Schedule for Week of 10/12

Hello Penn Manor Jr. High Cross Country families,

Our shirt order has arrived! I will bring them to practice on Monday (pending the weather). Otherwise I will have them at practice on Tuesday.

Manheim Township was recently approved to host a Jr. High Invitation on Saturday, October 24th, as a way to give Varsity squads (8 boys and 8 girls) the chance to compete in a championship style race. This is exciting news! Since I received notification late in the week, I was unable to reach out until now. I will be contacting those athletes by the end of the weekend to see if there is enough interest for us to participate.

Monday, 10/12, NO SCHOOL, optional practice 8:30-10:00 am. I know the forecast is for significant rain so I will update the blog and Remind App on Monday morning if we need to cancel practice.

Tuesday, 10/13, Practice 3:00-4:30, there is a High School Meet, so please pick up your child on the Hambright Elementary side to avoid extra cars in the Manor parking lot. Thank you!

Wednesday, 10/14, Home meet vs. Manheim Twp. and Solanco. This is an in-person school day for Group A so we will have the regular Activity bus leaving Marticville at the end of the school day. All other athletes are asked to arrive by 3 pm to prepare for the meet.

Race Day Schedule (please note there are slight revisions with this schedule):

Boys Varsity 4:15

Girls Varsity 4:35

Combined Boys and Girls JV 5:00

The same spectator rules apply as before and are included below.

Thursday, 10/15, Season’s End Celebration 3:00-4:30 (Rain date 10/16). If your child is unable to attend, I am going to set up a Google Meet to have them join us virtually. Please email me and I will send them the link.

Friday, 10/16, Practice 3:00-4:30 for those who have been invited to run in the Jr. High Invitational at Manheim Township, followed by one more week of practices leading up to the meet on Saturday, October 24th.

It seems like every week there is a plethora of information, so please email me if you have any questions at

Thank you and GO COMETS!!!
