2014 Ram Invitational

The 33rd annual Ram Invitational and the 13th Annual Middle School Ram Invitational were a huge success!  Thank you to the 70 High Schools and 16 Middle Schools for attending, and we hope to see you again next year!

13th Annual Middle School Ram Invitational

Every year on the Friday before the last Saturday in September we hold the Middle School Ram Invitational.  It is a great opportunity for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders to run against their own age group and experience a taste of what a high school invitational is like.  125 individual medals, 6 individual plaques, and 6 team plaques were awarded to a really talented group of young athletes.  We hope this meet can inspire these kids to continue to develop as runners and hopefully we’ll see them at the High School Ram Invitational as well!

With 70 schools and 2,300 registered runners this was a really big Ram.  I can not thank enough the teachers, school staff, parents, family, friends, and alumni that were on hand to make this meet possible.  Volunteers were everywhere from the snack bar, the finish line, on the course, at the first aid table, awards table, scoring table… everywhere.  I really don’t know what we would do without all of your help year after year.  Thank you!

This year also the Ram athletes themselves stepped up with extra efforts by helping at the meet.  Great job Rams!

It’s not easy to earn a medal at The Ram so congratulations to the 9 Rams who’s efforts on the course earned one.

Congratulations: Anwar Alghaithy, Victor Bautista, Glen Collado, Mariela Francisco, Grace Leung, Omar Shatrat, Roberto Villarreal, Jason Mattos, and Jeromy Cruz!

Not everyone can earn a medal, but everyone can make that effort to improve.  Hard work pays off and yesterday at the Ram well over half of the Rams got their all-time course PRs.  A number of others got season PRs.
