Cross 2020

Post by Redbird CC Fan »

Will be curious how season unfolds. Looks like cross teams will pick up runners who might normally have done soccer or even football. Not sure how these runners might perform in a shortened season, but could really help some schools. Those same runners will then go from spring soccer directly to summer track.

Season got under way Saturday at Dunlap! Pekin girls and boys swept Dunlap but lost to Morton. All the meet scores were close...kids just seem happy to be running!

Specific details. Not sure why the IESA and IHSA couldn't have planned and done something very similar. Good opportunity for the kids and seemingly a safe set up as well.

Another option for end of season XC competition.

Illinois coaches group planning virtual 5K ‘state’ championship for high school cross country.

"Each high school coach can organize a 5-kilometer time trial for his team’s varsity and junior high athletes on the school track, with social distance protocols in place. The times are then posted on Athletic.net."

Not much distance between girls team 2-5 and boys teams 1-4....conference meet should be very interesting
