The WPIAL has released the 2012/2013 Cross Country Championship Memo for coaches of teams in the WPIAL. Although this document is intended for coaches, it has a lot of useful information that runners and parents should know. It explains scoring, procedures, uniforms and awards. UCC is now a AA school in district 7. The top 3 teams plus the top 15 individuals will advance to PIAA states competition in Hershey on November 3rd.
The WPIAL Championships will be held on Thursday October 25, 2012 at Cooper’s Lake (Slippery Rock University course). Girls are scheduled to run at 1:30 and Boys at 3:45.
The meet for Tuesday, September 25th will be held at Penn State at 4:00pm. It is a section meet against Albert Gallatin and Thomas Jefferson.
The sport of Cross Country has always seemed to struggle to get support and attention from the general public, the school district and the media. UCC hosting one of the biggest sporting events in the county (The annual AJ Everhart Uniontown Invitational) typically comes with little awareness, recognition or fan fare. This year seemed to be different!
To the administration, teachers and other school staff who showed up to help on Saturday, we are very grateful!
A huge thanks goes to HeraldStandard.com and Jim Downey for the valuable news space and time for covering our event. Sunday’s was their first publication following a big weekend of sports, including college and high school football. High school cross country events, results and stories were well represented throughout the HeraldStandard.com sports section. Cross country was the only high school sport on the sports sections front page and cross country coverage continued throughout. The event even earned a spot on the Breaking News banner on HeraldStandard.com web site on Saturday :). Thank you HeraldStandard.com!!
Thank you to all the coaches and runners for demonstrating the highest level of sportsmanship. There is little more rewarding than watching these atheletes compete at the highest level of competition throughout the race and then see them congratulate each other on the other side of the finish line.
This event could not happen without the support and assistance of Penn State, their staff and students. Everything they provide would be too numerous to list. Thank you Penn State for our generosity to our community and our school!
UCC parents make up one of the finest sports boosters to be found. It is likely that most of the parents were more tired than their runners when the day was over. Thank you parents for your donations and dedicating your time and especially to Theresa Edenfield for all the behind the scenes work you put into UCC.
Thank you to Joe Thomas for chairing the event and helping to setup and mark the course.
Thanks to SERJ timing for making it easy to reliably track the results.
Coach Joe’s dad, for which this event is named, was a great coach with a huge legacy in Uniontown’s sports history. It is hard to us to imagine anyone as a better coach and role model for our atheletes than Joe. Thanks Coach Everhart!
