For the first time this season, we fielded a full Boys A team at the Palmer Lake meet and placed 5th of 7 teams while running one 6th grader and four 5th graders against the strongest 6th-8th graders from other teams. Elliott P. ran the course for the second time this year and improved his time by 16 seconds, coming in 18th place. Soren S., Fenn M., Levi G., and Ben G. ran in their first meet of the season and placed 23rd, 24th, 31st, and 32nd, respectively, all with times under 11:36! Naomi E. and Immy M. ran hard in the Girls’ A race. This was Immy’s first A-level race, and she hung in like a champion. Naomi improved her time on this course by several seconds compared with her time last year. In the Girls’ B race we ran three 5th graders in their first race of the season, Charlotte P. had an amazing race with a time of 13:41 and came home with a 7th place ribbon! Addison T. and Melinda H. both accomplished their personal goals and finished in the middle of the pack. Tristan K., our sole Boys’ B competitor, ran a solid race with a time of 15:01. Our Middle School runners look forward to the league championship meet this Friday.
