Varsity Boys
10th of 39 full teams.
Team placing was 31-62-78-83-108(120)(175) with a team average of 18:54 with a #1-5 spread of 2:09.
(LAST RACE TEAM AVERAGE WAS 19:20.)
 
The winning time today was a blistering 15:48, which is a 5:04 mile average. Yep, that’s fast this early in the season. We were once again led by junior captain Jack Krantz. Recovering from a trip and fall near the beginning of the race was sophomore Brayan Correa whose PR is 18:22 from last year so good job maintaining composure. Senior Jayson Jensen ran #3 for us followed closely by sophomore Bobby Schneeberger. They ran together and worked together the first two miles and moved together to pass people the last mile. Junior captain Mason Pullum ran a PR today of 19:47. He finished last season at a 20:12. So big things coming from him as he will continue to drop time. Freshman Gian Thundiyil running in his first varsity race improved 37 seconds over his Trinity Meet time. Cody Cunningham got bumped to varsity today after Cody Spence stepped in a hole prior to the race and battled to a 21:52 time for us.

JV Boys
6th of 20 full teams.
Team placing was 32-34-37-43-57(64)(65) with a team average of 21:44 with a #1-5 spread of 1:57.
(LAST RACE TEAM AVERAGE WAS 22:14.)

We were tied with Wiregrass Ranch and their 6th runner beat our 6th runner for the tie breaker and they put their 7th runner in before our 6th to push us back. Remember we always say every point counts and it’s not just our front runners who are important. All of you are! We’ll continue challenging ourselves and putting ourselves in position to chase people down and keep closing the gaps on our #5 runner as well as continuing to challenge for varsity spots by our front runners.
