Boys Middle School Cross Country · Boys Middle School Cross Country finishes 2nd place at MAC League Invitational

  Place Points
Coldwater High School 2nd 55

The junior high boys ran in Coldwater this morning at the MAC Championships. With the temperature drastically breaking on this very cold October morning, conditions were set up for success to be had at the meet. The junior high boys did not disappoint. The goal from the beginning of the year has been to win this meet. While the boys finished 2nd to a very good Minster team, the effort from the boys made this coach a very proud coach.

What a great end to the season. The heart, effort, determination, and focus you brought to each and every race allowed you to achieve great things this season.

To the 8th graders – I want to thank you for a great year. I can not put into words the how much I appreciated the leadership you brought to this team. The success of this team was a result of what you did and how you did it each day. I can not wait and hope that you bring this leadership and effort with you next year while in high school. Great things will happen if you do!

To the 7th graders – I want to thank you for a great year. To think back to where you all started and the growth you made this season, it brings excitement into next year. Remember what your 8th graders did and how they acted. Bring that into next season as you lead the junior high team.

Again, what a great year. Thank you for the work and memories made this year.
