Mentor Cardinal Classic

Good morning Harrier fans! The Cross team did an outstanding job this past weekend. The Ladies teams took 2nd, 3rd, and 3rd in the Varsity, JV and Open classes respectively. The guys took 6th, 5th and 8th.

Ally had a great race and shaved 22.58 seconds off of the Berkshire race for a race time of 24:12.47. She was 26th overall and got a ribbon accordingly.

Nick and BJ did good too. Nick drafted off of BJ for almost the entire race, and then the two of them decided to have a sprint for it at the very end. I think because BJ was leading the entire race, Nick had saved up some energy at the end and was able to overtake him. Nick's time was 20:39.04 and BJ's was 20:41.31. The irony of the whole this is last year, BJ and Nick also finished just as close, but BJ came in before Nick. Regardless, they both improved their times considerably this year over last, by reducing their time by 2 1/2 minutes each!! This just goes to show the determination that all these kids have!

At the next meet I think BJ is going to hit his goal of sub 20 minutes!! Let's see you do it BJ... we know you have it in you. Just remember, that which doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Keep those nice smooth long strides and work your ladder and you will do it.

Way to go Perry!! Next stop, Walsh Jesuit which is down near Stow Ohio. I hope to see you there!
