denver on a Friday night we will be leaving at 2:00 to ensure we make it on time accounting for Denver traffic. All athletes need to pack a substantial snack/ light dinner to eat before they run. We will stop for dinner on the way home, meaning it will be a late night, with arrival at the school expected to be after 11pm.
There are specific parking directions for buses and spectators. From the meet director:
All bus and spectator parking MUST be in the north dirt lot off Prairie Parkway. Many of the roads coming into Dick’s Sporting Goods Park will be CLOSED. The only way to access parking will be off Prairie Parkway. The ideal way to access Prairie Parkway will be off Quebec St. Head east on Prairie Parkway off Quebec St. to access the dirt lot reserved for Cross Country Event Parking.
The Cougar Classic takes place on Thursday, September 20. Race times will be as follows:
3:40 Varsity Boys
4:40 Varsity Girls
5:10 JV Boys
5:15 JV Girls

Cheyenne Mountain Stampede
The 2018 cross country season opens at the Cheyenne Mountain Stampede on Friday, August 24. The Stampede takes place at the Norris Penrose Event Center. This is the same course that will be used for State, so it will be a full day of cross country as this is the only chance for anyone to run the entire State course before State.
Our races are scheduled as follows:
