Regionals.  A chilly enough morning that the runners were allowed to wear hats and gloves.  Concord made it though Sectionals on Tuesday and now it is time for Regionals.   The top 15 runners and 5 teams will advance to semi-state.  I didn't really expect Concord to pull this off.  In the end the team did not qualify to advance.  Cassidy had run her final race in Cross Country.  And it was a good one.  She scored a PR for the season and had a nice burst at the end.  A season that brought her struggles and triumphs ended just a hand full of seconds away from her best time ever.  It was a wonderful end.  For this father it brings a tear to my eye as I realize this phase of her life is over.  Ah, yes,  now for Track.........and I have already started reminding her to keep in shape.

 Cassidy's Cross Country Picnic 2012.  Shown above (L to R: Emily, Brandi, Laura, Cassidy).  These are the Seniors.
 A partial team picture.
 The rest of the Cross Country team presented a gift box to each of the Seniors.
 Another team picture.  Most of the team members are present in this picture.
 Just a fun picture....
Coach Juday and Cassidy.  They are off to Sectionals on the 9th.  Regionals follow then Semi-State and State.  The team would love to clear Sectionals and qualify for Regionals.   Wish them luck.

The soccer season is over for Rebecca.  She played in the 7th-12th grade division.  Her team took 2nd place losing in the championship game 4-3.  Rebecca ended up playing keeper (goalie) through the whole tournament.  Of course the goalie feels responsible.  It was tough for her but a can of olives helped her later on.

Northridge, Penn win girls cross country league meets

Check out the picture of Cassidy in the Elkhart Truth newspaper.  Click on the link "Northridge, Penn win girls cross country league meets" directly above.

Cassidy took 36th overall with a time of 21:24.  Her best time on this course is 20:54.

We were in for a treat to watch Ashley Erba run.  She goes to a competing high school.  This girl is the fastest in Indiana and ranked something like 5th in the country.  After the race she didn't wait for the awards but boarded a plane to take a college trip to Georgetown University.  She ran a 17:17.
