Boys Cross Country has had a great season by spending most of their summer training and preparing to work as a team. The boys have had high placings this season including our home meet by placing 1st! They have also had other great meets including the Applejack meet by placing 3rd and placing 2nd at the Fairbault meet.

I had the chance to talk to one of the captains senior, Josh Wilson.

I asked them how they have worked better as a team this year and he said ” The summer training program was extremely and most of the team participated as well, secondly by supporting everyone on the team no matter what official roster you are whether you’re varsity or junior varsity. Also by being close as a team and doing many bonding events.

I then asked him what it is like being a captain he responded by saying ” Being a captain I help lead warmups, help people better their running, bring positivity, set a good example, and be encouraging.

He also told me their goals for this season saying that ” My personal goal for this season was to unite as a team no matter what personal record someone has. Also as a team for everyone to better themselves as a runner and a healthy lifestyle of living.

We then talked about sections coming up and what to expect. ” We are expecting big things coming sections because our team has depth with many of our top runners being underclassmen. Although there is some competition with other schools I think if we go into sections united as one big team big things will come.”

The last and final question I asked Josh was what has been the biggest challenge this season. ” The biggest challenge this season has been making sure everyone on the team is accountable and working 100% to get better as a runner.

After talking to Josh I believe the team has a great chance to do great things at sections. Their section tourney is October 26th and the team would love a crowd to support!
