With two meets completed, we wanted to share a mid-season update with you all!
FIRST RACE AT INCLINE MIDDLE SCHOOL
Our first meet is under our belts! Though we had a small team on Friday, the runners delivered strong performances across the board, not only in their races, but while cheering on all of the other teams throughout the day. Nicely done!
We had 3 students run their very first cross country race at this meet. It was a great opportunity for everyone to get to know the ins and outs of competitive running, get comfortable with pacing and pushing themselves as runners. One of our returning runners from last year, also ran a strong race and ended up finishing 9th for 8th grade girls. Great work from each and every one of them!
SECOND RACE AT ASH CANYON
We represented TEA at full strength on Friday in what ended up being an extremely challenging race in quite an austere environment. Who doesn’t love running uphill in sand and into the sun? The race was definitely not for the faint of heart, but everyone did great and can be proud of their results! The finishes were absolute nail-biters and the heart displayed by all of our runners in the last quarter mile was how legends are created. Well done TEAm!
