Re:       The Regional XC Meet 

We at Greeley County High School are proud, honored and looking forward to be hosting the 1A Regional Cross Country meet for this geographic area. We welcome each and every one of you 

We have established and will update a web page for the regional meet information on the Greeley County Website.  The address is:  http://www.greeleycountyschools.ks.schoolinsites.com, on the left side of the screen towards the bottom under “Athletics, you need to double click on “Sports”.  Then click on “2016 Regional Cross Country Information”.  To access maps of the course and other information that may be helpful to you and your fans as you prepare to come to Tribune, click on the “Files” link.  Most of the attachments are on the forms site at the KSHSAA but are also here for your convenience. 


Prairie Ridge Golf Course is located on the North edge of Tribune, on the West side of Highway 27.  Google Maps link:  https://goo.gl/maps/q9DaEGyPDUt

Regional Entry Forms

These are due in Tribune by Monday, October 17th. If you already know who will be listed on these forms, please send them as soon as possible.  The fax number to the school is 1-620-376-2465 or you can email them to me:  gregcook@tribuneschools.org 

Uniform/ Sportsmanship Cards

Be Sure you have these ready to turn in when you get here. Sportsmanship cards can be found on the last page of the CCAnnouncements.  I will have some extra at the meet if you forget yours.

Greens and T-Boxes

Please help us by reminding your kids and supporters to stay off the greens and t-boxes. We have a good relationship with the Golf Club and we would like to keep it that way.


Port-a-potties will be available on the west side of the clubhouse.  To help make sure the meet gets run off as smooth as possible, only coaches and meet workers will be allowed in the club house. 

Finish Area

There will be fruit, and water, available at the finish area for runners, coaches, and workers. Please help us patrol this area. Any trash needs to be put in the trash cans. 

Regional Shirts

We will have Regional CC shirts for $15 each.  If you know what sizes you want, pre-meet orders will be taken and the shirts will be waiting for you when you get here.  Shirts will be a Sky Blue and the designs are attached with this letter.


The results of the races will be available to coaches, in the clubhouse, after the awards are presented. We will also be post a copy of the results on our school web-site and as well as submit a copy to CatchitKansas.com.


After the meet the results will be sent to the Dodge City Globe, Hutchinson News, Wichita Eagle, Topeka Capital, and Garden City Telegram. If there are other papers that need to get the results, please e-mail the Fax number for the paper to me at: gregcook@tribuneschools.org

State Entry Forms

Should you have runner/runners qualify for State, you will need to turn in these forms before you leave the Golf Course and I will FAX them to Wamego. If you choose not to do this or forget the signed form you will be responsible for getting them to Wamego by Oct. 24.  These forms need to be signed by the Principal or AD so it would be best if you brought these with at least their signature, then you could fill out the rest before you leave. 

Games Committees

The Games Committee will consist of:  Randy Stanly from Victoria, James McMillan from South Gray, Jesse Colson from Dighton, Ed Mense from Wheatland/Grinnell/Quinter, and myself.  They will have the responsibility to check the athletes before each race to make sure they are legally equipped, and will look over the results to make sure we get the correct individual runners qualified for state.  I also ask all coaches to look over the results to double check to make sure we get all the right kids qualified.  If you see or question something that you think is wrong, PLEASE ask about it.
