2008 Berkshire Early Bird

Are these kids incredible or what!!?? Wow, our beloved Pirates outdid themselves again.

The Berkshire run is an interesting run because we only have our JV teams there and not the varsity team, BUT the other schools have their varsity teams present, so it really puts the JV teams to the test.

This course was tough this year because of all the dips and holes in the course. BJ was hit hard by this in the very beginning where he actually fell because of an unseen hole. He never really was able to recover from this and didn't do as well as he would have liked to. He didn't give up though and toughed it out.

On the right of the screen you will see a list of the 2008 Perry CC Meet Schedule & Results. Follow this and you can see all the kids results. For our kids, Ally finished in 24.25.05 and in 4th place for Perry and 87th overall (out of 215 ladies).

Nick finished in 20:59.32 and in 5th place for Perry and 107 overall (out of 269 guys). And BJ finished with 21:29.82 and 8th for Perry and 137th overall.

For those of you who have never been to one of these races, take a look at the kids faces to see the story that it tells. Imagine running 5k as hard as you can! That's a long way, and the story their faces tell is amazing. These kids all have guts, determination, and the I WILL NOT QUIT attitude that we all should be proud of!

Next up, the Mentor Cardinal Classic at Garfield Park in Mentor. I hope to see you there! Just remember, Cross Country is the only real fall sport!
