Dunwoody Cross Country Varsity Letter Requirements – 2012
An athlete can earn a Varsity Letter in one of two ways:
1. Be named to the Region Championship team toward the end of the season.
This is typically the top 12 boys and girls on the team.
2. Have no more than 3 unexcused absences and run in every meet throughout
the season that the athlete is eligible to participate in.
ALL runners must maintain passing grades in order to be eligible for a Varsity Letter.
NOTE: The coaches have the right to award Varsity Letters in extraordinary cases or to reward especially strong
efforts. Final decisions are at the discretion of the coaching staff.
Some (but not all) examples of unexcused absences include: skipping practice, not attending practice when in
school for the whole day, having an invalid physical, attending an alternative sport/extracurricular activity without prior
Any excused absences must be submitted within 48 hours of the absence via email to Coach Boucher.
At the end of the season, the Varsity Letter list will be posted outside the coaches’ rooms prior to the
banquet. Any concerns should be addressed with the coaches prior to the banquet and will not be addressed after the banquet.
It is the athlete’s responsibility to schedule a meeting with the coaches prior to the banquet.
