Glacier Bears off and running


The Haines High School cross-country team is off and running as of Aug. 1 to prepare for the 2016 season.

Head coach Keri Ewing said his squad practices Monday through Friday from 5 to 6:15 p.m. New runners are encouraged to attend. Student athletes will add a day to this week’s practice schedule to run in the 2016 Totem Trot 5K Fundraiser Aug. 13.

Twelve runners were attending practice last week, but Ewing said other team members are out of town and will join after the first day of school Aug. 23.

“I’m encouraged by the number of underclassmen out this year,” Ewing said.

The Glacier Bears will compete in their first meet Sept. 3. Only individual runners who have attended 10 practices will be eligible to participate in the race.

This is Ewing’s first year coaching cross country, replacing Tara Bicknell. He is also the track and field coach. Ewing will be joined by Chandler Kemp and Alixanne Goodman as assistant coaches.
