Great first race

Thank you for covering the Battle Mountain Cross Country Invitational race last Tuesday, Sept. 9. The photos and accompanying article were excellent! The Vail Daily also offered helpful pre-race notification through the Town Talk and Community Calendar sections, which contributed to an outstanding turnout.

We wish to extend a public thanks to all the parents and community members who volunteered their time to work the race, those who paid “not to run,” those who ran, and those who just came and cheered. These are the people who help to make our school programs successful, in turn creating successful young adults.

Thanks to: Lee and Mark Stevenson, Eric Johnson and Cheryl Lindstrom, John and Jeanette Vickers, John and Becky McCaulley, Brad and Karen Ghent, Pete and Sandy Van Deventer, Aaron Ciszek, Nikki Matthews, Mike and Carol McGee, Patti and Roger Pack, Cindy and Dan Allard, Brendan White, John and Kris Sunderland, Tony and Suzy O’Rourke, Valerie Ball, Heather Ojala, Mella Wheatly, Rocio Garcia, Heidi Hansen, Kim Heaton, Sandi Drechsler, Carol Wellbaum, Glenda Wentworth, Patti Erickson, Don Rogers, the Eagle-Vail Community Center, Stone Creek Meadows, the Eagle-Vail Golf Course, and Battle Mountain Athletic Director Fred Koetteritz.

Thank you for helping us build a wonderful, amazing team of multi-faceted young runners!
