The Licking Valley cross country teams now have a course of their own due to the efforts of several individuals, the Licking Valley Athletic Boosters, Quality Dozing, and the Licking Valley Local Schools. A ceremony was held on Monday August 14th as the official opening of the course. The ceremony was conducted by David and Karen Rice who were instrumental in getting this project started and completed. David and Karen worked closely with Jack Shinn and Chris Morgan of the Licking Valley maintenance department to map out the course and discuss excavation needs. Dave Thompson, owner of Quality Dozing, was more than generous with his time and equipment to make sure the course was properly excavated and drained. The Licking Valley Local Schools and the Licking Valley Athletic Boosters provided the financing necessary to ensure that the course would be done properly and would be of high quality for our cross country teams. Many parents donated their time and money as well.
Thank you all for supporting our cross country athletes and giving them a course to call home.
