“I run because it’s so symbolic of life. You have to drive yourself to overcome the obstacles. You might feel that you can’t. But then you find your inner strength and realize you’re capable of so much more than you thought.”   ~Arthur Blank

 

Great American Cross Country Festival:

Our runners overall had a great meet with several PR’s.  It was a gorgeous day with near perfect running conditions (finally!!).

Varsity Boys placed 9th out of 25 teams in their race.  Jack Rhodes finished 5th overall and Michael Parnes placed 30th overall.  Great job, boys!

Varsity Girls did great with Sarah Sandreuter finishing 6th overall and Abby Smith coming in 30th.  Awesome running, girls!

JV Boys ran hard coming in 9th out of 26 teams with Adam Clark finishing 33rd overall.

JV Girls pushed for a 7th place finish out of 19 teams.  Roxanne Colson kicked in a 37th finish with Leah Ehrhardt right behind at 38th.

Way to Go Hornets!!
