URGENT MESSAGE REGARDING LAKEVILLE RACE
There is NO BUSING for tomorrow’s race.
Unfortunately, the board receive this information this evening. Due to liability issues, the board and team representatives are unable to coordinate runners’ transportation to the race. Thus, parents will need to transport their runners to the race in Lakeville, MN. Please have your runners in Lakeville an hour before their race time.
Runners should leave Andover no later than the times listed below:
1:30 Boys JV
2:00 Girls JV
2:30 Boys Varsity
3:00 Girls Varsity
3:30 Boys C team
4:00 Girls C team
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause runners and families.
Please know that the school is working closely with transportation companies and the school district transportation department on providing transportation to future events. However, we may encounter this throughout the season.
The Andover AD is working with the Anoka High School AD to find transportation for both teams to potentially share a bus for those runners that don’t have rides. However, please do NOT count on this transportation, as they are having a difficult time obtaining transportation.
