Boys Cross Country
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.
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.
The boys cross country team raced to a 2nd place finish at the Queen City Invitational in West Chester on Saturday. The team took advantage of ideal running conditions to post season best times up and down the lineup with at least two PRs. The Spartans were edged out by Anderson. They look forward to racing against them again this season to even the score in the friendly rivalry.
