Cross Country

Question: Is it true that the new cross-country coaches have little to no experience as runners? {July 10, 2015}

Yes this is true.  The two coaches that have been hired by the Board of Education are both new teachers to the district, and both have athletic backgrounds as interscholastic sports athletes, but not in the area of cross country.  Both individuals, with their personal and professional qualities, coupled with their athletic experiences, make them excellent candidates to work with our student-athletes.  Additionally, the administration worked to secure coaches with more cross country experience, but all avenues pursued did not produce a single interested candidate.  LaBrae Local Schools thanks the two coaches hired for their willingness to take on this endeavor and their enthusiasm for working with our student-athletes, for without them the 2015 LaBrae Cross Country season would have likely been cancelled.
