Dear Athletes and Parents,

Thank you to everyone who came out to show their support for CPXC! Thank you to the parents who decorated our pavilion! 

In case you missed it, the lady bulldogs secured their spot in a very tough regional to compete next Saturday in the Semi-State at New Prairie. I would highly encourage as many athletes and parents to come, especially if you are hoping to be compete in the top 12 as one of your goals. As a team we finished 3rd behind Lake Central and Munster.  Many of the girls ran their best Lemon Lake times (our course is one of the toughest) and Hannah Wylie set the new course record of 18:34.  

There are four semi-states and the top 6 teams will advance to the State Meet and those next 10 individuals who do not make it on a team will compete as an individual. The race times are 10:30 (boys) and 11:00 (girls). 

Our boys won the regional title by one point! Congrats to the boys team! 

We hope to see as many parents and athletes at the semi-state!

Go CPXC!

Dear Parents and Athletes,

This past Saturday the girls were a part of a meet that hosts over 1000 cross country runners. One of the biggest and highly anticipated meets of the season! Thank you to everyone who attended the meet!

Even with the sloppy course conditions we had 7 girls ran a PR! Congratulations to everyone! 

Here is the link to the results:  http://npcorp.npusc.k12.in.us/high_school/athletics/crosscountry/results.htm

This coming Saturday a majority of the girls will be racing in the Highland Invitational.  I have managed to get a select amount of girls into the Culver Invite. We will have a spot next year and will not be going to Highland. This meet change was made prior to me taking over the program. I will be taking 8 girls to the Culver Invite while Coach Bickel and Coach Kleinaman will take the rest of the squad to the Highland Invite. I will have who is racing in Culver posted after tomorrow's practice. 

Good news! We will be having our first ever team banquet at Youche 11/22 and it will be a brunch this year.  Mrs. Zimmerman is finalize everything (Thank you!!) and more information will be available once it is finalized. Remember to attend the parent's club meeting this week if you are available.  I'm sure there are a lot of parents who have some great ideas for the club :)

Dear Athletes and Parents,

Thank you to everyone who came out to support the Lady Bulldogs at the Bob Thomas Invite.  Also, thank you to all of the parents who provided the snack packs and smoked meat! 

On Saturday, we finished 5th out of 19 teams. It was muddy, rainy (until the JV race) and a true cross country race as far as conditions! 

This week we will be traveling to the New Prairie Invite. This is an extremely large invite with three class races and a JV race for boys and girls. I will be posting race information as soon as I receive everything.  

We are finalizing everything with the end of the season banquet and will be sending out information within the next week.  If you have yet to donate to the parents club and would like to do so ($20) that money can go towards the banquet.  As of now, we are looking at the banquet costing around 20+ per person. 

This week's pasta party will be held at Devin DeBoth's house and Melaine Albers will be providing team snack packs at the meet. 

Stride On,

Coach Moskalick
Coach Bickel
Coach Kleinaman

Dear Parents and Athletes,
 
We will be having practice tomorrow (Labor Day) from 8:00-10:00am at CPHS.
 
In my 17 years of running/coaching cross country this is the first time I've ever experienced a cross country meet being cancelled. Yes, there has been the occasional delay but an actual cancellation is a first! With that being said, the only race to have taken place was the Girls Freshman/Sophomore race.  The others ended up coming back to school and doing a 1.5 mile time trial. Thank you to all of the girls for having a positive attitude about this Saturday! 
 
This Saturday (9/12) we will be racing at the Bob Thomas Invite at Lowell. This is going to be a big race as there will be 24+ teams and all of the DAC schools. As coaches, we encourage all parents to do their best to come cheer on their daughter.
 
Thank you to the parents who brought cold wet towels, Gatorade, water, snacks and etc. 
 
Also, we have finalized a date for the banquet which will be 11/22 (Sunday). The location is TBA but hopefully in the next week or two that will be finalized.  This year we are going to use the banquet as our awards ceremony.  We will present the MVP award at the Fall Awards but will not have a break out session afterwards.  Fall Awards are schedule for 11/18.
 
Please look over the important dates/information.
 
