Photo Finish at JV District Race

For the cross country seniors, Thursday’s JV District race was not just one last chance to race for Turpin, but also one last chance to race together.  

 

They approached this race a little differently than every other race up to this point in their careers.  They decided to take off together at the start of the race to see how long they could hold the lead.  For a few fleeting meters, it was the Turpin seniors in the lead.  Then, for the middle miles, they slipped back into their usual race pace, allowing them to get back to their pace so they could still try to meet their race goal. Most of them ran that pace until the finish line came into view.

That is when they decided to lock arms to finish together.  It was display of all that is right about high school sports.  It is about those friendships that happen during the 7:00 am runs all summer, the long miles of training and tough workouts throughout the fall, the pasta parties and the bonfires. It is about being a good teammate, pushing each other, and picking each other up.  It is about getting to represent Turpin High School.  It is about ending with a great finish.
