The temperature drops. The ground firms up, except when the sky drops 3 inches of rain in 7 or 8 days. The runner’s focus becomes sharpened like a pencil ready to take the ACT. If you have been around this sport long enough, you can smell it the air. Its MAC TIME!!! A time where runners representing Rangers, Tigers, and Cavs…oh my, descend on Coldwater Community Park to see who can run the fastest? Who can last the longest? What team can come together the best to win a trophy with a golden like figure with perfect running form adorning the top? All these questions find answers at the MAC MEET!
How did our Lady Cavs fare at the MAC MEET? It all can be summed up in one word: CAVTASTIC!!! The Cavalierettes ran season bests across the board to bring home a fifth place finish. When asked about the results, Allison Hamberg started a dance off with the New Bremen entire Cross Country team. It was a site to behold, but Allison would prevail as the 2018 MAC Dancing Queen. Way to bring home the title Allison.
The Lady Cavs were led by Brianna Keller who finished 14th overall. She was followed by our Dancing Queen at 21st, and fellow 8th grader Shelby Homan at 25th. Rounding out our top 7 were Elise Schwieterman (37th), Audrey Lefeld (43rd), Olivia Tobe (51st), Becca Wenning. Other finishers for the Cavaliers were (58th), Brooke Stammen, Julia Siefring (68th), and Lydia Borger (71st).
This is also the day we say goodbye to our JH runners as their season comes to a close. We hope to see everyone back out for the team next year, but before you go we want to give a few things to think about:
1. Thank you for your hard work and great effort.
2. Thank you for learning a whole new sport that I hope you will love as much as I do
3. Thank you for being kids who enjoy a good time of goofing off….some more than others
4. Don’t forget to brush your teeth in the morning….you know who I am talking about.
5. Challenge yourself everyday even if it is a small challenge.
Thank you for being apart of this team and I can’t wait to see you in track. Go Cavs!!!
