Raider's Rebound!Monday, September 27 2021 - Tolefree/Farley Invitational 2021
Tolefree Farley Invitational 09/25/2021
After sweating in 90 degree heat last week, we were able to enjoy what I call perfect cross country weather. Sunshine, cool temperatures, and no wind! Add that to the fact that this was a great Cross Country Course and it made for a fantastic morning for our girls! As a Team, the JV finished 4th and the Varsity 3rd! Not bad for our first time running at this invite! The JV started us off with a clean sweep of Season PR's! Sarah Ledford (-26), Olivia Weber (-48), Taylor Koenig (-5:25), Ava Benes (- 2:39), all had huge PR's. Equally impressive, Makenna Miller completed her first ever Cross Country Race. Makenna has run some partial races before but this was her first time at 3 miles! Congrats girls! The Varsity was next up and we only had 6 girls competing. Leading the charge with Season PR's were Kylie DeNardo (-10), Naomi Friedman (-16), Alyssa Kain (-1:18), and Emily Frieling (-3). Running again for the first time since injury, Madelyn Weber and Lauren Price also had strong runs for the Raiders. Overall, a great performance by the Raiders at the Tolefree/Farley Invitational. Congratulations Girls! This weeks Raiders of the Meet include - Kylie DeNardo and Olivia Weber!
It's hard to believe the regular season is almost over. For the first time this season, we will run our Top 7 at Lisle, followed by Metamora, and the Conference Meet at Bartlet High School. Anyone wanting to make the Conference/Regional/Sectional Varsity Top 7 has 3 more meets to establish themselves! All races count, all times count!
