Cross Country Season is Back!

The season began with time trials on 8/27.  Much of last year's team consisted of seniors and a good portion of the underclassmen did not return, so it's a brand new team this year.  I think there are only 3 returning team members.

Anyway, Rose Bud ran 2nd among the girls in the time trials, earning her spot on the varsity team.  Her time was 14:01, an improvement of a minute and a half over last year.

The first meet was a 3200K or 2 mile race.  She again ran 14:00, again an improvement of 1:30 over last year at this race.  She placed 22nd overall.

The second meet was a standard 4K and they ran in a thunderstorm.  Rose Bud was thrilled to find that she cracked the top 20 for the first time, earning a medal!  Her time was 17:31 (last year, 18:31) and she finished 19th!

Way to go, Rose Bud!
