The Cross Country Girls had a great meet at Faith West this weekend as they took third place overall! They went up against the best of the best again. This included 2017 6A State runner up, St.Agnes, along with 4A State Champions, Woodlands Christian. Leading the way for the Crusaders was Freshman, L. Kastenschmidt, who finished 4th but only a short 15 seconds behind Saint Agnes’s top runner who placed first! Closely following was a tight pack that consisted of E. Engelbart (20th), K. Wendler (22nd) , A. Walker (25th) , E. Cooper (27th) , and R. Brownell (40th). Of those six Varsity ladies, four of them hit impressive personal record times (Kastenschmidt – 12:27, Engelbart – 13:10, Wendler – 13:22, and Cooper – 13:33).
The JV ladies did a Fantastic job as well. They placed 2nd overall! Three ladies finished in the top 20. M. Rasberry placed 9th, L. Lamendola placed 18th, and Chelsea Brice placed 20th. They too packed extremely well as E. Flora and K. Woodell were close behind taking 24th and 29th place! Of these ladies, three hit personal record times.
Coach Luevano was extremely happy with these results and how the girls physically and mentally competed at this point in the season, as their workouts have been extremely challenging.
