Ask Keith

I wanted to officially let everyone know about a resource we have. Keith Flint (father of Hayes alum runner Zach Flint) has degrees in exercise physiology. He is also a very experienced runner. If you have any questions about anything running related he is a great resource to contact. His email address is

From 30:50 to 17:41

Read how Kayla Scott of Canal Winchester went from being the slowest runner on the team as a freshman to one of the favorites at the state meet.
Perseverance pays off for Kayla Scott

Weather and Practice

Generally I never cancel practice because of weather issues. We will never run outside in thunderstorms with lightning, but we will meet for our core workout and stretching and have a team meeting. Our meets could be in heat, rain, mud, wind, snow, sleet, etc, so there is some benefit to practicing in these different weather conditions as long as it is safe. If the conditions are unsafe for running outside or if it is raining at the beginning of practice, we will meet in the old gym for the start of practice. Practice might be a bit shorter if conditions are severe outside. Always check here just in case for the status of practice.
