2014 Cross Country Season Summary
The Cross Country season kicked off with the registration meeting and first practice on September 2nd at Sanlando Park. The first race of the season was the Track Shack UCan Finish 2-Mile road race at UCF on October 19th with the Gliders winning several age divisions. On October 25th, the Gliders hosted its annual cross country meet for the 16th consecutive year at the Seminole Softball Complex and Sanlando Park. This year, the race was the qualifier for the FLYRA Middle School State Championship rather than the AAU District meet because the AAU National XC Championship no longer requires qualifiers.
Over the next few weeks, the Gliders performed well in the FLYRA Middle School State Championships and high school and college conference and district meets. In mid-November, several Gliders competed and medaled in the high school state championships in Tallahassee.
In December, for the first time in 20 years the Gliders elected not to attend either the USATF or AAU National XC Championship. The AAU championship in Lawrence, Kansas conflicted with the Seminole County Middle School XC Championship where the Gliders earned 1 gold and 2 silver medals. The USATF championship in Myrtle Beach, SC turned out to be too financially and logistically cumbersome as it required an additional trip to Myrtle Beach for the qualifier.
The Gliders finished up the cross country season in mid-December with a year-end bowling party, awarding 2 college scholarships to Gliders at two universities, and continuing its tradition of helping several needy families during the holidays. Through the generous donations of our present and past members, the Gliders were able to provide over $3,600 in support to several needy families in 2014.
Many thanks go to the Track Shack Foundation and many other donors for supporting our cross country team and charitable efforts this season. www.cfgliders.com
