We're at the Mayor's Cup today, including the boys Championship race

The Dragons will be at the big Mayor's Cup race today, with our varsity getting its first chance to run in the Championship race with 18 of the city's best teams. It's the one chance that we get to run against schools from Catholic and independent schools. The varsity race distance is 2.5 miles, and for freshmen it 1.5 miles. Here's Prasid Gupta in last year's varsity race.

First races this coming week

The boys and girls teams will be facing their first test this coming Monday in the borough-wide Grand Prix #1.  Completing against some of the best teams in the city--Stuyvesant, Laguardia, Hunter, and Beacon--we will get a good sense of where we stand and how much work we have to do. The team is well prepared physically and is mentally focused for Monday's contest.  The citywide Group Run (and Family Picnic) will be a few days later on Saturday, September 26. Here's a first group photo of the team and a link to our updated, and final, team calendar.

Dragons Fly on Monday August 17

The Summer Dragons, about a dozen in all, have been keeping in shape with runs in Central Park on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Thanks to Michael Alvin for organizing that!

Team practices will be starting soon-- August 17th-- three full weeks before school begins! The first day will include tryouts runs for incoming freshman and those on the provisional roster.

Qualifying runs for the Varsity and JV-A squads will be held on Friday September 11.

To attend the first practice, everyone needs to bring (or have on file) a current PSAL Sports Medical form as well as a NEW Parent Permission form.  Both can be found on this website under the "How To Join" tab.
