Wednesday Potluck!

Potluck! Wednesday 10/5 from 6:30pm - 8:00pm @ 1428 North 53rd Street (home of Penn Anderson).

Annual Parent Chili Feed and Fundraiser

The long standing tradition of the Roosevelt Boys Cross County XC-Mob continues! Please join us at the Fulton home on Friday October 14 for a simple supper, good conversation, and the opportunity to raise money for our boys as they turn in one of their best seasons in recent memory. We’ll provide the Chili, bowls, napkins, and utensils, and each family is asked to bring a salad, cornbread, or a desert based in last name. 

We’ll pass the hat (all checks should be made out to "Roosevelt Athletic Boosters / Boys XC”) and use he proceeds to support post-season travel, uniforms, senior gifts, and other incidentals not covered by the District. Coach Collier will make an appearance to talk about the season to date and our plans for Metro and Districts.

This is a fun event and a great opportunity to get to know the faces you see out on the course.  We sincerely hope you can make it, and especially welcome program alumni who are running at the next level or simply would like to stay in touch with the program.

Please RSVP to, and we’ll see you on the 14th. Parking is readily available on 46th, 75th, or on 45th on the East side of View Ridge Park.

Athlete of the Month for September 2016

XC Mob,
Coach Collier and other Roosevelt coaches were asked to nominate our first Athlete of the Month for the 2016-17 school year.  The nominating criteria defined by Athletic Director Mr. Katinas are based on the RHS core values as they relate to the spirit of athletic competition, performance, and academic achievement. Each athlete nominated will be recognized by the school, and one female and one male will be selected as the Roosevelt Rough Rider “Athlete of the Month.”

RHS Core Values:

Passion: always competing, a “want to do” attitude instead of “having to do”
Respect: of self, teammates, opponents, officials, and the game
Integrity: participating with honesty to the written and unwritten rules
Determination: commitment, discipline, and sacrifice to finish
Excellence: pursuing ones athletic, academic, and personal best

Congratulations to Jack Bylund, selected by Coach Collier as our Boys Cross Country nominee for the month of September!

Potluck Tuesday September 13 6:30-8:00

Our long-standing tradition continues!

For those of you new to the team the XC Mob typically convenes at a host home along with the Girls team on the evening before a meet for a potluck. Runners are encouraged to attend and to bring either a healthy entree or a salad to feed 6-8. These are low-key events designed to build team camaraderie and are for runners only, though host parents are onsite. 

The Sanford Family (Nate and Henry) have graciously volunteered to host this year’s first gathering. Their address is 1301 NE 63rd Street. Potlucks start at 6:30 and end promptly at 8:00. 

Go Riders!
