This weekend, we head back to Grant Park for the South Milwaukee Rocket Invitational. We haven't done this meet in a few years, and are excited to be back in it. The course is great and we will perform very well there. We look to keep building and have some big performances!
Betz Invitational Recap
We are always honored to host our home meet, and this year once again brought great competition and teams to Greenfield Park! This year proved a bit more challenging with course set up due to some restricted areas on the park, some puddles at the start line and a discovered bees' nest prior to the race! It was a true cross country meet with the tough conditions, and we loved it!
The meet brought four state qualifying teams from last year, as well as Arrowhead who didn't qualify but are a perennial competitive team. Our varsity squad competed well, finishing just 3 points behind Slinger (17th in state last year) and 18 points behind Tosa East (10th in state last year). Our top three boys put us in an awesome position. Putting three guys in the top 27 at this meet was great, considering our top guy at this meet last year was 30th place! Our 4 and 5 guys will move up a ton over the coming weeks (whoever those end up being!) and we will form a very solid team. Continue to believe in the team and embrace each day!
In the JV race, we had some guys get out fast! We loved it, and will work with them a bit on getting out fast AND smart this week. Ethan, Richard and Cole got out real well. It paid off big for Cole as he finished 18th and was our 6th man, breaking 20 minutes for the first time. Frank did an awesome job moving up throughout the race and getting a big PR! He was our 3rd man scoring for us. We had some other nice PR's from the frosh crew, and we will continue to see huge improvements over the season! There is NO LIMIT for anyone. Let's keep pushing each other to be the best we can be.
