Jim Ryun Invite Champions!!

Great result for both the Girls and Boys teams at the Jim Ryun Invite to kick off the XC season!  The Girls team surprised with a 3rd place finish, improving our team score by 40 points from last year.  The boys team had an incredible performance, scoring a team record meet low 36 points and winning the meet by over 60 points.  The summer training we have done this year really showed in the results!



Newcomers Shawn and Andrew went 1-2 in the boys AAU 1k race.  Alec, Gus and Titus finished 1st, 3rd and 4th in the boys 2k.   Emma Laffler made the podium with a 3rd place finish in the girls AAU 2k.

Josh, Oscar, Ricky, Zach, Joaquin and Katelin all finished in the top 15 in the Middle School 3k races.

Great Summer Training!

Thanks to all the Parents and Kids for the great summer of training!  Our first meet is next week!  We now have over 40 kids on the team and I’m very excited to see how everyone does at the first meet.

The first meet is the Jim Ryun Invite.  Jim Ryun won the Olympic Silver Medal at the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City.   Jim will be there at the race and poses with runners at the awards ceremony.  Jim was also the first American High School runner to run under 4 minutes in the Mile.  He’s a legendary athlete and perhaps the greatest high school athlete of all time.
