Raiders Run Strong!

Sunday, October 14 2018 - Upstate Eight Conference Cross Country


Upstate 8 Conference Championships 10/13/2018

I know it sounds cliche, but just where has the season gone? Many of you started last June and here it is, the Conference Meet. Prior to our run on Saturday, we have a great time at the Pre-Conference Meal. We shared some great food and had some laughs at the White Elephant Gift exchange. Thanks to all the parents who supplied us with your hospitality and the great dinners. We couldn't do it without you!

This year we have had our share of illness and injury. We've been frustrated and excited. If Saturday's meet was any indication, there's light at the end of the tunnel. In my humble opinion, I think we ran well! Am I satisfied? Let's just say that I saw your spirit return and that's enough for me! On a soggy course on a cold and foggy morning, the gun went off at 9:00 sharp for the girls Varsity race. While our score might not indicate it, our times reflected improvement. Hopefully this will provide us with a little momentum going into Regionals on Saturday. Congratulations to Kylie DeNardo for earning All-Conference honors with her 7th place finish! On The Frosh/Soph and Open levels, we saw the return of Elizabeth Cizek, who finally was able to run her first, and last race of her senior season. Welcome back Elizabeth! Also back from illness and injury was Naomi Friedman. Naomi provided us with our lone PR of the day! Thanks to all the girls for a great and fun season. It's appreciated. I also want to give a shout out to our Seniors, Gabby Reese, Angel Avila, Erin Matos,Ania Gniatczyk, and our 4 year Raiders Elizabeth Cizek, Gisela Hagedorn, Mikayla Jacoby, and Julia Clingen. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You will be missed!!!
