2008 Time Trials

Wow!! Where are we runnin'? I'll tell you where. To the state finals!

On August 16th, BJ, Nick, Ally and the rest of the Perry Cross team had their time trials. This was the first time the team actually ran in race conditions on a measured 5km (3.1 miles) course. All the kids did fantastic!

Ally had an all time great with a time of 24 minutes 12 seconds and landed herself the 5th position (out of seven) on the girls JV team. Nick came in with a time of 20 minutes and 35 seconds , which is a new PR (personal record) for him, and the 6th position on the boys JV team. BJ topped them all with a time of 20 minutes and 30 seconds and either the 4th or 5th position on the boys JV team. I'm not sure which position BJ received because he tied with another boy.

Just so you all understand, the teams are designed as follows. There is a varsity team of the 7 fastest runners. Then there is a JV team, with the next 7 fastest. Lastly, there is the open class where all the others run.

As you can tell, Raquel and I are very proud of our three Pirates, and the entire team as well. These kids are all AWESOME and we wish them all the best of luck this season!!

This coming Saturday the varsity teams will be running in Salem, and the JV and Open class will be running at Berkshire. Why not come out and cheer these kids on their way! C'mon.. what are you waiting for? This isn't like anything you have seen before. What these kids do is punishment for the football players.
