Cross Country

Centennial Middle School Braves - Best Middle School in Montrose
2019 Cross Country
Welcome to the 2019 Montrose Middle School cross country season.  The season begins on August 26 and concludes on October 12.  Practices will be after school at Centennial Middle School from approximately 3:50-5:00 each day.  Columbine students will run to Centennial as a team after school for a warmup run and then parents can pick up their kids from Centennial once practice ends.  Days prior to meets we may get out a little earlier (approximately 4:50).  Athletes must have a current physical (within the past 12 months) on file and pay the athletic fee in order to participate.  Each athlete also needs to have emergency contact information on file in the office.  Students can pick up an athletic packet at the front office that has all the required paperwork.  The money goes towards transportation to meets, uniforms and other expenses.  If you have any questions, please contact the Centennial office. 

            Everyone who comes out for cross country will be given the opportunity to compete in meets.  In order to compete, students must be at all practices unless otherwise excused by a coach.  Missing practice jeopardizes competing in the next meet.  Students with more than two unexcused practices will no longer be on the team.  Students must also remain eligible in order to compete.  Eligibility checks are done every week.  To remain eligible, a student must have no F’s in any class and have no discipline referrals.  The dates of the meets are as follows:


Sept 7                                                   Hotchkiss

Sept 14                                                 Gunnison

Sept 20                                                 Ridgway (Ridgway Reservoir)

Sept. 27       Delta ( Sweitzer Lake)

Oct 4                                                    Delta (Confluence Park)

Oct 12                                                  Montrose (MHS)

 Please note that the above dates and times are subject to change.  Prior to each meet students will be given a letter to bring home with more specific details about each meet.  Boys and girls compete separately in all of the above meets.  You may also find updated info on our team website at or by signing up for Remind.    

            Races are approximately one and a half to two miles in length.  Cross country is a sport that emphasizes sportsmanship, teamwork and a good work ethic.  Students who participate are expected to meet these high ideals and become positive leaders and role models for others to follow.  The coaches value your support of this goal.  If you have any questions about cross country please feel to contact us at CMS or CTMS during normal school hours.

Change of Sports Process

 Students athletes will not be able to practice or play until ALL paperwork and payment have been made. Once the student-athlete is cleared they will receive a yellow pass which then will be given to the coach. The student-athlete will then be able to participate.

Please check announcements and website to find out when the start date for when each sport begins.
