Thirteen out of fourteen runners set a new personal record on a 2 mile course tonight which is amazing and an achievement these kids should be proud of. Yet it was Emma Nash who was the standout star for White County Middle School tonight in the Voyles Classic course at the Hermitage!
Emma Nash (8th grade) was the top runner for both the boys and girls squads with a time of 16:28, beating her previous record by 1:27! That's a HUGE improvement in just 8 days from the previous meet!
Colton Courtney (8th grade) was the top male runner for White County at a time of 16:44, besting his previous record by 0:28. He just keeps getting better every race.
Our top 5 male runners improved the team average time to a respectable 17:38. Our top 5 female runners averaged an improved 18:19.
We're also excited to have had four new runners who completed their first race tonight: Alexis Freeman, Aaliyah Hawkins, Jackson Burch, and Michael Johnson.
In other related news, Jackson dropped a sock in the portapotty toilet. We'll let him tell you the rest of the story!
Here's the official stats. Look at all those new highlighted Personal Records! These athletes on the first ever middle school cross country team in White County should be proud!
As if you didn't have enough to make you smile already. Check out this quick photo we captured of the middle school boys praying on their own together before the start of the race!
The White County High School Cross Country Teams take the course tomorrow morning (9/10/22) at the Hermitage with the boys race at 8:00am, the girls race at 8:35am. Pray for fleet feet and peaceful paths for our athletes.
