Lisle Mane Event 10/2/21
Raiders Provide Mixed Bag
The Mane Event has always been one of those meets where we have some fantastic performances, mixed in with a few, less than stellar.  There's really no good explanation for this other than "Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug!"  Running short handed, the Varsity featured 3 Freshman getting some of their first Varsity experience.
Taylor Koenig, Olivia Weber, and Simone Witort each earned the right to run with the Varsity following very good performances at the Tolefree/Farley Invitaional.  Keep in mind that the times are for a legit 5k.  The results also include a 3 mile equivalent which helps in making comparisons.  That's where the PR's come in.  Alyssa Kain, Maggie Riley, Simone Witort, and Ava Benes all ran PR's with their 3.0 equivalent.  Taylor Koenig, (-1:10), and Emily Frieling, (-:45), both had huge PR's and earned this weeks Raider(s) of The Meet/Most Improved.  Congratulations to all!  Next week we run at one of our favorite courses at The Runnin' Red in Metamora, followed by Conference at Bartlet HS.  This season has been a fast one!
