2009 MAC Invitational

McPherson Invitational Results

Several runners competed in their first varsity race at McPherson gaining valuable experience. According to coach Mick " I thought the kids we brought gave a good effort and competed well. This is a difficult course to PR on because of the hills, but several runners improved their times from this meet last year. We had two JV runners medal. Keagan had a good start and moved up several places during the race to finish 3rd. Erin just missed a medal earlier in the season, so it was good to see her rewarded today. These runners won't compete again until our home meet (10/3) which which will be another good challenge for us."

2009 El Dorado

Abby Schrag at El DoradoEl Dorado Invitational Results - October 10, 2009

"The conditions and the competition made for a very tough meet.  Overall, I thought the runners we brought gave a good effort.  The varsity girls had another impressive performance, finishing in 4th place.   Erin, Mallorie and Shannon, were right up there with some of the best runners in the state and turned in some impressive times.  Laci and Kelsi are still learning but they seem to be running with a little more confidence.  I was also happy for Abby Schrag who set an all-time PR and earned a medal in the JV girls race. The boys were without two of our top five runners and that made it very difficult team-wise.  We just need to get healthy and have confidence that we can compete well at League and Regionals." - Coach Richard Mick (Newton had 7 runners who didn't compete today due to illness or injury)
