St. Andrew Drexel Hill is running a canned food drive, you can drop off at their tent. (BTW - Corpus Christi raised nearly $600 for Catholic Relief Services last month at a meet last month, so thank you!)

Old News:
As the forecast has not gotten any better, and in some ways worse, we have officially postponed Archdiocesan Champs to Sunday, November 5th. I am reminded of a great quote from Olympian Brenda Martinez at the 2016 US Olympic Trials - "God's delays are not His denials". We'll get our meet in, just need to be smart about it.
Next Sunday's meet will be simultaneously the Archdiocesan Championship meet and a Eastern Regional Qualifying meet for Nationals for all athletes. (but only CYO athletes will attend). We are in the process of working on the details, but everyone who submits paperwork (and checks!) will be simultaneously entered in both meets. CHECK BACK FOR START TIME CHANGE FOR NEXT SUNDAY
Families who intend to go to Nationals are alerted that there is still a seeding meeting at 7pm tomorrow at St Anastasia School to plan the various teams and individuals going to Nationals. Paperwork and checks (payable to Philadelphia CYO Cross Country).
