The girls dominated the Class B division at Gilbert scoring 45 points (a new school record for the meet beating last year’s mark of 46 points) placing 4 runners in the top 10 in a very competitive field to outdistance second place Earlham with 83 points. Ella Waddle just missed the individual championship finishing 5 seconds behind ACGC’s Kate Crawford. Ella ran 20:34 breaking her own school record for the course (she ran 21:02 last year on the same course).
The boys placed 11th as a team, but show a great deal of potential if they commit to the work it takes to reach their potential. Only four of the 9 boys that ran had competed on the course before. Paul Hansen had a great race improving his time from last year at this meet by over 3 minutes.
New best times for the course were set by Payton Beckman, Abby Cobb, Olivia Steffen, Ella Waddle and Paul Hansen.
