BCHS Cross Country & Track and Field

Update: Personal Best Running Camp

We delayed making a final decision on holding the camp until Governor Cuomo made the call on reopening schools. We hoped his announcement on Friday would have included a statement on school sports, however, he has yet to give final approval for school-related activities to resume. Therefore, we have no choice but to cancel this year's camp.

While youth sports are permitted under his current plan, our camp falls under the guidance of our Bethlehem Runs Booster Club which helps support the modified and high school teams. We felt it would have been imprudent to proceed with the camp given the direction the Governor has given regarding school sports.

The good news is that USATF clubs such as our feeder program, Delmar Track & Field, operate independently of the school district. As such, Delmar Track & Field is in the process of opening their membership up for a fall season beginning August 30th. Registration for their fall season will open up this Friday, 8/14. Visit their website for more information: http://delmartrackandfield.com/membership/

Thank you for your support and understanding! We look forward to hosting the camp again in 2021.

Summer 2020 BCHS XC Weekly Activity

Yearbook 2021 Wants your pictures

Spring 2020 was a strange one, but even though we weren't able to have a regular season, the staff of the Oriole wants your Spring 2020 photos to include in their 2021 yearbook.

The Goal: To make a collage of all BCHS T&F Spring 2020 team members.

What do we need from you?: A picture of yourself! It can be of you alone or with teammates (from the pre-COVID days)

When do we need it? By FALL 2020 (but Seniors please before you leave for school)

How do we want it? Put your photo(s) (they must be jpeg) in a Google folder and share it with the yearbook account at bchsoriole@bethlehemschools.org

Questions? Contact the Oriole at bchsoriole@bethlehemschools.org
