On Friday, November 1, our XC team participated in the ICXC Independent State Championship Meet in Boiling Springs, South Carolina. The guys’ team placed second with runners finishing in the 4th, 5th and 9th positions! The girls’ team also placed second with runners finishing in the 7th, 10th, and 11th positions! I would like to congratulate our athletes on a hard run season, unwavering effort and exemplary character!
On another note, PAC had 9 runners participate in events at the LMC Governor’s Cup Road Race this past Saturday. We had 3 run the 8k race, in which Alec Elmore won first place in his age group with a time of 37:00. There were 6 to participate in the half marathon. We had three athletes finish first in their age groups: Olivia Grace Starnes (1:54:51), John Drummond (1:23:15), and Jennifer Aurednik (1:54:39). Congratulations!
I want to encourage everyone to continue to run through the winter. A great place to start would be to join us this Saturday at Sesqui Centennial State Park for the Stay the Course Race. Please see the web page for more details!
