Congratulations to the Boys’ Varsity for their 3rd place team finish out of 80 teams and to the Girls’ Varsity for their 8th place finish out of 80 teams. It is an understatement to say that it was a hot day in Joplin at the Missouri Southern meet. It was fun seeing the OEXC families (past and present) cheering our team on as well as some of our alumni runners at the college level. We certainly had a lot of HAWK Pride out there yesterday! GO HAWKS!
Here are your full results: Missouri Southern Stampede
Here is the meet schedule for tomorrow’s meet at Ray-Pec.
Don’t forget it’s our Pizza Shoppe Fundraiser tonight.
Starting at 5:00pm, the OEXC runners will be serving YOU dinner at Pizza Shoppe on 127th & Pflumm. A portion of the proceeds and 100% of the tips go directly back to the team. (So…be sure to tip your server!)
This is a very important event for our team – please come out and support OEXC and your runner. Spread the word to neighbors and friends – it will be a fun night and you don’t have to cook!
Here is the REVISED meet schedule for the OEXC Class Classic and a map of the course.

What a fun Donut Run! The traveling trophy has a new home…congratulations to Connor Young for a great finish.
