Cross Country

  • The cross country team traveled to Warrensburg on Saturday for the district meet. We had multiple runners have a great race, but unfortunately no one was able to advance on to the state meet. It was a great season and looking to next year already! Thank you so much to everyone who helped us out this year. To our parents who hosted dinners and provided race snacks. To all of our volunteers who help at both meets we hosted. To Sonic for donating plenty of water for our meets. To the managers who helped me keep times and my sanity at most meets. To all of the picture takers who provided some great shots at meets (see attached picture). To the maintenance crew for keeping the course mowed throughout the season to help us keep our great new course in shape and able to train on. Sometimes it's the small things behind the scenes that no one sees, but helps out the team tremendously throughout the season. Thanks to all of you! We wrapped up our season with the banquet on Tuesday. Below are the awards and results from districts.

  • On Saturday, September 14, cross country traveled to Holden for our second meet of the year where it was 59 degrees at start time, which is perfect! We had some good performances and Korry Davis and Brielle Campbell both earned their first career medals in a varsity race!

     On Wednesday, September 18 we traveled to Drexel. Conditions were vastly different. So much so that the heat forced the race to be reduced to a 2 mile race (normally it's 3.1 miles). Times were a little slow for all runners, BUT we brought home 5 medals. Patrick Bell and Korry Davis were medalists, and we had 3 first time medalists - John Buford, Zeke Martin, and Hunter Stevenson.

     We travel to Clinton this Saturday, hoping to avoid the incoming storms! ALL of our runners will be running at 8:30 am.

    The cross country team competed at the SWCCCA Invitational in Bolivar on Saturday. Every single runner that had run the course before earned a course PR and some by a large amount!
