“Santa” Delivers in Metamora   Gene Jones Runnin’ Red Invite    October 8, 2022

On a beautiful fall morning in Metamora, Santa rode her sleigh into Metamora to spark some holiday spirit into the Raiders!  There were gifts galore as the Raiders opened 24 PR’s!  The Raiders tallied 9 season’s bests, 9 Meet bests, and 6 career best moments!  On top of the pr’s, Metamora saw the season debut of Makenna Miller who ran a meet pr of 28:35.7!  Welcome back Makenna!  Lauren Price, Taylor Koenig, Simone Witort, Madelyn Weber, Ava Benes, Olivia Weber, Mariela Flores, Maria Aldama, along with Makenna turned in Meet PR’s!  Lauren, Taylor, Simone, Madelyn, Ava, Mariela, Maria, and Makenna, all had seasons bests, with Taylor, Simone, Madelyn, Ava, Mariela, and Maria all running a career best time!  Mary Kate Pinkelman, who was a little under the weather, managed to deliver inspiration and good cheer to her teammates, dressed as our resident, good elf, Santa!  The Raider girls are still looking for the first time the entire Team will run together.  Next week, at Elgin High School at the Conference Meet will mark the last opportunity to do so!  If you’ve watched closely, the girls have shown steady improvement all season!  Let’s Go Raiders!
