Wonderful coaches

Coaches Sara Freitas and Gene Gilligan, the nicest people you would ever hope to know, are the heart and sole of the Nevada Union cross country team. The term team is somewhat of a misnomer since Sara and Gene create more of an extended family rather than just a team. Not only are Sara and Gene talented runners in their own right, but they have a great understanding of running and runners and are willing to share their experience, their time and their care for each and every individual.

Thank you. We already look forward to next season.

Film festival a blast

Thanks to SYRCL for treating us this past weekend to what is becoming an annual event: its Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival. We were inspired, informed, entertained and challenged by presenters and films that brought us to distant places, reminded us of the beauty and fragility of our planet and let us share adventures with individuals of incredible courage and stamina. Janet Cohen, Kathy Dotson and the SYRCL crew and countless volunteers did an extraordinary job of organizing and presenting the Festival. We look forward to next year’s films. What a great way to spend a rainy weekend.
