Middle School Cross Country · MS Cross Country Began Competitive Season Saturday At Fremont Hill and Bale Invitational

In our first meet of the season, the Eagles did an excellent job on a course that actually had bales of straw throughout that had to be jumped.  For those that don’t remember, the top 5 finishers in a cross country meet score, while runners six and seven are pushers, meaning they can push other teams’ scores back.  Lila Volkers (2nd) and Alisha Esquivel (7th) led the way as the both medaled.  Other girls competing for the Eagles were:  Layne Hoffman 19th, Maddyson Mitchell 24th, Lylah Larson 25th, Kyrah Chappell 28th and Alyssa Miller 32nd.  The boys’ team was led by Ian Schuiling 18th.  Other competitors for the boys’ team were:  Donovan Vogel, Isaiah Stuhan, Brandon McCullough, Gage Stray and William Dixon.  We race again this Tuesday at Kent City HS.  The boy’s race starts at 4:30 and the girls start at 5:00.  Also, we are still in need of a few boys to join the team.
