Monte Vista looking for past cross country champsThe Monte Vista High School Alumni Fun Run has grown over the last four years to reunite cross country graduates to run against the current team, said coach Mike Davis, but he is looking for more past grads.
"It's hard to get the word out to all the families that have had kids go through the program," Davis said. "Some of the school record holders are from the mid 70's, and it would be great to reach out to them. A guy named Bill Soloman holds the mile and two-mile record, since 1972, and the recent athletes would love to meet him and hear his story."
This year's Alumni Fun Run will take place at 9 a.m., Sunday, Aug. 9, at Oak Hill Park. Davis asks alumni to telephone him at 437-8360 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
