COUGAR RUNNERS FINISH DISTRICT STRONG

by on Oct.31, 2010, under Cross Country

On to Regional meet for these Coogs

Early morning temps in the mid-40’s required the Cross Country team to bundle up as they headed to Hardin Athletic Complex for this year’s District meet on Saturday, Oct 30th.  It had moved into the 50’s when the Varsity Girls took off at 9am – perfect running weather for the first two of four Cougars that qualified for the Regional Meet, as the top 10 individuals and 3 teams move on.  Glynnis Meade finished 4th in 12:04.7 and Shantel Swift 7th in 12:27.3.  The Varsity Boys race was neck and neck most of the way between Austin Wells and a runner from O’Connor.  With just over 100m to go, they bumped slightly and Austin fell, but he popped back up to hold on to 2nd place in 15:43.3.  Ryan Pavlich placed 7th in 16:45 to round out our Regional qualifiers.  The Girls team finished 6th and the Boys were 5th overall.  Next week’s meet is at Brooks City Base, with the 5A Girls running at 11:40am and the Boys at Noon.  Come cheer our Cougars on!
