This past Saturday, the boys cross country team participated in the Saturday NIght Lights/Centerville Stampede. Ninety two high school and middle school teams participated at this invitational. There are thirteen different races at this event.
The Boys Cross Country team raced in two events on Saturday. The Varsity traveled to Louisville KY to participate in the Trinity/Valkyrie Invitational. The JV team ran in the Milford Invite at Valley View Nature Preserve. All runners continue to work toward improving their times each week in an effort to be at peak performance for the ECC Championship, Districts, Regionals and finally on to State. While many were not satisfied with their respective times in the races this week, they continue to make progress toward the end of the season race goals.
The Spartan Ladies Cross Country team ran the Mason Invitational last Saturday. The race was split into three races. We began with 10 ladies competing in the Varsity race in a field of 15 teams. Sam Bush was the first Spartan to cross the line in a time of 18:34 which earned her 3rd place overall in a field of 132 runners.
Running through creeks, over hay bales, and up and down hills, the Boys team placed 6 out of 16 teams at the Mason Invitational on Saturday. This race is a spectator favorite due to the interesting obstacles on the course.
