“For our returning runners these times are, in almost all cases, minutes faster than last year at this same meet. Last year Cain Evans was our only boy medalist and he ran a high 19! I’m just so proud of their hard work and progress. The season is off to a great start and I am excited to see us continue to improve and progress!”
For the middle school team, Lake Englert took the lead from the start line and held on, finishing by almost a minute ahead of 2nd place! He ran the 2 mile, hilly race in 11:29 (out of 150 runners)!
