• Dead Period Running
    The TSSAA Dead Period begins on Sunday, June 26, and lasts through Saturday, July 8. During this time, all ORHS athletic facilities are closed, and we may hold no official practices. For many years now, our captains and older runners have organized voluntary runs during this time for those who would prefer to continue running with others. No coaches will be present for any of these runs--all of them are athlete-organized and led, and you assume your own risk by choosing to run with the group. You do want to continue to develop your summer base whether you do these runs or not.

    Information about the run schedule is on the boys' and girls' GroupMes--including days, times, venues, and phone numbers. Please remember to hydrate--bring water. Run safely and we will see you when we resume conditioning together on Monday, July 11.

  • Charlotte Team Trip Info
    Itinerary is attached. Cost estimate is based on 45-50 athletes traveling. If fewer than 45 make the trip we may have to adjust the cost slightly, as Boosters budget has us basically breaking even on this trip. As always, if cost is an issue, please let me know and we will find a way for you to go on the trip.
