Crossville/Milton Wrap-Up - MORE PR's!

These athletes keep posting new personal records each week.  The general consensus was that both courses for the middle and high school squads were tougher than many of our normal courses. Crossville had more asphalt and mud puddles while the Milton course had more hills, rocks, and roots. 

Adults can run 2 miles too!

In spite of the challenges, our White County Cross Country athletes still posted 10 new personal records PR's this past weekend. 

Here are some of the highlights: 

The middle school girls team beat Rockvale Middle School in points!  We were just edged out of another place by South Middle School. We're improving!

  • Gabriel Wiles had his 3rd top 10 finish at 6th place.
  • Emma Nash continues to be the lead runner for Middle School, a tough feat for a female in this sport.
  • Jackson Burch made a huge leap in PR by 1:39, which is a big change for a higher pace runner.
  • Other PR's include: Kayden Kimmons, Emma Nash, Colton Courtney, Tyler Hernandez, Blake Cravens, Addison Hodges, Owen Ferris, Alexis Freeman, and Aaliyah Hawkins.
  • Our MS & HS Average Mile Pace dropped from 10:50 to 10:32.  That's an 18 second improvement across our teams!

Our next meet will be this weekend (9/24) at Cookeville High School, starting at 10am.

Here's a look at the full stats:

Burnett Invitational Wrap-Up

Wow, words don't express how proud coaches are of runners today!  Out of 23 White County Runners, 15 posted a new personal record (PR)!  Official Times posted at Photos: Special thanks to John Gottlied, Catherine Gottlied, and Jacque Powell for taking photos for our teams. I'll download and curate photos later for highlights. Catch lots of great photos on these Facebook accounts: Here are some of the highlights from today's meet.  High School Boys:   Gabriel Wiles earned his first sub-19min race at 18:57, which definitely solidifies him as an individual state contender. He also won a medal for finishing in the top 20 (at 19th place), his 3rd medal of the season. He has one more month to improve toward the state qualifier on Oct 26th.  John Durfee had the biggest PR of the day by 3:06 earning huge gains in poin

Macon County Wrap-Up - New Girl's Leader

  The boys team joins Harley in prayer before her race.  As we prepare for the state qualifier on 10/25, we stopped in at Macon County for a practice run through.  Today's meet is the same location as the qualifier that will be in 19 days. We were pleasantly surprised with a couple breakthroughs and some more personal records. The photo doesn't do this finish line hill justice. That finish line was a beast!   In the coaches rumor mill around the water cooler, the commonly shared opinion is that Macon County is a +0:35 course, meaning that overall times are generally 35 seconds slower here than on normal courses. There are multiple factors contributing to slower times, such as the amount of hills, a slightly longer distance measured at 3.13 miles on GPS, and higher thicker grass increasing friction with each of the runner's 3000ish steps.  BIG STORY - In spite of the challenges, the weather was perfect for our biggest story of the meet.  Freshman Harley Johnston, who alone
