I would like to thank everyone that came to tryouts. Unfortunately, with NCHSAA restrictions on competition size in our current environment we have to make deep cuts this year. Hopefully, the underclassmen that did not make it will continue to run and we will see you back next year under different circumstances. We are working to have training groups and to put on some races this winter for non-roster athletes who are interested. To the seniors who have poured so much into the program and did not make it, I appreciate each and every one of you. This has been one of the toughest things that I have had to do in my 20 years at Myers Park. Don't hesitate to reach out if there is anything that we can do for you.