Bob Thomas Invite will be posted this week.

Dear Parents and Athletes,
 
First, thank you to all of the parents who helped with our CP Invite.  From bringing the cold, wet towels, cake, senior gifts, to even the brats/hotdogs it was fantastic to see all of the fan support! The Lady Bulldogs had a great first showing in this early part of the season. For the next two months we are focusing on getting the girls ready for October (DAC, Sectionals, Regionals, Semi-State and hopefully state). As we are approaching a high mileage month for the girls, we are asking all parents to make sure your daughters are getting the right amount of sleep each night (8-9 hours), drinking enough water (8-10 glasses), eating healthy, and doing all of the small things to keep themselves healthy!
 
This week is going to be extremely warm in temperatures (85-90 degrees) please make sure to be hydrating properly and taking care of your body to avoid dehydration and heat exhaustion.
 
If you are still interested in donating to the parents club (thank you to those who donated on Wednesday) Mrs. Wylie will be accepting cash donation ($20) at each meet.
 
We will be having our first pasta party on Thursday at the high school.  Thank you to the parents who are hosting the first pasta party.
 
Please look over the important dates and information.
 
We will be having practice on Labor Day (8-10am). Practice is still mandatory. If your daughter is missing practice this will go towards 1 of the 6 excused practices she can have for the season. Please do your best at making sure your daughter is at practice as this is a hard workout day and these days are critical in your daughters training.
 
Stride On,

Dear Athletes and Parents,
 
We have a lot going on this week and can’t wait to get the season started with the CP Invite on Wednesday at Lemon Lake. We hope that all parents and friends can make it to our invite as it will be the seniors last time running this race! We will be having a celebration for the seniors after the conclusion of awards, we hope that everyone can stay afterwards to mingle and get to know one another.
 
Monday (tomorrow) we will be having a team fundraiser at Chick-Fil-A in Merrillville from 5pm-7pm.  Please make an effort to come with your family and friends.  All money will go back to the girls in the form of t-shirts, locker signs, food, and etc.
 
We have new uniforms this year, we need all girls to bring their uniforms back Monday or Tuesday to exchange out for the new ones. If you plan on keeping your old uniform please keep it at home and let Coach M know when you get your new uniform.  All of the girls will be filling out a uniform sheet to help keep track of inventory.
 
Also, we have only had two parents fill out the google doc for the pasta parties/banquet information.  I would like for everyone to fill this out by Wednesday. I (Coach M) will be contacting you directly if you do not fill this out. Please take 5 minutes to complete this, we need to know ASAP so we can start to plan the banquet.
 
 
Also, if you are interested in the spirit wear there will be attachments you will need to look over and fill out the order form.  Please bring the order form to the CP Invite and give to Coach M.
 
**We still need parents to sign up for the pasta parties**
 
Please read the important dates below.

Dear Athletes and Parents,

As we are approaching the beginning of the school year this week, we will be switching our practice schedule times starting Monday. Every Friday we will be having morning practice from 5:15 to 6:45. Please look over the times at the bottom of this email.

This year we will be starting a Parents Club and would like to involve as many parents as possible.  As coaches, we understand the importance of parent involvement and would like to build a family environment where parents and athletes are supportive of each other. I have attached a letter from a group of parents who have met to discuss and brainstorm for the parents club. We encourage everyone to be a part of this great opportunity that will only help to make each girl and the team as a whole successful in the years to come! If you are interested in the parents club please email Coach Moskalick


Please fill out this survey via google doc. The survey is to see which parents would be interested in spirit wear (separate from the parent shirt) and who would attend the end-of-season banquet (please enter in how many family members would come including the athlete). The banquet ideas include having a catered dinner at the high school or at a restaurant. Also, we have many spots still available for pasta parties and snack packs. We have over 30 girls on this team, we should be able to have all of these spots filled up.  We understand having a pasta party at someone's house is a lot of work if you are interested in having it at the high school and want to work with another parent please fill out the sheet with your names and which meet. 

Available Dates: Pasta parties (9/3 - 10/1 - 10/8 - 10/15) Snack Packs (9/26 - 10/10 - 10/17 - 10/24)
