It ended up being a very good day for my first cross country meet as a high school head coach. Not to get into too many details, but 6 out of my 7 varsity guys medaled on their way to winning our first cross country meet of the season. For most of them it was their first cross country medal and for all of them it was their first cross country trophy. After one meet we have already beaten more schools then they beat all of last season. I was so happy that I was able to help them achieve some success this year. Besides the big smiles on their faces, and my runners saying thanks, and hugs, my coaching day became complete when the host of the cross country invitational shook my hand thanked us for coming, hoped that we will come back next year, and said we had one of the most solid squads that he has seen in a while. Like I said, it was a very good day.
