Dateline August 23, 2014 @ Marauder Stadium, Flower Mound, TX: To kick-start the 2014 cross country season, the Marcus XC teams arranged a late Saturday night serenade from the Marcus Band at Marauder Stadium, and then proceeded to launch into their annual SOS festivities.
Rather it’s the official Marcus Cross Country “Start of Season” and a true celebration of the promise of a new year after a long, hot, grueling summer putting in the necessary road work and grinding out the required mileage to build a base for the challenges of this fall’s upcoming cross country season.
With a mile time trail, both the boys’ and girls’ teams officially started their seasons. And with favorable portent, Maddy Reed crushed the existing Marcus Girls SOS time trial record by nine seconds.
With that welcoming sign of a great start, Marauders fans can’t wait to welcome next week’s first meet, the Marcus Booster Club hosted Marcus I Invitational. For details, please follow this link: Marcus I Invitational.

Next Event: MXC Booster Club Meeting, 7 PM Marcus HS Library, Tuesday Night, August 26th, where we will review the season and provide info on Marcus I – North Texas’ biggest cross event, one that attracts teams from all over TX and beyond.
