Cross Country State Championship

CC Lukas and Declan.jpgDeclan and Lukas ran their best race of the year in the state cross country meet! Success in the state cross country meet requires precision and self control. The leaders start fast, tempting many runners to do foolish things. Declan and Lukas ran to perfection, earning personal best times and all state honors. Declan hit the first mile in 5:03 in 17th place, while Lukas was a few seconds behind in 5:07 in 27th place. That was fast enough to have room to run without getting jostled, but slow enough to have enough left to work the middle of the race. Both boys slowed the second mile, with Declan running 5:32, but moving up to 16th place, and Lukas running 5:33, moving up to 25th place. The last mile got faster, with Declan running 5:29 and Lukas running 5:25. Declan finished in 16:45, good enough for a personal best and 19th place. Lukas finished in 16:47, good for a personal best by 32 seconds, and 22nd place. Both boys earned all state honors for finishing in the top 25. With those results, Declan moves up to our 4th best all time, and Lukas moves up to our 5th best all time. Complete results for the boys class A race are at MTEC.
