Capital Area Championships - 10/18/18

Start of Combined JV Race

Start of Combined JV Race

Every year you are usually lucky enough to have a meet where seemingly everyone PR’s or simply has a great race. Coe-Brown went well for us, but nothing compares to what went down at the Capital Area meet on Thursday. I’m keeping this write-up brief as it is so overdue, and I already have a general write-up done for NHCC, but I did want to do something a bit MV-specific.

In the JV race, almost every runner ran a PR or season-best. Highlighting PR’s was Tomas’s monster run, almost placing as the top MV runner. Thanks to Abuth abdicating his spot, Tomas earned his way into the State Meet as a result of the effort. In the boys varsity race, everyone after DRen and MRen ran PR’s - in the case of Christian and Ethan HUGE PR’s, dropping into the 18’s for the first time! In the girls race, every runner except Tristan ran a PR, and Tristan ran her best race in a year or two. Highlighting this race was MacNeill...holy cow...running in her first varsity race clocked into the 24’s, completely skipping the 25’s. Guess what MacNeill - now we know! No slacking at practice!

Individually, Sophia CRUSHED the course record with a crazy 18:22, Emma jumped up to the #3 spot, and Maddy landed at #8. On the boys side David solidified his hold on #1, and Matt moved to #5. As a team, the girls ran to the #2 team time since the course was created in 2012, while the boys ran the #3 fastest.

What a great meet, and a great set-up for the State Meet!
