Cross Country Team News: November 2013

The 2013 Cross Country season has come to an end with Team: 3 as one to remember forever.

From breaking individual course records to sweeping 1st-8th places at a meet, Team: 3 is one for the record books! This year, the team embarked one of the deepest schedules competing in 10 meets, highlighted with participation in the Middle School Jamboree; a meet featuring 1300+ runners from all over the state of Michigan. While continuing to build a strong girls’ team, the boys’ also continued their win streak with another undefeated season as they capitalized on winning the 1st place team trophy from our own Phoenix Invitational. Our big home meet highlighted over 100 runners from Washtenaw and Livingston Counties.

Much gratitude to our 3-year 8th grade participants who plan to extend their running careers at their respective high schools next year: Sam Jyawook, Tom Oates, and Dylan Reynolds. Also, well wishes in her future sport endeavors to 2-year XC participant and double-sport student-athlete, Hope Brintnall. Finally, farewell thanks to our other 8th grade participants: Evan Fortson, Robby Borer, and Alix Krawcke.

At the All-Sports Banquet, the Scholar-Athlete Award was earned by 6th grader, Robbie Oates, based off his performance in the classroom and on the running trails.  8th grader, Dylan Reynolds, was awarded the Student-Athlete Leadership Award, given to the runner that has positively impacted the team as a role model, a resource, a motivator and an encourager.

I am honored and proud to have coached these awesome young men and women harriers this season and looking forward to the continued success they will bring to Honey Creek next fall!
