2014 Archdiocesan Champs - Final Results

Congratulations to all the runners who competed on Sunday.  There were a number of great races, finishes, and an exceptionally close overall girl's team score! The individual results are online at run the day (link to the right).  We will get a season summary of times for every meet this season soon and I will post with the complete team results. For now, congratulations to our Overall Girls and Boys Champions, St. Andrews - Newtown!


Photos are online at Contrast.  You can also search their database for pictures back to 2009.

Thank you to all our volunteer coaches, officials, parents and athletes for another great season!

Regional Meet Information

Yes Card Application

Pope John Paul II will be chartering a bus to go to Nationals.  Here is the information:

  • The bus (or busses) will leave from the Pope John Paul II elementary school in the Coatesville Area (Chester County) on Thursday morning, November 20 around 7:30.  If we get multiple buses, perhaps we can arrange for different departure points.
  • The bus will leave Nashville for home around 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, November 23.
  • For budgetary purposes, plan on $140 per seat.  This could be less depending on the number of riders.  The fuller the bus, the less the cost. 
  • The cost includes all driver gratuities as well as transportation back and forth from the hotel to the XC course on Friday and Saturday.
  • We may not be able to accommodate everybody, so please have parents respond as quickly as possible to guarantee a seat.  For example, if we get 60 requests and a bus holds 56, it is not cost effective to rent two buses.
Interested parties should contact Mark Schmidt from Pope John Paul II.  Your coach has the contact infromation.

XC Results

XC Results will be posted online by Run the Day each week, usually each Sunday evening.  There is a link to the righ for their results page.  (2nd link down from top)

Reminder - Parking on the grass at Belmont Plateau is prohibited. There were a number of cars ticketed this weekend.  This information has been passed to the coaches and posted online numerous times.  Parking on the grass is at your own risk!  Parking on the grass, on the course, is definitely not allowed! Also, you can not park on the trial going back into the woods. 

(The lesson here is we should all be carpooling to help reduce the number of cars at the Plateau!)
