On behalf of the Greater Kansas City Cross Country Coaches Association I am pleased to announce the 2019 All Metro Cross Country Teams. Thank you to all of the coaches that voted and I encourage every coach to participate next year. First team votes were counted as 2 points and HM votes were counted as 1 point. The top 25 point totals were selected with the top 10 being First Team and the next 15 being Honorable Mention. We did have one tie for the 10th and final spot on girls first team so we have 11 girls on first team this year. Please notify your athletes and parents ASAP of the awards ceremony at Saint Thomas Aquinas high school on Sunday, November 24th at 6:00 PM in the theater. Dress is casual / nice. We will honor the First Team, Honorable Mention, Runners of the Year, Coaches of the Year and the top 10 teams for both Kansas and Missouri. There is no cost to attend, all are welcome! Please send a photograph of each athlete to jwrigley@stasaints.net to be included in the presentation. We also need one team photograph from coaches for any team listed for the top 10 teams.
