Training for cross country started right after school let out, and throughout the summer the girls grew stronger and closer as a team.
Sophomore Anita Pan said, “I expect this season to be better than last year because the girls have gotten so much closer through the camp out, bus rides and long runs, and we know what to expect from the races.”
The girls cross country team started their competitive season with a home race at the high school on Aug. 29. They had their second race on Sept. 5 at Lebanon with the girls’ varsity placing third overall.
Pan said, “The Lebanon meet was awesome!! Although it was extremely hot, with temperatures around 86 degrees at nine in the morning.”
Finally, after five weeks of training the girls will face Mason at the Mason home meet on Sept. 12. The course for the Mason meet will consist of jumping over hay bales and running through creeks.
Pan said, “I think the girls team will do really well. We are improving at each meet since our training has picked up and I know that whatever the coaches have planned for us is for the best.”
