Farewell, Goodbye And I Will See You At The Meets

James Mathews, MileSplit Mississippi Editor at the Crossplex


I may be retiring from MileSplit Mississippi as of today but I still will be a regular contributor in the form of pictures and even some articles. It has been a heck of a ride and I loved every minute of it.

Now look at the calendars from 2007 and compare them to our calendars from the last seasons. We have come a long way. MileSplit Mississippi is one of the highest percentages of meets with registration on the whole MileSplit network. We lead because of the coaches, parents, and timers here in Mississippi making sure that meet and results get posted. 

Thanks to all I have worked with here and I look forward to seeing you at the meets as a track and cross country junkie. Keep Mississippi number 1.
