Harvest Fall Classic Invitational.  September 4th, 2021

Suddenly!  This Happened!
It was exciting to get back to running invitationals after a year of running just Dual Meets.  After a decent start at Morris in high heat and humidity, the Raider Girls were excited about returning to the Harvest Fall Classic and much cooler weather!  Suddenly, this happened!  The Raider Varsity Girls were a bit spread out at the start, as Lauren Price (4th) and Kylie DeNardo (6th) settled into the front of the pack. Slowly, but in a steady fashion, Naomi Friedman, Maggie Riley, Alyssa Kain, Madelyn Weber, and Emily Frieling began picking off the competition.  Without this effort, the Raiders would not have won the Championship at the Harvest Fall Classic Invitational. Elk Grove packed their top 5 into the Top 22 finishers to finish 6 points behind our Raiders, but it wasn't enough to overcome the Total Team effort of these girls!  Congratulations Raiders!  The JV Girls had some stellar performances, led by Simone Witort (6th), and Olivia Weber (11th).  Ava Benes had a bouce back meet by running a season PR and Sarah Ledford had a great first meet of her season!  Makenna Miller, running for the first time ever, put in a 2 mile effort to complete the afternoon for the Raider Girls.  Welcome back Taylor Koenig who provided support in addition to excellent camera work!  We're glad you're back Taylor!  The Raiders run next week in Peoria!  Hope to see you there!
