"Full sends only" started out as a funny motto at camp, but has really caught on to be one of our true team mottos for this season! It represents going all in on our efforts and pushing past our perceived limits. We have a great young team and together are motivating each other to perform at a high level. Hale is once again a force, and we will keep focusing on our values and consistent efforts to propel us to a great season.
The team competed very well to start the season! Because of different courses and conditions, times are of less importance in cross country, rather it's how you compete. With that being said, we still had some killer times as well! The reward is in the journey, and it was great to see us get off to a solid start for what is proving to be an exciting year for Hale Cross.
The standout performance came from Josh Truchon, who has put in consistent and positive work over the past year. We will see him up front a lot this year, and winning by 80 seconds to start the season is no easy feat. He looks to carry that momentum into a very memorable sophomore campaign for himself and the team. His peformance moved him to 7th all time on our sophomore list and we will watch him keep climbing that list. Liam Kelley had a close to 50 second pr to start the season and we expect some big breakthroughs in the coming weeks. Cole Konczal and Richard Eastham made some noise on the freshman side of things by getting top 10 finishes among all freshman to start off their careers! After this valuable first racing experience, the coaches believe these two, along with our other new runners, can really step up and even contribute to varsity roles as the season goes on. Senior Brad Glisczinski and Sophomore Matthew Kees also got medals for their performances. Both will be absolute beasts this year and are doing amazing work, watch out for these two! Congratulations to the 6 guys who received medals in the first meet, let's keep the train rolling. There is no limit for any kid on our team.
Thanks to all the parents and athletes that helped at concessions! Thanks to the parents that are helping at our home meet this Friday as well!
