Season Recap: Varsity & Middle School Cross Country

With a small but mighty team, both the Varsity and Middle School Cross Country teams were able to find ways to improve, break records, and have a great time throughout the season. 

“Cross country was an amazing season,” Coach Jared Johnson said. “Ashwin came into the season new to the school and reached regionals, hitting multiple PRs during the season. Dennis came into his second season of cross country with me and ended the season in a cold, rainy sectional race where he also PR’d on the season.”

The Cross Country athletes spent their season pushing themselves to gain endurance and speed. Grade 10 runners Ashwin Long and Dennis Lemoine pushed themselves throughout the season, reached multiple PRs, and made it to regionals and sectionals, respectively.

“Surprisingly, the running part was not the hardest part of the season,” Long said. “I was my own greatest challenge. As the season’s tension built, so did my anxiety about times and placement. Moving forward, I want to improve my times but also come into my junior year with more confidence.” 

The Varsity team is excited for the future growth of the team as well, with many talented Middle School players working hard to improve their times before they reach High School. 

“My biggest goal coming into the season was to have fun and compete hard,” Grade 7 runner Mateo Anderson said. “My biggest accomplishment was getting a PR and finishing as the fourth-best 7th grader in the state. I look forward to competing hard with my team next year.”
