Raiders - Slip, Sliding, Away!Tuesday, September 4 2018 - Harvest Christian Fall Classic
Harvest Fall Classic Invitational. September 1st, 2018
What can I say but wow?! Even though the Varsity Team score wasn't what we wanted, it's hard to argue when we were JV Team Champs, placing 6 in the Top 14, and, as a team, we had 14 PR's, with many of those being career PR's.
Oops! That was how last years newsletter started. Unfortunately, this years newsletter would only show 2 athletes on their way to a PR - Abby Knight, and Erin Sowl. I'm not sure what happened but I can tell you what I think. As a team and as individuals you used some poor weather as an excuse to run poorly. That's just a lack of mental toughness and something we obviously need to work on. The one thing you can bank on with CC is it's rarely perfect conditions. Don't use that as an excuse for lack of effort! Team scores don't bother me if the effort is there. The good news is you can change the narrative going forwards. To put things in perspective, a teammate of yours is really facing tough conditions while fighting a battle for her life. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
