It was a hot and humid day at the TAPPS State Cross Country meet on Monday, October 31. The course was extremely challenging and the hot and humid weather was tough to race in!
The girls raced extremely well! Avery Owen tracked down a runner at the finish to place 11th and Taylor Allen was right behind to finish 14th. Both girls achieved Academic All-State for finishing in the top 15 and having a certain GPA.
The temperature and humidity continued to increase throughout the day, making the boys' race even more difficult. Congratulations to Ellis Meyer who finished first on the team! Ethan Westerberg won the first 50 meters and placed 2nd on our team. "The most exciting thing for our team is how our 2 new freshman athletes competed," said Head Coach Karen Owen. Kalyan Reddy was 3rd to finish on the team and very close to his personal record(PR). Jason Dickerson also had a great race and was just slightly off his PR.
Congratulations to the Cross Country team on a fantastic 2022 season!
