Congrats to Cole Raymond on punching his ticket to STATE with an awesome 8th place finish in a time or 16:19!!!! He will be racing at Terre Haute next weekend!

Ella Bensz finished her year off with a solid 55th place finish in her 1st Cross Country Season! Very proud!

The boys team finished in 10th today, only 26 points behind 6th place. After a rough last few weeks of racing our boys brought everything they had today, but just fell short. So proud of them for not giving up or giving in when things got tough. They showed amazing character and I am so proud of them for it.

We walked away today “sad” and “disappointed” by the end result but not defeated.

One of my favorite quotes by my favorite coach of all time sums up this team well.

“Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.” -John Wooden

I walked away with a lot of peace of mind today because I know these athletes have done their best to become the best of which they are capable.

Congrats again to Cole Raymond! Looking forward to great things next week!
