KRHS XC D2 RecapBack
Congratulations to the girls who closed our their season yesterday. They came in 12th (12 points away from 10th) of 19 schools. See full results here. This was the highest finish for the girls since 2006 when we placed 8th. Congrats on a good season ladies! Let's shoot for a top ten finish next year! I am sure we can do it... especially if we do that summer running!
And congratulations to the boys who finished 4th place! See full results here. The boys finished 11th last year and 5th in 2015. Before that the last time the whole team made it to MOCs (Meet of Champions) was in 2007, 2006, and 2005.
For both teams, we are happy to see all that hard word pay off!
For the boys, Beast of the Meet was Jim Huckman, who ran exceptionally well! He PRed by 27 seconds!?!? Honorable mention to our freshman #5 Oleg who also PRed (by 4 seconds).
And for the girls, Beast of the Meet was Carolyn Day, who was our other freshman #5. She ran her second fastest time this year and ran a minute faster than her time at Manchester earlier in the year.
Next Saturday's meet is at Nashua South High School. The bus leaves at 11:30. Please be there at 11:15. The boys race at 3:20, but we are getting there early so we can see the course since many have not run it! The girls race at 2:30, so we need to be off the course by then. It is a super flat, fast course and we look forward to seeing how the boys run there! The top 6 teams and top 25 individuals will run at New Englands.
On that note, check out the boys Divisional Merges from Saturday (and see more information here). It looks like we could have a few runners racing at the New Engands. New Englands are in Belfast, Maine this year.Click here for more information about that.
The boys will be practicing all week this week. If any girls want to run, I will be there (running far behind the boys), so feel free to join us.
Details for the end of the year get together will be coming soon. We would like to invite parents to join us for this, so we will be having it at the high school to accommodate everyone. We will do it potluck style and will probably have it the week of 6th or the 13th.
Thanks to all the parents, siblings and friends that came to support the team. We appreciate your enthusiasm!
