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.

Any update on the status of the cadet girl who went down near the finish and could not continue?

I haven't heard anything since the incident, from what I was told, I believe the situation was under control and she will be ok. Thanks for asking!
